D2CL Season 9 playoffs start today

While at DPC 2021/2022 teams are fighting for slots in the Major, Eastern Europe is on pause due to the war between Russia and Ukraine. The only thing that teams from the "CIS region" should rely on is participation in local tournaments.

One of these tournaments took place despite the aforementioned war unleashed by the Russian Federation. This is Dota 2 Champions League Season 9, where the playoffs start today.

In the new season, the organizers of the event decided to dilute the list of participants, but reduce the invitations directly to the main stage. This time only Virtus.pro got the honor.
