Current Standings for All Regions in the 2021 DPC Season

2021 DPC season

Six regions, six weeks, two divisions in each region, 96 competing teams in total, hundreds of players and games, and 18 spots up for grabs for the first Dota 2 Major of the season.

The Dota Pro Circuit includes every aspect of that list for its 2021 season. Fresh off the unforeseen suspension of its 2019-2020 season due to the COVID-19 global pandemic, the 2021 DPC season revamped its operations under a new format and outlook for its extensive competitive ecosystem.

Not only can the usual top teams continue to garner points to qualify for The International, those in the second and third-tier have a clear pathway that permits their ascension to the game’s apex event unlike before when they rummaged through extensive open qualifiers to sniff for qualification–not to mention prospect of earning substantial money which provides stability for their prolonged existence.

The current DPC presents teams far and wide with opportunities to thrive in their respective region beyond which they believed was possible in the past. All they must do now is compete and seize it.

Here’s a look at all the standings across the six major regions, both Upper and Lower Division, that comprise the 2021 DPC season.

Seeding Allocation

Teams finishing in the top two places in the Upper Division in the first part of the 2021 DPC season across all regions will earn a berth to the first Major tournament of the season. The first place team will advance outright to the playoff portion whereas the second place team will play in the group stage.

Subsequent seeding will vary for each region. In Europe and China, teams that finish third and fourth will play in the Major’s Wild Card, a preliminary competition preceding the proper tournament that decides the last two vacant spots for the group stage. The CIS and Southeast Asia will each send one team–the third-placed team from the Upper Division–to the Wild Card. North and South America won’t send any teams to the Wild Card.

The bottom two teams of the Upper Division in each region by this season’s end will be relegated to the Lower Division for the next season. They will be replaced by the top two teams of the Lower Division. Additionally, the two bottom-dwelling teams of the Lower Division will lose their respective spot and would need to reclaim their spot in the following open qualifiers.
