ASUS ROG DreamLeague Season 2

Finally we can present all the details about ASUS ROG DreamLeague Season 2 that begins next Monday 13th of October! Once again we are happy and proud to have ASUS ROG supporting the Dota 2 community in this way! Last season was a huge success and we have raised the bar for this Season 2 with a larger focus on live studio matches from Monster Energy DreamHack Studios. Last but not least we are thrilled to continue broadcasting our matches with the best in the business The GD Studio, so make sure to tune in to Twitch or Viagame from Monday and onwards.

ASUS ROG DreamLeague is back with Season 2 after a fantastic Season 1 where Swedish Alliance ended up defeating Cloud 9 in the final at DreamHack Summer 2014 to become the ASUS ROG DreamLeague Season 1 Champions.



Coming into Season 2 the focus has been to improve the league so it will be even more interesting and compelling for the players/teams, viewers/fans and the whole DOTA 2 community. The largest change will be that we are opening up and Asian Division to make ASUS ROG DreamLeague even more competitive. At the same time we are introducing a whole new part of the league where the best teams from each division will play against each other live in the Monster Energy DreamHack Studios. In this way we can guaranteed perfect competitive condition and at the same time produce a DOTA 2 broadcast of a much higher level as all viewers and fans can see how each and every player react and get a lot of great moments that only occurs in a live environment
