Dota Pit League Season 3 is the third season of the Dota Pit League series of online tournaments organized by Dota Pit. It is the first to feature a digital compendium with stretch goals, which allowed the prize pool to increase from the base US$80,000 to slightly over US$265,000.
The tournament has suffered from constant delays as a result of its online-only structure, extending its duration way beyond schedule. Several teams, including Team Secret, have withdrawn for this reason.
- Qualifiers: Eight teams, double elimination bracket. Top two teams qualify
- Group stage: Two groups, round robin, best-of-2.
- Top 2 teams advance to winner's bracket.
- Third, fourth and fifth drop to lower bracket.
- Sixth place is eliminated.
- Playoffs: Best-of-3, best-of-5 semifinals and finals.
25% of sales from this bundle and 10% from Treasure of the Hallowed Lands are contributed to the tournament prize pool. Once this prize pool passes certain goals, bonus cosmetic items are unlocked for the compendium owner.
