5. ECL announces online tournament for the best teams of China.
ECL, known tournament organizers in China, announced its online championship. It will be held during 2 months and the prize pool will amount to $ 16,000. The best 12 Chinese teams have been already invited for participation. We would like to remind you that Invictus Gaming won the previous tournament (RedBull ECL 2013), and DK and TongFu completed the top-3.

4 . Gfinity announced a big LAN- tournament in London.
Gfinity eSports announced a big tournament, which will be held in the British capital. Dota 2 is among the listed disciplines. The event will took place in the Olympic arena "Copper box", ready to accommodate up to 7,000 spectators. The total prize pool will amount to $ 175,000. Though, it’s necessary to consider that championships on 5 disciplines at once will be held in the British capital. Nevertheless, this championship will be another important step towards the promotion of e-sports. We follow this tournament and will provide more details as new information becomes available.

3. Fear injured his elbow and will be out for a couple of weeks ...
Clinton 'Fear' Loomis, starring in 'Free To Play' documentary, is forced to miss at least two weeks because of an elbow injury. In Evil Geniuses he will be replaced by Mason, a former player of Take Five. Let’s wish good luck and health to the American veteran and we hope that he will return to competitive Dota very soon.

2. ... While “Free To Play” was watched by more than 5 million people!
Documentary from Valve gathered the audience of more than 5 million for the last week. “Free To Play”, release of which was held on Twitch, YouTube, iTunes, Steam and other popular online platforms, has received accolades from the press and the audience, as well as high points on iMDB from users (9,3 points of 10). We can surely say that this film pleased the audience and had a great success! Who knows, maybe Valve will focus on cinematograph after such a successful film?

1. Format of WPC-ACE is already known.
Last week the format of WPC-ACE, the biggest Chinese tournament, became known. Two winners of western qualification and six winners of eastern qualification will compete for a prize pool of about $ 245,000 in Shanghai.
