The International is not only the biggest Dota 2 tournament of the year, but also one of the biggest esports events in terms of stakes, prize pool and viewership.
This year, the event returns to its former glory, welcoming fans from around the world and seeing the best teams from six regions battle it out for the Aegis of Champions at SunTec Singapore and Singapore Indoor Stadium.
The event will run from October 15 to 30 and will use a completely new format to schedule games between the reworked Last Chance Qualifiers, Group Stages and the Main Event. This allows 20 teams to compete, 12 of which qualify directly through Dota Pro Circuit points earned from regional leagues and majors. At the same time, the remaining eight spots will go to teams that can survive one of several season-ending qualifiers.
After the Arlington DPC Major, a team that did not receive a direct invite will have two more chances to enter TI11, the first being a regular regional qualifier.
One additional team from North America, South America, Western Europe, Eastern Europe, China and Southeast Asia will be guaranteed entry through regional screening at TA11. The second- and third-place finishers from those qualifiers will enter the final chance play, which will take place before TI11. Only the top two teams of the LCQ will receive invitations to advance to the divisional stage.
As the preparations for the Internationals begin and the final major approaches, here are all the teams that qualified for TI11 in various ways.
