Over one month, America's best teams have been competing head to head online for a $10,000 prize pool. The regular season has now come to an end and the top six teams will advance to the playoffs that will kick off in the night of the 3rd of July at 01:00 CEST (2nd of July at 7:00 pm EDT) with us Typical Mistakes taking on the last South American hope pe Denial e-Sports.


In line with expectations, the usual north american powerhouses claimed the top three placings for the groupstages. However, in a slight surprise to those who like to make light of the "EG Throw", us Evil Geniuses have showed a dominating performance after going 16-0 so far in the ADL. With such a stellar record, they've been seeded straight into the semi-finals alongside second place us Team Liquid, who are set to begin their bootcamp in Las Vegas. Not to be outdone us Team Dignitas have also headed out to Vancouver for their bootcamp, ensuring that we will see the highest quality of North American Dota during the playoffs.

The only South american squad able to place in the top six was Bigpoint Battle Winner pe Artyk Gaming, who found a new sponsor in Denial e-Sports during the event.

All playoff games will be best-of-five series including the Grand Finals. The games will be casted by NEODota's us Travis 'Maut' Bueno via the American Dota League channel.
