The Premier League Season 4!
We are back with another exciting season of professional Dota 2!
The Premier League Season 4 will feature 8 invited top-tier teams, along with 2 teams that joined the competition through open qualifiers, fighting through 2 months of almost day-to-day action to grab the title. An increased prize pool of $10,000 should add some oil to the fire, too!
David “Blaze” Dillon and his co-caster Pranav “Rainmaker” Prasad will be guiding us through all the clashes with professional commentary containing both the appeal that holds the average viewer tied to the chair and the technical detail that satisfies the appetites of more advanced players. Simultaneously, Versuta will be covering the matches for our Russian viewers.
To provide an extra boost to the production quality, we’ve also refurbished the site a bit and added/changed a few neat features:
- the matches calendar on the front page, so you never get lost in all the fixtures;
- a reworked countdown-till-next-match timer to make it somewhat more conspicuous and
- a slight redesign to make everyone’s reading less tiring for the eyes.
The regular phase of the new season will start the 10th of February (as you can check in the aforementioned calendar widget) and finish the 19th of April, while the Playoffs are set for April 27th and April 28th.
The league format will be identical to last season’s format – every team plays against every other team and the top 4 best performing teams enter the culminating Playoffs tournament at the end of the season. The prize is distributed in the following manner:
Online tickets for The Premier League Season 4 will be available in the Dota 2 store, and there’s a little surprise we’ve got prepared for you. That’s all we’re giving away for now, but don’t despair – an update on this is coming very soon, follow us on Facebook and/or Twitter in case you don’t want to keep hitting the refresh button.
