The six winners of the regional qualifiers for TI11

The regional qualifiers for The International 11 are over and in each region, one Dota 2 team has qualified for the tournament while two others have qualified for the Last Chance Qualifier, which will take place right before the start of TI11, between October 8-12.

In almost every region, the favorites won. But there were a few upsets too. Teams with a lot of determination and many months of continuous practice proved to their more famous opponents that Dota 2 is a truly complex game that offers everyone a fair chance.

Western Europe

The battle in WEU took place between at least six teams and the favorites were Team Liquid, Entity, and Team Secret. In the end, Entity won with ease while Secret and Liquid finished on the podium. Unfortunately for Nigma Galaxy’s fans, they will not have the opportunity to watch Amer “Miracle-“ Al-Barkawi at The International this year.

Both Secret and Liquid have a real chance of finishing in the top two at the Last Chance Qualifier.

Eastern Europe

In the Eastern European Qualifier, Outsiders (former Virtus.pro) and Natus Vincere were supposed to be the big favorites, but the race was won by BetBoom Team. This is the team of Vladimir “RodjER” Nikogosian and Akbar “SoNNeikO” Butaev. Outsiders and Na’Vi finished second and third respectively.

In the case of Outsiders, it’s pretty clear that they will be one of the favorites in the Last Chance Qualifier.

North America

In North America, Soniqs had no opponent. They did lose the upper bracket final against nouns, but that was just a fluke. In the Grand Final, they won with a score of 3-0 against the same team and proved their strength for the last time before The International 2022. The second and third-place were won by nouns and Wildcard Gaming.

South America

In South America, Hokori won the race even though they were ranked third at the start of the tournament. The two strongest teams, Infamous and Tempest, finished second and third.

China

In China, the strongest team won. There were only two formidable competitors in the tournament: Royal Never Give Up and Xtreme Gaming. RNG finished first. The LCQ tickets were won by Xtreme Gaming and Vici Gaming. The first of these two teams has a decent chance of doing well in the last qualification tournament for TI11.

Southeast Asia

T1 had a good attempt in this qualifier but in the end, Talon Esports won. The efforts made by Anathan “ana” Pham and Topias “Topson” Taavitsainen were not sufficient but they did bring their team a top three spot. The second place was won by Polaris Esports. Neither of the second and third-place teams have real chances in the last qualifier.
