FACEIT the leading competitive platform for online multiplayer games, is proud to announce the launch of the FPL Circuit for Dota2. The new circuit aims to provide players with a good competitive environment where they can play, improve and find their path to become a pro.
The FPL circuit gives new players a serious environment to practice in, the opportunity to join a real in-house league and provides players of every skill level the chance to thrive in a competitive environment and rise through the ranks. This process, put into practise for FPL CS:GO, has already seen new talent launch their careers and be scouted by major teams such as Robin “ropz” Kool, who at just 17 years-old was picked up earlier this year by Mousesports. By climbing through the divisions, all players will have their occasion to be seen and scouted by teams and organisations.
The FPL Circuit is an entirely new and independent tournament organiser with its own dedicated team managing every aspect of the league and ensuring that its mission is fulfilled.
The top division of the Circuit will see the highest ranking Dota2 pro gamers through to emerging talent in North America and Europe competing for a monthly prize pool of $20,000.
Once subscribed to the FPL Circuit players will be able to join a HUB appropriate to their skill level, and find like-minded people to compete with and have the possibility to improve and practice. Each division will replicate the format of the main FPL hub including solo only queue and captain pick system. The presence of a standard queue in the different divisions will ensure the fairness of the system.
“I think this is a great opportunity for the Dota2 competitive scene to grow together, allowing both new talent and also veterans to learn from one another and improve together in a good environment, and that is why I’m excited to be a part of the new in-house league by FPL,” said Tal ‘FLy’ Aizik from OG.
“FPL offers a great environment for top players to practise without the problem of toxicity. It allows us to hone our skills and have fun playing with other serious competitors,” added Peter ‘ppd’ Dager from OpTic Gaming.
The first season of the FPL in September 2017 was won by Artour “Arteezy” Babaev for Europe and Ivan Borislavov “MinD_ContRoL” Ivanov for North America. If you think you’ve got what it takes to climb to the top you can subscribe to the FPL Circuit via the Organizer page and for further information please visit the FACEIT blog.
Alongside opportunities for players HUBs will soon be available for third party organizers to create and manage their own in-house leagues. This feature will be accessible for all organizers and players on the FACEIT platform.
