Nonostante i giocatori professionisti si stiano godendo le meritate ferie, gli organizzatori del Dota Pro Circuit non si sono fermati. Oltre a gestire i cambiamenti nelle formazioni e nelle squadre, rilasciare patch di bilanciamento degli eroi e di aggiornamento al gameplay, hanno annunciato il calendario della stagione DPC 2019/2020 e hanno illustrato le novità del regolamento.
La prossima stagione prevede, come l’anno scorso, cinque Minor e cinque Major con montepremi di, rispettivamente, 300.000 dollari e 1.000.000 dollari.
Una novità riguarda i tornei di qualificazione: essi saranno solo cinque e, oltre a definire le squadre qualificate per il Minor e il Major seguenti, assegneranno anche dei punti DPC.
Ogni regione avrà inoltre garantiti due posti per i Major e un posto per i Minor, incentivando così le regioni storicamente più deboli. Valve assegnerà a sua discrezione i rimanenti slot.
Registration for the next season of the Dota Pro Circuit is now open. Make sure to register your team before September 28th 10AM PST to be eligible for the first major/minor qualifiers.https://t.co/hLqYPGkmpi

Vi riportiamo le FAQ pubblicato sul sito ufficiale:
How are points earned?Points are earned by all 16 teams playing in the Major and all 8 teams playing in the Minor, as well as every team in the regional qualifiers.
How many points are Majors and Minors worth?This season, Majors are worth 15000 points, and Minors are worth 660 points. Additionally, teams that participated in the regional qualifiers obtain DPC points.
How are points distributed based on tournament results?For Majors, which are 16-team double-elimination, the point distribution is as follows :
Place Prize pool Points 1 $300,000 4850 2 $160,000 3000 3 $110,000 2100 4 $80,000 1350 5-6 $60,000 900 5-6 $60,000 900 7-8 $40,000 450 7-8 $40,000 450 9-12 $20,000 150 9-12 $20,000 150 9-12 $20,000 150 9-12 $20,000 150 13-16 $12,500 100 13-16 $12,500 100 13-16 $12,500 100 13-16 $12,500 100
For Minors, the point and prize pool distribution is as follows:
Place Prize Pool Points 1 $72,000 140* 2 $60,000 120 3 $54,000 110 4 $42,000 90 5-6 $24,000 60 5-6 $24,000 60 7-8 $12,000 40 7-8 $12,000 40
*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?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?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?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?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?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?No.
