It was introduced in 2017 by the game's developer, Valve Corporation, to determine which teams are eligible to obtain a direct invitation to The International, the premier tournament for the game annually produced by them.The DPC replaced the former Dota Major Championship series (2015C2016), which was criticized due to Valve's non-transparent and unpredictable nature for handing out International invitations.
Chongqing is the top destination for video gamers in China and the home of the top teams. It is the city attracted the most  of younger tourists in all Chinese cities.
