Dota 2 Majors
Valve originally announced the implementation of the Majors system at the end of April 2015. The concept is believed to be a proper solution to some significant problems in tournament quality and control that had been voiced in recent times.
Over the last five years, The International has become the pinnacle moment for the world of professional Dota. Now the excitement of the biggest event in esports is coming to the Majors, a series of seasonal marquee tournaments, which will take place throughout the year and around the globe. Dota’s newest tradition begins this fall with the Frankfurt Major.
The first Dota Major was held in Frankfurt, Germany, at the Festhalle Messe – a multi-purpose hall with an area of 6,000 square meters, which can accommodate up to 13,500 visitors. Sixteen teams competed for a total prize-pool of $3,000,000, with ESL Gaming in charge of production. OG made history when they took the championship title, becoming the first qualified team to clinch a Valve-sponsored championship title.
The first Major of the new year, post TI6 will be hosted by PGL at Wang Theater in Boston, USA. Wang Theater is located in a historic 1925 building that seats 3,600 people.
PGL was also responsible for the third and final major held before TI6 in June in Manila, Philippines. The event was praised for it’s success and professionalism giving the production company another shot at hosting one of the most coveted events of the year.
PGL is based out of Bucharest, Romania and has also been responsible for DreamHack Bucharest from 2012-2015 and DreamHack Cluj-Napoca in 2015.
