Slingshot Readers,

We NEED your support. More specifically, the author of this article needs your support. If you've been enjoying our content, you know that a lot of work goes into our stories and although it may be a work of passion, writers gotta eat. If just half our readers gave 1 DOLLAR a month, one measly dollar, we could fund all the work from StuChiu, DeKay, Emily, Andrew (and even Vince). If you contribute 5 DOLLARS a month, we invite you to join our Discord and hang with the team. We wouldn't bother you like this if we didn't need your help and you can feel good knowing that 100% of your donation goes to the writers. We'd really appreciate your support. After all, you're what makes all this happen. Learn more

FaceIt announces FPL Circuit for Dota 2

FaceIt launched the FPL Circuit for Dota 2

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.
