DOTA 2 DreamLeague Season 21: All you need to know

DreamLeague Season 21, organized by ESL, is the latest event that has the community buzzing. With a whopping $1 million USD prize pool and the best teams from around the globe competing, it’s an event that no Dota 2 enthusiast would want to miss.

DreamLeague, a long-standing Dota 2 series, is renowned for its intense competition and high stakes. This season, 12 elite teams will compete in a week-long online tournament, vying for the lion’s share of the grand prize. As we inch closer to The International, DreamLeague offers a final glimpse of the teams set to compete in Seattle.

DOTA 2 DreamLeague Season 21 Format

DreamLeague Season 21 is structured in two main stages:

  • Group Stage (Sept. 18 to 20): The 12 participating teams are divided into two groups of six. They compete in a round-robin best-of-two format. The top two teams from each group advance to the upper bracket of the playoffs, while the middle two proceed to the lower bracket. The bottom two teams from each group will face elimination.
  • Playoffs (Sept. 21 to 24): This stage features a double-elimination bracket. All matches are best-of-three, except for the grand final, which is a best-of-five. Teams in the lower bracket face the threat of elimination with every loss.

Teams to Watch

The teams participating in DreamLeague Season 21 have been selected based on ESL’s Pro Tour rankings. From Western Europe, we have powerhouses like Team Liquid, Tundra Esports, and OG. Eastern Europe is represented by teams like Team Spirit and 9Pandas. Other notable participants include North America’s Shopify Rebellion and South America’s Evil Geniuses.

Prize Distribution

The total prize pool for DreamLeague Season 21 stands at an impressive $1 million USD. The winning team will walk away with $300,000, while the second and third-placed teams will receive $175,000 and $120,000, respectively. Even teams that finish in the 11th place will earn a respectable $25,000.

For fans eager to follow the action, DreamLeague Season 21 matches will be broadcast live on platforms like Twitch and YouTube. Multiple languages, including English, Russian, and Chinese, will be available to cater to the global audience.
