Dota Pro Circuit
The Dota Pro Circuit is a competition that rewards teams with points for placements within Valve-sponsored tournaments. The top teams of the ranking at the end of the year are invited to that year's The International. The system was established after The International 2017, replacing the previous direct invite system.
