Streamer Alexander Nix Levin spoke about the upcoming ESL One Kuala Lumpur 2023 on Dota 2. During the broadcast, he talked about the participants in the competition. A fragment from the broadcast was presented on the YouTube channel “FRUIT SLICES”.
There are conditional Gladiators who don’t play at all, just mind their own business. Secret has passed. BetBoom Team are the deadest in general, it’s clear that they have *** problems. For the sake of 9Pandas, you can still watch it, but they will come with some kind of stand-in purely to show off. Falcons – well, this is what it is, I don’t know.
There is a conditional Team Liquid. Two Chinese teams that didn’t even announce their lineup. This [Invictus Gaming, Blacklist International, TSM и Wawitas Sagazes — прим. ред.], – they generally all ***. It’s cool, of course, that Blacklist gathered a full crowd of Filipinos. This is some kind of ideal Asian dream team of the Philippines. And Abed, who ate shit, decided to return to his friends.
Some kind of cringe, I don’t know. In general, I won’t be interested in watching this tour based on the composition of the participants. Because it’s just some *** reshuffles as much as possible. Maybe the Chinese will present something interesting. If here [в LGD] there will be Somnus丶MXxs, Fy, or there Niu, XinQ and y`, then this will be a *** roster. Probably, for the sake of such LGDs I would come to look. And so you look – ***, it doesn’t look super interesting.
And the prize money is only a million dollars. It doesn’t matter to me at all, even if they play for $100. I just mean that the level of teams’ performance always changes greatly depending on the prize money. Remember The Bali Major 2023, and seven or ten days later there was Riyadh Masters 2023. And these are generally two different tournaments, although in fact they were organized at the same level. It’s just that when people understand that they are playing for a lot of money, the level of play is generally different, and the games are different, and the intensity of passions, and in general everything, everything, everything. This is a crazy decision, so everything will revolve around Riyadh Masters – this is definitely a new The International.
ESL One Kuala Lumpur 2023 will take place from December 11 to 17 at the LAN in Malaysia. Participants in the competition will compete for a million dollars.
