Winter Major in Shanghai!
Dota 2 winter Major has been just announced at The Frankfurt Major. It will be held in early March 2016 at Mercedes-Benz Arena in Shanghai (China).
The event called The Shanghai Major and organized by Valve will be held on 2–6 March 2016 and be supported by Perfect World. This company is known for organizing Dota 2 Asia Championship, which received negative feedback and complaints on the quality of streams. Additionally it is rumored that the prize money hasn't been yet paid to the tournament winner Evil Geniuses. Most likely, this time the organizers will do their best, as the tournament will be supervised by Valve. The first Major has been held very well, with almost no complaints to the organizers, which sets the very high quality standards and expectations to keep up with.
More details will be provided later. The system of the tournament will most likely be the same. 16 participants from all over the world, including 8 invited teams and 8 qualified teams, will gather in Shanghai in pursuance of fun, money and the champion's title. The prize pool hasn't been announced yet, but it is expected to be the fixed sum similar to that of The Frankfurt Major.
