Dota Pro Circuit 2019-20

From Liquipedia Dota 2 Wiki


In April 2019, Valve announced The Dota Pro Circuit 2019-20.[1]. Starting in Fall 2019, Valve will determine the format for both majors and minors, as well as qualifiers. In this year, teams can drop players up until the beginning of the final Minor. At that point teams can no longer release players from their roster. However, teams can still add players if they don't have a full set of 5 up until 12PM PST the day after the last Major concludes, at which point all teams will be considered locked and TI Invites will occur. The top 8 teams with the most DPC points from each region that didn't get invited to The International and have a full roster in the DPC site will be invited to the Regional Qualifiers.
Valve has determined the Format of Majors, Minors and the Qualifiers on September 10th,[2]

  • Majors Format
    • Phase 1: 4 Bo3 GSL groups of 4.
      • Top 2 teams per group advance to Upper bracket.
      • Bottom 2 teams per group advance to lower brackets.
    • Phase 2: 16 team Double Elimination with 8 starting in Lower Bracket.
      • Bo1 matches for 1st round of lower bracket.
      • Bo5 finals.
      • Bo3 for all other matches.
  • Minors Format
    • Phase 1: 2 Bo3 GSL groups of 4.
      • Top 2 teams per group advance to Playoffs.
    • Phase 2: 4 Bo3 team double elimination.
      • Bo5 finals.
  • Qualifiers Format
    • This year Majors and Minors qualifiers are combined into a single, shorter one, to reduce complexity and time for players and organizers, and allowing to both give extra time to rest to players after a Major is over without majorly compromising the time for players in the minor to get visas when required.

    • 3rd from each group advances to Phase 3.
      • Everyone else is eliminated and gets 10 DPC points.
