Team Liquid Virtually Secures a Spot at The International 2023
Team Liquid has had an impressive run in the Dota Pro Circuit (DPC) this year, coming first in both DPC Western Europe (WEU) 2023 Tour 1 and 2, and finishing second in both the Lima Major and DreamLeague Season 19. The team has accumulated a staggering 1250 DPC points, putting them in the top spot for DPC rankings. With a minimum of 200 DPC points secured from a top-eight finish at the Berlin Major, Team Liquid is looking to gather more points with a deeper run in the tournament. In a recent tweet by Noxville on Twitter, Team Liquid has seemingly virtually qualified for the International 12.
Team Liquid qualified with Gaimin Gladiators close behind.
With the team’s dominating performance this year, it is almost certain that Team Liquid will attend TI12. Although they have been considered the strongest team in the world, they have come up short multiple times against Gaimin Gladiators, the Lima Major and DreamLeague Season 19 champions.
Noxville's tweet confirms that Team Liquid is well on its way to qualifying for TI12, with Gaimin Gladiators close behind. The team has already accumulated a significant amount of DPC points before the conclusion of the second major of the season. There is still one more DPC tour and Major (Bali Major 2023) to go in the near future, with more DPC points on the line.
Team Liquid has always been known as an emotional team, where its players are incredibly passionate about Dota 2 and every loss affects them deeply. In a recent interview, Nisha also talked about this, mentioning how the team atmosphere was "sad" after the game 1 loss against Xtreme Gaming in the Berlin Major.
However, the team's resilience and mental fortitude have always helped them bounce back from losses and come back stronger. This was evident in games 2 and 3 against Xtreme Gaming, where the players were able to keep their cool and secure the victory, despite the initial setback. It's this ability to stay strong in the face of adversity that sets Team Liquid apart and makes them a force to be reckoned with in the competitive Dota 2 scene.
Team Liquid's impressive run in the DPC has put them in the top spot for DPC rankings, virtually securing its place in the International 12. With the team’s current performance, they are one of the favorites to take the title at TI12. The team's dominance throughout the year has been impressive, and it will be exciting to see how they perform in the upcoming DPC WEU 2023 Tour 2: Division 1 and Bali Major.
