DreamLeague Season 13 Qualifiers Preview: Who Are The Favorites For Each Region?

Published: Nov 29, 2019 - Last Updated: Jul 25, 2023

The regional qualifiers for the second Major of the Dota Pro Circuit are quickly approaching. The open qualifiers are almost finished and apart from the Chinese region, where PSG.LGD failed to make it to the closed qualifier, we’ve had no surprises so far.

The biggest battle is taking place in Europe, where Nigma (ex-Liquid) and Team Secret are trying to make it to the closed qualifier after declining to take part in the qualifiers for the first Major of the season.

DreamLeague Season 13 Qualifiers Dates

The regional qualifiers for DreamLeague Season 13 are scheduled to take place for all six regions between December 1st – 4th.

DreamLeague Season 13 Qualifiers Participants

These are the participants for each region of the DreamLeague Season 13 Qualifiers.


  • Alliance
  • Team Liquid
  • Ad Finem
  • SworDDarK-
  • Godsent
  • Wind and Rain
  • Team Singularity
  • six eight three
  • TBD (probably Nigma)
  • TBD (probably Team Secret)

The big favorites here are definitely Nigma, Team Secret, Alliance and Team Liquid. The first two teams are considerably stronger than the other two, so their place at the Major can almost be taken for granted. The only real battle will take place between Liquid and Alliance. Both of them are very strong at this point and the skill difference between them is minimal.

Team Secret Dreamleague Season 13 Qualifier

In order to get to this qualification tournament, Nigma needs to win over OG Seed in the Open Qualifiers. Interestingly enough, OG has announced that they won’t start to compete until the 3rd Major this season. Instead, they will focus on teaching everything they know to another team and practically become their coach for the first part of the season. This sort of thing is unheard of but since OG is the winner of the last two TIs, I suppose they can do whatever they please and experiment with the possibilities just for the sake of having fun.

North America

  • Evil Geniuses
  • Fighting PandaS
  • J.Storm
  • Ninjas in Pyjamas
  • Team Xolotl
  • Demon Slayers
  • Chaos Esports Club
  • DoZe
  • TBD
  • TBD

In the NA region, the big favorites are Evil Geniuses and J.Storm. NiP and Fighting PandaS also have a small chance to qualify, but it’s not that great. Keep in mind that unlike Europe, North America only has two slots for the Major.

  • Vici Gaming
  • Team Aster
  • Invictus Gaming
  • Newbee
  • CDEC Gaming
  • Look for Smile
  • Royal Never Give Up
  • Dark Knight
  • Revive

With PSG.LGD failing to qualify for the regionals, the big favorites in China are Vici Gaming, Team Aster and Invictus Gaming. All of these teams looked quite strong at the MDL Chengdu Major, so there’s no reason to assume that they’ll lose to considerably weaker opponents.

Invictus Gaming Dota 2 Team At Mdl


  • Fnatic
  • TNC Predator
  • Team Adroit
  • Cigal Ultra
  • Geek Fam
  • BOOM Esports
  • Reality Rift
  • Sterling Global Dragons
  • Neon Esports
  • Alpha x Hashtag

The esports odds of TNC Predator or Fnatic losing the Major qualification are almost zero. Both teams are vastly stronger than the rest.

The battle in this region will take place between Gambit, Virtus.Pro and Natus Vincere. This will be a big moment for VP, as they already lost the first Minor and Major of the season.
