The Dota Pro Circuit 2021/22 winter season is over. The regular championship ended in all the regions, followed by regional finals. At the end of these competitions, the best teams earned DPC points, allowing them to go to The International 11 in the future. But only 12 teams with the most points will be given this honor. The other teams will have to play in the regional qualifiers to get to the main tournament of the year. Read who has the most DPC points and is most likely to go to The International 11 in the material of Cybersport.Metaratings.ru.

Team Spirit — 550 DPC points

Team Spirit
Team Spirit

Team Spirit continues to prove it's the strongest team in the world right now. After winning at The International 10, the team didn't relax. At the moment, it is still (or already) in good form and obviously intends to take part in the main tournament of the year. The "Dragons" have everything to do that, as the competition in the CIS is not so high, so they can win again and again.

Team Spirit has smashed the DPC winter season in the CIS and ended it 7-0, although no one doubted it would. However, the "Dragons" have some problems during the regional finals. The team lost the starting match against HellRaisers with a score of 1-2 but then pulled itself together. In the remaining matches, Team Spirit blew everyone out of the water and shut Virtus.pro out in the grand final with a score of 3-0.

The team won 300 more DPC points for winning in the league, and 250 for winning in the regional finals. This is the maximum number of points available at the moment. Such a start gives Team Spirit a good chance to get to The International 11 directly. Since the team can win in the CIS every season, we can understand that the "Dragons" will most likely make it to the main tournament of the year, as they don't have rivals in their region. Besides, Team Spirit will also earn points at the majors, so we can say that the team has gotten to TI 11.

PSG.LGD — 550 DPC points

PSG.LGD
PSG.LGD

PSG.LGD is Chinese Team Secret. It is also a strong team that showed cool performance at the last The International. PSG.LGD took second place but despite this, decided to keep the roster. As expected, during the DPC winter season, PSG.LGD defeated all the Chinese teams and ended the league with a score of 7-0. One cannot say it was easy. Sometimes, PSG.LGD had a hard time, but it managed to finish the league without losses. During the regional finals, the situation changed: PSG.LGD started to play seriously and easily beat all the opponents, outplaying Royal Never Give Up in the grand finals with a score of 3-1.

Now PSG.LGD has 550 DPC points, which again is a good chance to qualify for The International 11. Given the team's level of the game, it's difficult to imagine it will miss the main tournament of the year. And knowing the character of the PSG.LGD players, we can be sure that they will not relax after a few victories in China. They will most likely continue taking points and dominating, not only in their region but in the world.

BOOM Esports — 450 DPC points

BOOM Esports
BOOM Esports

BOOM Esports is a completely new team that was assembled only before the DPC winter season began. It included famous players from Southeast Asia who have performed in the world arena. BOOM Esports is the strongest team in its region. It became the champion of the first league, ending it with a score of 6-1. And then it won the regional finals, confirming the title of champion, though with some problems.

For these two victories, BOOM Esports should have gained 500 DPC points, like Team Spirit and PSG.LGD, but before the regional finals began, the team made a substitution: replaced its carry Justine "Tino" Grimaldo for Souliya "JaCkky" Khoomphetsavong. Because of that, the organization lost 100 DPC points and now has only 450. It is quite much for Southeast Asia, but don't forget it's the most unstable region. Now BOOM Esports is on a roll but can start losing to everyone in a month. It is possible. So, the team should continue to work on itself and use their skills.

Gladiators — 430 DPC points

Gladiators
Gladiators

The Gladiators team is one of the main discoveries of the DPC winter season. The team has just assembled but is already showing good results, and not just anywhere, but in Europe, one of the strongest regions. Despite the big competition, Gladiators took second place in Europe (5-2), losing only to Team Liquid (6-1). During the regional finals, the team gave it its all and surpassed itself, taking revenge on Team Liquid and beating it in the grand finals with a score of 3-1.

Gladiators gained 180 DPC points for the DPC season and 250 points for the regional finals. Thus, the team has 430 points to get to The International 11. Frankly speaking, it's not much for Europe. There is great competition in the region, so if the players relax and won't place high in the next seasons, they can forget about the main tournament of the year. We hope it won't happen, as the game of Gladiators is exciting to watch.

Team Liquid — 430 DPC points

Team Liquid
Team Liquid

The situation with Team Liquid is similar to that of Gladiators. But the "Liquids" took first place in the regular season and the second one in the regional season. In total, this also gave the team 430 DPC points. However, Team Liquid has much more chances to get a direct invitation to The International 11 with these results than Gladiators.

