There's a different sort of LAN in Manila this weekend

If you were lamenting the fact that there's two Dota 2 events in Europe and CIS this weekend but a Southeast Asian event would suit you better, you're in luck. The Dota 2 All Star Weekend in Manila runs Oct 13-15!

The event isn't a Valve Major or Minor, and it doesn't even have a prize pool. What it does have is four top tier teams playing some quality Dota 2 as well as a lineup of top tier talent casting and hosting the event.

This event is more like a festival and less like your typical LAN. It will feature musicians and entertainers performing and a Hollywood film shoot (members of the crowd have a chance to be in a film!). It is taking place in a now-iconic venue in Manila, the Mall of Asia Arena, which has played host to The Manila Major as well as ESL One Manila 2016.

In addition to the showmatches between the four invited teams, there will be several other events such as a 1v1 Challenge, a match featuring pros mixed with amateurs from the audience and the mysteriously titled "Dota 2 Celebrity Game".
