The semifinal pairs of the show tournament from the Beyond The Summit studio among the bots in Dota 2 - Bot TI 2019 were determined. The rivals of Specter and Earthshaker will be Pangolier and Ember Spirit respectively.
Four pairs will fight in the lower grid - Tiny against Warlock, Pugna against Crystal Maiden, Dazzle against Magnus and Zeus against Nyx Assassin. Last year’s tournament finalists - Abaddon and Elder Titan - left the tournament at an earlier stage.
Bot TI has been held annually since 2018. Teams of five identical bots compete in it. Matches are held in the best-of-3 format. On the first map, fifth-level heroes fight without items, on the second map they have fifteenth level and inventory worth 10 thousand gold, and on the third - twenty-fifth level and with a stash worth 20 thousand. Organizers chose builds based on the most popular assemblies on Dotabuff. Black King Bar and Blade Mail are prohibited.
