Additionally, other notable teams such as Team Secret, LGD Gaming, and Shopify Rebellion also did not qualify, highlighting the fiercely competitive nature of this year’s qualifiers.


Impact of DPC Removal on the Competitive Landscape

The removal of the Dota Pro Circuit (DPC) has intensified the competition. Teams now face a packed schedule with back-to-back tournaments. New events announced by BLAST and PGL have provided more opportunities for tier-2 teams and emerging squads to make their mark, contributing to the dynamic and unpredictable nature of the Dota 2 competitive scene.

Anticipating the Magic of TI 2024

While the Major tournaments of 2024 have been relatively straightforward, The International is renowned for its unexpected outcomes and magical moments. New and underdog teams have historically disrupted the scene, as seen with Team Spirit in 2021 and OG in 2018. This year could bring similar surprises, making it an event that Dota 2 fans won’t want to miss.
