The 7th installment of the The Summit series is here!

It looks like NESO Galaxy Battles isn’t the only pro Dota 2 tournament that fans will be looking forward to this week as in a few hours, the 7th installment of Beyond the Summit studio’s The Summit tournament series will kick off its day 1 right at BTS’ home in Los Angeles, California.

Originally conceived back in 2014, The Summit is a regular premier Esports tournament that invites pro teams from both the East and Western pro scene fronts for a week of Dota 2 action, and as well high-quality entertainment.


Not to mention the weird family get-together.

Participating teams

A total of 8 teams, which seems to be standard for most tournaments these days, will be participating in DOTA Summit 7, starting with defending champion who, obviously, got themselves a direct invite together with teams ViCi Gaming.J and Team Secret. The other 5 teams will be hailing from, you guessed it, the different regional qualifiers, except maybe for team Empire who qualified by winning the LootBet Invitational tournament. North America, Europe, China, and SEA will be duly represented in DOTA Summit 7 with NA to be represented by Team NP, Europe by Natus Vincere, team LGD Gaming as China’s flag bearer, and for SEA, well, err, team Digital Chaos, who replaced team Clutch Gamers after the latter failed to secure their Visas in time for the event.


But hey Abed is in DC so PINOY PRIDE!
