The Dota Pro Circuit 2021/22 spring season is coming to an end. There is only one week left till the end of the league which will decide which teams will go to the ESL One Stockholm Dota Major 2022 and which ones will stay at home. In most regions, the overall picture is already clear: both favorites and outsiders have been identified. We even know the leaders who will definitely go to the spring major. But their exact distribution within the regions will be known only after the DPC final week. Read who will go to the major and what matches are worth watching during the last week of the DPC season in the material of Cybersport.Metaratings.ru.

Team Liquid

Europe

During the Dota Pro Circuit 2021/22 Season 2, Europe, along with China, was the most combative and competitive region. However, before the last week of the league in this region, three teams, which qualified for the ESL One Stockholm Dota Major 2022, are already known. These are Gladiators (5-1), OG (5-1), and Team Liquid (4-2). They have received their invites in any case. So, the main intrigue before the last week of the tournament is who will join them. Moreover, we still don't know the future order of the teams, as it greatly affects the DPC points distribution. It will be decided in the last three matches of the season.

The first match will be on April 19 at 13:00 UTC. Tundra Esports (3-3) and Brame (2-4) will fight there. It will be the most important match of the remaining ones. If Tundra Esports wins, it will go to the major and no one can stop it. Otherwise, the team will participate in a replay against Team Secret (3-4). If Brame wins, it will also take part in a replay, and if it loses, it will be on the verge of falling to the second division. The favorite of this match is obvious. The odds on a Tundra Esports victory is 1.13, while the odds on a victory for Brame is 5.10.

Tundra Esports

The second match will be on April 19 at 16:00. OG (5-1) and Entity Gaming (2-4) will participate there. If OG wins, it will guarantee itself first place at the regular championship, but if it loses, it will remain in the top 3. Entity Gaming is at risk of falling into the second division, but the victory will allow it to fight for a slot at the major (if Tundra Esports loses to Brame). The odds on a victory for OG is 1.25, while the odds on the other result is 3.55.

The third match will be on April 20 at 13:00. Team Liquid (4-2) and Gaimin Gladiators (5-1) will fight there. Both teams have qualified for the major, so they will play only for DPC points. The odds on a victory for Team Liquid is 1.80, while the odds on a victory for Gaimin Gladiators is 1.90.

Southeast Asia

Fnatic

In Southeast Asia, three DPS season matches will decide who will go to the ESL One Stockholm Dota Major 2022 and who will fall into the second division. The first match will be between outsiders, Neon Esports (1-5) and Nigma Galaxy SEA (2-4). They will struggle for survival on April 20 at 7:00. If Neon Esports loses, it will fall into the second division. And if it wins, it will play against Nigma Galaxy SEA once again. And then the loser will fall into the second division. The odds on a victory for Neon Esports is 2.23, while the odds on a victory for Nigma Galaxy SEA is 1.58.

Fnatic (5-1) and T1 (4-2) will meet in the most important match of the league. It will be held on April 20 at 10:00. Fnatic has an invite to the major. And T1 needs to win one more time to get it. Otherwise, it will have as many DPC points as Polaris Esports (4-3), and they will take part in a replay for the third place in Southeast Asia. Therefore, T1 needs to win. The odds on a victory for this team is 1.52, while the odds on a victory for Fnatic is 2.35.

The last match in Southeast Asia is the confrontation between BOOM Esports (5-1) and Team SMG (3-3). It will be held on April 21 at 10:00. BOOM Esports has gotten an invite, so this series means nothing to it. However, the team wants to end the season on the first line of the bracket and gain as many DPC points as possible, so it will play at its best. For Team SMG, this match will not be important, if T1 defeats Fnatic. Otherwise, if Team SMG manages to beat BOOM Esports, it will join a replay for the right to go to the major. The odds on a victory for BOOM Esports is 1.14, while the odds on a victory for Team SMG is 4.90.

There will be two deciders in North America this week. They will determine who will go to the major. TSM FTX (6-0) and Quincy Crew (5-1) will fight in the first series. This match is vital for the latter, as it will 99% miss the major in case of a loss. Quincy Crew needs to win. The situation of TSM FTX is more simple. If the team wins, it will end the league with a score of 7-0, earn the maximum number of DPC points, and go to the ESL One Stockholm Dota Major 2022 as the strongest team in North America. If TSM FTX loses, there can still be replays between three teams in the region. The odds on a victory for TSM FTX is 1.30, while the odds on a victory for Quincy Crew is 3.20.

Team DogChamp, on the other hand, is fighting for survival. If the team loses, it will fall into the second division. And if it wins, it will take part in a replay against The Cut for sixth place in the group and for staying in the first division. Evil Geniuses are the favorites of the match.
