When does DreamLeague S22 start?
The list of participants is filled with renowned names, and there is great anticipation surrounding the performance of the new OG lineup. Sebastian “Ceb” Debs, in particular, is fueled by the determination to secure a few more trophies before his retirement. Undoubtedly, Team Spirit, Gaimin Gladiators, and Team Liquid enter the tournament in excellent form and spirits, likely maintaining the same level of strength they exhibited in 2023.
Consequently, their chances of clinching victory, given their understanding of the current meta, are incredibly high. Each of these three teams possesses a distinct approach to utilizing timing, hero combinations, and item synergies that consistently yield favorable tournament results.
Team Spirit, for instance, has maintained a stable lineup for three years, with only one player change. This continuity has fortified their core and enabled them to showcase their strength, resulting in triumphs such as the Riyadh Masters 2023 and The International 12. In fact, they became the second team in the world, following OG, to achieve such illustrious success at TI.
While it is difficult to make definitive assertions at this point, it is reasonable to speculate that the Chinese teams will also pose formidable challenges. While they have undergone some squad changes, their inclusion of world-class players should undoubtedly contribute to their overall performance.
