The Dota Pro Circuit (DPC) is a professional tournament format system for the game Dota 2, which is a competitive five-on-five game. Valve, the game’s developer, launched it in 2017 to select which teams are qualified for a direct invitation to The International, Dota 2’s top annual competition. The DPC replaced the previous Dota Major Championship series (2015–2016), which was criticized for Valve’s unpredictability and lack of transparency when awarding The International invitations.
A “Major” in the Dota Pro Circuit is a sponsored Dota 2 event comprising two teams from North America, South America, Southeast Asia, China, Europe, and the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS), a minimum prize pool of $500,000 (to which Valve contributes $500,000), and LAN finals. In addition, there is a “Minor” championship tier that follows the same criteria but has a $150,000 minimum prize money.
The Dota Pro Circuit DPC SEA 2021/2022 Tour 1: Regional Finals is a major and the continuation of The DPC 2021-2022 Winter Tour Regional Finals, where Valve canceled it last January due to hectic requirements, problems, and issues on scheduling a proper LAN event. And after such delays, they made alternatives in pursuing the event through running six Regional Finals tournaments.
The DPC Regional Finals for 2021-2022 will be held over two weekends, with three regions competing on February 11-13 and the remaining three on February 18-20. The top four teams from each region will compete in a double-elimination tournament with a prize fund of $100,000.
More so, the Dota Pro Circuit DPC SEA 2021/2022 Tour 1: Regional Finals is one of the hyped tournaments in the region, as fans always love to watch classic matches against their favorite teams. It is also a promising major event as there are lineup changes on most teams participating. And each is capable of defeating the others. In short, any team can win the tournament and claim the $50,000 and 250 DPC points.

Predicting a team to win in major or minor tournaments in the Southeast Asia region is one of the difficult things to do. There’s no dominant team in SEA as everyone is skilled and has the talents to level with each other. Each has different playstyles, hero pool, skills, and strategies in winning a game or the whole DPC SEA 2021/2022 Tour 1: Regional Finals.
Based on the recent DPC SEA 2021/22 Tour 1: Division 1, most fans predict that BOOM Esports will win the tournament because of their consistency and unpredicted draft in every match they have played with other teams. Some fans and critics would say that Fnatic would also have a shot to be the 1st place of Dota Pro Circuit DPC SEA 2021/2022 Tour 1: Regional Finals because of the undeniable connection of Armel, Raven, and Dj.
But again, others would say that T1 will always prevail, especially the addition of Gabbi, former TNC and Talon Esports player, would likely make a substantial change in the organization and provide the skills and talents they need to win the whole tournament. However, each team has its limits and weaknesses. Thus, it depends on how they play and prioritize winning.
