TI12 qualified teams: Full list of teams attending The International 2023

It’s been an eventful Dota Pro Circuit, and we’ve got our full roster of TI12 qualified teams.

All three Majors were won by the same team — Gaimin Gladiators — but stiff competition lies ahead for an unprecedented sweep of a season’s full trophies.

Amongst them are perennial grand finalists Team Liquid, former TI champions that have found their form, and hungry teams that fought through qualifiers to earn their spots in Seattle.

TI12 will follow the same format as its latest iteration in Singapore, with the competition split up between three weekends:

Group Stage: October 12-15

Playoffs: October 20-22

The Finals: October 27-29

A new group stage format will take the place of the usual two big groups. Instead, four groups of five will be played, with the last team eliminated before moving on to head-to-head matches, meaning that every match matters.

There will also no longer be lower bracket best-of-ones, and every playoff team will get at least one best-of-three series to fight for their lives in the tournament.
