Cebu’s Domination Dota 2 League to feature a PHP 210,000 Prize Pool
Cebu Dota2 players are in for a treat as UVNS and the E-Sports Alliance announces The Domination League
The University of the Visayas – New School and the E-Sports alliance, in partnership with Sunstar Cebu and SM Seaside city, announced last March 16, 2017, their upcoming Dota2 event called The Domination League.
First announced back in February, the Domination League will be a 3-day tournament and will be open to all Dota 2 players. It will have a small registration fee, with the amount yet to be announced, and will be held on April 28, 29 and 30 in the Cube Atrium of SM Seaside City.
The tournament will have a grand prize pool of Php 210,000, where the champions of the tournament will receive Php 120,000, while the 2nd and 3rd placers will receive Php 60,000 and Php 30,000, respectively.
The tournament organizers are hyping up this event as the “first world-class Dota2 tournament in Cebu” and they are correct as Cebu has never had a tournament as big as this. Sure, we’ve had smaller in-house tournaments and we’ve even had showmatches between professional Dota2 teams such as Mineski, and MVP Pheonix, although we have never had a tournament of this magnitude before.
Aside from the Dota2 tournament, the event will also have a cosplay competition, a 1 vs 1 tournament, a 10 vs 10 tournament, and a girls only tournament.
This tournament will, for sure, aid the growth of the already rapidly growing eSports scene in our country which has blossomed well in the past couple of years. This tournament will also help people realize that eSports is not only something you can waste your time on, but it’s also something that you can make a career of if you make the right choices.
