DPC WEU 2023 Tour 2 Division 1: Schedule, results, format, teams, where to watch

The Dota Pro Circuit in Western Europe is more important than ever.

Odds are, if you are qualifying for the Major from Western Europe, you are going to end up on the podium. Team Liquid and Gaimin Gladiators fought out a regional rivalry in the Lima Major, while Entity finished top six. It’s going to be another tough campaign for Dota’s strongest region — and teams are hungry to prove themselves with more competition.

Format of DPC WEU 2023 Tour 2 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 there are more than two teams tied, the tiebreaker will be a best-of-one instead.

The top four teams qualify for the Berlin Major.
