Team Liquid: Europeans determined to win
Team Liquid has been doing well throughout the 2021/22 DPC cycle in Europe. The team secured a title on the winter tour, also finishing second in the regional winter finals, which drew extra DPC points, instead of the first cancelled major. In the spring, Liquid finished third in the regional league and went to the major to put up a mediocre performance, placing 9-12. Due to their failure at the major, the European team had to try to perform well in the regional league Summer Tour. And Team Liquid managed to do this, taking second place and getting a ticket to the August Major in the U.S.
At the Riyadh Masters 2022 at the end of July, the European team played with a substitute. The mighty Ana replaced MATUMBAMAN. Why the Finn didn't go to the UAE with the team is unknown, but it was much more important for Team Liquid to get their main player to the USA.
The match with Outsiders is extremely important. The Eastern European opponent is not only principled, but also one of the most dangerous in the group, so the Swedes and the Finn will have a special attitude towards the Russian Bears.
Outsiders: Russian champion intends to keep gaining points
The long-suffering Bears are finally reaching their peak form. The Russian team's DPC spring season was horrible. In the first game, carry Pure earned a suspension and then was kicked out.
VP kept silent for a long time and at the beginning of the summer tour announced their rescue plan. The legendary RAMZES666 returned to his home team. Many no longer believed in Roman, but he proved with his play that he was ready to break into the elite of the dota scene again, and not just to take money from advertising contracts. Outsiders sensationally won the Eastern European DPC League summer tour, beating NaVi and Team Spirit in the championship replay. Notably, the Bears only lost to NaVi in the regular season, but the VP players themselves reported that they played that day with poor health.
It's very important that the full roster of Outsiders came to the United States. All of the Russian players got visas, which means that VPs will show their best.
Outsiders is a tag created as a neutral name for the team and now gives it the right to participate in major cybersports tournaments.
