Postponed for November 2020, the $500,000 ONE Esports Jakarta Invitational carried on with the special Southeast Asia qualifiers and found its first teams bound to fight for a share of the generous prize pool.
Two legs of sub-regional SEA qualifiers were held for teams from, Philippines, Vietnam, Thailand, Singapore, Malaysia and Indonesia. Reality Rift claimed a spot to the event through Kuala Lumpur finals last week while Sunday, March 15 BOOM Esports took the spoils in the Jakarta finals. The Indonesian squad has recently placed top 4 at the StarLadder ImbaTV Dota Minor, improving its DPC placement at the beginning of the month in Kiev, Ukraine. Returned home, BOOM Esports had little to no time for a break and went undefeated through the entire qualifier campaign for ONE Esports Jakarta Invitational.
ONE Esports Jakarta Invitational was initially planned to take place mid-April, however, due to the recent development of the COVID -19 outbreak, the organizers decided to postpone it for November 23-29. The new dates coincide with the first week free of next season’s Dota Pro Circuit Regional Leagues matches. The first season of Regional Leagues will conclude on the 15th of November, while the first Major held on the system is scheduled to begin on December 11.
Organized alongside PGL, the One Esports Dota 2 Jakarta Invitational will be the third large scale event brought to Southeast Asia by the Singapore based organization.
