Talon Esports began the 2023 year by competing in the M. Invitational 2023, where they finished in fourth place and earned $5,000. Third place at the DPC SEA 2023 Tour 1: Division I earned the first DPC points, $27,000, and a trip to Lima, Peru. Before the first Major tournament of the season, 23savage and crew won the BTS Pro Series Season 14: Southeast Asia for $16,000. At Lima Major 2023, Talon Esports sensationally won bronze and $75,000 in prize money. This performance made it clear that Talon can trouble the big name teams this year and are focused on results. A win at DPC SEA 2023 Tour 2: Division I also earned the team a slot at the second Major event of the season. An 11th-12th place finish at DreamLeague Season 19 secured the players $20,000. At ESL One Berlin Major 2023, Talon Esports finished in the top 8 of the tournament and were able to earn $12,500 and additional DPC points. DPC SEA 2023 Tour 3: Division I was the last event of the DPC season for 23savage and his teammates, as fourth place prevented them from travelling to Bali. Therefore, Talon Esports was left to finish the tournaments of ESL Pro Tour Dota 2 2023 series. In DreamLeague Season 20, the representatives of Southeast Asia took the fourth place and received $85,000 as a reward. During the season, the Thai squad managed to earn 1120 DPC points, which was enough for a direct invitation to The International 2023.
Prior to participating in DreamLeague Season 21, Talon Esports travelled to Riyadh, the capital of Saudi Arabia, where they competed at the Riyadh Masters 2023. This is the final tournament of the ESL Pro Tour Dota 2 2023 series. Due to their success in previous championships, Talon Esports made it straight into the group stage, skipping the Play-In stage. 23savage and team made it to Group B, where they finished fourth with a 3-2-2 statistic. This was good enough to qualify for the top set of play-offs. Talon Esports started the final stage with a 2-1 win over Quest Esports. In the semifinals of the top set, Team Liquid became too much of a challenge for them. A 1-2 defeat sent Talon Esports into the losers' bracket. In the quarter-finals of the lower set Talon defeated 9Pandas on two maps in a row and advanced to the semi-finals where Gaimin Gladiators were waiting for them. A sensational win over the reigning three-time Major champions in a full bo3 series put Talon Esports into the final of the lower grid. But Team Liquid were still no match for 23savage and crew. After losing 2-0, Talon Esports finished in third place at the Riyadh Masters 2023 and earned a record $1,700,000 in prize money for the organisation.
According to the results of the draw for DreamLeague Season 21, Talon Esports was placed in Group A. First 23savage and Team Ledge defeated Tundra Esports with the score 0:2, and then lost to 9Pandas with the same result.

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 its 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.

Predicted result of Talon Esports - Team Liquid matchup
Team Liquid are having a great season, although they haven't looked like themselves so far in the current tournament. Talon Esports are also not looking their best. But Insania and the team found the keys to victory over Talon more often than not. Let's bet on the victory of Team Liquid.
Talon Esports is the 4th team of the world ranking. In the first round of DPC they are only on the 3rd line, missing Execration and GeekFam. But Lima Major is going great. They finished it on the 3rd place. The 2nd round of DPC after such a result at the Major naturally ends on the 1st place. DreamLeague was not so bright. The team only managed to get to the 11th-12th position. Major in Berlin is a bit more successful. They shared 7th-8th place with Team Aster. The 3rd round the team played quite disgustingly. They gave up a lot of series and ended up in 4th place without even getting to the last major of the year.
Team Liquid is the 3rd team of the world ranking. The guys have no problems at DPC. The first 2 rounds end in 1st place. The 3rd round finished in 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 again showed very good results and took 2nd place, again losing to GG.
Both organisations start the tournament with two sad defeats. I don't quite know what to do with them, so I think the best solution will be the outsider's handicap.
I'm a prognosticator, that's what I do for a living. I devote all my time to it. I have no other interests.
I have been doing it for 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!
