Organized by Dota2Romania, the third season of Romanian Dota Pro League will begin on October 5th with open qualifiers and will culminate with a LAN event held in Bucharest on November 13.
Aiming to develop and help the Romanian competitive scene to grow, RPDL offers 16 places in the main event for the teams that will play in the open qualifiers. Held on FACEIT and starting next week, on the 5th of October, the open qualifiers feature eight separate rounds where winners and runners up of each of the rounds will advance into the main event group stage. Open qualifiers registrations are tax free and can bedone here. Of course, only a full Romanian roster is eligible to register.
The main event will take place from October 28th to November 7th in a GSL group stage (Double Elimination Bracket) format. The 16 qualified teams will be split in four groups of four and only the winner of each group will advance into the LAN playoffs.
Romanian Dota Pro League’s playoffs will be held on November 13 at the Nexus Gamers Pub, in Bucharest, Romania.
Although the prize pool is just $1,500, RPDL becomes the first ever Romanian tournament to benefit from a crowdfunding system. Romanian community members can help increase the prize pool via the Matcherino platform as follows:
- For each member of the Romanian community who uses the “RDPL3” coupon, Matcherino will increase the prize pool by $1 (limited to $200)
- Users who are logged into Twitch on Matcherino can gather points for every watched game on the Dota2Romania stream. The points can be used to buy the rewards offered by the organizers. The equivalent in dollars of the rewards will be added to the total prize pool
- Through donations
