Announced a few weeks ago, The Dota 2 Shanghai Winter Major will begin on March 2nd and lasting till the 6th at the Mercedes Benz Arena, previously known as the Shanghai World Expo Cultural Center.  The venue seats about 18,000 people which is more than 13,500 seats than the Frankfurt Fall Major venue had supported.  The prize pool will be the same format, and size as the Frankfurt Fall Major.  Although the Chinese teams performed very poorly in Frankfurt, I having a strong feeling this may just be their Major.  The pressure for the Chinese teams to perform on their home ground is tremendous, so I am definitely excited for this coming March.

Now, on to the Open Qualifiers, FACEIT will be hosting it yet again for North America, Southeast Asia and Europe. The platform will show new potential for teams in tournaments, so that any team is only a few wins away from success. The two qualifiers will be hosted from the January 3rd and 4th, and January 5th and 6th. Below you can find the schedule for all four days:
