Swiss DC will be adding a German and CIS League to their repertoire after this summer. In addition to their growing reach, the prize pools for the leagues have also grown. Germany will start with a base prize pool of EUR 30,000 while CIS region will enjoy a base of EUR 60,000.
The Swiss DC has announced the addition of two more leagues – Germany and CIS.
This will change now, as SwissDC is proud to announce two additional leagues for two additional regions! In the last quarter of 2016 we will start similar competitions in Germany and the CIS-Region, in which the teams there are able to compete. Germany and especially the CIS-Region, are most important regions, as a lot of the player base, both amateur and professional, stems from there. If we want to see such likes as the famous Danil “Dendi” Ishutin and Kuro “KuroKy” Takhasomi again, there is a dire need to provide competitive environments in which they can be forged.
The German League will feature a base prize pool of EUR 30,000, with each team being able to add an extra 20 euros for each point earned in the league. The German league will be open to players and teams from Switzerland and Austria, as well. Alexander ”Blacklight” English will be casting the German Dota League.
For the CIS region, the league will feature a base prize pool of EUR 60,000 and the additional 20 euros per point earned.
The leagues will begin in the last quarter of 2016 with more specific details to follow.
Swiss DC League
In March, the Swiss Dota Community announced two leagues with a combined prize pool of more than 15,000 CHF (approximately $15,175) for two seasons. As part of the continued effort to promote and enhance the local esports scene, one match from either league was broadcast weekly on the Swiss national television station “Joiz”.
With the success of their current leagues, the Swiss Predator League, SAE Institute league, new studio and the Mountain Trail Challenge 2015 last April, the organization continues to seek out ways to bring about a stronger community and more exposure to the growing esports scene.
