Kiev to host the first-ever Minor - SL i-League Invitational S3
The first tournament of the brand new Dota 2 competitive season format will be held in Kiev from the 12th to 15th of October, revisiting the same illustrious city where VG.R stormed to victory at the first SL i-League Invitational and where OG claimed their fourth Valve Major.
The SL i-League Invitational Season 3 will be the first-ever Minor tournament in which teams will compete not only for a championship title and prize money, but also to gain valuable Qualifying Points for the next International.
In accordance with Valve's requirements for official tournaments, the SL i-League Invitational will start with open qualifiers in all six regions; Europe, CIS, North America, South America, China and Southeast Asia. The winners will then pass on to the next stage - the closed qualifiers, where the competition will heat up as invited teams join the fray. The highest performing team in every region will receive an invitation to the $300,000 LAN Finals in Ukraine.
In addition to the six champions of their regions we will be inviting two more top flight teams as direct invites to the SL i-League Invitational S3.
