Though the ONE Esports Singapore Major will be held on LAN in a hotel in Singapore, spectators are unfortunately not allowed. Also, only the top eight teams are going to get their share of prize money as well as the DPC points and the remaining 10 teams will go home empty-handed. Regardless, some exhilarating Dota 2 action awaits us on March 27, as we are going to witness the battle between the best and the “in-form” Dota 2 teams.
