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.

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.
