Fragbite Masters announced w/ $31,000 prizepool

posted by Sun_Tzu, 2 years ago
After last year's THOR Open, Swedish e-Sports site is back with a new online tournament for the end of the year, splitting it's time between three titles with the qualifiers and groupstages of Dota 2 to be played in October, followed by the Finals from the 10th to 11th of December.

The Fragbite Masters will be a half-invite half-qualifier tournament where Dota 2 is taking the top billing with it's 200,000 SEK (~$31,000) prizepool, ahead of StarCraft 2's 160,000 SEK and CS:GO's 140,000 SEK. Qualifiers for the tournament will run over the first two weeks of October, followed by groupstages being played over the second two weeks of October, matching qualifier and invited teams for the right to partake in the finals in December. The schedule is easily visualized here.

Few other details have been made available, except to say that livestreams will be available, asking any community casters to reach out to them who want to help covering the qualifiers. No further word about who will be contracted to cover the groupstage and finals for the event.

The prizepool is of note as it is the largest online prizepool for a Western Competition to date (ahead of The Defense 4 which had a $25,000 prizepool). It is also the second largest online prizepool overall, after the Alienware Cup's $60,000 first outing.


1. 100 000 SEK (~$15,500)
2. 50 000 SEK (~$7,700)
3. 20 000 SEK (~$3,100)
4. 8 000 SEK (~$1,200)
5-8. 5 500 SEK (~$900)
