posted by Smyke,
The DPC Winter Tour is right ahead! While Division II of the regional leagues are all set to kick off on 29 November, Division I comes with a different timeline. An overview on all participants of the Upper Division, the dates and Major seedings. The format:

Each Regional League features 8 teams in the Upper Division which are fighting for a prize pool of $205,000 USD and 690 DPC Points. The second division also features 8 teams each and a prize pool of $75,000 USD. The participants will face each other in a single round-robin format and all matches are played in a best-of-three. Depending on their performance at the end of each league, the teams will qualify for the upcoming Major, stay in the first division or get relegated for the next tour.
