Fans of DOTA 2 and Fortnite can now register for open tournaments sponsored by Red Bull that will feature cash prizes.
On July 27-29, The International Centre in Toronto, Ont. will be abuzz with high-level DOTA 2 and Fortnite competition and spectating. The first-ever Red Bull AdrenaLAN tournaments featuring those games will be held.
Interested parties can now register for both/either tournament, which are open to the general public. The BYOC (Bring Your Own Computer) tournaments details are as follows.
Registered players are welcome to start arriving at the venue on Friday, July 27. Sixteen team slots are up for grabs for players to compete in two days of matches on Saturday, July 28 and Sunday, July 29 from 10 a.m. – 9 p.m. ET. The competition will start with a randomly-assigned group stage where teams will battle in a single-elimination, round-robin series to determine the top seed of each group. All teams will then advance to the next bracket, which will be a best-of-three double-elimination tourney that is based on results from the first round. The top two teams from the double-elimination round will advance to a best-of-five grand finals and compete for their share of $5,000 CAD (approximately $3,918 US).
Again, registered players are welcome to start arriving at the venue on Friday, July 27. Four hundred players will battle in more than 200 total duo competitions over the course of Saturday, July 28 and Sunday, July 29 with the battle bus leaving every five minutes from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. ET each day. The weekend of duos contains no roster restrictions allowing players the option to switch teams. The winning team of each match will take home $200 CAD (approximately $156 US) and teams with the most overall victory royales will close out the weekend with a winner’s match.
In addition to a great opportunity to play these titles on a stage only Red Bull can create while potentially winning some cash and building a greater following on Twitch, this event represents a tremendous chance to connect with other fans of these franchises. All of those elements combine for what should be an adrenaline-filled weekend.
