The Dota 2 Spring Tour is done for most regions. That means we now have an idea of who’s battling it out in the upcoming Stockholm Major.

The Stockholm Major is the first Major of the 2021–2022 DPC Season. The event is to be held at the Hovet Arena in Stockholm from May 12 to May 22. The tournament has a prize pool of $500,000 with total DPC Points of 3,530.

Here are some of the details of the tournament:

  • Participants
    • Four teams each from Western Europe and China.
    • Three teams each from Southeast Asia and Eastern Europe.
    • Two teams each from North America and South America.
  • Group Stage (May 12 to May 17)
    • Two groups of nine teams each.
    • Single round-robin.
    • All matches are Bo2.
    • Top four teams from each group advance to the upper bracket of the playoffs.
    • 5th and 6th place teams from each group advance to the lower bracket of the playoffs.
    • Remaining teams are eliminated.
  • Playoffs (May 18 to May 22)
    • Double-elimination bracket.
    • All matches except Grand Final are Bo3.
    • Grand Final is Bo5.

Below are the teams that have qualified so far:

China Region

China has two tiebreaker matches remaining which remain crucial to those participating. Royal Never Give Up and Vici Gaming are fighting for fourth place, which is the last slot to join the Stockholm Major.

While Team Aster and Xtreme Gaming are already guaranteed to join the Major, they’re still doing a tiebreaker to determine placement. That’s because the second place gets 240 DPC Points while the third gets 160 DPC Points.

It’s PSG.LGD not only joined the Major but also got first place.

Eastern Europe

One thing the community is waiting for is what Valve’s decision is for Eastern Europe. Matches in this region have been postponed for reasons that should be obvious to everyone.

With three slots allotted, Valve needs to make a decision soon on what it's planning to do for the teams in the region. If the Stockholm Major pushes through without any representatives from this region, which is likely the possibility, then the teams are at a disadvantage heading to TI11.

It’s also important to remember that TI champion Team Spirit is part of this region and it’s not really going to be an exciting TI11 if the defending champions are not there to defend their crown.

What about you? What are your thoughts heading to the Major?
