"Dota-Lan has been THE gathering of the German Dota community for six years now. Having been there multiple times myself, I can recommend anyone from nearby (that includes neighbor countries) to come, be it for the competition or just for fun," said Dennis "HolyMaster" Schumacher, one of the organisers for the event. The prize pool for the event gets up to 2,100€ in cash as well as some hardware for non-DotA events.
Dota-Lan is making sure that the Lan is inclusive and accessible to all skill levels with a Lan-Single-Instant-Game System (Lan-Challenger) that grants every player a rating and that adjusts according to you winning or losing the game. If you need a break from feeding, you can play various board games. Yes, even Mafia will be played with a high level of frequency.
There are 246 seats left with 165 people interested in them, so if you're in Germany or live nearby why not pop down to meet some fellow Dota fans?
