Campus Party Europe in London 2013 - Dota 2!
Campus Party is an annual week long, 24-hours-a-day technology festival where thousands of “Campuseros” (hackers, developers, gamers and technophiles), equipped with laptops, camp on-site and immerse themselves in a truly unique environment.
This years Campus Party is being hosted at the O2 Arena in London and will feature the biggest prize pool in UK Dota to date.
Recognising the huge popularity in Dota 2, Campus Party is pleased to announce that it will be hosting a tournament based on the free to play game by VALVe. 16 teams will participate in a single elimination bracket, randomly seeded.
Following the round of 16, teams will be re-seeded based on their performance in their first round.

Knowing that there were members of our community who were rather uncertain whether this event was too good to be true, UKDota.net did some fact hunting, allowing us to give you the full story here.
- Firstly, you need to register your attendance here.
- Entry into the event costs £30, tickets are availiable here
Note: There are no camping spaces availiable, attendes will be expected to organise their own accomodation in London for the duration.
- The tournament starts at 10:00 AM GMT on the 3rd of September.
- The Grand final 'should' start on the evening of the 5th and finish off on the morning of the 6th.
- The sooner Campus Party have full attendance, the sooner they can release a proper schedule.
Other points worth noting;
- Teams who register and do not turn up for the first round will be disqualified, at which point they will go to their reserve pool of teams (people who registered later than the first 16 teams).
- In the event that there are open slots for the first round which online registration fills. They will register teams on site. There is however no guarantee of a spot, so to avoid disappointment, we strongly recommend teams to apply as soon as possible via online registration.
- There will be no livestreaming of the event or Dota TV broadcasting.
- Teams would be expected to be on site between 10AM and 10PM. The time of their matches however will be published so they can use the time in between their matches rather than remain on standby for the full 12 hours.
- The matches are Best of 1s except for the Semi-Finals which are BO3 and Grand Finals BO5.
We hope this clears up all your queries and we wish those of you who attend the best of luck!
