Here's everything you need to know about the BTS Pro Series playoffs, including teams, schedule, matchups, group stage eliminations, and how to watch for all the Dota 2 esports fans out there.
About BTS Pro Series
The BTS Pro Series is hosted by Beyond the Summit in collaboration with Loot.bet and Monster Energy. There are two tournaments, both of which are played entirely online due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
This online league features a Southeast Asia (SEA) tournament, as well as a South/North America tournament. They will be played on the same dates, but due to different time zones, matches won't overlap.
The total prize pool for BTS Pro Series is $100,000. This is split between the two tournaments, so SEA gets $50,000 and NA/SA gets $50,000. The prize pool distribution for the BTS Pro Series (per region) is as follows:
- 1st place - $21,000
- 2nd place - $11,000
- 3rd place - $6,500
- 4th place - $4,500
- 5th to 6th place - $2,250
- 7th to 8th place - $1,150
