What is it?
A fun Dota 2 tournament where you must bring your own team of five. It is not required for any members to be apart of the OnRPG community. The tournament will be played in the Captains Draft mode with the aim of having fun and trying new drafts, however, this doesn't mean that you shouldn't aim to win. Play hard and win!
Based on the amount of registered teams, the format will either be round robin (if less than 6 teams) or elimination brackets if more 6 or more teams sign up.

Why should I sign up?
The main objective of this tournament is to have fun in a competitive environment. We all love to play games, why not make it a little competition. In addition to having some fun, it will serve as a test to determine the amount of interest shown in such competitive events in the OnRPG community. If there seems to be enough interest, events such as these may repeat in the future, maybe even with other games.
Besides, around this time most of us have just finished with exams. We all deserve a break.
In addition, there will also be prizes! Due to the tournament being solely funded by myself, I am not able to offer anything large, it is only there to offer some reward and incentive for giving it your all. Not promising anything but depending on the number of teams, prizes may increase. If you'd like to donate towards the prize pool, can be anything even in game items, let me know!
The first place team will receive:
- Custom title on our forums
- Custom colored name on our forums
- Five treasure keys (used to open chests for goodies!)
- Possible bonus prizes depending on interest, don't hold me on this!
- Always respect your opponents. Friendly banter is allowed as this tournament aims to have fun but do not go too far.
- No false or premptitive GGs. If your captain says GG in chat, you have forfeit the match.
- You are allowed to concede at any point. The captain must say GG in chat and immedietely leave the game.
- All wins/losses are to be reported to Abubakr so brackets may be updated. (Steam Profile linked below)
- Games will be played with the Captains Draft mode. Let's see some interesting drafts!
- First pick/ban will be randomly chosen unless agreed upon between teams.
- Servers are to be discussed between opponents and that which is best for both teams will be selected.
- Standins are allowed. It is better to get variable teams than to have no game at all. Only the captain may not be replaced. (Due to the captain being contacted to arrange matches)
- Being exessively late gives the team waiting the option to auto win. (Can decide after 10 minutes of waiting)
- Team captains must be present in the OnRPG Dota steam group chat room. This will be used to setup games.
