The spotlight remains on the remaining 9 spots yet to be determined, as teams continue their pursuit of DPC points to secure a coveted position at TI12. The list below will be updated as more teams qualify

1. Team Liquid

Team Liquid's roster:

  • Michael "miCKe" Vu

  • Michał "Nisha" Jankowski

  • Ludwig "zai" Wåhlberg

  • Samuel "Boxi" Svahn

  • Aydin "iNSaNiA" Sarkohi

Team Liquid became the first team to qualify for The International 2023 (TI12) after commanding performances in Tours 1 and 2 of the DPC 2023 Western Europe and runner-up finishes at The Lima Major 2023 and The Berlin Major 2023.

2. Gaimin Gladiators

Gaimin Gladiator's roster:

  • Anton "dyrachyo" Shkredov

  • Quinn "Quinn" Callahan

  • Marcus "Ace" Hoelgaard

  • Erik "tOfu" Engel

  • Melchior "Seleri" Hillenkamp

Perhaps the most dominant Dota 2 team in the world at the moment, with back to back wins at The Lima Major 2023 and The Berlin Major 2023, Gaimin Gladiators became the second team to grab an invite to TI12 with the conclusion of the DPC WEU 2023 Tour 3: Division I

3. Evil Geniuses

Evil Geniuses' roster:

  • Crhistian "Pakazs" Savina

  • Jean Pierre "Chris Luck" Salazar

  • Adrián "Wisper" Dobles

  • Farith "Matthew" Puente

  • Jose "Panda" Padilla

The South American powerhouse is perhaps the strongest team to ever emerge out of the region, and the team has consistently put forth impressive performances in the South American DPC Leagues as well as the Lima and Berlin Majors to become the third team to qualify for The International 2023.

4. Shopify Rebellion

Shopify Rebellion's roster:

  • Artour "Arteezy" Babaev

  • Abed "Abed" Yusop

  • Jonáš "SabeRLight-" Volek

  • Andreas "Cr1t-" Nielsen

  • Tal "Fly" Aizik

The North American stalwarts have done it again, this time under a new banner. With commanding performances in the North American DPC, and reasonably good performances in the Lima and Berlin Majors, the team cemented its place at The International 12.

5. Tundra Esports

Tundra Esports' roster:

  • Oliver "skiter" Lepko

  • Leon "Nine" Kirilin

  • Neta "33" Shapira

  • Martin "Saksa" Sazdov

  • Wu "Sneyking" Jingjun

The reigning champions will have a chance to defend the Aegis at The International 12. Although the team is yet to hit the highs it showcased at Singapore last year, Tundra has proven itself to still be formidable opponents against any team it encounters.

With Valve's silence regarding the implementation of Last Chance Qualifiers for The International 12, the significance of performing well in the DPC Tours has intensified.

The stakes are high, and teams are aware that their success in this crucial phase will directly impact their chances of securing a spot at The International 12. The Dota 2 community eagerly awaits the upcoming battles and anxiously follows the results, as teams strive to make their mark and earn their rightful place among the elite competitors at TI12.
