A note about this weekend's events:
Due to the western qualifier for The International 3 we will be delaying all Curse Dota 2 invitational matches until after their completion each day. This means that we will be starting at 22:00 CET 4:00 EST each day. We also regret to announce that NaVi had a previous commitment at a LAN event this weekend and did not inform admins before accepting the event invite, so they have been disqualified, This means 3rd place team RoX.KIS will be rejoining dignitas and Team Liquid in the finals weekend.
Our first game Saturday night will be dignitas vs. Team Liquid with a 1 game advantage to Team Liquid because they have been in the winners bracket the entire time. The lose of that match will play RoX.KIS for a spot in the grand finals immediately after that match. Then Sunday after TI3 qualifiers conclude we will play our BO5 finals.
We hope all of you will tune in to see the conclusion of our event, and we wish all the teams involved good luck!
Curse and Alienware are proud to present the Curse Dota 2 Invitational!
In a series of events spanning three weekends, eight teams will face off in a double-elimination bracket for a whopping $10,000 prize pool.
Who will reign supreme? You'll just have to stay tuned!
