DPC NA 2023 Tour 3 Division 1: Schedule, results, format, teams, where to watch

Following the conclusion of the Berlin Major, North American Dota 2 teams are now preparing for the highly anticipated DPC NA 2023 Tour 3 Division 1. 

The North American DPC scene has been dominated by two powerhouses, TSM and Shopify Rebellion, who are determined to make a comeback after their Berlin Major run. 

While TSM secured the top spot in Tour 2, they struggled to keep up with their opponents in Germany, resulting in a tied last place. Shopify Rebellion, on the other hand, finished as the runner-up in Tour 2 but only managed to secure a spot in the 9th-12th tier at the Berlin Major.

With North America’s top teams still finding their footing, this could be a chance for rising stars such as B8, Nouns, Felt, Team DogChamp, Sand King Gómez, and ALPHA to make their mark in the DPC scene and seize the moment.

This Regional League is the third and final of the three Tours for the Dota Pro Circuit this year.

Besides prize money, teams fight for a variety of opportunities. Squads that secure top placings will earn DPC points, improving their chances of acquiring a direct invite from Valve for TI12.

DPC NA 2023 Tour 3 Division 1 format

All eight teams in the Regional League will periodically play each other in a round-robin best-of-three.

Tiebreakers will only be played if it affects qualification — for Majors and relegation. A two-way tie will trigger a best-of-three tiebreaker. If more than two teams are tied, the tiebreaker will be a best-of-one instead.

The top two teams qualify for the Bali Major.
