The Bucharest Minor is scheduled to be the second minor for the Dota 2 Pro Circuit season and the first for organizer PGL. The tournament has a $300,000 prize pool. Eight teams for various qualifiers will make the event. The winner is guaranteed a spot at the upcoming Chongquig Major.
Dota 2 commentators recently threatened to step away from the next Dota 2 Major after a controversy surrounding TNC Predator player Carlo "Kuku" Palad.
