With many big teams playing in the Regional Qualifiers, there is going to be plenty of action in the months leading up to TI. Here’s a look at what details were revealed by Valve and how the community reacted to it.

The community had quite a few things to say about the distribution of slots at the main event especially with NA getting 3 spots.
 


While many members of the Dota community including fans, players, personalities and talent felt that CIS deserves one more spot and NA one less, it's not entirely untrue that after the longest time, the NA qualifiers look more stacked than ever with Complexity, EG, Immortals, Optic and VG.J Storm all in the running.
