One evaporates, another one cracks
One of Europe’s brightest stars during the early DPC WEU 2021/22 season, Team Liquid, has evaporated out of ESL One Malaysia 2022.
Their performance over the past two seasons has been disappointing, given the caliber of their star-studded roster.
Team Liquid will need to grind through the gruesome TI11 qualifiers in the Western European region to qualify for the crown jewel Dota 2 event — The International 11.
Given the level of competition in Group B of ESL One Malaysia 2022, Insania and co. had a difficult task ahead of them. They lost only one series against OG Esports and drew the remainder of their series.
However, that wasn’t enough, which resulted in a last-place finish.
It is disheartening to see them go through the cut-throat qualifiers for TI11, considering this might as well be Lasse “MATUMBAMAN” Urpalainen’s last year of playing competitive Dota 2.
Another victim of the ESL One Malaysia 2022 was BOOM Esports.
One of Southeast Asia’s brightest stars, BOOM hasn’t been able to replicate the success shown during the early season.
Despite securing a direct invite to TI11 via accruing ample DPC points, their current form is a cause of concern.
They had mixed results at ESL One Malaysia 2022, with one win, two losses, and two draws. Needless to say, it wasn’t enough either.
Along with Team Liquid, BOOM Esports also bombed out of the tournament in the second last place.
