The road to The International 2018 continues.
The last stop on the Dota 2 Pro Circuit is also one of the most critical – the results of the China Dota 2 Supermajor will decide the final line-up of teams that will be directly invited into the biggest esports tournament in the scene, The International.

Sixteen teams will face off across eight days at the Yuanshen Gymnasium in Shanghai, China, to compete for $1,500,000 and the lion’s share of 2,250 Dota 2 Pro Circuit Points – the largest point payout in the entire Circuit.
The ten directly invited teams include Virtus.Pro, Team Liquid, and Team Secret, three out of the current top four on the Dota 2 Pro Circuit rankings, who have all secured their slot to The International already. These three are all expected to make a deep run at the SuperMajor, and are sure to be some of our toughest opponents, despite Team Liquid suffering an early exit at ESL One Birmingham.
Also making their way to the Supermajor via direct invite are Mineski, Vici Gaming, Newbee, and VGJ.Thunder, four of Asia’s strongest teams and who are also within the Dota 2 Pro Circuit top ten. Our regional brothers in Mineski are sure to present a tough challenge as well, and we look forward to representing South East Asia with them.
Rounding out the direct invites list are Evil Geniuses, Natus Vincere and OG, who at the time invites were announced, also enjoyed their time at the head of the Circuit, but have recently seen a dip in form (in the case of EG’s early elimination at ESL Birmingham), or a change in roster (in the case of Na’Vi removing Nikola “LeBron” Popovic for a fresh up-and-comer Fedor “velhor” Rusihin, and OG replacing Roman “Resolut1on” Fominok with their coach, Sebastien “7mad” Debs). These teams have been known to show really good performances, so we don’t plan on underestimating them either.
The final five other teams at the tournament, like us, are coming in from winning their respective regional qualifiers: PSG.LGD, VGJ.Storm, Infamous, The Final Tribe and Team Spirit.
Join us as we compete for one of Dota’s biggest tournaments this year, we couldn’t have made it this far without you.
