EPICENTER 2017 – Dota 2 – Preview, Schedule and Betting Odds


Dota 2 - EPICENTER 2017 Logo You are here:

At the beginning of July the second edition of the EPICENTER 2017 is going to start. Last year, EPICENTER managed to convince with their tournament games and especially with their superb presentation. We are excited to see what the organizers thought of this year. 10 teams are going to compete for a price pool of $500,000. All those teams have a really good form and of course they are looking to impress both viewers and Valve, as EPICENTER is one of the last tournaments before the Dota 2 Ti7 – 2017. This means this is one of the last chances for the teams to enhance and refine their strategies before participating in the biggest Dota 2 tournament of the year. 6 teams are invited by the organizers and 4 teams managed to qualify themselves in the regional qualifiers. There are qualifiers for Americas, Europe and the CIS-Region, SEA and China.
