*Since the minor winner also gets to participate in the major, they will only get points for the event in which they placed better (e.g: If they place last in the major, they will only get 140 points for winning the minor. If they place 8th instead, they'd get the 450 points for the major but not the 140 points from the minor)
Do teams earn points, or do players?
Points are now earned by teams.
If a player changes teams, do those players' points go with them?
No.
How many teams receive direct invites to The International 2020 from points?
The top twelve teams with the highest point totals receive direct invites to The International 2020. The other invited teams will be determined by Regional Qualifiers (1 per region).
Do points determine invites to the Regional Qualifiers? UPDATED
Yes, as long as the team has a valid active roster. Teams can opt out of an invitation if, for example, they are disbanded and the roster isn't active.
How many regional qualifier teams qualify for Majors and Minors?
Each region gets a minimum of 2 qualified teams for Majors, and a minimum of 1 qualified team for Minors.
How are the remaining three Major and two Minor qualifier slots determined? UPDATED
The regions for the additional qualifier slots are assigned by Valve, per Major and Minor.
Are there other ways to qualify for a Major?
Yes, in addition to qualifying via Regional Qualifiers, the winner of the preceding Minor is automatically qualified to the Major. This team will earn either the DPC points for their Minor victory, or their placement in the Major, whichever is greater.
Can teams qualify for both the Minor and the Major?
No, only teams that have not qualified for the Major can compete in the Minor qualifiers.
Can a team play with subs? UPDATED
Yes. During qualifiers, a team must play with at least 4 of its 5 registered players (this will cause no penalty). Any team that plays the LAN portion of a tournament with a sub will incur a 40% penalty on points earned from that tournament.
Can a team remove a player after qualifying to a tournament? NEW
Yes. However, a team that removes a player after securing a slot at a minor or a major, will have a 20% deduction to the points obtained during that event in addition to the normal penalty.
When can teams no longer switch players? NEW
Teams can drop players up until the beginning of the final Minor. At that point teams can no longer release players from their roster. However, teams can still add players if they don't have a full set of 5 up until 12PM PST the day after the last Major concludes, at which point all teams will be considered locked and TI Invites will occur.
Can I participate in The International Open Qualifiers if I belong to or work for a team that has been qualified to The International or The International Regional Qualifiers? NEW
No.
Who gets invited to The International Regional Qualifiers? NEW
The top 8 teams with the most DPC points from each region that didn't get invited to The International and have a full roster in the DPC site will be invited to the Regional Qualifiers.
