DreamLeague is back for another season, and the organizations behind the league have bumped up the playoffs prize pool by $75,000.

The league, which will kick off on Oct. 11, will feature eight Dota 2 teams competing for four spots in the $175,000 playoffs. However, the prize payouts will begin during the regular season, with a $56,000 prize pool distributed $1,000 at a time to the winner of each individual game, as has been the case in previous seasons.

Matches will played as best-of-twos during the regular season, while the playoffs, which run from Nov. 25-26 at DreamHack Winter, will be played as a best-of-three, double-elimination bracket until the Grand Finals. The Grand Finals will be one best-of-five match, and the winning team will take home $80,000.

The eight teams participating in the league have yet to be announced.
