Epic Esports Events is cashing in on the cancelation of Valve’s 2022 Dota Pro Circuit Winter Tour Major. Aside from that, it will host the Winline Dota 2 Champions League Season Seven.
Starting from January 24 to February 17, fourteen teams from across Eastern and Western Europe will be locking horns for a share of the $50,000 prize pool. However, most of the roster has been taken up by CIS representation.
