FirstBlood Announces Dota 2 Tournament Week

Blockchain esports platform, FirstBlood, has really been stirring things up lately in the Dota 2 scene. Earlier this year, they partnered with the China University Esports League to bring their technology and platform to thousands of collegiate players and teams. Last Tuesday, 7 November, they launched Blood in the Streets Americas, their second BITS tournament. Eight teams are still battling it out for their share of the $10 thousand prize pool.

In an exclusive leak to n3rdabl3, sources at FirstBlood have informed us that they have another tournament coming up very soon.

Dota 2 Tournament Week will feature an open-bracket format that anyone can join. It will be 5v5 format over a span of eight days, where amateur teams can compete for cash prizes ranging from $5 to $1,500. We’ve been told that FirstBlood has a brand new feature with new technology that they’re going to weave into their current platform, making it stronger than ever. Dota 2 Tournament Week will be the first big step for this new tech. Look for an official announcement at some point during the BITS tournament this weekend.

FirstBlood has been growing fast over the last year, and there’s plenty more on the horizon, according to sources. Keep your eyes and ears open!

I've been writing for esports blogs here and there since the Wings of Liberty days of Starcraft II. It started mostly as a way of documenting my own matches, which I quickly learned doesn't really work unless you're streaming. Finally, after much research and deliberation, I decided to adopt a more guided and informed style of writing in the summer of 2016. Overwatch and Street Fighter were my main focuses, but esports as an industry became absolutely fascinating to me. Seeing the scene blow up has been awesome, but there's so much more to be done. I simply want to do my part in providing quality content for esports consumers around the world.
