Only SIX teams receive direct invite to TI6.
Valve wasted absolutely no time and has released the direct invites for TI6 just minutes after OG was crowned the winner of ESL One Frankfurt.
Valve has significantly reduced the number of direct invites for the upcoming TI6. At TI4 – 11 teams received direct invites, and last year 10 teams were fortunate enough to receive the golden ticket. However, only a handful of teams are sure of a place at TI6.
For TI6 only six teams were directly invited which means the Regional Qualifiers are going to be even more cut-throat. Evil Geniuses will be joined by the likes of Complexity and Digital Chaos should they reach the US Regionals, while Team Secret will be pitted against Alliance, Virtus Pro and Vega Squadron if they make it through the EU Open Qualifiers.For the full list of competing teams in the Regional Qualifiers as well as more information on the Open Qualifiers head to the official Dota2 page.
