The Dota Pro Circuit is back in Southeast Asia.
Talon Esports put the region back on the map with a third-place finish at the Lima Major, proving that SEA still has what it takes to compete on the global stage. Still, there’s regional competition to go through first — and the region remains too close to call no matter what happens elsewhere.
What is the DPC SEA 2023 Tour 2 Division 1?

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

Format of DPC SEA 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 three teams qualify for the Berlin Major.
