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 crew with a second place finish at the 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. In addition, Shopify Rebellion finished in 11th-12th place at DreamLeague Season 20 and received $20,000. At the end of the DPC 2023 ranking season, Arteezy and the team managed to score 1170 DPC points, which allowed them to take seventh place in the rankings and head to The International 2023.

The previous professional tournament for Shopify Rebellion was the Riyadh Masters 2023, a major $15,000,000 LAN tournament. The North American squad started with a group stage appearance, bypassing the Play-In, thanks to their success in previous ESL Pro Tour Dota 2 2023 series tournaments. As a result of the draw, Shopify Rebellion made it to Group B. The team performed poorly there. The 0-3-4 statistics sent Arteezy and his teammates to play a series of bo1 tiebreakers against Tundra Esports and TSM for 6th-8th place in the group. The two losses secured Shopify Rebellion's last place in the group and 15th-16th place in the standings. The American club earned $100,000 as a result of the performance.

Shopify Rebellion's debut in Group A at DreamLeague Season 21 came in a match against Entity, which ended in a draw. Arteezy and team went on to defeat Tundra Esports by a score of 2-0. Shopify Rebellion outplayed the Russian team 9Pandas.

Shopify Rebellion's recent performance stats:

  • Victory over 9Pandas with a score of 2:0
  • Victory over Tundra Esports with the score 2:0
  • A 1:1 draw with Entity
  • 0:1 defeat by Tundra Esports
  • 0:1 defeat to TSM

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 stumbling 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 Major tournament in Berlin, Team Liquid once again won the silver medal and received valuable DPC points and $100,000. 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.

The previous professional tournament for Team Liquid was the Riyadh Masters 2023, a massive LAN event held in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. The team made it to the Play-In stage thanks to EPT Ranking WEU. In Group A, Insania and the team went 3-1-1, which was good enough for second place and a spot in the group stage of the tournament. Once in Group B, Team Liquid won three matches, drew three, and Ledge only beat BetBoom Team. In the play-offs, the European club defeated Quest Esports 2-1 in the quarter-finals. The upper grid semi-final against Talon Esports ended with Team Liquid winning with a similar result. In the top grid final, Insania and team lost to Team Spirit by a score of 1-2 and travelled to the losers' grid. Another win over Talon allowed Team Liquid to advance to the grand finals of the competition. A 1-3 loss to Team Spirit secured the European club second place and $2,500,000 in prize money.

Team Liquid shocked many fans with their Long Shot at DreamLeague Season 21. Insania and his teammates travelled to Group A. The first match against 9Pandas ended with the European club losing on two consecutive maps. After losing 0:2 to Entity, Team Liquid further worsened their position at the end of the first game day. A draw with Talon Esports did not really improve the tournament situation for Liquid.

Statistics of Team Liquid's recent results:

  • A 1-1 draw with Talon Esports
  • A 0:2 loss to Entity
  • 0:2 loss to 9Pandas
  • 1:3 loss to Team Spirit
  • 2:0 win over Talon Esports

Predicted result of the match Shopify Rebellion - Team Liquid

Statistically, Team Liquid have an advantage in this match, but Shopify Rebellion are clearly better in the group stage of the tournament. Let's bet on a draw in the match.

Shopify Rebellion is the 19th ranked team in the world. Lima major are doing 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.

Team Liquid is the 3rd team of the world ranking. The guys have no problems at DPC. They finish the first 2 rounds on the 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 2nd place, losing to GG again.

I don't feel the strength that Liquid had before. SR in turn started very tight. I'll believe in a one map win from them.

I'm a prognosticator, that's all I live for. I devote all my time to it. There are no other interests.

I have been doing my activity for quite a long time and have achieved 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!
