From the six leagues, the SEA DPC stood out towards the end of the previous season as being one of the most competitive. Each team had its moments of excellence, but consistency lacked. As seven of eight teams in Division 1 have at least one player different from their previous rosters, it will be interesting to see which ones prove to be the best and most consistent for this upcoming season. T1 will be the only team to continue with the same roster for the DPC 2021-22.
