South American Dota is not just about passion — they’ve shown they have the skills to crush it on the international stage.

The SA DPC is back, though few threaten the dominance of its top two teams. Evil Geniuses and beastcoast have established themselves as perennial favorites — they were the only two teams with winning records in Tour 1. Expect these two teams to dominate again — but there are always surprises in store.

Format of DPC SA 2023 Tour 2 Division 1

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 Berlin Major.
