iBUYPOWER teaming up with Beyond The Summit for The Summit Finals


We’re very excited to announce that iBUYPOWER is now the official tournament PC sponsor for The Summit Finals! We love working with the guys at the Beyond The Summit studio and there’s no way we wouldn’t want to be a part of the conclusion to their tournament series. Team DK, Natus Vincere, Vici Gaming, Evil Geniuses, Fnatic, and Na’Vi.US will all be there playing in this four day event.

Beyond The Summit is well known throughout the Dota 2 community for bringing together the best international teams to compete in their amazing events. The Summit is their invitational tournament with a current prize pool of $80,000. Two teams were invited and another four made it through online qualifiers, making this a 6-team tournament where first place takes home $22,500.

For those who aren’t up to date on the Dota scene, this tournament provides meaningful competition given that all the invited teams will be competing in Valve’s The International 4 next month. For Evil Geniuses and Na’Vi.US specifically, all eyes will be looking at them to see how well they perform. EG just lost one of their long time members Clinton “Fear” Loomis due to a prolonging elbow injury and will be replaced by Mason “Mason” Venne for at least the next couple months. Na’Vi.US you guys may previously remember as North American Rejects – the U.S. hype train that grabbed the attention of the world during their winning performance against Team Liquid in the TI4 Americas qualifiers. Soon after, they were acquired by the infamous TI-winning Na’Vi organization to become their NA squad, so it’ll be interesting  to see how well they can perform under the pressure of their new big name.
