LCQ TI2022 Dota 2

The International 2022; Last Chance Qualifer Survival Guide

Dota 2 Cristy “Pandoradota2” Ramadani

The International 2022 is about to kick off with 12 teams competing in the Last Chance Qualifier for the last two spots at the main event. 

The pinnacle of all Dota 2 events of the year is finally happening. 

Twelve teams fell short of the highly coveted spot in The International 2022 group stage. But they were able to punch a ticket to head to Singapore for one final shot —the newly added Last Chance Qualifier.

Only two teams will survive the battle and advance to the group stage. 

The competition will begin with two groups of six teams each playing in a Round-robin, two-game series format for playoff seeding. No team will be eliminated in the group stage.

We are pretty hyped to get the ball rolling and begin the LCQ, which looks like a mini TI all on its own.
