Although the Auto battler genre of games had a roaring start with hundreds of thousands of players playing the game, which spawned off numerous spinoffs like Riot’s Teamfight Tactics, or Valve’s Dota Underlords, there has been a considerable dearth of tournaments in this genre, especially in the SEA scene.

However, VNG Corporation has partnered with ESL to host two tournaments with a prize pool of $30,000 each in the SEA and Latin American regions. 

The SEA tournament kicks off on 11th June 2020 and will take place in various phases until 19th July, while the Latin American tournament will kick-off on the same day (11th June 2020) but will end on 9th August 2020.
