Opening Matches Predictions
Hokori, Tempest, Infamous, Infinity, SG esports, and Wolf Team, who will capitalise among the top dogs Thunder Awaken and beastcoast? well.
Infamous has been a steady mid-tier player in the South American professional scene; the guys have always been in the elite level, but have yet to make it to the majors. Every DPC league round modifies the lineup, and the summer of 2022 is no exception.
Surprisingly, the Infamous team came in second place in the first DPC of the 2021/22 season, but didn't go to the majors since it was mostly cancelled by Valve, who instead held a regional final, which gave Infamous second place, additional money, and DPC points.
The DPC league's second round was not as successful as the first. There was no reason to expect much after the team's fifth-place performance in the spring.
The Infamous lineup has changed before the commencement of the last regional round:
Parker, a Peruvian who spent the previous tour in the second division and helped SG esports win it and return to the top of the South American Dota scene, has moved up to the first position with the squad. If they can pull off their opening match with odds against them we might see a new team rising from the SA.
Thunder Awaken had a successful spring tour. The team won the South American Regional League, then headed to the Major in Sweden, where they did well, ending in 5th or 6th place, but losing in the playoffs to eventual champions OG.
The organisation was pleased with the results, and the team did not alter in the end. Thunder Awaken is still the clear favourite to win the Regional League, and only a slow start
