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

Updated on May 15, 6:40 a.m. (GMT+8): Updated results.

After the recent conclusion of the Berlin Major, all South American Dota 2 teams are gearing up for the upcoming DPC SA 2023 Tour 3 Division 1.

In the past two Tours, the competition has primarily revolved around the two leading teams in the region — beastcoast and Evil Geniuses.

Six teams will be vying to knock the top two off their perch in a three-week regional league tournament.

These teams include Thunder Awaken, Infinity, Infamous, Hokori, Mad Kings, and Balrogs — all of whom will be eager to prove themselves and potentially secure a spot in the upcoming Bali Major.

Format of DPC SA 2023 Tour 3 Division 1

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 three teams qualify for the Bali Major.
