Tundra Esports, the reigning champion of The International 11, has been on an unparalleled rampage in the Western Europe (WEU) Dota Pro Circuit (DPC). Undefeated in its campaign, the team has emerged victorious in all five of its series, solidifying its dominance in the region. Its recent triumph over DPC powerhouse Team Liquid in a closely contested 2-1 battle propelled Tundra Esports to secure qualification for the highly anticipated Bali Major 2023. With a chance to obtain a share of the $500,000 USD prize pool and 3,500 DPC Points, Tundra Esports now sets its sights on achieving a strong finish in the tournament to secure a direct qualification to The International 12.

While PSG.LGD and Team Aster qualified from the cutthroat DPC China division, Tundra Esports' formidable performance in the Western Europe DPC has cemented its status as a major contender for the championship title. The trio's qualification sets the stage for an exhilarating clash of talent and strategy at the Bali Major.

In an unexpected twist in the North American DPC, Nouns shook the standings by defeating fan-favorite TSM, securing the top spot with a perfect record of five series wins. Shopify Rebellion, long considered the best team in the region, has dominated its opponents, securing five series victories without dropping a single game. As the competition intensifies, there is a possibility of Nouns snatching a Top 2 finish and a Bali Major qualification, while Shopify Rebellion's next series against Nouns holds the key to securing its own qualification slot.

33 may not be playing at the Major

Tundra Esports' journey in the Dota Pro Circuit (DPC) Western Europe (WEU) 2023 Tour 3: Division I has been filled with remarkable victories and dominant performances. However, a cloud of uncertainty looms over the team’s qualification for the Bali Major 2023 as its talented offlaner, Neta "33" Shapira, revealed in a previous post-match interview that he may not be able to attend the tournament, even if the team secures qualification.

As the Bali Major 2023 draws nearer, Tundra Esports' undefeated streak and subsequent qualification serve as a testament to its exceptional gameplay and dedication. With PSG.LGD, Team Aster, and Tundra Esports leading the way, the Dota 2 community eagerly anticipates the clash of titans at the prestigious tournament. The race for qualification continues in both Western Europe and North America, promising intense battles and unexpected outcomes as teams strive to secure their place among the Dota 2 elite.
