TNC, J.Storm, among others, are coming to ESL One Mumbai

Complexity Gaming and Gambit have also received invites to the tournament.

ESL One Mumbai is the first premier Dota 2 event in India where some of the best International teams from across the world will come to participate. Fans were left disappointed, when most recently, NaVi revealed that they won't be coming to India due to an already busy schedule.


Since then, a bunch of teams have qualified for the event. J.Storm is one of teams among them, who qualified from North America. This means that the fans will finally get to see Old Man Fear in action. Another fan favorite team which will be attending the tournament is TNC, who have qualified from Southeast Asia. Other than that, Keen Gaming has qualified from the China region and The Pango as well has qualified from the Europe region.

Two more teams have been invited as well. Gambit Esports, the team that has been taking the CIS region by storm will be coming to Mumbai. The other team to receive a direct invite is Complexity Gaming.  

For now, four more slots remain open for ESL One Mumbai. One of them is for an Indian team from the Indian Qualifiers, and the rest of the three teams will receive a direct invite. It remains to be seen which teams will get an invite.

ESL One Mumbai will take place from the 16th of April to the 21st of April, with the playoffs taking place from the 19th of April at the NSCI Dome in Mumbai. Like all the ESL tournaments this year, ESL One Mumbai will not be a Dota Pro Circuit tournament, but it will have a whopping prize pool of $300,000.
