Busy tournament schedule leads to Dota2 teams dropping out

Changes announced for the SL i-League and DreamLeague participants. A domino effect of drop-outs and surprise invites have caused quite a few changes into the busy pre-The International tournament scene the first being due to mousesports dropping out of SLTV i-League Invitational due to schedule conflicts (possibly an invite to a bigger tournament that is yet to be announced) the Swedes from The Alliance will be replacing them for the $100,000 tournament in Shanghai, China later this week. As a reminder, our very own TNC Pro Team is also going to be competing at the same tournament.


However, due to The Alliance standing in for mouseports, they will have to drop out of DreamLeague Season 7, claiming that their deciding factor was that i-League would give them more experience heading into the ever-crucial pre-TI season. Elements Pro Gaming will be replacing them at DreamLeague. Alliance has yet to play any matches at DreamLeague, so EPG will be able to fill-in for them without much trouble. DreamLeague is to be played in a league format – a long series of round-robin best-of-two’s stretched out over a schedule that spans a few weeks. Perfect for filling-in those dates where teams aren’t on LAN. The top three teams from the European leg will be joined by the top team on the North American leg in the playoffs at DreamHack Atlanta, taking place as one of the last tournaments before The International 2017, on July 21-22, and features a $175,000 prize pool.

The full schedule can be found HERE - subject to change daily to accommodate team needs.


The LAN event will take place in US for the first time - during DreamHack Atlanta, on July 21st and 22nd. The teams will be competing for a slice of the $175,000 total prize pool.
1st place: $80,000
2nd place: $45,000
3rd place: $30,000
4th place: $20,000
