The second Main of the 2021 Dota Professional Circuit is now underway, which suggests that is the final probability for a lot of groups to lock in a spot at The Worldwide 10 with out having to undergo a regional qualifier.
In contrast to with the ONE Esports Singapore Main, which had two groups withdraw from the occasion as a consequence of COVID-19 considerations, the WePlay Esports AniMajor has a full roster of 18 groups, with solely a handful of stand-ins having for use.
In whole, the Main has a $500,000 prize pool and a pair of,700 DPC factors are up for grabs, with the highest crew taking house $200,000 and 500 factors.
The DPC factors are extraordinarily necessary for each crew competing within the event apart from Evil Geniuses, Virtus.professional, Invictus Gaming, and Staff Secret, since all 4 had been certified for TI10 earlier than the Main started.
Solely the highest eight groups will obtain any DPC level or prize cash, so there may be going to be a massacre between the groups that have to make it that far to keep away from taking part in in a possible regional qualifier.
The occasion will probably be break up into three levels: the Wild Card spherical, group stage, and playoffs. Beginning with the Wild Card stage, which runs June 2 to three, with two groups out of the preliminary six transferring on to the subsequent spherical.
These two groups will slot into the group stage, the place a complete of six groups will advance into the playoffs. The 2 prime groups will fill out the higher bracket of the playoffs, whereas the remaining 4 will all be positioned into the decrease bracket.
The playoffs, which start on June 9, will probably be an ordinary double-elimination bracket. All matches will probably be a best-of-three, up till the grand finals, which will probably be a best-of-five.
With all of that in thoughts, listed below are the standings for the WePlay AniMajor, break up up between every spherical.
