Earlier in April, the Dota Pro Circuit (DPC) Season 1 came to a thrilling conclusion as Chinese juggernauts Invictus Gaming pulled off an awesome comeback to take down Evil Geniuses in the Singapore Major finals. With the first DPC season of 2021 now behind us, we look towards the second season, which begins this week.
The European region is the biggest, and arguably the most interesting of the DPC reasons. It’s also time-friendly for South African Dota 2 esports fans to watch. With that in mind, here’s what you need to know about the DreamLeague Season 15 DPC 2021 Season 2.

The DreamLeague Season 15 EU DPC Season 2 format is quite easy to understand. Basically, all teams play each other once, in a best-of-three round-robin league. At the end of the season, they are ranked depending on their points.
A total of 16 teams will compete in the DreamLeague Season 15 DPC EU Season 2 league, eight in the Upper Division, and eight in the Lower Division. The Upper Division is where we will see the top teams in the world compete.
