AEF Dota 2 League Season 5
AEF Season 5 returns for its fifth season, after being unveiled during the conclusion of last season's Finals in Melbourne. Registration was released on the 9th April.
The format of the tournament continues from its previous tournament with seven teams playing in a weekly round robin format in a best of three. Each game win provides a point and a clean sweep provides three points. Head-to-Head is the used criteria to determine the placements for tied points and an additional Bo3 is open if the first criteria does not provide a clear result.
For Division 1 the top four teams in the groupstage qualify for the main event in the Union Theatre on the 7th July in Melbourne. The eight placed team is relegated to the second division and the seventh placed team is placed in a playoff battle with the second place team in the second division to determine the seedings for the subsequent season. Divisions 2 and 3 follow the promotion and relegation rules only.
