Set across 6 local regions, the long-awaited Dota Pro Circuit for the new year is finally here
Following previous Dota pro circuit region alignments, the pro circuit is separated into six regions: Europe, China, Southeast Asia, CIS (Russia), North America, and South America. Each region will have simultaneous ongoing regional leagues (Twelve if including both upper & lower division of respective leagues) as global LAN tournaments are understandably not possible due to the global pandemic.
According to the blogpost made by Valve to herald the new year, the regional qualifiers will be the gateway to the first Major of the season. The winner of each regional qualifier will gain 1150 pro circuit points, boosting their chances of earning a spot in the Major. Otherwise, teams will have to fight through open qualifiers to enter the Major. More information on the pro circuit.
