As the DPC SEA 2023 Tour 3 Division 1 approaches, Southeast Asian teams are eagerly gearing up for the ultimate showdown.

This last Regional League tournament of the season will be pivotal for many teams as they fight to secure a coveted spot in the Bali Major.

One of the top contenders in the league is Talon Esports, who recently placed 7th-8th at the Berlin Major. Execration and Team SMG are also determined to make a comeback after finishing 15th-16th in Germany.

Adding to the excitement, Blacklist International has recruited SEA veteran Damien “kpii” Chok to their roster, hoping to turn their season around. Army Geniuses and Bleed Esports managed to retain their Division 1 spots from the previous Tour and remain in the running.

Meanwhile, BOOM Esports and XERXIA, the two Division 2 teams that advanced from Tour 2, will compete alongside the top eight teams in the final DPC SEA Regional League of the year.

Format of DPC SEA 2023 Tour 3 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 more than two teams are tied, the tiebreaker will be a best-of-one instead.

The top three teams qualify for the Bali Major.
