The 9Pandas collective came into existence in the second half of the season, signing the HellRaisers squad.

At the DPC EEU 2023 Tour 3: Division I 9Pandas also won bronze, received $27,000 and the opportunity to go to Bali Major 2023. But before that, the sixth place at DreamLeague Season 20 provided the Eastern Europeans with $47,500 in prize money. At the Bali Major 2023, the 9Pandas team finished in 5th-6th place in the standings, earning $25,000 and DPC rating points. Riyadh Masters 2023 went the same way for Solo and his teammates.

According to the results of the draw of the group stage of the championship 9Pandas fell into Group B. There Solo and Ledge and BetBoom Team outplayed Nigma Galaxy and played a draw with beastcoast. Such a game forced the representatives of Eastern Europe to participate in bo1 tiebreaker against Peruvians for a place in the top play-offs. After losing 0:1, 9Pandas travelled to the losers' bracket. 9Pandas lost their first match in the quarter-finals of the lower set to TSM on two consecutive maps. The 5th-6th place at BetBoom Dacha left the team without an award.

Shopify Rebellion Form

Shopify Rebellion have performed decently at the regional level this year, but have mostly failed to compete on the international stage. The year started for Arteezy and team with a second place finish at DPC NA 2023 Tour 1: Division I, which allowed the players to earn $28,000 and head to Lima Major 2023. A win at the BTS Pro Series Season 14: Americas earned an additional $16,000. The Major tournament in Lima was one of Shopify Rebellion's few successful appearances outside of its own region. Fourth place secured the DPC players points and $50,000 in prize money. At the DPC NA 2023 Tour 2: Division I, the American club also took second place. DreamLeague Season 19, the first tournament of the ESL Pro Tour Dota 2 2023 series, resulted in a bronze medal and $120,000 for SR. At ESL One Berlin Major 2023 and Bali Major 2023, Arteezy and his teammates failed, finishing in 9th-12th place at both Major Championships. Such a performance left the team empty-handed.

Predicted result of the match 9Pandas - Shopify Rebellion

9Pandas started their performance at DreamLeague Season 21 very confidently, but Shopify Rebellion have already managed to defeat the reigning world champions. Let's bet on a draw in the match.

9 Pandas is the 10th team in the world ranking. DPC CIS region in the first round finished in 3rd place, missing Spirit and BB. At Lima Major the guys take only a modest 9th-12th place. They gather their strength and finish the second round of DPC already on the 1st place, not missing anyone in front of them. DreamLeague, however, is not set at all and the organisation leaves the tournament with 13th-14th position. Berlin Major, on the other hand, is much more pleasant. The team manages to get to the top 3, missing only Liquid and GG. The 3rd round was not quite successful. They are on the 3rd position, but they still made it to the TI, so it's not critical. DreamLeague S20 is not bad or good, finishing in 7th place. At Bali Major they took the top 6, a good result.

Shopify Rebellion is the 19th team in the world ranking. Lima major was phenomenal in my opinion with the level of play the team was showing at the time. Ranked 4th. Both DPCs in their region finish in 2nd place behind TSM. It's probably some sort of barrier in their heads as they are objectively playing better. Dreamleague S19 is also extremely successful. They are on the 3rd position in the final table. Berlin Major was quite sad, sharing 9th-12th place in the end. In the 3rd round DPC are doing absolutely well, losing only 1 map out of 7 matches. DreamLeague S20 was not so successful for the team. They finished it only on a modest 11th position. A similar situation happened to the organisation at Bali Major, where they finished in 9th-12th place.

Both teams look pretty strong. At least based on the performance on the first day of the tournament. I'm guessing SR will be able to pick up the card.

I'm a prognosticator, that's what I do for a living. I devote all my time to it. No other interests.

I've been doing this for a long time and I've had some success in it. Whether to believe me or not is up to everyone. But why not give it a try? Maybe you like this kind of life!
