The DPC SA 2021/22 Tour 3 Division I is underway soon, with a ticket to the PGL Arlington Major and The International 11 on the line.
The two top dogs in the region, Thunder Awaken and Beastcoast, have almost confirmed their ticket to TI. Should they repeat their dominant form throughout the year and claim first and second, at least one more South American team will make the trip to the TI11 group stages.
Who among Hokori, Tempest, Infamous, Infinity, SG esports, and Wolf Team will capitalize on the opportunity?
