ESL One Los Angeles 2020 moved to online format ⚡⚡⚡ Esports news, analytics, reviews on WePlay! The latest news on WePlay!

ESL One Los Angeles 2020 has been moved to an online format due to coronavirus concerns. The event was going to be the first in Dota 2 Major in history to take place in Los Angeles, bringing much delight to fans across the world. But, it is another event that has fallen victim to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

ESL released a statement regarding the decision to change from a LAN format to online, and how the event will work:


While we were all very excited to bring the first-ever Dota 2 Major to Los Angeles, this did not work out now or will in the near future. Instead, we decided that we will still continue to bring you, the fans, the best possible Dota 2 action in this difficult time and keep the competition going for the players - but it won’t be in event locations this year. The show must and will go on-line! ESL One Los Angeles 2020 will be played and broadcasted online with 34 teams in five regional online leagues from March 28 to April 19 and see qualified teams from the major as well as the best teams from the minor and the ESL World Ranking competing for a total $375,000 USD prize money in a round-robin Bo3 format with a Best-of-Five grand final.
