FaceIt announced Thursday the FPL Circuit for Dota 2, a competitive environment in which players can build a path to become professionals.
The circuit is designed for potential Dota 2 talents to practice and be scouted by professional Dota 2 teams. FaceIt will support a monthly Challenger Series for the top division of the circuit, offering a $20,000 prize pool to North America and Europe. Players subscribed to FaceIt can find teammates through joining a HUB of their appropriate skill level and compete as teams in order to improve. Each division in the circuit will include a solo only queue and a captain pick system, giving players options to what kind of environment in which they wish to compete.
“FPL offers a great environment for top players to practice without the problem of toxicity,” OpTic Gaming’s Peter “ppd” Dager said in a news release. “It allows us to hone our skills and have fun playing with other serious competitors.”
The ability to create and manage in-house leagues for third party organizations will be added to the circuit soon, a feature that will be accessible by all organizers and players in the FaceIt platform.
