The brief interlude following last season’s Regional Finals introduced both Primal Beast and the 7.31 Gameplay update to the world, and while players are still exploring the new-meta landscape, it’s time for Dota’s top talent to face off and show the rest of us how it’s truly done.
Tune in as the DPC Spring Tour kicks off on March 14, sparking action across the globe as teams battle through Regional Leagues to earn their spot in the Spring Major.
Spring Tour Fantasy Lineups
Fantasy for the DPC Spring Tour is now available, ready to help plug you directly into the pro scene from the Spring Tour’s very first game. Featuring a new distribution of rewards, this season guarantees you’ll haul something home just by playing — so open your first card packs today and set to planning your preferred regional rosters in preparation for next week’s start of play.
Fantasy Reward Changes
Instead of 1/2/3 Fantasy Levels going to the top 50%/25%/10% percent in each period, now players will earn:
|Fantasy Level||Top of|
1/2/3/4 Fantasy Levels if they’re in the top 100%/50%/25%/10%. Every 4th Fantasy Level will earn you a new DPC Lineage treasure (coming soon), and all other levels reward you with shards. Make sure to set your roster each week for guaranteed rewards.
Fantasy Rules Recap
Before you open your cards and play, here’s a recap. You can also check out the gameplay breakdown in the FANTASY client section for full details.
For each weeklong period, fans set a Fantasy roster made up of two Core Player Cards, one Mid Player Card, and two Support Player Cards. Player Cards on a roster score Fantasy points based on how well they perform in that period’s matches. Silver & Gold Cards have stat bonuses that earn more points.
Player Card Packs
All players have been granted 10 starter packs claimable on the DPC menu under the Watch tab. Additional Player Card Packs can be earned daily by winning a game of Dota. Team Packs will be available for purchase directly from the PLAYER CARDS tab in the WATCH section as teams submit their Supporters Club bundles in the near future.
When you open a pack, you’ll receive player cards from the specific region you have selected.
Each DPC region is its own Fantasy league with its own player cards and unique lineup. You may choose to participate in multiple regional leagues, and you will earn Fantasy Levels based on your best fantasy league performance for the period. For instance, if you place in the top 10% of one league and the top 50% of another, you will receive the points for the top 10% placement. Region rewards do not stack.
At the end of each period, you will earn levels based on the Fantasy points for that period. Rewards will be unlocked based on your current overall Fantasy Level.
All Division I matches during the Spring 2022 Tour are eligible for Fantasy play. The highest scoring two games of a best-of-three count towards a player’s score. If a team plays more than one series during a period, only their highest-scoring series will count.
EEU Regional Tour Postponement
Dota 2 doesn’t see a way for the Eastern European DPC League to happen as planned for the foreseeable future and was recently forced to postpone the Spring Tour. Due to these circumstances, Epic Esports Events proactively reached out to us to waive their rights to the EEU DPC so that players, teams and the community can focus on safety and security.
Dota is inextricably a global game. The very name The International itself is a testament to the shared celebration of sport that connects people of every nation into a unique community of passionate fans. Dota 2’s goals with the tournament and DPC in general have always been focused on showcasing the enormous power of this human connection that grows with the participation of all segments of the Dota fan base.
