Dota 2 News: Tour 1 of DPC 2022-23 Season is live; What we are watching
Tour 1 of the DPC 2022-23 Season is now live and there are few matches to not miss.
In the break from The International 2022 to now, teams have been undergoing some pretty hefty roster changes and even moves in preparation for the DPC 2022-23 Season.
Now that things have settled down, it’s time to watch the action live and see which teams won the roster shuffle, and which teams will start the new season with a trip to Lima, Peru for the first Major and some DPC points lining their pockets.
The new DPC season will be featuring a format change. The regional leagues went down to three weeks from six and the two divisions of each region will be played one after another instead of simultaneously.
Team Liquid completed its lineup with Michał “Nisha” Jankowski assuming the mid-lane role left open by Lasse “MATUMBAMAN” Urpalainen’s retirement. After bidding farewell to Nisha, Team Secret introduced Miroslav “BOOM” Bičan as the new mid-player, finalizing the roster.
TI11 Champion with Team Spirit, Alexander “TORONTOTOKYO” Khertek not only decided to part ways with his teammates but also made a rather interesting role swap. This season he will be playing under the BetBoom Team banner as position 5 support.
SEA organization Blacklist will make its Dota 2 debut picking up a full Filipino squad.
