The purpose of the ranking system:
DotA is a developing e-sport and in its current form does not have a dedicated system to measure team performance over the long term. The Dust-Off World Rankings system is meant to fill this gap. The ranking is used to gauge the consistency of participating teams in their events and may be utilized in the future to seed events.
How the ranking system works:
All teams that compete in an approved live (i.e. LAN) gaming event will be ranked in the Dust-Off World Rankings. Points are awarded to a team for their final placing in an event.
Event Ranking Criteria
A Event: An international event including players from all three major regions (Americas, Asian/Pacific, and Europe) on par with a “World Championship” event (e.g. ESWC, WCG). Points awarded will be as follows: 1st 1000, 2nd 750, 3rd 500, 4th 250, 5/6th 100, 7/8th 50, 9th-16th 25 Points.
B Event: An event with international representation from two or three of the major regions, but limited participation due to worldwide format constraints or open registration (e.g. Fire & Ice, Dreamhack): 1st 500, 2nd 250, 3rd 100, 4th 50, 5th-8th 25.
C Event: An event with strong regional participation, but lack significant presence from outside regions. (e.g. ECG, Pan-Am Games, Pan-Asia Games): 1st 150, 2nd 75, 3rd 25.
Dust-Off reserves the rights to change this ranking system as necessary to accommodate the changing factors in e-Sports.
