What is the Dota 2 Major League?
Each division contains a certain amount of groups. The higher the division, the less groups it has. Each group contains a total of 8 teams, and during a season all teams play against each other. The number of participating teams is unlimited.
Newcomers will be placed in the Starter division, where the groups are distributed by countries. There you will face teams that are part of your country, making it a more national competition. As the seasons run by, we may also have country groups in the higher divisions, depending on the amount of teams we will have for those countries.
In the first season, we will be running a Pre-Season Qualifier where everyone can join. At the end of the Pre-Season Qualifier, we will split the teams by groups on a round-robin distribution. The higher your position in the Pre-Season Qualifier, the better the division you will be joining.
