Five Dota 2 teams—BetBoom, Liquid, Xtreme, Gaimin Gladiators, and Falcons—have already guaranteed an invite to Saudi Arabia, which means three spots remain up for grabs this season. OG, Spirit, and Tundra are next in line to lock their qualification spots in, while HEROIC, Shopify Rebellion, and Aurora sit just outside the top eight right now.

Here’s everything you need to know about DreamLeague Season 23: Full schedule, scores, standings, and more.

DreamLeague Season 23 is the final event in the EPT season two calendar and will decide which eight teams secure spots at the Esports World Cup in Riyadh later this year. DreamLeague is a two-stage event with the 12 attending teams split into two groups.

Each group plays out a best-of-two round-robin stage; the top two Dota 2 squads from each group will head to the playoff upper bracket, the next two hit the lower bracket, and the final two will be eliminated. The last eight teams then play a double-elimination bracket through to the grand final, which is a best-of-five.
