Valve made many changes to the Dota2 Pro Circuit for this year. We think that this was a great move as many teams had their chances in the Dota2 Pro circuit. Compared to last year many teams were able to get points in the table. Valve also informed that the Top 12 Teams will be directly invited to The International 2019. The Major Improvement which we felt was very good that Teams can qualify for the majors through the Minors. The Teams were also able to earn Pro Circuit points by winning the Minors.
The Top Teams as last year held their ground in the points table as Team Secret, Virtus pro and Vici gaming topped the Dota2 Pro Circuit. The surprise Re Ebtry was Alliance as they receive a Direct invite as they have ended in 11th Position in the DPC Season. Check Out the Dota2 Pro Circuit Standings
We strongly believe that this Year Team Secret have a chance to win the TI. They have topped the DPC season and the team Co-Ordination looks amazing. Virtus Pro are also Consistent with their Performance. Team Liuqid and Psg.Lgd also have a chance at winning this TI.
