Thirty two Twitch streamers across both Europe and North America are set to battle it out in the TwitchRivals Dota 2 Auto Chess Showdown 2.
Each region will have 16 streamers matched up in respective lobbies to avoid any potential lag. Each lobby will be split into two matches with eight players competing at the same time.
Of those 16 players, the top and bottom four players from each match will be grouped together and placed into new lobbies for round two. The top placing streamer in each region through round one will receive $500 and the top player at the end of the winner’s round will earn $600.
The roster for Europe consists of the last event’s winner, Chris “FenoHS” Tsako, and others like Sebastian “Forsen” Fors. Meanwhile, North America will see streamers like Sam “Strippin” Thorne and Marcus “Dyrus” Hill enter the arena.
The total prize pool for the event sits at $25,000, up from the first event’s $12,500.
The ongoing TwitchRivals series has hosted many tournaments for Dota 2 and the recent fixation with its most popular mod continues March 13 at 9am PT. The competition will be streamed on both the TwitchRivals channel and each individual competitor’s own channels.
