Team Liquid uniform
Western European esports club Team Liquid are having a great season, except for the fact that on the international stage, Insania and their teammates are systematically one step away from victory. Their main and only opponent this year is Team Gaimin Gladiators. Liquid started the year with a first place finish at DPC WEU 2023 Tour 1: Division I and $30,000. This earned the players a trip to Lima Major 2023, where they reached the finals and won silver, which brought $100,000 in prize money. In the next round of the DPC 2023 ranking season, Team Liquid once again won the Western Europe Division 1 and earned another $30,000. Before travelling to Berlin to participate in ESL One Berlin Major 2023, Insania and his teammates played in the first tournament of the ESL Pro Tour Dota 2 2023 series, namely DreamLeague Season 19. The team successfully took second place, Ledgeiv Gaimin Gladiators in an intense final with a score of 2:3. The players were rewarded with $175,000 in prize money.

At the DPC WEU 2023 Tour 3: Division I, the team lost some ground and finished in fourth place in the standings. However, that was good enough for a trip to Bali Major 2023. The only failure this year for Insania and the team was a 15th-16th place finish at DreamLeague Season 20, which earned them a $10,000 consolation prize. Silver at Bali Major 2023 with another grand final against Gaimin Gladiators earned $100,000. For the entire season, Team Liquid earned 2,150 DPC points and will head to The International 2023.

Predicted result of the match Entity - Team Liquid
Taking into account the current form of Team Liquid and their rich history of second places in top international tournaments, let's bet on the victory of Team Liquid.
Team Liquid is the 3rd team in the world ranking. At DPC the guys have no problems. They finish the first 2 rounds in 1st place. The 3rd round they finished only on the 4th position. But at the bigger events they can't get past Gaimin Gladiators. Both at Lima Major and DreamLeague S19 are located in the final table right after them in 2nd place. Berlin Major ends the same way. Nothing new. But at Dreamleague S20 the team definitely surprised us. They took the last place in the tournament. At Bali Major they again showed very good results and took the 2nd place, losing to GG again.
Entity is the 21st team in the world ranking. The first round of DPC in their region played well, taking the 4th place in the end. There were of course risks to be out of the safety zone, but the replay put everything in its place and from the company of Tundra, ETG, OG the last were weaker. Lima Major held decent. As a result, they share the 5th-6th place with EG. The second round of DPC is not going well at all. They finished in 6th place. They could have been relegated to the 2nd division, but in the re-games for the 6th-8th place they coped with Nigma and Monaspa. The 3rd round did not differ from the 2nd round. The team again settled on the 6th place, almost getting relegated to the 2nd div. But they confidently went through the regional qualifications for TI, sharing a slot with Quest Esports.
Day 1. It's hard to imagine what's going to happen, but I think I can believe in the ETG card.
I'm a prognosticator, that's what I do for a living. I devote all my time to it. No other interests.
I have been doing it for a long time and I have achieved some success in it. To believe me or not is up to everyone. But why not give it a try? Maybe you like this kind of life!
Prediction: +1.5 ETG!
