Three more teams have earned a spot in the OGA Dota PIT Minor coming up in just over two weeks. 

China was granted two OGA Dota PIT Minor slots for the region. As a result, the teams went all out in a double elimination format, giving all teams two chances to claim their place. 

RNG and EHOME both came into the qualifiers with a strong presence and focus. Running through the upper brackets they outplayed and outlasted their opponents until the upper bracket finals where they then went head to head. As expected, things were heated and went to a full three-game series to determine the first winner. In the end, it was RNG that came out ahead and secured the first slot. 

After being knocked down into the lower bracket finals, EHOME rose up to the challenge and took on Newbee with a 2:0 dominant sweep. Their victory was rewarded with the second spot for the Minor. 

Both RNG and EHOME have had multiple appearances at DPC events this season and are looking to make enough waves to keep climbing the DPC ladder. 

South America on the other hand, had to go all out in a single elimination bracket with all of their hopes on the line from the start. Pacific eSports, a mix of various lesser known players from different countries in the region came out in full force. They swept through SG esports and then Team X before besting Thunder Predator in a reverse sweep. 

This will be the team's first DPC event of the season.
