Teams are excitedly looking for outstanding results in their respective regions as the last Summer tour of the DPC gets off, hoping to earn significant DPC points that would help them eventually qualify for TI12.
The focus is still on the nine open positions, as teams are still competing for DPC points in an effort to earn a desired seat at TI12. More teams qualifying will cause the list below to be updated.
After dominating results in Tours 1 and 2 of the DPC 2023 Western Europe and second-place finishes at The Lima Major 2023 and The Berlin Major 2023, Team Liquid were the first team to qualify for The International 2023 (TI12).
At back-to-back victories in The Lima Major 2023 and The Berlin Major 2023, Gaimin Gladiators, who are arguably the most powerful Dota 2 team in the world right now, were the second team to secure an invitation to TI12 at the end of the DPC WEU 2023 Tour 3: Division I.
The South American powerhouse, which has continuously delivered outstanding results in the South American DPC Leagues as well as the Lima and Berlin Majors to qualify as the third team for The International 2023, is perhaps the greatest squad to ever represent the continent.
The North American veterans have succeeded once again, but this time under a different flag. The squad solidified its spot at The International 12 with dominant results in the North American DPC and passably excellent performances in the Lima and Berlin Majors.
At The International 12, the current champions will have the opportunity to defend the Aegis. Even while the squad hasn't quite reached the heights it displayed in Singapore the previous year, Tundra has shown that it can still put up a fight against any team it faces.
The importance of doing well in the DPC Tours has increased due to Valve's reticence on the adoption of Last Chance Qualifiers for The International 12.
Teams are conscious of the fact that their performance in this vital round will directly affect their prospects of earning a berth at The International 12 and that the stakes are high. As teams strive to establish their mark and claim their rightful spot among the top contenders at TI12, the Dota 2 community excitedly anticipates the forthcoming matches and anxiously watches the outcomes.
