The Boston Major is midway to its climax but already today, we've received new information about the last Major which will come before the next TI. If you're excited for the finale of Boston Major, well then, you'd be as much excited to hear the great news about the Spring Major.

Dota 2 Spring Major

Keep in mind that Valve has made some changes in the past which basically entails lowering the number of Majors next year. 

As stated in GosuGamers, there will only be two Majors for 2017 down from three which 2016 had. What this means is that, in 2017, we will only be seeing Spring Major and The International as the two Major events in Dota eSport. It's still unclear what triggered the change as Valve initially conceived the Majors to be seasonal tournaments. But nevertheless, there's still good news behind every story and today, we're going to show you the newest details about the upcoming Major.

First off, Valve officially revealed that the Spring Major will be held in Kiev, Ukrain. This marks the first Major event to be held in the CIS region. Also, the studio that produces both Manila and Boston Majors will also be the one in charge for the upcoming Major.

The Spring Major Regional Qualifiers will commence at March 10-13 which sees some changes in the standard regional seeding. In the upcoming Regional Qualifiers, for the first time, Valve will divide the American Qualifiers into two regions, North and South while the CIS region will have a dedicated Regional Qualifier separated from the European region.

With the rise of two additional Regional Qualifiers, we may very well expect the expansion of the total number of teams included in the Major. Whether this new system will persist throughout the rest of the Majors still remains unconfirmed. But it sure does offer new opportunities for rising teams throughout the West.

What do you think of the new changes for the upcoming Major? Do you think it'll make the competition even tighter? Share your thoughts in the comments down below!
