Good job!

There’s no question that Western Europe has some of the best Dota 2 teams in the world. For Tour 3, OG has managed to earn a spot at the upcoming Arlington Major after defeating Alliance.

The region has four slots available and that means the rest of the teams are fighting for the remaining three. The teams that are high in the ranks are Tundra Esports, Entity, and Team Liquid.

To better understand the situation, here are the current standings:

  • OG: 5-1
  • Tundra Esports: 4-1
  • Entity: 3-2
  • Team Liquid: 3-2
  • Gaimin Gladiators: 2-3
  • Goonsquad: 2-3
  • Team Secret: 2-3
  • Alliance: 0-6

Good Job

After winning the ESL One Stockholm Major 2022, OG has been showing consistent performance. For sure, Johan “N0tail” Sundstein is more than proud of the new roster and what they can bring to the table.

For Tour 3, their only loss so far has been against Entity. While they still have one match, which is against Liquid, they have earned the right to be part of the Arlington Major.

Next in Line

Tundra is pretty much in the same boat as OG. If they win at least one of their remaining two matches, they’ll also be going to the Arlington Major. Those matches are against Goonsquad and Gaimin Gladiators, so there’s a high chance the team could get the second spot.

Meanwhile, to join the Arlington Major, Entity and Liquid just need to make sure that the team below them won’t have a chance to catch up. However, the two teams are facing each other this week, so it would be interesting to see who wins. Whoever loses, if they’re not careful, would let other teams steal their spot.

Headed to Division II

After fighting their way back to Division I, Alliance is once again headed back to Division II. While it dominated Division II during Tour 2, the team seems to have problems dealing with those in Division I. As seen in the standings, Alliance has not won a game.

What is surprising though is that Team Secret is on the brink of being sent to Division II. Knowing team captain Clement “Puppey” Ivanov, that’s probably not going to happen. The team’s last two matches are against Goonsquad and Gaimin Gladiators.

If Team Secret manages to win just one match, they'll remain in Division I. That may be good news for fans but it’s a bitter pill to swallow since they won’t be able to join the Arlington Major.
