Evil Geniuses are first to qualify for The International 10
Evil Geniuses became the first team to lock in a spot at The International 10 after a clean 2-0 victory over Undying last night in the NA Dota Pro Circuit league.
Evil Geniuses’spotless performance in the previous league season, the runner up placement at the ONE Esports Singapore Major, along with their the latest win from last night, which secures them a top three finish in the current NA league season, nets the team a total of 1150 DPC points.
Thus, Evil Geniuses sit currently at the top of DPC rankings across all regions. They are also tied for first place in the current NA DPC league season with a 5-0 overall series score. The deciding series in NA in regards to a ticket to the second Major of the year will be held on May 16, between Evil Geniuses and Quincy Crew, who are also 5-0 in the standings.
Regardless of the final league results, EG will represent NA at TI 10. Other teams most likely to secure a spot at TI 10, even before the second Major of the year unfolds, are the ONE Esports Singapore Major champions, Invictus Gaming, Virtus.pro, who took down yesterday Team Spirit to secure another first place finish in the Eastern Europe DPC league, and Team Secret.
While there is no information as of yet about the second Major of the 2021 Dota Pro Circuit, The International 10 was confirmed by Valve earlier this week to be hosted in Stockholm, Sweden between August 5-15 with $40,018,195 on the line.
