Since our last blog we have completed a few exciting additions to the platform!

For starters, we have finally added a place for all players to report bugs, suggest the next title and, most importantly, add in suggestions on how you think we can make FirstBlood better. What you like, don’t like, suggestions on improvements. If you haven’t noticed, we truly listen to you, and, our community. This is a place for everyone to come together on community feedback, now! Add in your suggestions, vote and comment on all other player suggestions at

Next, we are proud to launch our new Lobby Redesign. Helping players get to their matches even easier while now showcasing more of what the platform has to offer in a UI/UX overhaul.

The team has also launched our beta, “News” Feature. We want to ensure all players are up-to-date on any and all important FirstBlood related, information. Never miss a thing with our newest “News” feature. Located at the top right of the FirstBlood app!

“News” Feature

We have one more exciting feature launch as well. After launching our advanced one-of-a-kind tournament automation technology for Dota 2, we have been asked if and how we can use this technology for 3rd parties. The time has come. We have opened up the opportunity to run private tournaments! Giving 3rd parties the opportunity to leverage our advanced tournament technology, on the FirstBlood platform. Expect to hear more on this, next year!

That’s it folks. We look forward to an exciting 2018 and everything that is to come!
