Riyadh Masters 2024 for Dota 2 is one of the biggest events taking place at the ongoing Esport World Cup and features the biggest prize pool of all the events. The event is hosted by ESL and features a prize pool of $5 million, with the winner taking home $1.5 million.

Eight teams had previously made their way directly into the group stage through the EPT Leaderboard, while 12 others recently competed in the Play-Ins. Out of the 12, eight have now also secured their spot in the group stages that are set to commence on July 10.

The Play-Ins saw Entity and Heroic get a one-up over other popular teams like beastcoast, PSG Quest and Aurora. Both teams had an impressive performance, especially Heroic, who recently entered the Dota 2 competitive scene. Entity on the other hand has been in the scene for quite some time now and has had some great runs at Tier 2 and Tier 3 events.
