About LD2L

This is a league for players below 4K MMR to play Dota in a competitive-style setting without pressure from 5k+ players as may be common in RD2L or other leagues. The goal is to learn about playing Dota in general and about playing in a competitive team-based setting. External coaching, review, and education based on the games is encouraged but not guaranteed.

Teams in the league are separated into two divisions: LD2L for players under 3K MMR and LD2L Masters for players between 3K and 4K MMR.

The league is based in North America on the US East server. But we have consistently had players from EU, SA, as well as CIS whose ping permitted them to play comfortably on US East.
