Similar in nature to TakeTV’s Homestory Cup, The Summit tournament series is designed as a “behind-the-scenes” style event. When players aren’t actively competing, they enjoy a much more active role in the broadcast than what is normally seen at a traditional live event. Ultimately, BTS wants to give players a platform to connect more directly with fans and to share the personalities, insight, & humor behind the names.
The Summit series began in DOTA 2 in June 2014 with the DOTA Summit, an intimate tournament hosted out of a private house in the Greater Los Angeles area. Since the original Summit, BTS has run a total of 11 house-style events and expanded the event concept to other games, beginning with Super Smash Brothers: Melee in November 2015.
