Cyber.Bet Cup Spring Series SEA Tournament Details and Preview

Published: May 4, 2020 - Last Updated: May 7, 2020

There is no doubt that the Cyber.Bet Cup which took place from the 6th-12th April 2020, has been one of the top quality CS:GO tournaments of the lockdown. Buoyed by the success of the esports tournament, Cyber.Bet are now back with a brand new event, this time for Dota 2 players.

The tournament is the Cyber.Bet Spring Series and it will be contested in two geographic areas, south-east Asia (SEA) and Europe (EU). In this article, we are going to focus on the SEA tournament in particular.

Cyber.Bet Cup Spring Series SEA Details

The SEA tournament will get going on Monday 11th May with a prize pool of $5,000 up for grabs, $2,500 of which will go to the winners.

A total of eight teams will be competing in the event, which will start with the eight teams split into two groups of four for the opening Round Robin stage of the tournament. During this phase, each match is a best of three contest.

Once all the group games have been played, the final table will be calculated and the top two teams from each of the two groups will move forward into the upper bracket of the double-elimination playoffs. The bottom two teams in each group are placed in the loser bracket of the playoffs.

Both brackets will be completed, with one team qualifying for the Grand Final and another making it through an arduous lower bracket tournament to earn the second Grand Final berth. The Final itself will be the only contest of the tournament to be played out over a best of five format.

Teams Competing in the SEA Event

There’s no doubt that esports betting enthusiasts will be keen to pore over the Dota 2 odds for this tournament, but first let’s take a look at the eight teams in the event and which of the two groups that they have been drawn into.

  • Group A – Cignal Ultra, CR, Geek Fam, T1
  • Group B – 496 Gaming, Execration, LGD.int, Neon Esports

Competitors include Geek Fam, the winners of the 2018 Malaysian Esports League, and also the Asia Pacific Predator League in the same year. T1 is the Dota 2 team representing the T1 brand, who most famously operate the T1 (formerly SK Telecom T1) team in the League of Legends LCK and who have been triple world champions in that event.

Perhaps the biggest name in the event is the Philippines-based Execration, who have competed in the pinnacle of Dota 2 gaming, The International, back in 2017, when they earned a 13th-16th placed finish, picking up their biggest ever prize of $123,440. Their most notable recent performance was winning the $40,000 first prize at the MPGL Asian Championship in July 2018.

Betting on the Cyber.Bet Cup Spring Series SEA

As you would expect from the main sponsor of the event, Cyber.bet will be offering an extensive range of bets on the tournament when it gets underway on Monday 11th May, starting with an expansive range of bets available for each of the group stage games.
