DPC 2021-22 Season Tour 3; The final countdown
The DPC 2021-22 Season Tour 3 enters into the 6th and final week of league play for the Dota 2 year.
The last week of the DPC 2021-22 Season league play is upon us, signaling the final countdown for DPC points, The International invites, and the last Major of the year attendees.
Here's how things look and what to watch this last week.
There are two more slots available for the region which look like they will belong to Entity Gaming and Team Liquid. However, don't count Team Secret out just yet. A last week's win could force tie-breakers and give them the opening they need.
The Eastern European region has been granted three slots for the Arlington Major next month. NAVI, Outsiders, and Team Spirit are currently locked into the first three slots tied with 5:1 series wins.
However, BetBoom, formerly known as Winstrike, isn't out of contention yet. They will take on Team Spirit and a victory over the TI championship team would be a big win for them.

There are three more slots available for the region at it is an incredibly tight race to the finish. Team Aster and Xtreme Gaming are next in line tied in 2nd place with 4:2 and 4:3 series wins respectively.
At this point, it seems like anything goes and this week will be a nail-biter for Chinese teams and fans alike.

BOOM Esports have already secured their place at the second Major of the season. At ESL One Stockholm Major 2022 they ended up in 9-12th place.
The region has two more slots up for grabs. Talon Esports and Fnatic are hoping to punch their tickets as they are the next two in line. However, RSG is right on their tails and T1 is likely to not go down without a fight.
With only two tickets available to the Arlington Major in their homeland, North American teams are feeling the mounting pressure to lock in one of those spots.
Surprisingly for many fans, TSM FTX will NOT be making an appearance at the event. That means that one of the two slots is being highly contested by a new challenger —Nouns — who have made an impressive appearance this tour.
Things will come down to the very last official series on the schedule —between EG and Quincy Crew.
Heading south of North America both beastcoast and Thunder Awaken are tied for first place with a 5:1 series record. Not many would be surprised to see these two teams make another appearance at the Major, but Infamous isn't ready to give up their dreams. A win for them will put them into tie-breakers with the loser of the final series which takes place between beastcoast and TA.
Don't forget that there will potentially be plenty of thrilling tie-breaker series to catch.
Keep your eye on the matchticker schedule for those.
