The Frankfurt Major winners OG are taking home $3 million in the first Major tournament following Valve’s announcement that a Dota 2 competition would take place every quarter leading up to the main International event. OG, a four month old team, defeated Team Secret, a fan favorite, 3-1 at the end of the nine day tournament in Germany.

The next major, taking place in Shanghai, China, will take place from March 2-6, 2016. Valve also announced that the location would be the Mercedes Benz Arena and hosted by Perfect World. The arena can hold 18,000 people, larger than Frankfurt Major’s Festhalle which can hold 13,500 with no seats.
