By the way, not only Esports lovers, but also betting lovers are eagerly waiting for Dota 2 The International. Because, thanks to high Dota 2 rates, there are opportunities to make serious gains. Let's start!

  1. The DPC 2022 season split into Division 1 and Division 2, each consisting of eight teams. In DPC 2022, there will be a total of 6 different regions of the World. Each league will run for a maximum of six weeks. And at the end of the league, the last two teams from the 1st league will be relegated to the 2nd league. Then, the teams in the top two in the 2nd league will be entitled to go to the next league. The teams that finished last in League 2 will be replaced by the teams that won the regional league open qualifiers.
  2. There will be a total of 96 teams in the 6 Leagues of the DPC. And the 12 teams with the highest scores in these leagues will be able to participate directly in TI 22. Eliminations will be held for the remaining 6 teams. The International, the biggest tournament of Dota 2, will happen between the 18 teams that emerged as a result of these eliminations.

  1. When The International adventure begins, the teams are divided into two groups as A and B. In order to advance to the next phase of Dota 2 International, teams enter the competition for the next time.
  2. Teams can leave the tournament according to the number of wins in the Group Stage. In this elimination stage, 16 teams move to the next level of the tournament.
  3. The remaining 16 teams will play under a double elimination format. Again, 16 teams divide into two groups and fight each other again. A total of four teams from two groups, ie 8 teams, qualify for the next round as a result of the eliminations.
  4. We want to say that the last eight qualified teams are facing a very serious stress. Because teams that do not win their first match, will leave the competition. Eight teams start a three-game elimination round to advance to the next tier. In other words, the team that wins both games will be the winner.
  5. The Dota 2 International 2022 grand final will be between the winner of the upper bracket and the lower bracket. The final match will be Bo5 and the team that manages to win three matches will be the champion. In addition, the champion team will receive the $18,000,000 prize. Yes, you heard it right, we are talking about 18 million dollars. We know it's a crazy number.
