AMD Partners with Convictus Esports Group to Bring Dota 2 Pro Series to Australia
AMD has teamed up with Convictus Esports Group to bring the Dota 2 Pro Series to Australia. The major event will take place over two days in Melbourne.
Australian Dota 2 Tournament with a $50,000 AUD Prize Pool
This is the largest Dota 2 tournament ever held in Australia, with a prize pool of $50,000 AUD ($36,000 USD). Teams from around the world, including world champions OG, will be competing. The international teams also include Mineski, Newbee MGB, Deathbringer, Alpha Red, and PG.Barracx. Natural 9 and AGN Black, representing the Oceanic region, have qualified for the event.
Kyle Holton, the Business Owner and General Manager for AGN Black, expressed excitement about the opportunity. He stated, “Convictus is the first major event that AGN will be attending as an esports organization. The fact that we’re competing alongside Natural 9 and international teams such as OG and Mineski is still a shock to us. To be able to attend such an event is quite a new and amazing experience for us, and we definitely couldn’t have done it without the guidance of the Australian gaming and esports community. Thank you all!”
This competition is a clear indication of the significance it holds for the Australian Dota 2 community.
Stellar Host Line-Up and On-Site Experiences
In addition to the teams, the event will feature a stellar cast of hosts, including Sir Action Slacks, Michelle Mannering, GoDz, R1sk, MLPDotA, and Basskip.

Attendees will also have the opportunity to test out AMD’s top products with friends.
