Posted at 12:20 AM, Tuesday 10th March 2015 by Nik

Hi everyone, if you're interested in playing dota 2 and you know enough people to get a team together then this is the tournament for you. On the 1st of April we will be starting our very own Dota 2 tournament.

One pair of teams will be nominated to play in the Harry Heath Room on Wednesday each fortnight, so all teams must be available to be present for this. For groups not nominated to play on the Wednesday, their matches may be played at their convenience.
Each game at Uni will take place at 6:30pm, with the players arriving at 6

The first round will begin on the 1st, and results of games not played at uni must be provided by the following Wednesday (8th April). The following round will begin on the 15th, and we'll run fortnightly until we're done.

The tournament style will be single elimination, best of 3 games.

This time around we will be using challonge (<!-- m --><a class="postlink" href="http://challonge.com/EGGDOTA2v1">http://challonge.com/EGGDOTA2v1</a><!-- m -->) in order to collect signups. Anyone can sign up provided they have a team!

Entry fee is $5 per team member and it goes towards the prize pool.

Don't have a team? Feel free to leave a post on the event wall to find others looking for a team.
