Dota was going to go Hollywood with ESL One Los Angeles originally scheduled for March 20-22. However, the COVID-19 pandemic ultimately canceled the live event. ESL was not ready to completely abandon the event, as they have now pivoted the entire structure to several online, regional-based tournaments, which will begin on March 28.

Instead of a Major DPC event, ESL One LA will now consist of five regional leagues – Europe/CIS, North America, South America, China and Southeast Asia – with individual prize pools for each.

Which Teams Will be Playing At ESL One LA?

Each of the five regions involved in the new-look event will feature a varying number of teams competing for their respective prize pools. The region with the most teams is EU/CIS, which will host 16 teams. China will have six teams while NA, SA and SEA will all have four.
