The Oceanic Dota Cup expands tournament, increases prizepool
Silicon Sports are very happy to announce today a new structure for the Oceanic Dota Cup which has been successfully running since the beginning of the year.
Currently, we have been running the weekly cups as standalone events. Our cups have always been designed with the purpose of promoting a stable and competitive scene in the Oceanic region, and the steps we are taking today are in line with that vision. We’ve also addressed a number of issues that have arisen throughout the year with our current cups.
The new structure will now be a month long event, running over four consecutive Sundays. The first 3 weeks will run roughly the same as they do now, with $50 going to first place, but placings will earn you points into the end of month final. Week 4 will take the top 8 teams and put them into a showdown to take out a first place prize of $200. Here’s a little breakdown of the information.
Weeks 1-3 – Qualifiers
BO1 single elimination bracket going into a BO3 grand final.
First Place: $50 and direct placement into Week 4.
* First place winner cannot play in any further weeks until the Week 4 final.
Second Place (Grand Final Loser): 4 points
Third/Fourth Place (Semi-Final Loser): 2 points
Fifth/Sixth Place (Quarter-Final Loser): 1 point
Week 4 – Grand Final
First Place winners of Weeks 1-3, plus the top 5 point holders from that time.
* In the case of ties for points, priority is given to those who entered the most weeks, if still tied a coin flip will determine which team advances.
BO3 single elimination bracket
First Place: $200
Sign ups will now be completed via the Silicon Sports website, and sign ups open immediately for Week 1 of our newly structured tournament via this page for Week 1.
