The best and brightest in Dota 2’s competitive scene are in mid-season form and ready to tackle a brand new patch at the Dota Pro Circuit’s Berlin Major.

In the DPC’s return to Western Europe, 18 of the world’s strongest teams will battle it out for positioning in the race for The International 12. And it will all be done on Patch 7.33b, which dropped less than 12 hours before the Major began.

From April 26 to 30, teams will be split into two groups of nine to face off in the group stage—with only six teams from each group moving on to the playoffs. Those playoffs will run from May 1 to 7 and feature meta-shaping Dota that may be built throughout the event because of how recent this new patch is. 

Patch 7.33 went live on April 20, reworking a majority of Dota’s heroes, items, and several key mechanics. It also expanded the map by 40 percent and shuffled several objectives around to new locations while also adding more. This was compounded by the release of 7.33b several days later on April 25, which made more adjustments.

That new patch feel should lead to a lot of experimentation and volatility throughout the Berlin Major, so here is an overview so you can keep up with all of the action—including the tournament format, live standings, and where to watch matches.

Dota 2 Berlin Major tournament format overview

18 teams will be separated into two groups of nine. Teams play against each other in a single round-robin format. All group stage matches are best of two. The top four seeded teams from each group will advance to the upper bracket of the playoffs. Fifth and sixth-place teams will start the playoff in the lower bracket while the remaining teams will be eliminated. The group stage will start on April 26 and end on April 30. Playoffs will begin on May 1 and end on May 7.

Dota 2 Lima Major prize pool and DPC points payout

Teams will be competing for a $500,000 prize pool and 2,700 DPC points at the Berlin Major. That is an increase from the Lima Major’s 1,900 DPC points due to how the season scales and gives out more points at each consecutive Major—meaning the Bali Major in July will offer even more. 

To earn any prize money or DPC points, participating rosters will have to at least finish seventh in the event. This is a chance for certain teams to almost guarantee a spot at TI12 depending on how many points they have already collected over the year.
