The Gamers8 event for Dota 2 is on the horizon. The $4 million USD tournament commences on July 20 where the best Dota 2 teams in the world clash for victory in a LAN setting.

We’ll also be seeing ana stand-in for Team Liquid at the tournament, marking his return from retirement. With so many exciting moments coming up, fans are more than excited for the game day.

In this article, we’ll list down the full schedule of the event as well as where you can watch it. We’ll also live update the results here, so stay tuned!

Ten Dota 2 teams from all over the world will compete live in the Esports & Elite Zone Boulevard, Riyadh. The prize money comprises $4 million for the competition as well as another $1 million that will be given to all organizations. Here is the prize pool distribution:

The format is very compressed with the Group stage and Playoffs taking place in under 4 days. The Group Stage will see a single Round Robin format where teams battle each other in a BO2 series. The top team of each group advances to the Upper Bracket, meanwhile the 2nd – 3rd drop to the Lower Bracket. The bottom team will be eliminated. In the Playoffs, we’ll see a BO3 single-elimination bracket. In contrast to most Dota 2 tournaments, the Grand Finals of Gamers8 Dota 2 will be a BO3.

Ten teams arrived at Riyadh, the capital of Saudi Arabia with the hopes of getting a slice of the prize. The event hosts a hefty prize, with the first place team set to win $1.5 million. What makes it more exciting is the lineup of teams that upholds the event like it’s a mini-TI!

Three teams; Team Liquid, RNG, and Deboosters qualified for the event through the Gamers Without Borders tournament. Meanwhile, the rest of the teams were invited. Here are the groups for Gamers8 Riyadh Masters Dota 2.
