North America has been a three-team region for dota 2 for more than a year now, with Evil Geniuses, TSM, and Quincy Crew all having an equal claim to the region’s throne. That led to all three facing off in a tiebreaker to decide which two would represent NA at the Stockholm Major at the end of the 2022 dota Pro Circuit’s Spring Tour.
All three of the top teams only lost one series throughout the entire regional league, with each of those coming against each other, meaning both of the region’s major slots would be decided in best-of-one tiebreakers.
EG was the first to secure their spot at the Major, taking a dominant 32-minute win over Quincy Crew where they never trailed beyond the opening minutes. They would go on to beat TSM even faster, taking NA’s top seed for the first time since the opening season of the 2021 DPC behind some excellent play across the board, but specifically from Arteezy and Abed.
