What is joinDOTA League?
jDL is a competitive Dota 2 league for anyone that wants to participate. Whether you are a professional or a casual player, everyone is welcome in the league.
We divide the league up by skill so that all the matches are fair, but also so that you cannot advance without truly testing your mettle. If you want to make sure your team lands in the correct skill bracket, we have a Calibration Phase to improve your placement. When you sign up, you must ensure that all five players confirm participation.
Season 16 will utilize the same streamlined format as in Season 15, with the season being split into four phases.
- "Phase 0" - Calibration Phase — May 20th
- Phase 1 — Starts on May 27th
- Phase 2 — Starts on June 24th
- Phase 3 — Starts on July 22nd
joinDOTA League Season 16 runs overall from May 27th until August 14th.
Sign-ups are live right now and end on May 21st. The Calibration Phase begins on May 20th and will conclude on May 21st if more than 5 rounds are necessary. For any questions, see our Calibration Phase breakdown.
The leagues for Season 16 will be played back-to-back starting with Americas, then Europe, then Asia. As always, the teams will be competing for a total prizepool of $12,000:
- 1st in each region — $2,000
- 2nd in each region — $1,250
- 3rd in each region — $750
