NOT ENOUGH DOTA 2 ACTION? OMEGA LEAGUE SEASON 2 TO START IN OCTOBER
The fans asked for it and the fans got it: The highly successful Omega League format will see a second run.
Set for kick-off on October 28, the new Dota 2 tourney is the outcome of the combined efforts of Epic Esports, WePlay! Esports and some other groups, who understood the need for a top-notch competition to fill up the empty action space of the next few months: “We can’t leave the teams with no competition and the fans without their favorite show, so the tournament must go on!” said Epic Esports representative Mark Averbukh just a few days ago.

Averbukh also remarked on the importance of the Omega League format and on how they planned all along on keeping it alive and enhancing it some more: “The first season of Omega League has proven the chosen format to be a success and we have improved it even further for the entire Dota community to enjoy.”
Omega Season 2 is a two-division program, covering both the European and CIS player regions. The divisions are known as Immortals and Divines. These two act like the Dota versions of the Champions League & Europa League in soccer: one is for top-ranking teams, the second for the less-fortunate squads.
