In just a few hours, Red Bull will begin hosting one of the biggest Dota 2 LAN event in Seattle, second only to Valve’s own Dota 2 International earlier this year. The tournament isn’t your usual royal rumble of pro players either. Instead, over 100 everyday players have signed up to take part, with a sprinkling of seasoned professional players.
That’s not all either. Teams will be completely randomised after each round, with the attending pros being seeded in each of the teams throughout of the day. Players personal stats will be recorded, with the personal best nabbing an all expenses paid trip to any single Red Bull LAN event in 2015.
The pool of players will be a mix of everyday amateurs, professional players and eSports personalities; attending will be players such as Jimmy “DeMoN” Ho, FluffnStuff, Chuan, and RotterdaM.
After every heat, the players and teams will shuffle. Winning a match will award each of the teams players with a $10 Steam Wallet Card, which can be won multiple times during the event. For the single and lucky player who remains undefeated in every game, they will bag a all expense paid for trip to a Red Bull LAN event of their choosing in 2015. If there’s a tie between several players, they’ll duke it out in a game of sudden death to decide the victor.
If you live in the Seattle area, you might want to check out the event. While all 100 player tickets are sold out, there will be a waitlist for spectators to potentially join the tournament if any players don’t show up. You can find out when and where you need to go right here.
