Xm who operates the midlane for Xtreme Gaming recently spoke his mind and shared the top five midlane players in Dota 2.
Notable exclusions from Xm's list include players like Larl from Team Spirit and SumaiL from Nigma Galaxy.
Xm's rankings align with recent tournament successes, emphasizing the prowess of players like gpk and Malr1ne.

In the current Dota 2 circuit, Xtreme Gaming, is emerging as one of the frontrunners of the scene and has been delivering impressive performances one after the other in various tournaments. Notably, becoming the first team to qualify for the highly anticipated Riyadh Masters at Esports World Cup 2024. 

Recently, Xtreme Gaming’s midlaner, Guo "Xm" Hongcheng, sat down for an interview with esports.gg, having a discussion on various topics and one of them involved him naming his top five midlane players in the world.

Xm Lists His Top Five Midlaners in Dota 2

Xm from Xtreme Gaming recently spoke his mind, revealing the top five Dota 2 midlaners from around the world.

The list was dominated by BetBoom Team’s Danil "gpk" Skutin, followed by the recently crowned ESL One Birmingham 2024 champions, Stanislav "Malr1ne" Potorak of Team Falcons.

The third name on the list was that of Michał "Nisha" Jankowski from Team Liquid and the fourth position went to Topias "Topson" Taavitsainen from Tundra Esports. 

The final name on the list was fellow Chinese player, Cheng "NothingToSay" Jin Xiang of G2 x iG.

The final list of Dota 2 midlaners was as follows,

  1. gpk

  2. Malr1ne

  3. Nisha

  4. Topson

  5. NothingToSay

While Xm gave no particular reason for naming these five players above the rest of the player base. The list has seen some repetitive names such as gpk, and Nisha who were also a part of Malr1ne’s top three Dota 2 midlaners.

Interestingly, the list did not contain some notable names such as Team Spirit’s Denis "Larl" Sigitov, Gaimin Gladiators' Quinn "Quinn" Callahan and Nigma Galaxy’s Sumail "SumaiL" Hassan who is often referred to as 'King'.

Interestingly, out of the five mentioned midlaners, four along with Xm himself have already qualified for the Riyadh Masters while Topson from Tundra Esports still has to perform well at the upcoming DreamLeague Season 23 to ensure a spot at the Riyadh Masters.

But before we witness the action unfold in DreamLeague Season 23, PGL Wallachia Season 1 will be entertaining all Dota 2 fans, slated to take place from 10th to 19th May 2024 featuring a total prize pool of $1,000,000 USD.
