ProDota Cup Season 2 is ready to get things started for the second season. Both STARK and EWOLVES will return for a second chance to claim victory. Weeks after the first season successfully concluded, the open qualifiers for Europe will take place January 16-19. The main event is scheduled for January 22th to 29th for the European Region and January 18th-29th in the NA region.
Only a few weeks after ProDota Cup Season 1 wrapped up, crowning Shazam and Team Spirit champions in their respective regions, ProDota Cup Season 2 is ready to take on the new year.
The second season will undergo some changes to the format overall and between each of the regions.
We are excited to be back with a second season so soon. This season will be even better with a few changes we made based off our experiences from last! Thanks to all participating and good luck!
