The TI12 SEA qualifiers are on, and it’s going to be a bloodbath.

While the region is immensely competitive, SEA teams have stumbled over themselves in international competitions this year. Aside from Talon Espots, no other SEA team managed to gain enough Dota Pro Circuit points to qualify directly to TI12, leading to a tense stand-off for just one qualification berth.

Teams have been seeded into a double-elimination bracket based on their DPC points, then their rankings in Tour 3 of the Regional League.

All matches are best-of-three, save for a few exceptions. The first round of the lower bracket is best-of-ones, while the grand final will be a best-of-five — where the winner claims qualification to TI12.
