Dota 2 League Season 5 will be held during the International Consumer Electronics Show. Entry for the event is free of charge and will be held at the Emperor's Ballroom II in Caesar's Palace in Las Vegas, Nevada. The first 200 people through the door you will receive some swag courtesy of the title sponsor of the tournament.

As we reported before ru Team Empire was unable to obtain visas for two of their players so they were forced to withdraw from the LAN finals. A natural replacement was the squad that lost to them in the finals of the playoffs. However, ru Virtus.Pro Polar is also a Russian team and they faced the same problem as Empire - their support player ua Ilya 'Lil' Ilyuk didn't manage to secure visa, but we will see VP.P in Vegas with us Jimmy 'DeMoN' Ho playing as a standin.

The format of the tournament is a double elimination bracket with all matches being best of three, aside from the grand finals that will be played in best of five format. English commentary will be provided by Ayesee together with Tralf and you can watch it here. The schedule is as follows:
