Valve DPC Ruling: Fnatic qualify for TI11 ahead of Outsiders

12:40 PM August 16, 2022

Southeast Asian Dota 2 team Fnatic has qualified for The International 11 via Dota Pro Circuit points in a dramatic turn of events. The TI11 direct invites list from Liquipedia included Russian team Outsiders as part of the 12 teams. However, the official Dota 2 DPC website reflects that Fnatic was the last team that made it to the final list of teams receiving a TI11 direct invite.

Liquipedia showed the 12 teams qualifying via DPC points that included Outsiders with 1020.05 DPC points, with Fnatic sitting in the 13th spot with 1020 DPC points. The Dota 2 official website reflected that Fnatic got in the top 12 with 1020 points, while Outsider was out of the list with 1019 points.

Dota fans took their confusion to Twitter and discussed the differences between both sites. The official Dota 2 Twitter account would eventually declare that their website had the official results. 


The uproar started when Dota 2 personality Jorien “Sheever” van der Heijden tweeted two photos that showed discrepancies between the point calculations from Liquipedia and the official Dota 2 website.


This change makes Fnatic the second SEA team to qualify for TI11 via DPC points, next to BOOM Esports. Russian team Outsiders will have to compete and win the regional qualifiers if they wish to make it into TI11.
