The long-awaited Team Matchmaking system in Dota 2 is finally available, and here’s everything you need to know about it.

In Dota 2, what is a team?

Teams have existed in Dota 2 for quite some time. Groups allow players to come together under a single flag, allowing them to compete against other teams in practice lobbies, leagues, tournaments, and now the “Team Matchmaking” system.

The “Community” page on the Dashboard allows users to create their Team. Each Team has six seats, five for players and one for the Team Manager/Owner/Administrator. If necessary, a Team Administrator can add himself to the playing roster at any time.

Players can add their logos, sponsor components, personal information, in-game banners, and crests to their teams, allowing them to be highly personalized. More information on how to customize your Team may be found here.

What is the Process of Making Team Matches?

The Team will be detected, and the group features will be called in whenever the game identifies five team members in the same lobby. Your Team’s information will be displayed in-game, and statistics from these matches will be collected. Teams will be rated in Team Matchmaking depending on their performance versus other Teams and their current standing.

Go to your ‘Play Tab’ and click on ‘Find A Team Match’ to sign up for a Team Matchmaking game. You’ll be able to either invite the rest of your Team to a party with a single click of a button, or you’ll be able to find the match after you’re all grouped up.

In Captain’s Mode, a team must have a minimum of five players to join up for a ranked match.

Users can view their Team Rankings on their Team Profile in the Community Option or the newly introduced “Team” tab on their Dota Profile.

Before a team to be ranked, they must play at least five games.
That’s all you need to know. Go your dudes together and get rolling.

The Stage of the International Group

In less than 24 hours, the Group Stage for The International 2021 will begin, with 18 teams competing for 16 slots in the Main Event. With a passage to the main stage on the line, two groups of nine teams will compete in a full round-robin—two games against each opponent in the group. In the Main Event, the top four teams from each group advance. The remaining four must compete in the loser’s bracket. Each group’s lowest-placed team will be eliminated from the competition. All units have worked hard to earn their position in this fight, and we wish them all the best.
