Submitted by dpm on Sun, 21/06/2009 - 09:00
For the third year, Garena presents the Asia DotA Championship 2009. It is back with a total of USD 4,350 prize money and an expansion to Australia and New Zealand. Over 400 teams are competing to win one of the ten slots available in the regular season. It is so popular that the Singapore qualifier doubled its slots to 64 and the Philippines increased its sign-up ratio because 128 slots were not enough.
Registration has closed and all qualifiers have started this week and will end in July. The winners of the nine qualifiers and the South Asia Kings Tournament will face each other in the regular season and battle for the four positions in the Play-off. The remaining four will fight to be crowned the Champion of ADC 2009.
Some qualifier games will be available live on Garena TV. All replays will be made available by Garena.
