ESL One Frankfurt is now just around the corner. With it being held at the Commerzbank Arena which can seat a whopping 52,000 screaming football fans, just imagine tons of rabid Dota 2 fans screaming for their team to win. Not to mention other fan events like artists workshop, cosplay competition and signing sessions, it will be quite hard to keep track of all the schedules. Below is the schedule of events for ESL One.
Up for grabs in the tournament is a monstrous US$150,000.00 base prize pool, with the prize pool increasing every time an ESL One Compendium is bought. As of writing, the base prize pool is now up to US$200,000.00!!!
Due to the short duration of this tournament. There will be no long group stage where every team will face each other in order to determine its seeding in the bracket. There will be no losers bracket in this one, you lose and it will be game over for your team. It will be a best of three match during the eliminations and semi-finals and a best of five finals. Seen below are how the 8 teams are seeded.
As you can see on the schedule. The top four teams are going to face each other in the elimination stage. I would like to say that whoever wins in the Alliance vs Cloud 9 and Evil Geniuses vs Natus Vincere games are most likely to be facing each other in the best of five championship.
