Bet live on %tournament% with GG.bet Dota 2

Dota Pro Circuit (DPC) is a well-known international professional tournament format system for the Defense of the Ancients 2 (DotA 2) game. This tournament was introduced by the game’s developer, Valve, to determine the teams who will be eligible to obtain a one-way ticket via a direct invitation to the world-renowned The International.

The DPC is a newer elimination game that replaced the Dota Major Championship series (2015-2016). The said major change was frowned upon by the fans because of the unpredictable and non-transparent handling of the International invitations done by Valve. However, this was immediately resolved as Dota Pro Circuit has continued to exist up until now.

The playing format for DPC 2023-2022 season will remain the same as the previous season. However, the only thing that is changed is that it will have three tours, unlike the previous season that it only had 3 tours. And at the end of the final tour, the top twelve 12 teams produced by DPC will directly qualify for The International 2023. All remaining slots will be decided via regional, final chance qualifiers.
