Dota Minor Championships

From Liquipedia Dota 2 Wiki

The Dota Minor Championships is a championship series announced by Valve in 2017[1]. Eligible third-party tournaments must have a minimum prize pool of $150,000 USD, at least one qualifier from each of the six primary regions (NA, SA, SEA, CN, EU, and CIS) and a LAN final. In this case, Valve will increase the prize pool by another $150,000 USD, for a minimum of $300,000 USD.

Competing in Major and Minor Championships will award qualifying points to players which will be the sole criteria for invitations to The International 2018. Points will be awarded based on the total prize pool of a tournament, with Majors giving more points per prize pool dollar. The total points per tournament will also partially scale based on the time of year, with tournaments closer to The International awarding additional points. Only the top 3 point earners on a team will contribute towards a team’s effective total qualifying points. Finally, Valve will maintain leaderboards of player and team qualifying points for everyone to follow.

As of DPC 2021, minors are replaced by Regional Leagues.
