The team has a widely known and powerful team from the Netherlands, the winners of The International 2017 and runner-up of The International 2019, also showed good results and take 4th place at TI 2018. However, this team has not earned any major achievements in the last 2 years, which gives cause for doubt in their victory on quals. The first match, Team Liquid will play against DGG Esports.
Qojqva (Team Liquid, Streamer) assured:
In exactly 11 or 12 days, we will see a Liquid win the TI qualifier. The first time will be first one two three, I think it's gonna be Liquid, Secret, and then Nigma Galaxy, that's how it's gonna be
Entity is an Indian esports organization but now has European players. The team had little success in South Asia and, after expansion into Europe and a new roster from Creepwave, began to demonstrate a good game. At the start of the qualifications, they will compete with Alliance.
EG “Cr1t” about Entity:
I don't think they will 100 go to TI, because Europe is hard, there's Nigma, Secret, there's Liquid, and there's entity right, those are the big ones, and then there's like goonsquad and Alliance and all sorts of random teams
Another famous team, they have 3rd place at The International 2021 and 4th at TI 2019. It is interesting that in 2020, Team Secret won 7 different tournaments with a score of 3:0 in the final. However, the team signed 3 new players this year, who have already shown promising results. They will fight against Into The Breach for a place in the upper bracket.
They won DPC WEU 2021/2022 Tour 3: Division II recently and came back to Division I. The team consists of strong players, in addition, SumaiL joined them. Nigma took 3rd place at The International 2021: Western Europe Qualifier. Their first opponents will be goonsquad.
This team with a long history, winners at The International 2013, withal today they have no achievements and got 9th - 12th places at last year's TI. Despite this, they should not be excluded.
The young team was formed in 2022 by ex-Alliance and Chicken Fighters players. They easily won DPC WEU 2021/2022 Tour 2: Division II and became the first ever DPC team to finish a tour with a 14-0 map score.
Fear (Clinton Loomis) analyzed WEU qualifier:
This region, Secret for sure. Secret, Nigma, and I think Entity are my top three for the region. It’s between Entity and Liquid, hard to say. It’s gonna be a close one, that’s for sure, for that region. Based on results, I feel that Alliance isn’t in the discussion, they are not gonna make it right, in my opinion
I believe that the rest of the teams have minimal chances to win because most of them do not have any achievements or strong players. Nonetheless, we can expect everything from DOTA, especially after the new patch, maybe one of the teams will surprise us and show an incredible result.
