One of the most awaited events in the Dota 2 Pro Circuit, Epicenter has just announced details for its third iteration. The first two Epicentre LANs were very successful and received universal acclaim from the Dota 2 community. They were also the top 3 most viewed Dota2 events of 2017. So understandably fans are quite excited for this event.

Epicenter XL will be the first ever Russian Dota 2 Major and will be held at the  VTB Ice Palace sports arena on May 4–6. As always, a $1,000,000 prizepool, as well as 1500 DPC points, will be up for the taking in the Major.

A total of 12 teams are to take part in the LAN, of which two have already been invited to the event, Team Liquid and Virtus Pro. While no info on the number of invites/qualifiers has been released we know that at least 6 qualifier teams from NA, SA, SEA, EU, China and CIS will be taking part in this event.
