Dota 2 developer Valve Software announced on Sunday (22 May) that The International 11 (TI11), this year's iteration of the game's annual world championship tournament, will be held in Singapore in October.
Valve revealed the venue for TI11 during the grand finals of the ESL One Dota 2 Stockholm Major, the first international LAN tournament of the 2021-2022 Dota Pro Circuit (DPC) season.
T11's format will feature a much longer schedule, a total of 30 participating teams, and a new last chance qualifier.
Unlike past editions of TI, which lasted around 10 days, TI11 will take place across 23 days from 8 to 30 October with longer breaks in between the different stages of the tournament.
The biggest change to the TI format for TI11 will be the addition of a last chance qualifier, which will be separate from the main regional qualifiers and is similar to the Wildcard Stage last seen in TI5 and TI6.
