Dota 2 tournament organisers and casters Beyond the Summit have reached out to fans on IndieGoGo to help them fund a new studio to work out of. Gamers managed to stump up their required $25,000 in under a day.

PCGamesN reports that the group, founded by players GoDz and LD, have been instrumental in bringing Dota 2 tourneys to Asia and founding dedicated event hub Gigabyte Dota Masters.

The duo hit their funding goal yesterday and the cash will be used to relocate the pair – they currently live some distance apart – deck out their office and provide essential tech and tools needed to improve their Dota 2 casting potential.

Their funding campaign still has 28 days left. If they hit $50,000 they will host an online invitational event which aims to boost the profile of Asia’s Dota 2 scene, and at $100,000 they will fly four teams from three continents to an on-location LAN tourney.

And some people still say eSports won’t go anywhere. Interesting.
