In the absence of large-scale Dota 2 competitions, WePlay! Esports, Epic Esports, and all of the partners involved in the Omega League are working to keep the momentum rolling.

Beginning on Oct. 28, the top groups in Europe/CIS will be back for another go-around for Omega League season two. This second iteration of the event will include a better tournament system and focus even more on the greatest level of Dota competitors.

Qualifiers will begin on Oct. 28, with the real occasion running in some kind up until grand finals day on Dec. 13.

” The very first season of Omega League has shown the selected format to be a success,” Legendary Esports product director Mark Averbukh said. “And we have actually improved it even further for the whole Dota community to enjoy. We can’t leave the groups with no competitors and the fans– without their favorite program, so the competition should go on! I wish to thank our partners– the greatest teams of Europe and CIS– for their trust. Can’t wait to see you soon, Dota 2 fans!”

As of now, season two will focus on EU/CIS with the Immortal and Magnificent departments making their return. The total prize swimming pool will be $550,000, matching the original prize pool of the very first season, with $500,000 for the Never-ceasing division and $50,000 for the Divine.

The overall groups for the Never-ceasing department will drop from 12 to 10, with all of the teams playing in a single group for the opening phase of the event. This will likewise up the overall number of matches from 30 to 45 regardless of having fewer groups.

To make up for the smaller sized preliminary number, the TOs are interweaving the Immortal and Divine departments even more, making a second set of qualifying matches for the Never-ceasing playoffs using the 5th to eighth-placed groups from Immortal and the top 4 teams from Divine.

The losing groups will get in the Divine department’s playoffs and bet that second prize pool versus the ninth and 10th-placed groups from Never-ceasing and the staying Magnificent groups who didn’t move into that second group for play-ins.

Alliance, Group Liquid, Nigma, OG, and Group Secret have already been verified as signing up with the season two Immortal department roster, with more teams to be announced soon. 2 participants will be decided through qualifier matches, where the finalists will play versus season one’s Divine Champ FlyToMoon for a spot in the leading department.

More information about the occasion, including broadcast, skill, and other rule changes will be revealed in the coming weeks.
