AOC officially kicks off their partnership with Disneyland Paris Major (MDL), the fourth Dota 2 Major of the Dota Pro Circuit 2018-2019 season. Taking place at Disneyland Paris from May 4th to May 12th, 16 professional Dota 2 teams from all over the world are competing for a prize pool of $1,000,000 USD and a direct qualification spot for The International 2019 Dota 2 Championships. Thanks to AOC’s sponsorship, all teams are being supported by AOC’s G2590PX gaming monitors, featuring top-notch features such as 144 Hz, 1 ms response time and Free Sync.
Hosted by Mars Media and Disneyland Paris, 16 renowned top-teams, including Dota 2 legends such as Team Liquid, OG, or Evil Geniuses, face off at Disney’s Newport Bay Club and Disney Event Arena in front of a 6,000-strong on-site crowd. As the teams were spread over four groups at the tournament, four teams each engage in best-of-three series to determine the two top and the two bottom teams, who then either advance to the upper or lower bracket in the playoffs. In the lower bracket, the eight lower teams must fight for their lives in a challenging best-of-one, while the teams in the upper bracket take on the other group winners in a best-of-three. After that, all matches, regardless of upper or lower bracket, are best-of-threes, except for the grand finals, which are played as a best-of-five series.
Crisp visuals for demanding matches
As Dota’s artistic comic look and its complex team fights require a display with great response time and refresh rate, picked for the purpose was the AOC G2590PX gaming monitor. It boasts a frameless TN panel with 24,5”, 16:9 Full HD (1920×1080 pixels), FreeSync support, 1 ms response time and high refresh rates of up to 144 Hz. The G2590PX demonstrates how a display can combine performance, style and affordability into one package while continuing to ensure a smooth, tear and stutter-free gameplay experience.
