The International is the biggest DOTA 2 tournament every year and the biggest gaming tournament in the world

The International 2022 Format

  • The DPC 2022 leagues are divided into Division 1 and Division 2, each consisting of eight teams. As you know, DPC takes place in 6 different regions of the world. Each league will last a maximum of six weeks. In addition, a total of 96 teams will compete in the DPC. During an entire competition, only 12 out of 96 teams will qualify directly for the TI 11. The remaining 6 teams will be able to participate in the 18-person TI 11 finals as a result of the eliminations.
  • After all teams from The International have settled, the tournament will be split into two groups, A and B. Teams will do their best to advance to the next stage of the tournament. However, only 16 teams can move up one tier. After that, it is expected that the double elimination system will be applied for the remaining 16 teams.
  • The 16 teams that move up to the next tier can continue the tournament in line with the points they get during the matches they play. Teams with fewer points will bid farewell to TI 11. With this tournament system, 8 more teams will be eliminated in total, so stressful days will be waiting for the other 8 teams.
  • Upper bracket and lower bracket competitions will take place between the last 8 teams. In the end, the champion of upper bracket and the champion of lower bracket will fight in the final of TI 11. And the winner will be the new champion of The International.
