About OGA Dota 2 Pit

OGA Dota 2 Pit is now on its second season of hosting online tournaments in various regions. The organizer first hosted Dota Pit League in 2014 and occasionally organized other minor Dota 2 matches from 2017 onwards. Of course, the tournament’s popularity means that it will make its way to Bet Dota 2’s Live Streams page should you wish to witness end-to-end action from top-rank teams.

The organizer’s first event in 2020, OGA Dota PIT Minor 2020, got cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic. It was supposed to return to Split, Croatia in April and produce qualified teams for the EPICENTER Major 2020. It’s uncertain whether or not OGA Dota PIT Minor 2020 will return later this year. In the meantime, Dota 2 fans can stream and watch AMD Sapphire OGA Dota Pit regional events.
