Week 4 of the 2021 DPC Season 1: Upper Division concluded yesterday, February 14.
Team Secret, Virtus.pro and Natus Vincere have booked a spot in the first Major of the 2021 DPC Season 1.
We take a look at the points table of the Upper Division in all the six regions after the conclusion of the fourth week.

Week 4 (February 8-14) of the 2021 DPC Season 1: Upper Division became a decisive one as teams like Secret, Virtus.pro, Natus Vincere booked berths in the first Major of the season, ONE Esports Dota 2 Singapore Major 2021. We also witnessed that the 2021 DPC Season 1: Upper Division in the EU, SEA, and Chinese region is now highly competitive as almost every team can occupy the remaining Major slots. Though NA, SA, and CIS are still wide open, one can easily predict the teams’ final list in these regions that are going to make it to Singapore.

Before we head into week 5 in the 2021 DPC Season 1: Upper Division, let us look at what exactly panned out and where the teams stand in each region’s points table after the fourth week.

5. North America (NA)

Evil Geniuses are wreaking havoc in the NA DPC 2021 Season 1: Upper Division as they remain undefeated with five wins in five series at the end of the fourth week. Following them is another solid team, Quincy Crew, who has also been unbeaten with four wins in four series. Undying vs Sadboys was the most hyped match of the week, which ended in the former’s favor. As a result, with just a single loss against their name, Undying can surprise the NA Dota 2 fans if they pull off wins in their remaining series against 4 Zoomers and Quincy Crew.

6. South America (SA)

Beastcoast is the only team in all six regions of the 2021 DPC Season 1: Upper Division that have not lost even a single map. They have won all of their five series 2-0 and are looking strong for a first-place finish. Infamous, who was considered as a top contender to reach the Major, suffered back to back losses and are now at risk of getting relegated to the Lower Division. Since only two slots from the region are allocated for the Major and most teams can still occupy them, an intriguing week 5 awaits the SA Dota 2 fans.

Week five of the 2021 DPC Season 1: Upper Division is potentially set to be an exhilarating one as most teams are now in a do or die scenario to grab the remaining fifteen slots.
