Teams' seeding in the AM League
—  Teams will be divided into rounds according to their MMR.  
—  How the average MMR is formed can be read here.
—  The purpose of this distribution - new players can start against teams of their level in the first round, while more experienced ones join during the tournament against the equivalent level of teams.
—  A note for participants. Calibrate your MMR to have the average team rating relevant.
—  Note for experienced teams. Do not enter the rounds against beginners, which will obviously be difficult to play against you (and such games will hit them in motivation).
— Teams that have won Ladder Points last season are eligible to play in a round above their MMR (they are eligible, but can optionally start at their own level).

Round 1 - For the teams with MMR below 3200
Round 2 - For the teams with MMR below 3500
Round 3 - For the teams with MMR below 3800
Round 4 - For the teams with MMR below 4200
Round 5 - For the teams with MMR below 4600
Round 6 - For the teams with MMR below 5000
Round 7 - For the teams with MMR below 5500
Round 8 - For the teams with MMR above 5500

 

Motivation for teamless players and for beginners:
— Teams will start the league with games against rivals about their level.
—  In the case of leaving the AM League, the team moves to the Junior League, where the level of opponents corresponds to the participants of the previous round
— Unlike other major tournaments and qualifiers, the selection of opponents will be more balanced and may allow players to: gain the necessary experience; have more fun; morally get stronger for tournament games; continue your cybersport career and reach a new level for yourself
— For the first time in the history of competitive Dota, the chance for advancement in a higher stage significantly increases 
— This is the best reason to gather a team or join an already formed one. This is an opportunity for growth and the emergence of new ambitions.
 
Motivation for the experienced players:
— 2-3 games per day with worthy rivals. Good opportunity to practice strategies and game aspects. 
— Teams with high MMR play less rounds, matches.
— A massive number of participants receive invites to the $2.000 Pro League (Раунд 2 из 5) (турнир стартует сразу после финалов AM).
