1 months ago By Aaron Whittakar

The International Dota 2 Championships 2023—also referred to as TI 2023 or TI 12—will take place in Seattle, Washington, and serve as both the culmination of the current Dota Pro Circuit season and the twelfth annual edition of The International. The invitation procedure is the same as the last International; teams will be admitted to The International based on a point system determined by officially sponsored Regional Leagues and Majors.

This year’s The International is divided into two different parts, unlike previous years. The Road to The International comprises the group stage and playoffs (up to the top 8 teams), while The International itself comprises the playoffs for the final 8 teams.

In the next few weeks, spectators can expect to see fierce Dota 2 matchups during The International 12 (TI12), which will serve as the exciting cap to the 2023 competitive season. The event, which takes place over three weekends from October 12 to October 29, 2023, will include 20 teams. The competition will consist of a two-phase group stage, followed by the Playoffs and International, which are the two parts of the Main Event. Here is a look at the teams competing in TI12, along with the schedule and additional details on the tournament’s group stage.

Group Stage Format

Phase One (October 13–14)

  • A solitary round-robin group phase
  • Each of the four teams’ five groupings
  • Every series is a Bo2
  • The teams ranked third or fourth in the other group are matched with the top two teams from each group (A-B and C-D)
  • Each group’s lowest team is eliminated.

Phase Two (15–16 October)

Based on Phase One pairings, the remaining sixteen teams face each other to decide where they would end up in the playoffs—upper or lower bracket.

Main Event: October 20–22, 2023 (Playoffs Weekend); October 27–October 29, 2023 (Finals Weekend).

In a bracket with double elimination, sixteen teams compete.

The Grand Final is a best-of-five series; the other eight teams start in the Lower Bracket and the Eight teams start in the Upper Bracket.

Prize Pool

The tournament’s starting prize fund is $1,600,000. A further quarter of every Compendium sale is contributed to the overall prize fund. $3,012,817 USD is the current total prize pool (with an additional $1,412,817 USD).

Where You Can View Live Streaming of Dota 2

Fans may tune into the Epulze Gaming Twitch channel in addition to the Dota 2 client. Since several series are airing concurrently, you may check in to other streams to watch them all on other Dota 2 Twitch channels at the same time. Be aware that by using the Squad streaming option on Twitch, you may watch numerous suspenseful shows at once on your screen.

You may see the videos-on-demand (VODs) on the Epulze Gaming YouTube account if you were unable to witness the live matches of the Bali Major 2023 Group Stage.
