SMM reveals details for Grand Final

posted by Tezzeret, 1 year ago
Still wondering if SMM's Grand National DotA Tournament is happening or not? Well it definitely is happening as SMM have just released the press release for their tournament. Full details available below.




While the exact venue have not been released yet, it is confirmed however that it will be held in the state of Selangor, Malaysia from the 13th to the 16th of December. Considered to be one of the most prestigous events for WarCraft 3 DotA, SMM pulled out all the stops this year and increased the prize pool once again offering a $18,000 bounty to the first place finisher, up from $16,000 of last year's.

As usual, the grand finals will be open to international participants and registration for international teams will be opened in due time. Local participants will have to play three regional qualifiers or place top four in SMM's 1Malaysia DotA Championship.

Prize Pool
1st Place – RM 57,000.00 (~$18,000) + Gold Medal + Sponsored Prizes
2nd Place - RM 25,500.00 (~$8,000) + Silver Medal + Sponsored Prizes
3rd Place – RM 16,500.00 (~$5,000) + Bronze Medal + Sponsored Prizes

Seems like Joindota editors don't get the point of this site.
This is your motto, "Your daily dose of Dota 2"

So there's no point of this article being here, most people (on this site) have quit DotA, and don't follow the scene. Seems like you should too.

I hate these people. Are you new to dota or what? Have you started playing a month ago? Seriously, stop the hate, respect dota 1. I can't even imagine that if somebody has been following the dota competitive scene for years could act like this.

The simplicity of DotA1 is what makes it better. the competitive scene of DotA2 is what makes it better. DotA2 has better graphics but DotA1 has better animations. but still the same game <3 both! hehehe!

ChuaN said they will still play DotA1 because they like it, not because of the money.

geez .. so many retards ... i mean i understand that you may not have played dota 1 or simply just like dota 2 better but you have to understand that dota 1 is the base for dota 2. dota 2 is not open to the public yet wich is why there is still a dota 1 scene going on ..people like you are the reason esports wont grow as quickly as everyone including yourselves would like.

edit: this is not meant for everyone obviously .. you know who you are and before you get all offended and start bashing and flaming back i would like you to reflect on why are you offended when i havent even mentioned your names.
