MD2L Season 10 team sign ups will be live starting Oct. 31st. The season will be fully online, with a 9 week regular season and 32 team double-elim weekly BO3 online playoffs concluding with a shortened tournament weekend (final 8 teams/ the final 4 rounds of the playoffs bracket are played April 9-10th.)
The Midwest Dota 2 League Season 10 is finally here and open to all players below 6.5k MMR. For higher MMR players, MD2L is a place to showoff your talent and build team skills. For lower MMR players, MD2L is an opportunity to meet and learn from much better players and play in much higher skilled games than you would otherwise get the opportunity to.

-$100 per team sign up fee
-Sub 1k players adjusted up to 1000 towards cap
-All players must in the MD2L discord, verified, have updated their dotabuff within 7 days of application, and attached a timestamped MMR screenshot within 72 hours of application.
-6k players adjusted up (MMR in excess of 6k x 3.5 + 6000= new MMR), players who have peaked in MMR over 6.5k will be adjusted up only slightly more with our new formula:
(Current MMR – 6,000) * 3.5 + (Peak MMR* – Current MMR) + 6,000
*Peak MMR over prior 6 months; only for Peak MMR > 6,500
