The BountyHunter Series is back with a brand new Dota2 installment and a special twist. This time around, the focus is turning from the usual European landscape and the King of the Hill format and shifting to the Oceanic region with a fullfletched tournament. The Bounty Hunter Asia Special will kick off on June 19th and will run through June 24th where eight of the top teams in the SEA community will battle for a prize pool set at $2,500. Tickets are available to access all of the action via the DotaTV client, which also includes the RaiQ Custom Courier.
The event will be a major follow up for the region having just wrapped up their International 4 qualifier with the main event right around the corner. As for a list of notable competitors, the TI 4 team Arrow Gaming will be on tap.

Different from the previous King of the Hill battles, this format has been switched to a Double Elimination tournament. It will include BO3 play for the Winners Bracket, BO1 Losers Bracket, with a BO3 LB final and the Grand Final featuring a BO5 series.
