The DotA 2 Summit 7 announcement and the IEM Sydney teams announcement are our main topics featured in our eSports Boulevard News Week 14.
The newest iteration of the BTS series has just been revealed by Beyond the Summit. The event is set to take place just before the TI7 qualifiers. June is the scheduled month of the event. An awesome teaser has indicated the dates of The Summit 7.
From June 14-18th, Beyond the Summit is looking well prepared to host the fan and player favorite event once again in the idyllic hills of the Los Angeles area. Since 2014, the event has been a constant fixture and has evolved into the favorite event of players and fans alike. Any further updates of the events haven’t revealed yet by BTS.
The timing of the tournament leaves just days before the open qualifiers of The International 7. The teams that haven’t received the direct invite to The International and are participating in The Summit 7 will be opting for a boot camp in the US.
The regions have been locked for the Kiev Major qualifiers, and a rule has been devised which requires teams to have at least three of their five players from the selected region. Mexico, Canada, and the United States of America define the region for NA.
North America continues to struggle with the ability to fill the qualifiers. Just two days before the start of open qualifiers and one day after the announcements of teams was made, both WanteD and Team Red withdrew from the tournament, leaving only three teams competing in the regional qualifiers.
Out of the six participating regions, NA was the most poorly participated, made evident by a little over 100 teams competing for the four slots.
The six professional teams that will be involved in the Intel Extreme Masters Gaming tour held in Sydney, Australia, have been revealed with the event set to take place in May.
North, Renegades, Faze Clan, Astralis, SK Gaming, and Optic Gaming are the six teams who have been announced. To sum up their winnings over the years from the CS: GO competitions, they have won over $3.8 million, with $1.4 million earned by Astralis. The 12th season of IEM’s global circuit will be completed by the IEM Masters Sydney.
Poland, China, South Korea, and the US will be the other stops of the global circuits. The Qudos Bank Arena will be hosting the main event taking place in Sydney from May 6th to May 7th. With an astounding prize pool of AUD $260,000, the event is officially the largest professional gaming tournament ever in Australia.
The best-of-three format will be set in the semifinal matches taking place on May 6th, and the best-of-five format will be used in the Grand Final taking place on the 7th of May. A week from the grand finals, group stages will take place to decide which teams will fill the 4 spots of the semifinals.
