The OGA Dota PIT Season 3 Europe/CIS tournament features a double-elimination format, with all matches played as best-of-three, except the Grand Finals, which will be played as best-of-five.

 

This tournament will, of course, be played entirely online. At the time of writing, the exact start times for matches each day is still unknown. However, since this is a European/CIS tournament, South African fans can expect decent times for the matches.

 

You can catch all the action on the OGA Dota PIT Twitch.tv channel, with things kick off on 20 September 2020.
