List of all tournaments

Dota 2 is a strategic computer game, in the course of which teams improve their skills and abilities. To stir up interest in Dota, developers have provided for tournaments.

Tournaments: what are they, what types exist?

A Dota 2 tournament is a competitive event where teams from all over the world (both beginners and professionals) can participate. A distinguishing feature: teams have approximately the same level. This is reasonable since a team that has only been playing for a couple of weeks will obviously not withstand against pros with several years of gaming experience.

All Dota 2 tournaments are divided into several types:

  • Tier 3, Tier 4 - mostly these are small competitions within a region or country, a good chance to stand out among other beginners;

  • Tier 2 - both amateur teams and experienced ones participate; they often offer decent cash prizes and DPC points;

  • Tier 1 - competition where a significant prize pool is played out, often held offline. Such tournaments are full-fledged sports events. Stadiums in the largest cities of the world are specially booked for them and tickets are sold for attendance.

Tournaments are needed for teams primarily so that players can improve their skills, think over new strategies and study the weaknesses of their opponents, as well as simply win some prize pool. When there is an opportunity to participate and compete in larger international tournaments, such as Major or The International, the team is more prepared in terms of the game.

All professional tournaments, which vary in tiers (level of team skills), are presented on

Of course, each team has its dream competitions in which they want to play and test their strength. If we are not talking about esportsmen, but about people who follow esports, then you should know that there is a schedule of tournaments for the year. Each of them happens at a certain time (for example, several days or weeks) in a certain place, where all participating teams gather (if the competition is like "Tier 1" or "Tier 2", then sitting at home in your favorite chair and playing will not work).

Regardless of the year, Dota 2 tournaments are planned. There are those that are held annually, or those that are organized based on circumstances. You can view them right on our website. Here is information about upcoming tournaments and matches, current and past ones. The "Tournaments" tab provides visitors to the site with all the necessary information.

The situation is most interesting with annual events awaited by players and teams worldwide:

  • The International;

  • Major;

  • DPC leagues;

These tournaments are held every year and are considered "top tier". Every team dreams of participating in them, regardless of the level of professionalism and experience in Dota 2.

The International is the most important event in the Dota 2 game. The best teams of the world level (from six regions) will demonstrate their skills in battle against each other. As of 2022, the number of participating teams should be 30. The tournament is organized by the developers of the game Dota - Valve company. The tournament can be compared in significance in esports, for example, with the holding of the World Cup in football. In addition to the prize pool, the Aegis of Champions is also awarded - the tournament award. It is a shield made of silver and bronze, on which all the names of the winning team are engraved, starting from the very first tournament.

Major - a series of tournaments that take place in LAN format. For a competition to receive the "Major" status, there are a set of rules controlled by Valve themselves. Eighteen teams from all over the world participate in the competition, a round-robin system of the group stage and playoff grid are used. The prize fund amounts to a minimum of 500,000 dollars and 3,500 DPC points.

There are also sponsored tournaments, like DreamLeague. This particular tournament often takes place online and is not included in the DPC ratings. Sixteen teams participate in the tournament, which receive invitations to participate in advance. The prize pool is substantial - 1,000,000 dollars, and they are divided among all teams, depending on the results.

The tournaments presented above are considered the best, and every team dreams of participating in them: both beginners and pros. Of course, there are a number of other tournaments in which teams participate, the above are just some of the most anticipated every year.
