Ever since the introduction of the Dota Pro Circuit, the community has never stopped criticizing its system and teams have shown frustration in interviews on the intense scheduling and points distribution. The good news is that Valve do listen, we are now in the third iteration of Dota Pro Circuit and Valve have done a lot to optimize the system. Apart from that, VPGAME have heard that it’s highly likely that we would see radical changes to the DPC system in the next season. Here is what we have:
1. We may have only 3 Majors next season, Major slots will be decided through regional leagues.
2. Apart from the league that can qualify teams to Majors, each region may also have a secondary league.
3. Regional leagues might be played online.
4. Teams still will be able to secure their TI invite via DPC points, DPC points can be earned through Major and regional leagues.
Moreover, we’ve heard from our sources suggesting that Valve have the intention to meet up with teams in future tournaments to discuss and polish the aforementioned system. However, the plan might be compromised due to the recent coronovirus outbreak. Nonetheless, these changes do indicate that Valve have the intention to optimize the whole Dota2 professional system. Will it work? We don’t know yet, but at least it’s an important step in the right direction.
