Entit recently experienced a disappointing exit from DreamLeague Season 21. The team entered DreamLeague Season 21 with high hopes and a promising performance that had garnered them a Top 6 spot, securing a respectable $57,500 in prize money. Despite falling short of their ultimate goal, their journey through the tournament was marked by a series of unfortunate events that could have broken their spirit.

However, amidst the setbacks and challenges, a message of resilience and determination shines through, thanks to their carry player, Alimzhan "watson" Islambekov.

A series of unfortunate events for Entity

One of the biggest challenges that Entity faced was the fact that they were forced to play with two substitutions. The team's mid-laner, Daniel "Stormstormer" Schoetzau, was unable to compete due to his brother's wedding falling on the same day as the elimination game. As a result, the team had to bring in stand-in mid laner Malr1ne. The team's offlaner, Kim "Gabbi" Santos, was also unavailable since he was busy securing a visa for The International 2023 (TI12). He was unable to play from Indonesia due to high packet loss and latency.

In a twist of fate, even the team's carry player, watson, found himself navigating challenging circumstances. As he was processing his visa for the United States, he had to participate in the tournament from a Computer Cafe instead of their usual bootcamp. These unexpected hurdles would have been enough to demoralize most teams, but Entity persevered.

Watson’s Message to Entity Fans

Following their elimination, watson took to Telegram to share his thoughts on the team's performance and to express his gratitude to the stand-in players.

In a message filled with positivity, watson said, "We lose 0-2 and are relegated from the Dream League. Top 6 is, of course, not the result we wanted, but considering that we played with substitutions and I played from the a internet cafe since I was getting a visa, it will work. Thanks to Malrin and Ammar for standing in, it was a lot of fun and the games turned out great! As soon as I receive my passport, I will immediately go to the bootcamp, and we will prepare for The International 2023, cheer for Entity!"

Entity's exit from DreamLeague Season 21 might be seen as a setback, but it is only a chapter in their esports journey. With the unwavering spirit displayed by watson and the entire team, Entity has proven that they are a force to be reckoned with. As they continue to train and prepare for The International 12, fans can expect to see this resilient team rise to the occasion and make their mark on the global Dota 2 stage.
