After the success of the team at the Kuala Lumpur Major 2018 on Malaysian soil, this time the second major event will begin its qualification round.
This time, Chinese soil, in the city of Chongqing, will be the second major title as well as the title. With the name Chongqing Major 2018, 16 teams will compete for a total prize pool of US $ 1,000,000.
This event is the result of a collaboration from Valve with StarLadder and ImbaTV. This event is also an official event, but it gives DPC points that determine the slot to The International 9 in Shanghai.
The 2018 Chongqing Major will take place on 19-27 January 2018. However, this time, Valve announced the group stage division ranks for the main qualifying phase for the 2018 Chongqing Major.
No doubt, many teams have become the center of attention. Maybe some names are able to generate a sense of admiration, for example two names that have recently returned to the competitive stage, OG and Team Liquid.
However, for the China region, qualification is still being carried out for the 4 teams that will fill the group stage. Some old names are predicted to return to fill the empty slots for the Chongqing stage.
Dota Pro Circuit Standings Competition
Virtus.pro’s victory is certainly a new milestone for the teams competing in the 2018 Chongqing Major. The reason is that the major events present more DPC totals than minor titles.
For example, Tigers only won 120 points after winning the DreamLeague Minor Season 10. While Virtus.pro immediately received 4,950 points.
However, this is felt to be commensurate with the performance and the more difficult opponents at the major level. The reason is, Virtus.pro must beat a team that appears with a charming performance, Team Secret.
In addition, the standings were also filled by one of the SEA representatives, TNC Predator with 900 points. The event in Southeast Asia actually lacked one figure, namely Mineski, who was less prominent than last year.
For group B, Indonesia at least received attention after the presence of the BOOM ID team. The bitters are, this black wolf fleet will entertain the former player, Muhammad “InYourdreaM” Rizky who defends the Tigers.
They will also face Fnatic who appear quite stable even with rooster new. There is also a force of SEA who has been sleeping for a long time, WG.Unity into the realm of SEA who appears through the qualification route.

For the European region, there are also many surprises that have been waiting for a long time, namely the participation of OG and Team Liquid.
Team Liquid itself had competed in the DreamLeague Season 10 qualifiers, but decided to leave with quite a controversial moment.
In addition, OG became a byword after the midlaner, Anathan “Ana” Pham decided to vacuum for the second time. The Australian national player decided to vacuum for internal reasons.
So, can OG and Team Liquid overtake the fight for DPC points at the Chongqing Major 2018? Or is it a bear from Russia who has re-established their position in the DPC standings?
