Dota 2 league - what is it and why
This league is to help new players get into DotA and get some consistent play on GB for DotA, which we feel is at an all time low right now. We feel like this is a very bad thing and we want to do something to fix that. So with that we give you the THE GIANT BOMB HOUSE LEAGUE. What we are planing to do a Round Robin Best of 3 Captains Draft league style. Best of all it will be streamed here. Where people sign up solo or as a group of two and are assigned teams based on skill, location, and preferred position to play. Now some of you will be asking what is a Round Robin and Captains Draft.
A Round Robin is style of organized play where each team plays every other team at least once and if you win you get a point and the other team does not. At the end of the event the team with the most points in the winner.
Now Captains Draft is a mode that not all of you may have encountered. It is a mode where in a Captain bans some heroes and then picks the heroes his/her team will play.
Also some of you may be asking why we are doing assigned teams.We are doing this to make sure that we have evenly balanced 5 man teams to make for close and fun games.
Registration is open in till the 19th of January at 11:59 PM EST
