EPT Season 2 is here! 2024 Event Overview

Heading into the 2024 calendar year, we wish to share the slot distribution, qualifier, and tournament dates for all of our DOTA 2 tournaments next year.

Below, you will find a breakdown of all DOTA 2 events and a changelog that gives an overview of Season 2 of the EPT compared to the 2023 EPT calendar.

Season 2 of the EPT includes both DreamLeague Season 21 and ESL One Kuala Lumpur, and results of both events are highly relevant in distributing EPT Points, but key changes to the overall EPT system will only be felt from DreamLeague Season 22 onwards.

EPT Season 2 Changelog

  • Introduced EPT Points and leaderboard
  • Expanded season 2 to feature a total of 3 DreamLeagues and 2 ESL One events
    • Added DreamLeague Season 21 results to EPT Points leaderboard
  • Changed direct invites to be dependent on EPT Points from DreamLeague Season 22 onwards
    • ESL One Kuala Lumpur was based primarily on TI placements
  • Added Open & Closed Qualifiers to all events going forward
  • Added MENA as qualifier region
  • Both ESL One Kuala Lumpur and ESL One Europe +1 Armor
    • To simplify the impact of the bonus armor increase: Both events feature a $1,000,000 prize pool each now
  • 20% increased chance of Electricity during EPT broadcasts
