WEU DPC 2023 Tour 2: Division I - Schedule, Results, and Other Details
While only some time has passed since the Lima Major 2023, the excitement continues to build as the top professionals vie for supremacy in the Dota Pro Circuit (DPC) 2023 Tour 2: Division I. Western Europe (WEU) is perhaps the most anticipated region this time around, not just because of its popularity, but also because it was the most successful region at the Major, with both grand finalists hailing from it. It promises some enticing games, including a replay of the Lima Major grand finals on the opening day itself, March 13th. A total of $205,000 USD is on the line, with the eight best WEU Division I teams keeping a sharp eye on the 920 DPC points.
Here is a detailed look at the teams competing, the schedule, and the results of the WEU DPC 2023 Tour 2: Division I.

Where to watch
The WEU DPC 2023 Tour 2: Division I will be broadcast in English on PGL's official Dota 2 Twitch channel.
With more DPC points on offer than Tour 1, Tour 2 is likely to be fairly critical for teams to consolidate their places in the overall standings. This will be particularly true for teams who have already achieved some strong ranking based on their positive achievements in Tour 1.
Some intriguing storylines will be to see if Gaimin Gladiators can maintain its top form from the Lima Major run, if OG and Nigma Galaxy can make a comeback, and if the two promoted teams - Ooredoo Thunders and Monaspa - can cause some problems for the other six teams.
