Alex Richardson will be the host at the Boston Major. Alex Richardson or ´Machine´ as he is more popularly known will be hosting his first Dota2 event on a big scale. This is definitely good news that Valve are constantly seeking to improve the Dota2 scene with hiring of new talent from other industries as well.

Alex in his usual cocky way poked fun at the venue´s name. It is definitely going to be a fun event. The Boston Major is the first Major of the 2016-2017 season. The main event takes place at the Wang Theater in Boston, Massachusetts, USA. Notably, The Boston Major is the first publisher sponsored event to not feature a double-elimination bracket. Instead, the 16 participating teams will be seeded into a single elimination bracket based on their performance in the group stage.
