Dota 2’s International 2022 – Only 2 Open Spots Remaining

The International is one of the biggest esports events overall in terms of stakes, prize money, and viewership. It is not simply the biggest competitive Dota 2 event of the year.

The competition returns to its former splendor this year, attracting spectators from all over the world to SunTec Singapore and Singapore Indoor Stadium to see the top teams from six regions compete for the Aegis of Champions.

The Tournament Explained

Between a revised Last Chance Qualifier, the group stage, and the main event, games will be spread out according to an entirely new format over the tournament’s duration from October 15 to October 30. 20 teams will be able to compete as a result, with 12 of those teams automatically qualifying via Dota Pro Circuit points obtained from regional leagues and Majors. The remaining eight berths, meanwhile, belong to clubs that triumph in one of several postseason qualifiers.

After the Arlington DPC Major, any team that did not receive a direct invite will have two additional opportunities to qualify for TI11, the first of which is the standard regional qualifier. Through a regional qualifier, one more team from each of North America, South America, Western Europe, Eastern Europe, China, and Southeast Asia will be assured a berth at TI11. The rosters that placed second and third in those qualifiers will be placed in a Last Chance Qualifier that will happen right before TI11. Invites to advance to the group stage will only be extended to the top two teams from the LCQ.

Here are all of the teams that have qualified for TI11 via various routes as The International preparations get underway and the final Major comes to an end.

Considering how tough the qualifiers were, we are in for nothing less than a spectacular tournament that will probably be a breakthrough for some of the younger talents. Teams that were invited may have preserved some energy, but the other teams can proudly say they have momentum on their side. Either way, one thing is sure – nobody will be bored once the fighting starts.
