dota 2  major event 2022

Every year, we get to see Dota teams around the world battle it out in Minor and Major events to earn enough DPC (Dota Pro Circuit) points. Once a team has enough points, they’ll receive a direct invitation to the biggest tournament, perhaps in the E-Sports space, The International.

Currently, teams around the world are battling to receive a spot in the upcoming Stockholm Major, a big event that gives out points as well as lucrative cash prizes. Making into the Major event in Dota is a big deal for Dota teams as these events also provide a good number of DPC points should the team get a placement in the tournament. The total cash prize offered this time around is $500,000, where the first place spot will receive $200,000 and a total of 680 DPC points. If you want further details on the breakdown of the prize money as well as the DPC points, check out the official ESL One site here.

Each region is given a certain number of slots that teams can grab if they perform well during the DPC season. Each team has to battle it out in their own region and rack up wins in order to qualify for the upcoming Major.

This will also be the first crowd event in 2 years due to the pandemic. We’ll also get to see the second LAN event this where players will be competing live at the venue, and this time surrounded with spectators.

The teams from the CIS region are unfortunately in a state of uncertainty due to the geopolitical climate at the moment. This might pose a challenge for team members from that region to obtain visas to travel to the venue should they be able to qualify for this Major. Valve have imposed certain conditions to be met by all the teams in the CIS region, however we’ve no heard or seen any Dota games coming out of that region. The participation of CIS teams in the upcoming Major tournament is still unclear.

Confirmed Teams in the Dota 2 Major

As of now, here’s the current teams that have already booked their slots to the Stockholm Major.

There are still games running as of now in regions aside from Western Europe. Besides, a couple of teams will now go into an additional tie-breaker games to ultimately secure their slot in the Major. So, huge important games across the board which could either be an exciting match or a very calculated, methodically boring match. Either way, it’s exciting to see these final teams putting all they have into these matches in order to secure a slot into the Major.
