The first DPC event of the 2019-2020 season kicks off tomorrow as the Summit 11 Minor begins in Los Angeles, California.

The last DPC event held in North America (aside from TI8 held in Canada) was Captain's Draft 4.0 held in January 2018 in Washington, DC and Summit 8 held in Los Angeles just before that in December 2017. Both events were Minors and Valve's last events held in the United States. 

Now BTS has come to bring the DPC back to NA soil. And to kick off the DPC 2019-2020 season no less.

Per Valve DPC rules, a team that removes a player after securing a slot at a minor or a major, will have a 20% deduction to the points obtained during that event in addition to the normal penalty.

The normal penalty is a 40% penalty on points earned from that tournament.

*Since the minor winner also gets to participate in the major, they will only get points for the event in which they placed better (e.g: If they place last in the major, they will only get 140 points for winning the minor. If they place 8th instead, they'd get the 450 points for the major but not the 140 points from the minor)

Summit 11 Minor

Between November 7-10th, eight teams determined via qualifiers will battle it out in Los Angeles, California for the lion's share of the $300,000 prize pool and 660 DPC points as well as the highly coveted spot at the MDL Chengdu Major taking place in Chengdu, Sichuan on November 16-24th.
