TI11 Last Chance Qualifier: All Teams and more details
The final qualifier for TI11 is set to happen on October 8th. From household names to Lower Division underdogs, here are all qualified teams that made it to the Last Chance Qualifier.
Following the conclusion of TI11 Regional Qualifiers, we take one final step towards the biggest Dota 2 tournament of the year. The Last Chance Qualifier (LCQ) is the final tournament that determines the final participants of TI11. With only two TI11 slots left, the LCQ is set to be a bloodbath.
So far, 18 teams have officially qualified for TI11. Twelve teams comprising the strongest, most consistent teams throughout the Dota Pro Circuit (DPC) earned Direct Invites. Six more teams made it through the brutal TI11 Regional Qualifiers. And those who fell short just slightly during the qualifiers will have another chance to grab a TI slot.
Twelve teams, two slots
For returning or new fans, the concept of LCQ in the Dota 2 pro circuit might be foreign. This system is introduced for this year’s DPC and it allows for more teams to play at TI11. It also gives an edge for teams in the more competitive regions to qualify – they tend to be buried under the powerhouses even though they might be just as good for TI.
Who qualifies for the LCQ?
From every region’s TI11 qualifier, teams that placed 2nd and 3rd qualify for the TI11 LCQ. A total of twelve teams across all competitive regions will clash for the two remaining slots at TI11. The range of teams is incredibly wide. From legendary household names to Lower Division underdogs, we are set to witness an unpredictable qualifier.
Here are all the teams that will compete in the LCQ:
- nouns [NA]
- Wildcard Gaming [NA]
- Infamous [SA]
- Tempest [SA]
- Team Secret [WEU]
- Team Liquid [WEU]
- Outsiders [EEU]
- NAVI [EEU]
- Xtreme Gaming [CN]

LCQ to take place live in Singapore
The qualifier itself is already exciting, but fans are also granted a live setting. The LCQ will operate in a LAN event with the twelve teams competing in Singapore from October 8th – 12th. TI11 begins shortly after on October 15th, which means those that qualify through LCQ will have an insanely short break in between.
Unfortunately, we might not see Dota 2 talents on-site during the LCQ. This information is not announced anywhere officially, however, sources have revealed that hosts and casters are to broadcast remotely.
