Who will make their way to Riyadh Masters at Esports World Cup? Watch live during May 20 - 26!

Format

Compact!

Format change, yet again? Fret not dear DOTA2 fan, it is a familiar change. With the same one-week format of Season 21, you won’t need to learn a completely new format. But this way we keep the action compact, without the tradeoff for quality (aka we try to avoid BO1s as much as we can).

Open Qualifiers: Mar 16 - 19
Closed Qualifiers: Mar 20 - 24

Here's how it breaks down:
