The DPC in Southeast Asia is set to start in early January and will include three separate tours. Every one of those three tours will have a $280,000 (~£232,000) prize pool and will see 16 best regional teams compete.
Pontus Lövgren, Co-founder of Epulze: “We are excited to be hosting the SEA DPC next year alongside our great list of partners, including Oddin.gg. It is a huge achievement for the team and a great opportunity to showcase our platform and talent within the Southeast Asia region. Working with Oddin.gg and their growing list of customers gives us unprecedented access to brands, information, and resources that would otherwise not be possible.”
