The current Dota 2 esports landscape provides Dota Pro Circuit points to teams for their placements in Dota 2 tournaments. However, it remains the tournament’s prerogative to determine which teams to invite to their tournaments. While the start of the season saw the western tournaments invite mostly western teams, the current part of the year has more Chinese tournaments.
Therefore, Chinese tournament organizers are now inviting mostly Chinese teams. This definitely gives the Chinese teams an advantage as we head into the final quarter before the International.
Hope Valve factors in tournament region bias in their qualifier slots allocation. It would be insane if China still gets the most qualifier slots this year. They should also factor in DPC points of teams that aren’t top 8 to determine which regions deserve more slots.
