The International 2023 qualified teams are all now locked-in. The twenty rosters that will be attending the biggest Dota 2 tournament of the year are the following:
All teams qualified for The International 2023 through the DPC
9Pandas received their TI12 spot when the DPC minimum points requirement was lowered to 901. The Eastern-European squad had great performances at their regional Tours and a decent showing at the ESL Berlin Major.
Talon also automatically qualified to TI12 when the DPC point threshold got lowered to 901 points. The Southeast Asian team had accrued enough points throw the Tours and decent finishes at both previous majors.
Yet another Eastern European representative who qualified by having more than the new minimum of 901 DPC points. Consistently decent placement at their regional tours and a win in the final one gave them 1020 points.
After a win in the first round of the playoff bracket at the Bali Major, BetBoom have qualified to TI. The Russian team took down Tundra Esports in dominant fashion with a 2-0 series win.
The ex-Evil Geniuses roster, now playing under the Shopify Rebellion banner, has qualified for The International 2023. Shopify Rebellion is the first North American team, and fourth team overall, to qualify for TI12 after accruing 1170 DPC points -- ten points above the 1160 threshold.
The reigning The International 2022 (TI11) champions are the fifth team to qualify for TI12. They accrued 1160 DPC points with their performance throughout the DPC season and qualified to defend their throne for a second time at The International 2023. Tundra Esports is the third European team to qualify for TI12 via the DPC WEU region.

Team Liquid was the first squad
to secure their spot at TI12. The European powerhouse hasn't managed to win any Majors this year, but their consistent (top 2 at every single tournament they've attended since the year began) gave them more than enough points to qualify.
They were the second team to qualify for The International 2023. Another stacked European roster (with Quinn as the NA representative, of course) is heading into TI as likely the biggest favorites to win it all after their impressive domination at the Majors.
