DotaPit Season 4 Tournament Overview

Dota Pit Season 4 BannerDotaPit is one of the biggest tournaments in terms of participating teams; more than 100 Dota 2 teams had to fight for months for the unique 8 spots available at the Main Event. It is one of the few championships that give amateur teams from all around the world a chance to compete for a +$100,000 prize pool and a chance to become a relevant lineup in the competitive scene. This Season 4 will be played in Croatia, which is a big change of environment for teams that just returned from the Shanghai Major in China. This tournament promises to be more relaxing for teams like Secret, EG, OG, MVP Phoenix, CoL and VP since it features a smaller prize pool and it takes place closer from home—with the exception of the Koreans MVPP.

There is already something different about this tournament: there are no Chinese teams. This is something we predicted after seeing their performance at the Shanghai Major. Right now the Chinese competitive scene is in the middle of a post-tournament shuffle crisis after letting down their supporters. The Koreans MVP Phoenix, after having a better performance in the Major, are going to represent Asia in their place.

Interestingly, the qualified teams from America and Asia had good runs in the Shanghai Major and are once again competing against big teams like OG, Secret and EG. This time things will take in a scenario with less stress. CoL and MVP Phoenix had a good experience in a more demanding environment back in China, so this tournament shouldn’t be a harder for them.

We are yet to see a good performance by MVP Phoenix playing in a remoter country. It might be safe to say that CoL will play more comfortably since they won’t need too much adaptation to Croatia. Nevertheless, these two qualified teams are likely to get a better place in the tournament than Na’Vi and Empire, and are certainly capable of beating some of the invited teams. We shouldn’t be surprised if one of them gets to the top 2 positions in the tournament after seeing their performance in the Winter Major.
