The Dota 2 Champions League Announced

Natus Vincere and have announced a partnership between the two organizations earlier today for a new tournament: The Dota 2 Champions League. The top 10 teams from around the world will be invited to square off for a prize pool of $50,000. On top of the already healthy prize, 25% of the ticket sales will be added to increase the bounty that the league has to offer. This event is set to kick off on October 16th.

Both CEO's shared their thoughts on the upcoming tournament:

Natus Vincere’s CEO – ua Alexander "ZeroGravity" Kokhanovskyy:

“Our main goal will be making an online league, with a new level of quality. We believe that players and teams need to receive additional bonuses for participating in such projects, which will stimulate them to play on 200%. We are using Valve’s technique as well, and we are sure that crowd funding should become a part of any big tournament.”

Comment from’s CEO – ru Anton "Sneg1" Cherepennikov:

“All the workers of our project, starting with the management, play DotA and really like the game. When we planned the league, our main goal was making a quality product for both viewers and participants."

The ten teams will be divided into two groups to compete in a best of three round robin format. The groupstage is followed by a best of three relegation between the second and third placed team and finally best of five semifinals and grand final.

If it's top 10 teams from around the world then VP shouldn't be invited to their own tournament.
