The DOTA 2 International 2022, TI 11, is ready to start in Singapore after giving out the last two tickets in the Last Chance Qualifiers. Team Secret & Team Liquid, both teams from West Europe, will join the 18 squads that got their spots via DPC and Regionals.
After a tough road, Puppey, the captain of Secret, remains the only Player to assist every international. Additionally, the TI11 will visit South East Asia for the first time.
Singapore welcomes the best DOTA players in the world, and we can't think of a better place for the tournament. All teams will bring their complete roster as the small Asian Country granted visas for every Player. A big issue in DOTA tournaments the last two years.
These are the 20 teams qualified and our power ranking of all the squads invited to TI11.

The 20 teams from the six regions will be split into two groups of ten that will play Bo2 matches. The top four teams will proceed to the upper bracket. Pos 4-8 will play in the lower bracket. The bottom two teams will be eliminated from the competition.
These are the 20 teams divided by regions:
- Gaimin Gladiators
- Tundra Esports

- BetBoom Team
- Team Spirit
- Royal Never Give Up
- Team Aster
- Talon Esports
- BOOM Esports

With the victory of Secret and Liquid in the Last Chance Qualifiers, West Europe will be represented by five teams, the most from all regions.
DOTA 2 International 2022 Power Rankings
Tournaments like the DOTA 2 International are unpredictable, especially in the recent era, with teams from regions like South America and SEA teams closing the gap.
However, based on their roster and performance this year, these are the favorites to raise the Aegis in Singapore, and how we rank the other qualifying teams.
- PSG LGD (China)
- The most consistent team of the last years, they combine experience and discipline. And Ame is probably the best Carry player in competitive DOTA.
- But PSG LGD is known for losing in the grand Finals of TI, being runner-up in 2018 and 2021.
- Team Spirit (East Europe)
- They are the current champion.
- They had a tough start to the year, but they won the last DOTA Major in Arlington.
- Winning two TI in a row is a challenging goal. So far, only OG has managed to win two Aegis.
- OG (West Europe)
- Despite the team being renovated entirely, they follow the same philosophy that made them champions.
- They will have their full roster for the first time this year. As Misha & Chuvash secure their Visas
- Entity (West Europe)
- Their Fast Paced playstyle has proved effective in Big Stages, and now they have more experience.
- Team Aster (China)
- The second team from the Chinese region seems to be just one step from the big wins.
- TSM.FTX (NA)
- The best of the NA region. The team is a combination of young talent and experience. They were finalists in the Stockholm Major.
- Team Liquid & Team Secret (West Europe)
- Both teams went the extra mile to reach TI11. As a result, they enter the competition with great rhythm.
- Liquid & Secret has players who know what it is to win the Aegis and rarely miss finals.
- Thunder Awaken & Beastcoast (South America)
- Far gone are the times when South Americans were the weakest teams.
- Both teams' rosters have a lot of experience in big tournaments, and they are now stapled teams in Playoffs.
- Beetboom Team (East Europe)
- The team surprised everyone with an impressive run during the Regional Qualifiers, defeating Virtus Pro without conceding a single match.
Teams With Something to Prove
- Evil Geniuses (NA)
- The organization has seen better times, but nothing better than a TI to make a big comeback.
- Boom Esports (SEA)
- Boom Esports has been very consistent, dominating their region.
- The team even led the DPC at the beginning of the year. Are they ready for the next step?
- Tundra Esports (West Europe)
- Tundra plays great DOTA, but the results are not on their side. We would like to see them have better luck this time around.
- RNG (China)
- Royal Never Give Up on paper is the weakest of the Chinese teams, but in a region, with such high competition, they can't be discarded.
The Biggest Underdogs
- Soniqs, Fnatic, Hokori, Talon Esports, Gaimin Gladiators.
- We can tell these teams are already happy to be in the International, and we are not saying they can not win.
- But they have little to lose; therefore, they play as underdogs.
