Secret Heen talks about his criticism of the 2021 DPC format

An virtually related model of the present DPC system was first revealed in February 2020 however sadly, due to the onset of the continued pandemic, the system couldn’t be put into place. It was solely in January 2021 when Valve introduced again a refurbished model of the 2020 DPC system and kickstarted 2021 with the Regional Leagues. 

Crew Secret’s coach, Heen, has at all times been a critic of this technique – whether or not it’s the 2020 or the 2021 model. In accordance with him, the one factor that the present system accomplishes is that every area can be virtually assured to have a consultant at TI. It’s because there may be little or no distinction between the variety of DPC factors awarded on the Regional Leagues and the Majors.

Here’s what else he believes are the issues with the present system.

  • DPC factors are laborious to accumulate (high 5 in a area’s Higher Division and high eight at a Main obtain DPC factors solely). Combining this with the rise within the variety of good groups and the lower within the variety of TI qualification tournaments, groups are below a variety of strain.
  • Moreover, as some huge cash is focused on TI this 12 months, the highway to the world championship has turn out to be “much less constant.” The Majors account for “actually 1-2% of the TI prize pool” which Heen believes will not be wholesome. Additionally, the gamers who get kicked by a crew haven’t any means out besides to exchange a participant in one other “succesful crew.” 
  • Factors distribution system, particularly on the Main, will not be rewarding for a lot of groups as solely the highest eight get their share of prize cash and factors. The remainder go house empty-handed. Although the prize pool is usually believed to be evenly spaced out to assist the tier 2-Three scene, the prize pool as a complete has been decreased by Valve. That is made worse by the truth that no Main-level non-Valve tournaments have taken place or introduced as of now.
  • “The present system of backside 2 Higher Division groups having to surrender their slots to the highest 2 Decrease Division groups remains to be silly. We’re within the enterprise of competitors. Earn your spot like everybody else.”
  • Decrease Bracket R1 ought to cease being BO1. As evident from the Singapore Main (the place the Decrease Bracket R1 was BO3), it takes only one extra day to finish the spherical. 

Suggesting a attainable resolution, Heen said that he needs each area to have extra slots if Valve goes to proceed having the present format. “No logistics points will emerge in internet hosting a event with so many groups because the Battle Move reportedly gave Valve “$160+ million US {dollars},” he added.’s coach, Daniel “ImmortalFaith” Moza, added one other concern to Heen’s listing as he talked about the excessive variety of video games that some groups (particularly the wild card ones) must play.
