The third and final DPC 2021–22 Season tour has concluded, officially bringing the league competition for that season to a close.
The conclusion of the DPC 2021–22 Season Summer Tour does not signal the cessation of Dota 2 competitive competition.
Not yet, so don’t use the reset key. The competitive year is just beginning to bubble and heat up toward the boiling point, which is all it signifies.

2022 PGL Arlington Major
The first Major to take place in North America since the Boston Major in 2016 is the PGL Dota 2 Major Arlington 2022.
Between August 4 and August 14, 18 teams will compete for a piece of the $500,000 prize pool and their last chance to earn the crucial Dota Pro Circuit points they need to guarantee a spot at The International 2022.
Only four teams—Thunder Awaken, PSG.LGD, TSM.FX, and OG—have formally received their TI invites to yet.
The 2022 Olympic qualifiers
The top twelve teams, as determined by DPC points, are automatically qualify for The International 2022 at the conclusion of the third tour.
Regional qualifiers will be used to fill the remaining seats. If they do not replace more than two players from their third tour squad, all teams who took part in the regional leagues’ third tour are eligible to compete in the regional qualifications. There won’t be any Open Qualifiers, like there weren’t any the previous year. The third tour’s open qualifiers will basically serve as TI Open Qualifiers because every Regional Leagues will hold an Open Qualifier tournament for their Division II spots.
The International 2022 will now have 20 teams instead of 18 after it was revealed on January 22, 2022, that the second- and third-place teams from each region’s qualifiers will compete in the Last Chance Qualifier LAN tournament prior to The International to determine the remaining two qualification slots.
The International 2022
The International in Singapore will be the biggest Dota tournament ever, involving 30 top-tier teams competing over four consecutive weekends to advance to the Aegis of Champions.
The grand finals of International 2022 are scheduled to take place on October 30 in Singapore, beginning on October 8 with the offline/LAN last chance qualifiers.
