One of the most prestigious Dota 2 Tournament hosts, DreamLeague, has announced the groups of its 11th Season Major. Forming of the groups held from 24th to 27th January and consists of next teams.
- Group A will consist of teams Keen Gaming, J.Storm, Keen Gaming, Team Secret, and Team Liquid,

- Group C presenting Virtus.pro, Mineski Pro Team, EHOME, and Forward Gaming.

DreamLeague will be the third Major in the Dota 2 Pro Circuit season, and sixteen teams will compete for the grand prize of $1,000,000 USD. The prize has significantly increased from the last season, and only the best team will triumph with it.
The group stage will take place on 14th and 15th March followed by the playoffs which will be held from 16th to 24th of March. The top two teams from the group stage will automatically advance to the upper bracket and bottom two teams will be playing in the lower bracket, fighting for their way back into the finals.
In the last season of DreamLeague, the finalists were Tigers, and the Ukrainian team Natus Vincere, famously known as Na’ Vi. Tigers, with their enduring playstyle succeeded over staggering Na’ Vi, winning 3 to 2, granting them the winning prize and the fame that comes with it.
All eyes will be on top tier teams such as Team Secret, Team Liquid, Evil Geniuses, Virtus.pro, and LGD Gaming, but from what we learned from our experience in watching Dota 2 scene, we know that any team can win. The game of Dota 2 is unpredictable and a team gains or loses momentum rapidly as the game unravels. It is also noteworthy to say that this will be the first Major after the latest patch changes of 7.21c., which means will consist of new strategies and new exciting lane matchups. Stay tuned, and I hope you enjoy the show.