The fact is that Gladiators is a young team. Today it has lit up and tomorrow it can fade. And Team Liquid has very experienced players who should show stable results for a longer time. It's difficult to imagine that this team would fail in the spring and summer seasons. And 430 points are a good investment in the future. So, this year we should wait for Team Liquid at The International.

TSM FTX — 430 DPC points

TSM FTX
TSM FTX

TSM FTX showed a decent game at the last DPC season, although it failed at TI 10 (top 16). This season, the team has kept its roster and continued to progress. Because of that, the well-known esports organization TSM FTX has signed the team. After that, the team defeated Evil Geniuses in an important match and got 180 DPC points.

Before the regional finals started, it wasn't considered the main favorite, but TSM FTX demonstrated a cool game and fought against Evil Geniuses again, now in the grand finals. The fight was very tight, and TSM FTX literally snatched the victory. Now it has 430 DPC points. Unlike for Europe, this is a lot for North America as in the remaining seasons, TSM FTX will at least be in the top 3. These points will most likely be enough for The International 11.

beastcoast — 370 DPC points

beastcoast
beastcoast

Beastcoast is the brightest and the most famous team in South America. We supported it several years ago at The International, but since then, the Peruvians weakened a lot and took only third place in the first DPC season this year gaining 120 points. The team was beaten by Thunder Awaken and Infamous, so before the season started beastcoast was an outsider. Despite this fact, during the tournament, the team outplayed all its opponents and won against Infamous with a score of 3-0. After all, South America is a weak region, so even if beastcoast is not in its best shape, it has all chances to make it to The International 10 directly.

Quincy Crew — 300 DPC points

Quincy Crew
Quincy Crew

Quincy Crew was considered the strongest team in North America before the regional finals, as it smoked the competition in the regular season (6-1) and earned 300 DPC points. But during the finals, the team fell apart and could not even make it to the grand final, losing to both TSM FTX and Evil Geniuses. And no points were given for third place in this tournament, so Quincy Crew still has 300 DPC points. In North America, it will probably be enough to get at the main tournament of the year, if the team doesn't make any replacements. Anyway, now Quincy Crew has the most precarious position of the "big three" of North America.

Thunder Awaken — 255 DPC points

Thunder Awaken
Thunder Awaken

Thunder Awaken is a new name for the well-known team Thunder Predator. It played best of all in South America during the DPC winter season and easily took first place. Therefore it was considered the main favorite before the regional finals began. But the opponents suddenly began to play much better, and the Thunder Awaken players, on the contrary, relaxed. Due to this fact, the team didn't manage to even get to the top 3 and earn extra DPC points. Thunder Awaken also lost 45 DPC points because of the substitution during the season, so now it has only 225 points. It is a poor result, but in South America that might be enough to get you an invitation to The International 11.

Evil Geniuses — 250 DPC points

Evil Geniuses
Evil Geniuses

Evil Geniuses started the regular championship with a losing streak. After such a start, it seemed the team would fall into the second division. But Evil Geniuses managed to mobilize energy and never lost another game in the league. The team took third place and got 120 DPC points. Evil Geniuses had to distinguish itself in the regional finals to improve its position. And so it happened, except that TSM FTX did not let EG win. Evil Geniuses had to be satisfied with 130 DPC points for the finals, which makes a total of 250 points. It's not a huge number, but with such a beginning Evil Geniuses will definitely be able to get the number of points needed to get a direct invite to the main tournament of the year.

Royal Never Give Up — 250 DPC points

Royal Never Give Up
Royal Never Give Up

Royal Never Give Up is only the second Chinese team on the list of the team with the most points during the DPC winter season. Royal Never Give Up got 120 points for third place in the season and 130 points for second place in the regional finals. The result doesn't seem enough but don't forget that all these battles were in China which has a completely different level of play. If Royal Never Give Up had played in some other region, for instance, in North America, it would have easily taken first place. So, this team is highly likely to make it to The International 11.

INF.UESPORTS — 223,98 DPC points

All the top teams play at different levels. Some teams are strong, the others have a long way to go, but to some extent, they all deserve a place on the list of teams with the most points. And the presence of INF.UESPORTS here is pure chance. The team's play is rather mediocre and it cannot be a rival to its stronger opponents. However, even this level of play is enough to rank high in South America. INF.UESPORTS earned 310 DPC points for the entire season, but due to a series of replacements, their number has dropped by a third. And even so INF.UESPORTS managed to get into the top 12 of the winter season.

The results of the season

As we see, the system developed by Valve works strangely. There are three teams from South America and three teams from North America among the contenders for the invitations to The International 11. There are two teams from China and Europe and one team from the CIS and Southeast Asia. Of course, this does not at all reflect the strength of the teams. Sadly, the main tournament of the year will again be attended by teams that don't deserve to be there.
