The format for the Dota 2 Asia Championships 2017 regional qualifiers has been revealed, with teams playing through two GSL Group Stage Brackets in each regional qualifier in order to advance to the LAN finals.

Running between Feb. 3-Feb. 13, the eight teams competing in each qualifier will be divided into two groups of four teams. Teams will compete in a series of best-of-three matches in a double elimination group stage bracket, with the top two teams advancing to the next group stage. The advancing teams will then compete in another double elimination bracket in the second group stage, with the top team qualifying for DAC 2017 itself.

The LAN Finals of Dota 2 Asia Championships 2017 will take place from March 28 to April 4 in Shanghai, China.
