Dota 2 developer and esports event organizer Valve has announced the TOP-12 teams that scored the most DPС points and also qualified for The International 2022.
According to the Valve count, the tournament passes:
- Team Spirit
- Team Aster
- Thunder Awaken
- BOOM Esports
- Tundra Esports
- Gaimin Gladiators
- Evil Geniuses
Valve's list provoked a scandal in the esport community. It is said that according to the calculation of Liquipedia, which published its own earlier, the Russian team Outsiders got into the TOP-12. Outsiders are ahead of Fnatic, according to Liqipedia's tally.
There was a heated discussion about the methods of counting. Valve remained unmoved. They called the calculation of Liquipedia unofficial and did not change their minds.
