Majors are tournaments sponsored by Valve. They must have a prize pool of at least 500,000$ and will receive an additional 500,000$ prize pool from Valve on top of that. To be eligible to be a Major, the tournaments need to have at least one qualifier for each of the primary regions (NA, SA, SEA, CN, EU and CIS) and have a LAN finals component. The schedule of these Majors is managed by Valve.

Based on a teams performance, the total prize pool and the time of the year of these Majors, as well as the Minors, Valve will award the individual players on the teams with Qualifying Points for The International.

Roster restrictions[edit]

In order to qualify for Majors, professional teams must adhere to a set of rules that limit roster changes. This system was designed to create a stabler competitive scene by restricting frequent player trading. Detailed rules and team management can be found on the registration page.

  • In order to participate in a Majors tournament, players must be locked into a team.
  • Locked players cannot leave the team, or be kicked.
