Last call: two teams to book their tickets to The International 11’s group stage.

The TI11 Last Chance qualifier is the final opportunity for 12 teams to squeeze their way into the biggest Dota 2 event of the year.

With representatives from six regions and millions of dollars on the line, this is also a chance to settle the debate as to which region deserves the additional slots.

The group stage will last for the first two days. The playoffs will take place starting October 10, and will last three days — eventually deciding the last two teams to join the TI11 group stage.
