PGL Arlington Major 2022 is set to kick off tomorrow, August 4th with 17 teams competing for the lion's share of the $500,000 and 4,570 DPC points. 

Teams that were able to clinch a spot at the PGL Arlington Major have a chance at securing a hefty amount of DPC points that will earn them a spot at The International. 

Only four teams have secured their TI invite —Thunder Awaken, PSG.LGD, TSM.FTX, and OG. That means of the 17 teams participating, 14 of them are all jockeying for at least the top 8 or higher to earn their place at TI. When the dust settles, only eight (more) teams will have clinched a spot at TI. 

This means every.single.victory (and loss) is crucial. 

Things kick off tomorrow, August 4th with four series from group A at 17:00 CEST: 

Royal Never Give UpvsOutsiders
SoniqsvsTeam Liquid
Talon EsportsvsPSG.LGD
