The DPC 2021 Season 1 has reached the halfway point as Major spots and division relegations loom overhead.
Its been three full weeks of non-stop action on the Dota 2 pro circuit. While that might not seem like a long time, considering the DPC dry spell we just emerged from, it is long enough for the Major picture to start coming into focus.
Nothing is for certain, but here’s a look at where things stand so far at the halfway point of the DPC 2021 Season 1.
The Major Bound
Europe: It is a tight race in Europe. Arguably the strongest, and therefore toughest region, is still too close to call….. mostly. Little surprise that Team Secret is in the lead with a 4:0 record. They dominated the unofficial ‘off-season’ and didn’t take much of a break.
CIS: In the CIS region, the two iconic organizations are back on top this season, dominating the league. Na’Vi and Virtus.pro are both tied at 4:0 records The biggest moment will be when they face off against each other, potentially to secure the top spot and playoff vs group stage placement for the Major.
China: Heading into their week off for the Chinese New Year, Team Aster and Invictus Gaming have much to celebrate with 3:0 records each. The two teams surprised most fans as they rose up to the top from the closed qualifiers in a tough region.
SEA: Neon Esports is still the rising force of the SEA. Not many had expected to see them dominate the league and are now sitting in a pretty position of first place with a 4:0 record. The remaining games should not put much pressure on them and if they can maintain a level head and keep doing what they are doing — winning they are a shoo-in for the Major playoffs.
NA: Evil Geniuses might have taken quite an extended amount of time off before the season, but they haven’t lost their stride. The kings of NA are back and on top as usual. With a 4:0 record and significant skill drop between the top and lower teams in the region, there is no doubt they will be heading to Singapore.
SA: Beastcoast is still the South American sweethearts and is proving they are still head of the class in the region. They haven’t dropped a single game so far and with two spots for SA, they should without a doubt end up with one of them.
At the end of Season 1, the bottom two teams of the Upper Division in each Region will be relegated to the Lower Division, while the top two teams of the Lower Division will be promoted. The bottom two teams of the lower division will be eliminated from the league and open qualifiers will decide which are the two teams that will occupy those slots on the next season.
