The Bali Major 2023 playoffs are currently ongoing, with the remaining teams competing to have a chance at the Major title.
The Top 4 of the tournament are all from Western Europe (WEU), featuring Gaimin Gladiators, Tundra Esports, Quest Esports, and Team Liquid.
Two major storylines to follow are Gaimin Gladiators’ potential 3-peat major victories and Quest Esports’ potential TI qualification through a Top 2 finish.

The Bali Major 2023 playoffs have reached an exciting stage as the top four teams of the tournament have been decided, highlighting the dominance of the Western Europe (WEU) region. In the upper bracket, Tundra Esports and Gaimin Gladiators have secured their spots and will face off in order to decide the first team to enter the Grand Finals of the tournament. On the other side of the brackets, Team Liquid and Quest Esports battle it out in the lower bracket, where the winner will face off in the lower bracket final against the loser of Tundra and Gaimin Gladiators. After a short decline for WEU teams at Dreamleague Season 20, the region seems to be back in form, reminding fans of the domination that occurred in the Lima and Berlin Major 2023, as well as Dreamleague Season 19.

Gaimin Gladiators: Aiming for Back-to-Back Wins and Tier 1 Domination

One of the main storylines of the Bali Major 2023 revolves around the potential for Gaimin Gladiators to cement its name in Dota 2 history. Currently sitting in the upper bracket, the team is vying to secure a third consecutive Dota 2 Major win, a feat that would equal the current record held by OG for winning three majors in a single season.

Additionally, if Gaimin Gladiators emerge victorious in the Bali Major 2023 and then potentially win the upcoming Riyadh Masters 2023, the team will have won every single Tier 1 tournament in the season, which has never been done before and would solidify the team’s dominance as one of the most formidable teams to grace the game.


Quest Esports: Underdogs on the Rise and TI12 Qualification Dreams

The second captivating storyline of the Bali Major 2023 centers around Quest Esports, a team that has surpassed expectations and emerged as a strong contender in the tournament and the region. Despite being considered underdogs, Quest Esports has displayed remarkable skill and determination, captivating the fans and the Dota 2 community.

The team’s journey at the Bali Major holds significant implications for its potential qualification to The International 12 (TI12). To secure a direct invite to TI12 and displace BetBoom from the standings, Quest Esports must secure a top-two finish at the Bali Major 2023, which would earn them the minimum Dota Pro Circuit (DPC) points.

The only way for the team to achieve this is for them to overcome Team Liquid, then prevail against the loser of the series between Gaimin Gladiators and Tundra Esports, leading them to the grand finals where they can gain the required DPC points.

As the Bali Major 2023 playoffs progress, the stage is set for the high stake games. The dominance of the Western Europe teams highlights the region's dominance over the 2023 DPC season. With the two major storylines to follow, fans will be excited to watch which team comes out on top as the winner at the last Dota 2 Major of the season.
