The first season of the Dota Pro Circuit 2021 is over for all regions but China. Here's what happened in the tiebreakers and who managed to earn a spot in the Singapore Major.

The Dota Pro Circuit 2021 is halfway through, with the first season already in the past. The only exception to that is China, as the region is lagging two weeks behind, due to the Lunar New Year celebrations. Everyone else can finally take a well-deserved break and prepare for the Singapore Major. At least those who made it.

DPC 2021 Tiebreaker Results: Europe

In Europe, there was a tie between not two, but three teams for fourth place - OG, Team Liquid, and Tundra Esports (mudgolems). After two rounds of Bo1 round-robin, Team Liquid were the team to continue forward. Tundra Esports and the two-time TI champions OG will remain in the Upper Division for Season 2, but we won't see them in the first major of 2021.

DPC 2021 Tiebreaker Results: CIS

In the CIS, there was a double tiebreaker. One to decide who goes to the Singapore Major Wildcard stage and one to make it clear which team will be dropping to the Lower Division. In the latter, Team Unique prevailed over Team Empire and saved their spot in the Upper Division. Empire will be going into the lower one in the second season.

In the meantime, AS Monaco Gambit earned a spot at the upcoming major by defeating Team Spirit.

DPC 2021 Tiebreaker Results: SEA

In Southeast Asia, T1 and Neon Esports had to decide which team will get the privilege of going directly into the major group stage. T1 took game one in the Bo3 series, but Neon ended up doing a reverse sweep on their opponents. With that, T1 are left in the wildcard stage, while Neon will advance to the groups of the Singapore Major.

DPC 2021 Tiebreaker Results: North America

Speaking of tiebreakers, North America was the region that had the most teams involved. Once, again a double tiebreaker ,but with three teams in each. Evil Geniuses, Quincy Crew and Undying were competing at the very top. EG took first place, QC second and Undying were left at third, this translates to EG going directly into the major playoffs, QC entering the group stage, and Undying left as the wildcard.

The second tiebreaker was between S A D B O Y S, Black N Yellow, and A-Team. One of them had to descend into the Lower Division and it ended up being A-Team. This was the team in which Jimmy "DeMoN" Ho played before getting suspended by Beyond the Summit.

DPC 2021 Tiebreaker Results: South America

Just kidding, South America was the only region with no tiebreakers! Everything was settled in the regular season.
