Telkom Digital Gaming League (or DGL for those that prefer things short and sweet) have dated their Dota 2 Masters Cup for 19 to 21 May 2017.
The event will see the six qualifying Masters teams face off against the two wildcard teams for their share of R110,000. The tournament will be taking place at the DGL Studios in Midrand on the aforementioned dates and will be streamed live via YouTube and Twitch.
The tournament will be a double elimination bracket and is the “first planned Major of the year, on route to the Dota 2 Masters Grand Final in July and R550,000 cash prize pool.”
The teams qualified for the cup based on the following:
The top six (6) Dota 2 teams from Leg 1 of the DGL Masters earned direct invites to the upcoming LAN event and will be joined by the top two (2) finishers from last week’s Community Shield online qualifier – the culmination of the new DGL Proving Grounds wildcard system.
There are plenty of unknown or still to be confirmed details – like the prize pool breakdown, stream links, talent, schedule, whether the event will allow live viewers at the venue and more – but for now, if you’re a Dota 2 fan, there’s a date to book in your diary.
