Monday is a hard day, but "Top-5 Weekly" is with you again! We continue to select the most interesting events of Dota scene, which happened last week. Fasten your seatbelts, let’s hit the road!

 

5 . Gfinity LAN is postponed to August
We wrote about the big new event, which was going to be held in London in May. But there is a new information concerning the postponement of championship to the beginning of August. Qualifications for the tournament will begin in late May. Also we would like to remind you that the mentioned event will be held at Olympic arena "Copper box", ready to host up to 7000 spectators. It is noteworthy that the tournament will take place right after The International, and it means that probably we will see some interesting line-ups formed as a result of traditional reshuffle. We continue to follow this event.


4. Valve offers opportunity for designers!
Dota 2 developers announced a new contest for designers. This time artists are invited to create a new design for T-shirts and posters. The best works will be sold in Secret Shop at The International! The deadline for participation is May 20. Therefore, everyone has the time for development and implementation of his/her ideas.

 

3. New servers in Dubai
Valve is extending the geography of Dota 2 players! This time the corporation announced the opening of a new data center in Dubai aimed at the players living in the Middle East. If earlier players usually had to choose between Europe and Southeast Asia, now they will have the possibility to play on special servers with acceptable ping.

 

2. Information on ESL One qualifications is already known
Organizers of ESL One disclosed the data on qualifications for the championship. Qualifying tournaments will be held at the same time for three regions: Europe, America and Asia. In Europe 16 teams will compete for 3 places. Let’s emphasize

 Team Empire and
 Cloud 9 among the other participants. In American region one ticket to Frankfurt is up for grabs, and
 Evil Geniuses is a favorite. We are still waiting for new information concerning Asian qualifications. Now the only thing is known: two teams will participate in the final tournament.

 

1. All tickets for The International were sold within an hour!
It seems that The International 2014 has been announced just recently, but all the tickets are already sold out! 10,000 tickets available for sale were snapped up like hotcakes! According to Doug Lombardi, all tickets were sold out in an hour! We can only guess how big should be the arena to accommodate all the fans. But the fact that huge KeyArena in Seattle will be filled to capacity makes us happy. It remains only to wait until mid-July.
