Do teams earn points, or do players?
All points are earned by players.
If a player changes teams, do those players' points go with them?
Yes.
Are the tournament's points split among the players?
No, all players receive the full amount. For example, if a team wins 75 points in a tournament, each player on the team earns 75 points.
How is the overall point total for a team calculated?
The players with the top three points on a team contribute their points towards the team's total.
How many teams receive direct invites to The International 2018 from points?
The top eight teams with the highest point totals receive direct invites to The International 2018. The other invited teams will be determined by Regional Qualifiers.

Do points determine invites to the Majors or Minors?

  • If you play with at least 4 of your registered players in the Qualifier and all 5 of your registered players in the LAN portion of the event, there is no penalty.
  • If you play with at least 4 of your registered players in the Qualifier and use a sub for the LAN portion of the event, the main players will earn 75% points and the sub will earn 50% points.
  • In all other cases, all players earn 25% points.
