    Road to TI10: who's gonna make their mark on the new DPC?

    The DOTA Summit 11 starts Thursday, November 7, heralding the Dota Pro Circuit 2019/2020. Shortly after that, on November 16, the MDL Chengdu Major commences as the first Major of the new season. The tournaments bring several interesting matchups and mark a first test of strength for the teams competing.
    The big Goliath teams are still not entering the main stage. Last year's DPC champion Team Secret announced already weeks ago that they will not take part, the legendary ex-Team Liquid will join in before the next Major/Minor qualifiers only and the players from two times TI winner OG are still on an extended break.
    Can the rising stars stay the course?
    Three teams rose up at the recent ESL One Hamburg 2019 and DreamLeague Season 12: SEA's powerhouse TNC Predator, CIS' new hope Gambit Esports and the new squad of Alliance. They now have the chance to prove whether they are only one-hit wonders or if they can repeat their success stories.
    Despite some of the top teams not participating, the competition is still going to be way harder for them than at the past non-DPC events. The level of difficulty is going to increase as more tier 1 stacks enter the competition and their enemies will have learned much from their losses.
    The last chance to go to the Major
    The winner of the Dota Summit 11 is awarded the final spot at the Chengdu Major. Several big names such as Peter 'ppd' Dager, Saahil 'Universe' Arora, Quinn 'CCnC' Callahan, and Marc Polo Luis 'Raven' Fausto are fighting for the spot.
    Evil Geniuses without Sumail
    Evil Geniuses will play their first offline tournament with their new roster. The new additions Abed 'Abed' Yusop and Roman 'RAMZEs' Kushnarev already convinced at the Chengdu 2019: North America Qualifier, where EG had a nearly flawless run. They were only defeated on one map by Quincy Crew.
    Valve confirmed that the Outlanders Update will be released after the Chengdu Major. This patch will propably once again change the game significantly, which will serve for an interesting starting point for the next Major – the DreamLeague Season 13.
