DotaPit Season 3 is back in action tonight, after a long hiatus, with the Lower Bracket Round 2 featuring Mousesports and Cloud 9. The next match will be the long awaited series between Team Secret and Evil Geniuses, on June 14, at 21:00 CEST.
The tournament series started back in January 2015, but after months of reschedules due to various LAN events and the TI5 qualifiers, the third season of DotaPit has finally been able to resume.
Tonight will be the first game in over one month. The previous game took place on May 5, in the Lower Brackets, when Mousesports (then Team Tinker) defeated Team Empire, 2:1.
Tonight’s match with Mousesports will include Max “qojqva” Broecker who had announced on June 4 he would be taking a break and parting ways with the team. There has been no official announcement about a replacement but the team played with Tyler “TC” Cook for the MLG Pro League Championship, at X-Games.
