Two Dota 2 Majors are now complete, and there are only three left before this season's The International. The end of the recent Leipzig Major tournament means that there have been some changes in the rankings, but a new points champ hasn't been crowned. TNC Predator continues to lead this season with 5300 DPC Points.

That TNC is still in the lead is not all surprising considering they won the MDL Chengdu Major and managed to get a 7th-8th finish during the Leipzig Major. While there were teams who didn’t take part in the Chengdu Major, the competition was still fierce.

Second place is held by Vici Gaming, who finished second at the Chengdu Major and third at the Leipzig Major. Breaking in to the third spot is none other than Leipzig Major Champion Team Secret.

Fourth place is Evil Geniuses, who finished fourth at the first Major and runner-up at the most recent one. Rounding up the top five is Invictus Gaming, who also had good performances in the two Majors. During Chengdu iG finished third and in Leipzig finished at 5th-6th.

For the 6th to 10th place, the teams are:

  • Alliance (6th)
  • Team Liquid (6th)
  • J.Storm (8th)
  • beastcoast (9th)
  • Fnatic (10th)
  • Team Aster (10th)

History of the DPC

The DPC format was started after The International 2017. During this time, Valve had been receiving criticisms particularly on how they were handing out invitations for the International. During 2017-2018, the score of the teams was based on the total score of the top three point-earning players. This system put a premium on the Majors moreso than the Minors.

By the 2018-2019 season, there were a few changes made. The biggest one was that Minor and Major events were now going to be held in pairs. In addition, direct invites were no longer allowed. Instead the invitations were based on points. Invites were increased to twelve, with each region getting one slot through the qualifiers.

Another important change that came last season was that points were now given to teams instead of players. While roster locks were removed, teams that removed a player from their roster would lower their total points by 20%. However, getting a replacement player had no penalty.

Finally, Valve also put in a rule that multi-team organizations are only allowed a single team to be part of The International and even the qualifiers.
