The format of the Esportal Dota 2 League LAN finals will feature no directly invited teams, and all the participants were to be determined through three invitational and three open qualifiers with not only the ticket to the offline finals for the winners but also a bit of cash in the process. One spot is still up for grabs in the last remaining qualifier, which will finalise six of the eight participants. The manner in which the final two spots will be decided has to be announced, but will most likely be through some form of ladder.
The following five teams have already secured a spot at the LAN finals:
The date of the last remaining open qualifier is yet to be announced but it looks like it might be a stacked one as teams like Power Rangers*, Alliance, Vega Squadron *, Virtus.Pro* have been trying hard to qualify but still failed to do so. The event will be played in Sweden which should be even bigger motivation for Jonathan 'Loda' Berg and crew to grab a ticket to it.
