It is almost time for the first Major of the new Dota 2 Pro Circuit to get underway. After some gruelling qualifiers, the 18 teams were decided and tomorrow, the Kuala Lumpur Major group stage kicks off. Dota 2 fans shouldn’t miss out on this awesome tournament presented by PGL with a $1 million prize pool at stake. Now, the Kuala Lumpur Major groups have been decided and although there is no clear group of death, in my opinion, it is sure to still deliver some exciting matchups.
Some of the top teams in the world, mixed in with some dark horses, will start their fight for the lion’s share of the prize pool and a tonne of DPC points. Let’s face it, every Major will be extremely as teams take their first step towards qualifying for The International 2019.
