The qualifier for The Shanghai Major 2016 can be called as the main Dota 2 event of January. Ten teams in each of four regions will be clearing up who deserves to take part in the major tournament, and who needs to work on himself. 


Tournament Policy

In total in the closed qualifiers there will be ten teams — eight ones have got a direct invitation from the organizers, and two more have got through the open qualifiers. The qualifying stage itself will be divided into two stages — a group stage and play-off. In the group stage all teams will be divided into two groups of five teams. A format of matches will be best-of-two, at that a team gets 2 points for a win, one point for a draw and gets nothing for a loss. Two teams from each group will reach the next stage. The play-off stage will run in the Olympic system with a elimination after two losses. Both participants of the grand final will get an invitation to the tournament.
