With the help of the series, you can challenge yourself and prove your worth to others, and maybe even make your way into the professional esports scene.

This winter season will last for three months (December 5th, 2016 - February 5th, 2017) with the $3,600 championship finals as the highlight of event. Overall prize fund is 445,500 WePlay Points + $4,800 USD (take into account that a part of the amount will be given out as the rare Dota2 items in the game; here you can find all information about WePlay Points).
