Pinnacle has continued its growth within the esports sector with the announcement of its second proprietary tournament, this time moving into Dota 2.
The Pinnacle Cup – Dota event boasts an impressive $100,000 total prize pool and will feature some of the very best Dota 2 teams from across Europe.
The competition kicks off on May 5, comprising an initial 10-team round-robin stage, followed by a best-of-three double-elimination bracket. Two teams will be invited to the playoffs to join those qualifying via the round-robin stage. Then there will be the semi-finals and a best-of-five grand final, which is scheduled to take place on May 30.
Pinnacle CEO Paris Smith said “After a fantastic start to the Pinnacle Cup, we are delighted to carry on this series with RELOG Media, expanding further into the esports ecosystem. The heart of what we do at Pinnacle is engaging with the esports community, and with the introduction of the Pinnacle Cup – Dota, we plan to further reinforce that connection with the wider esports audience.

We are ambitious and excited for what this tournament will bring and look forward to continuously setting the standard for these types of event.“
