OGA Dota Pit Minor 2019 is the 4th Minor of the Dota Pro Circuit. For its eight participants, it’s also one of the last two chances of playing in a DPC Major.

OGA Dota Pit Minor 2019 is scheduled to take place in Split, Croatia between April 22nd – 28th. The tournament brings together eight teams from all of the six major regions and offers them what every Minor event does: $300.000 in prizes and 500 qualification points for The International 2019. Furthermore, the winner gets a ticket to the Major that starts almost immediately after.

Participants and Event Format

OGA Dota Pit Minor 2019 features the best teams that failed to qualify for the MDL Paris Major. These teams are the following:

  • Ninjas in Pyjamas
  • Alliance
  • Forward Gaming
  • Majestic Esports
  • Gambit Esports
  • BOOM ID
  • Royal Never Give Up
  • EHOME

The competitive format that will be used for OGA Dota Pit Minor 2019 is very basic. The Group Stage consists of two groups of four. Each group is played in a Round-Robin format (Bo3 matches). The Playoffs Stage is played in a Double-Elimination format. Every team will have a chance to compete in the Playoffs and will even start in the Upper Bracket. The Group Stage results only decide the pairings for the first round of matches.

OGA Pit Minor 2019 Groups

OGA Dota Pit Minor 2019 consists of the following two groups:

Group A

  • Ninjas in Pyjamas
  • Royal Never Give Up
  • Gambit Esports
  • BOOM ID

In Group A, the favorites are NiP and Gambit Esports. These are the teams that have played the best throughout the season and in principle, they should place 1st and 2nd in this group.

Group B

  • Alliance
  • EHOME
  • Forward Gaming
  • Majestic Esports

In Group B, EHOME and Forward Gaming are the most likely winners.

OGA Dota Pit Minor Predictions

Overall, OGA Dota Pit Minor 2019 will be a competition between EHOME, NiP and Gambit. These three teams are considerably better than the rest and one of them will probably win the tournament. Which one, we’ve yet to find out. In principle, NiP is the highest ranked of these three in the DPC system, sitting at number 7 with 1570 points. However, their performances in recent months haven’t been the best. So the race for the title is completely open.
