- CIS and South America - 23rd to 26th June
- North America and Southeast Asia - 30th June to 3rd July
- China and Europe - 7th to 10th July
These regional qualifiers will all be online tournaments. At the time of writing, the list of teams has not been revealed, as it depends on what happens at the WePlay AniMajor.
For many Dota 2 esports fans, eyes will be on OG, the two-time winning TI squad which failed to qualify for both Majors during the 2021 DPC season. With the return of the legendary Ana to their squad, it will be exciting to see if OG can make it through the European regional qualifier and defend their title at The International 10.
