With a base prize of $125,000 USD that went up to 139,860 after incorporating ticket sales, the qualifying teams battled their way through the open qualifiers to regionals—and now the epic LAN finals.This year’s three-day event was hosted in Split, Croatia, at the Spaladium Arena, featuring six teams from around the world and two teams with direct invites.
The format for Dota Pit League Season 5 was double elimination group. The teams who made it to the finals were Evil Geniuses from North America, and OG from Europe. Neither teams were strangers, as they have battled each other before at the Boston Major and The Summit 6.
The battle ran longer than usual due to technical issues, but in the end of the five-game series, team Evil Geniuses took the win by 3-2.
