Six teams, on the other hand, won the The International 11 ticket as the winner of their region in the regional qualifiers. These regions were North America, South America, Western Europe, Easter Europe, China and Southeast Asia.
The final two teams will be determined by the currently playing Last Chance Qualifier. Teams that finished second and third in their region's qualifiers compete in the Last Chance Qualifier.
