ESL seems to continue to build a competitive sphere in Dota 2 with the recent announcement of ESL One Mumbai 2019.
This tournament will be a major tournament Dota 2 first to be held in India. For this occasion, ESL has teamed up with a local Indian sports organization, NODWIN Gaming to help with the process.
NODWIN is known to have previously done work with DreamHack and several other smaller tournament organizers.

Twelve teams will later become participants in this competition. Seven of them will receive an invitation or without qualifying.
Meanwhile, the four teams will compete according to their region, and the last place will be given to the winner of the local qualification, namely India qualifier.
For this qualification, there will be no team from reqion South America because it simply isn’t available.
The twelve teams will compete to bring home the trophy and prizes totaling US $ 300,000 (Rp. 4.2 billion).
Besides, like most ESL events Dota, they will also have a contest cosplay and there will also be an opportunity for fans to meet and take photos with the players.
However, it looks like this tournament will have a bit of trouble. because the implementation of the ESL One Mmubai is closely related to the Minor AMD Sapphire Dota PIT tournament.

It could be that the teams that compete later will only be labeled “those who do not pass the AMD Sapphire Dota PIT” or make hype-its lacking.
ESL One mumbai consists of two innings, the Group Stage for ESL One Mumbai will take place from 16 to 18 April 2019.
Meanwhile, round main event will take place April 19-21 2019 at the NSCI Dome and fans can purchase their tickets to watch it live at the arena.
Hopefully at ESL One Mumbai 2019 this time there will be a team or representatives from Indonesia who can qualify! Thank goodness again if they managed to bring the trophy and money!
In your opinion, which team do you think is suitable to get a slot from invitation?
