Solely One SEA Staff Would possibly Get Immediately Invited to TI11. Right here’s Why
Dota 2 statsman Ben “Noxville” Steenhuisen talked about the SEA DPC 2021-22’s competitiveness whereas describing how the area might solely have the ability to ship one crew on to TI11.
As six SEA groups compete for the TI11 direct invite, Noxville acknowledged that it’s of their mathematical curiosity to present BOOM Esports and Fnatic “as a lot benefit as doable.”
If BOOM and Fnatic obtain direct invites, T1, Staff SMG, RSG, and Talon Esport, the opposite 4 groups within the hunt for the TI11 invite presently, could have a considerably simpler path within the TI11 SEA qualifier, from which one crew will qualify for TI11.
As aggressive as Southeast Asia (SEA) has grown within the Dota Professional Circuit (DPC) within the final yr, it has resulted in improved groups and a unbelievable rivalry for spectators to look at. Nonetheless, with regards to qualifying for the all-important The Worldwide 11 (TI11), the area could endure from the competitors. In keeping with Dota 2 statsman, Ben “Noxville” Steenhuisen, factors could grow to be so evenly distributed among the many high SEA groups within the ongoing DPC 2021-22 that only one instantly qualifies for TI11. Noxville additionally shared what the SEA groups want in Tour 3 and the upcoming PGL Arlington Main for these groups to move the possible TI11 level threshold.
In keeping with the DPC system, solely the highest 12 groups with essentially the most factors throughout the six areas obtain a direct invitation to TI11.
Dota 2 statistician Noxville explains how SEA’s competitiveness could come to harm it with reference to TI11 qualification
In Tour 3 of the SEA DPC 2021-22 Division 1, simply eight sequence stay and 6 groups are nonetheless in rivalry for a spot within the Main, which awards three berths to the area. As Noxville identified, this competitors could solely serve to hurt the area and its groups, as only one crew appears to be receiving a direct invite.
In keeping with his calculations, the present barrier to a TI11 direct invite is 980 factors, which suggests that the highest 4 SEA groups within the general standings want the next finishes in Tour 3 and the Arlington Main, present they qualify.
Fnatic want 160 (third place DPC)
Growth want 360 (1st place DPC, or 2nd/third + high 8 end within the main)
T1 want 550 factors (third place DPC + high 8 end within the main)
SMG want 935 factors (1st DPC + high 6 main | 2nd DPC + high 3 end within the main)
Moreover, RSG and Talon Esports, each up from Division 2, can nonetheless qualify for TI11, though their chances are high slim. To beat the present 980 level threshold, they might want to end within the high two in Tour 3 after which play within the grand finals of the Arlington Main.
It is usually doable that RSG and Talon Esports will probably be unable to make it if the edge will increase and on the similar time, Fnatic, BOOM Esports, T1, and Staff SMG could have to attain even higher outcomes on the Main.
On account of such fierce competitors, Noxville acknowledged that it appears statistically real looking for the opposite 4 groups to supply BOOM and Fnatic “as a lot benefit as doable.” This may imply that if BOOM and Fnatic acquire direct invitations, T1, Staff SMG, RSG, and Talon Esports could have a comparatively simpler route within the TI11 SEA qualifier, from which one crew would qualify for TI11.
It’s unlikely, nonetheless, that these groups will focus solely on regional qualifiers and never give their greatest within the present Tour and the Arlington Main.
A subsequent remark by Noxville summarized the present robust state of affairs in SEA DPC: It is silly that extra areas get diluted factors merely for being aggressive.
Along with regional qualifiers for every of the six areas, there will probably be a final likelihood qualifier with a complete of 12 groups, solely two of which is able to advance to the TI11 group stage. These 12 groups shall be composed of the groups that completed second and third within the six regional qualifiers, offering two SEA groups with one other alternative to compete at TI11. It will likely be a really robust ultimate qualifier, nonetheless.
