Bounty Hunt, BLAST’s first ever Dota 2 tournament

Esports tournament organizer BLAST has announced its first Dota 2 tournament, Bounty Hunt, in today’s esports news. Bounty Hunt features a prize pool of $150 thousand and a $5 thousand cash prize for the audience. This competition starts on June 9 and concludes on June 13. Despite being known purely for competitive CS:GO, BLAST aims to conquer new esports titles. As of now, OG Esports, Ninjas in Pyjamas, Team Secret, Team Liquid, Alliance, and Enigma will compete at this event.

Bounty Hunt Guideline

Over five days, professional Dota 2 teams will clash in best-of-three matches with a best-of-five championship final. The prize pool changes with every game and additional bounties can be claimed throughout the event, changing the stakes. The dynamic prize pool works through a “stake battle”. Each team starts with $15 thousand and each time they go against a team, they put up 40 percent of their cash when competing in a best-of-three match. Teams will seed each other and compete through a double-elimination bracket until two teams place at the top seeds. Three to six teams will play against the winners proceeding to compete against the first and second seeds. Both top seeds start with $20 thousand for a place in the final.

Additional bounties worth $45 thousand will be up for grabs during the tournament. Viewers can vote on challenges through BLAST’s social media accounts. One voter’s name will be used as an extra incentive and used as the respective bounty’s title. These challenges provide additional earnings. But if a team does not lose a single match, they walk away with $51 thousand. However, if the team manages to secure each bounty, that number rises to $96 thousand.

Audience Participation

Throughout the tournament, $5 thousand will be up for grabs for viewers. Any viewer can win through a Fan Prediction. Viewers who can predict the winners of each match, the numbers of bounties obtained, and several other unannounced predictions may have a shot at this cash prize.

Overall, BLAST’s Bounty Hunt has one foot in the door. This BLAST Dota 2 tournament not only announces the esports event organizer’s entry but tests if the waters are calm. If the competition proves to be successful, then the competitive Dota 2 scene has another esports event to bring accessibility towards tier two and three teams, fortifying a strong competitive future for Dota 2 esports.
