Alliance's Dota 2 Roster Heads to Serbian Bootcamp to Change DPC Fortunes
Finding itself on the verge of relegation to Division 2 in the Dota Pro Circuit (DPC), the Alliance Dota 2 roster has decided to head to a bootcamp in Serbia in hopes to turn its fortunes around. Jonathan "Loda" Berg, Alliance's CEO and co-owner commented in a video on the organization's Twitter handle that the DPC Western Europe (WEU) 2021-22 Tour 1: Division 1 had been challenging for the Dota 2 team to date, but the team was going to give its all while at the Serbian bootcamp. Currently, Alliance has one win after five DPC series, and it still has two more series to play.

“Me and the Dota 2 team are going to Serbia. We’re going because the DPC has been tough. But we are going to go there to do our hardest. We are going to be tougher. We are going to come back and really do our all for these two games vs OG and then Liquid,” said Loda on the reason for a bootcamp in Serbia.
The Alliance Dota 2 roster has been playing the DPC from the organization's bootcamp in Sweden so far. In the video, Loda said he knew someone in Serbia who could assist them a great deal.
Alliance had added three new players prior to the DPC 2021-22 season's start, but performances have been lackluster so far. The team has been unable to hold its own against its opponents, whether it comes to individual play or teamfight execution. Alliance's losses in the four series it has played so far have all come by a 2-0 score, and it has displayed little resistance in most of these games. The team has won only one series so far, against COOLGUYS, the only team below them on the points table and one that has yet to claim a single series win.
Alliance's chances of making it to the Major are virtually non-existent. All that the team has left to play for is remaining in Division 1 and to maintain that the team ideally has to win both of the remaining series against OG and Team Liquid. The WEU league has seen OG and Team Liquid as two of the strongest teams so far, which in turn entails a daunting challenge for Alliance. The team would be hoping that Serbia truly brings a change to its fortunes.
