Corsair Dreamleague Season 10 will be the first Dota 2 Minor for DPC season 2018-19. Featuring a prize pool of $300,000 this tournament will be held from October 9 till the 4th of November 2018.
It is the first Minor of the Dota Pro Circuit and such will carry a cash prize as well as the opportunity to win DPC Points. However, in what is probably more important to some teams, the winner of the Dreamleague Season 10 will receive a direct invitation to the Kuala Lumpur Major. With the CIS region already throwing up a surprise team, we will witness to some intense competition at the Dreamleague Minor.
We’re excited as ever to be returning with our title partner CORSAIR for DreamLeague Season 10! CORSAIR will be working with us together with DreamHack as official peripheral and chair provider. CORSAIR DreamLeague Season 10 will feature global qualification, with qualifiers happening in China, SEA, CIS, NA, SA, and EU regions. The live finals will take place as a 7 day event at the Monster Energy DreamHack studios.
Dreamleague Season 10 will have open qualifiers in all Six Regions. Only the winners of the open qualifiers will make it to the Closed qualifiers. The top four teams from each region will compete for a chance to reach the Minor. Europe and North America both have two spots while the remaining regions only have one spot to offer.
Virtus Pro announce new Dota 2 Coach – Arszeeq
— Virtus.pro (@virtuspro) September 19, 2018
Virtus Pro are the strongest team in the Dota 2 scene. Despite having a superstar performance during DPC season 17-18, Virtus Pro was unable to win TI8. As they head into the next season, VP has already established themselves as the best CIS team. They became the first CIS team to qualify for the Major.
The first practice sessions with the new member have already paid off, and we are noticing positive dynamics. I’m sure that Arseniy will be able to fulfil his potential in Virtus.pro while his extensive game knowledge will allow us to consistently perform at a high level in the new season
Roman Dvoryankin, Virtus.pro general manager
They will now use former Effect Coach / Captain, ArsZeeq as their coach. Arszeeq has played for teams such as Vega Squadron, Effect, Team Empire and more. He assumed the role of a coach in December 2017 and has had decent results with Team Effect ever since.
I’m excited to have a chance to work with one of the world’s strongest teams. We are already polishing our new strategies and picks with the guys.
Arseniy “ArsZeeqq” Usov
Virtus Pro has a few months to practice with their new coach. They will next play at the Kuala Lumpur Major which has a $1 million prize pool.
