dreamleague season 23

The longest-running Dota 2 esports league is back once again, as DreamLeague powered by Intel enters its 23rd season, with a UK caster involved, plus UK-headquartered org Tundra.

The week-long online tournament will be kicking off on May 20th, and will feature the best teams in the world competing to claim the coveted title and take home the lion’s share of the $1m total prize pool.

The winning team will also receive 6,000 of the 26,100 available ESL Pro Tour (EPT) Points with which they will take a big leap towards the top of the EPT Leaderboard. At the end of the EPT season, the eight squads placed highest on the leaderboard will secure a spot in Riyadh Masters at the inaugural season of Esports World Cup (EWC), with 12 more spots available through regional qualifiers, for a total of twenty.

BetBoom Team, Team Falcons, Xtreme Gaming, Gaimin Gladiators, and Team Liquid are all guaranteed to qualify for Riyadh Masters based on their current EPT Point tallies, leaving just three leaderboard spots up for grabs.
