The Dota Pro Circuit is back in 2023, and the DPC SA 2023 Tour 1 Division 1 is a must-watch.

South American Dota surged forth to become one of the most exciting regions last year. Thunder Awaken and beastcoast — the same ten players now in different configurations on Evil Geniuses and beastcoast — both finished in the top eight of The International 11.

The then-Thunder Awaken roster also became the first-ever SA team to break into the top six at a TI event.

This Regional League is the first of three Tours for the Dota Pro Circuit this year.

Besides prize money, teams fight for a variety of opportunities. The top two teams from the Southeast Asian region qualify for the first Major of the season. The top six teams stay in Division 1 for the next Tour, while the bottom two teams will be relegated to Division 2.

All eight teams in the Regional League will periodically play each other in a round-robin best-of-three.

Tiebreakers will only be played if it affects qualification — for Majors and relegation. A two-way tie will trigger a best-of-three tiebreaker. If there are more than two teams tied, the tiebreaker will be a best-of-one instead.

The top two teams qualify for the first Major of the season.
