Dota Pro Circuit made up most of the game’s competitive calendar in 2021 and 2022. This changed in 2023, however, with ESL and Gamers8 stepping into the scene to organize the second-largest Dota 2 event in terms of prize pool, Riyadh Masters 2023.

Despite being an online event, DreamLeague still required players to travel to nearby European countries, eventually making the event the ultimate bootcamp/training experience for top Dota 2 teams.
