2021 DPC Season: Points and Standings of SEA Teams
- Fnatic, Neon Esports, T1, BOOM Esports and TNC Predator are the five SEA teams who have earned DPC points until now.
- While Fnatic, Neon Esports and T1 will be seen in action from March 27 when the Singapore Major begins, TNC Predator and BOOM Esports begin their DPC Season 2 run on April 13.
- Here is a look at the Pro Circuit points and placement of each of these five teams in the DPC standings.
The 2021 DPC Season 1’s conclusion in the SEA region means that teams who have secured the top five slots in the Upper Division have been awarded their share of DPC points. While initially a total of 1150 Pro Circuit points were shared between the top five teams of Fnatic, Neon Esports, T1, TNC Predator and BOOM Esports, roster changes for some of these teams have resulted in a reduction in these points. With only the top 12 teams in terms of DPC points receiving a direct invite to TI10, let us take a look at the points and ranking of these five SEA teams.
DPC points and rankings of SEA Teams
- Points are earned by the top five teams playing in the Upper Division of the Regional Leagues as well as the top eight teams playing in the Majors.
- Teams can drop players from the end of the league up until the Tuesday after the Major at 12PM PST, receiving a 15% penalty to their points up to that point.
- A team that removes a player after securing a slot at a major, will have a 20% deduction to the points obtained during that event in addition to the normal penalty.
