Gorgc reveals the prices of DPC slots
During a livestream covering the open qualifiers of the Western European Dota Pro Circuit (WEU DPC), Janne "Gorgc'' Stefanovski told Neta “33” Shapira that he originally wanted to sell his team’s spot in the second division of the upcoming DPC regional league. However, he abandoned the idea of selling the slot upon hearing the creation of the Old G stack featuring the trio of Topias "Topson" Taavitsainen, Johan "N0tail" Sundstein and Sebastian "Ceb" Debs.
33 then proceeded to ask Gorgc about the prices of a DPC slot in the second division. While Gorgc was hesitant to tell him at first due to possible non-disclosure agreements with tournament organizers, he then revealed that a DPC slot in the second division can cost between $10K USD to $20K USD depending on the team that is open to negotiations.
“I can say it’s somewhere between $10K USD to $20K USD depending on the team that is open to selling their spot in the division. Just straight off, the minimum would be $10K USD.”
33 then told Gorgc that Eastern European (EEU) teams are selling their Division I slots for around $30K USD. However, Gorgc noted that Division I teams would usually sell their slot for a higher price.
“I heard from the EEU region that teams are selling their Division I slots for $30K USD, which is weird since I assumed that Division I slot prices are usually between $60K USD to $100K USD”. said 33 when telling Gorgc about the DPC slot prices in the EEU region.
As of late, many teams have bought or sold their places within the DPC for various reasons. It seems like Valve has not imposed any restrictions on teams selling or purchasing a spot in their DPC regional leagues.
