Danil “Dendi” Ishutin, one of the most respected Dota 2 players in the history of the game, is returning under the B8 banner, an organization he founded and captains. His return is one of the biggest Dota 2 stories in 2020 and Rivalry, an esports-focused sportsbook announced the partnership with B8 and Ishutin.
Dota 2 is considered one of the big three esports in the world and boasts the largest prize pools each year. The season culminates in a final event called The International with prize money last year reaching $34.3M USD. Denti was the winner of “The International” prize back in 2011.
Rivalry CMO Kevin Wimer commented: “At Rivalry we pride ourselves on supporting players and projects which resonate around the world. Dendi’s return to the fold will no doubt be cheered on by the entire community and we’re thrilled to be able to play a part in his new project in the world of Dota 2.”
B8s first competitive outing will be the ESL One Los Angeles 2020 European Open Qualifiers with a chance to compete in the biggest circuit of events in the Dota 2 scene.Follow us on
