Gaimin Gladiators have been dominating the tournament so far, winning all of its games and securing a place in the grand finals, while 9Pandas and Team Liquid are trailing just behind. In between the games, hosts Jake "SirActionSlacks" Kanner and Neal "Tsunami" Khandheria often interact with fans, and one couple's special moment stole the show.

A Surprise Proposal at The Berlin Major

During one of the breaks in the tournament, hosts SirActionSlacks and Tsunami were conducting their usual crowd interviews when one couple's interview took an unexpected turn. The man, a passionate Dota 2 fan, took the opportunity to propose to his girlfriend live on camera. The crowd erupted into cheers and the moment was captured on the big screen for all to see.

According to the couple, both of them met 8 years ago in a pub game. The proposal was a heartwarming and unforgettable moment for the couple and the Dota 2 community at the Berlin Major 2023. The special moment between the couple added a touch of romance to the already exciting and competitive atmosphere at the tournament.

After the video of the proposal went viral on Reddit, the fiance decided to respond to fans' comments and questions about their special moment. She posted a comment on the thread inviting people to ask her anything about the proposal. This sparked a flurry of activity, with many Reddit users congratulating the couple and asking questions about how the proposal came to be. One user asked whether the proposal was planned or a complete surprise, to which the fiance replied that she had "absolutely no clue." Many other users on the threat congratulated the couple for their happy moments and wished them happiness going forward.

The Berlin Major Finals 

Apart from the unexpected surprise at the Berlin Major, the lower bracket finals and grand finals are set to take place on 7th May, with the three remaining teams vying for the championship. The lower bracket finals will first take place between Team Liquid and 9Pandas, where Liquid has had an impressive lower bracket run and is looking to continue its run by beating the EEU powerhouse 9Pandas.

The winner of the lower bracket finals game will meet Gaimin Gladiators in the grand finals in a best-of-five series to win the championship and a lion’s share of the $500,000 USD prize pool and 2700 Dota Pro Circuit (DPC) points.

While the Berlin Major 2023 has been a showcase of high-level Dota 2 matches and intense competition, the proposal served as a heartwarming reminder of the emotional connections that the game can create. The major is almost at its conclusion with the upcoming lower bracket finals and grand finals. Fans will be excited to see whether it will be a repeat of the Lima Major 2023 with Liquid vs Gaimin Gladiators in the grand finals or whether EEU team 9Pandas can cause an upset.
