Europe Biggest Dota 2 Tournament ESL One Hamburg 2018

Announcing our Third Dota 2 stop of 2018 - ESL One Hamburg.ESL One and Dota 2 return to Germany with whole new city to conquer.
During the season, ESL was subject to several bouts of backlash. The first instance was over the exclusive Facebook stream deal and banning others from broadcasting the event, in which the tournament organizers were forced to issue an apology over and adjust their approach. The second was several weeks later because of their scheduling decisions for ESL One Katowice - choosing to have only the last two days, and only four series played on the main stage in front of an audience. Once again, the organization was pressured by the community to remedy the situation, adding an additional series to the last day.
Noted areas of improvement for this round include:

  • From 8 to 16 teams competing
  • From 2 to 3 arena days
  • From 4 to 6 overall tournament days.

Many fans are already speculating that the event will once again be included in the next season's Pro Circuit system. More than likely, it is expected that Valve will make some adjustments to the number of events and heavy scheduling for the new year. So far, there has been no official word from ESL or Valve on the next season DPC.
It is also expected that Virtus.pro will be one of the first to receive a direct invite to the event. The team claimed two of the three titles thus far and are among the favorites coming into ESL One Birmingham at the end of the month.
