The International 2023 teams

  The teams for TI12 will be decided through the accrual of Dota Pro Circuit (DPC) points from regional leagues and majors. So far, only Team Liquid has qualified for TI12 by accruing 1500 DPC points based on consistent performances throughout the season. Gaimin Gladiators trails TL in second place and despite winning both the Lima Major and ESL One Berlin Major, they are yet to seal their spot at the crown jewel Dota 2 event.

Tickets for TI12

  Information on the ticket sales for TI12 has not yet been revealed by Valve. We can expect more information to come to light in the upcoming weeks ahead of us. More details on "The Road To The International" will also be released in the coming weeks.
