Dota 2 eSports Major Tournaments & Structure
- They are international tournaments that carry a minimum prize pool of $500,000 sponsored by Valve, and are organized by third parties
- The teams that finish within the top eight earn points
- Invited teams should include four teams each from Western Europe and China, three each from Europe and Southeast Asia, and two each from North America and South America.
- There are usually two Majors organized every year, apart from The International. The most recent was the PGL Arlington Major 2022
- This is the brief structure of the Regional Leagues:
- Earlier called Minors, the Regionals are played out across three tours organized through the year.
- Each of the leagues represent one of the six main regions, spread out across two divisions with eight teams each.
- The prize pool for each league is $280,000, split as $205k for Division I and $75k for Division II.
- The top four teams from Division I will qualify for the upcoming Majors. The bottom two teams from Division I will be relegated to Division II, while the top two teams from the latter get promoted. The teams at the bottom of Division II will be replaced by the best performing teams from open qualifiers.
- Generally, Dota 2 tournaments are split into the following categories:
- Tier 1, which include TI, Valve-sponsored Majors, and other international tournaments that offer prize pools in excess of $275k
- Tier 2, which include the Regional Leagues and other events offering $50k and over as prize pools
- Tier 3 tournaments are smaller, their prize pools fixed at $3k and above
- Tier 4 are the lowest-ranked tournaments, usually played online
Qualification For Dota 2 Tournaments
- Each of the leagues are worth 690 points for Tour 1, 920 for Tour II, and 1150 for Tour III.
- Each of the majors earn points as well. The first is worth 1900 points, the second 2700, and the third 3500 points.
- The earlier tournaments generate less points, so teams are rewarded better for performances towards the end of the season and closer to TI.
