Aster may finally unwind because their Major slot is secured after only two games and no series losses in the Dota Pro Circuit 2023 (DPC 2023). Five of the seven series were won by Aster. After a dominant DPC run, Team Aster is the first to secure a spot in the Lima Major 2023

Expectations before the event were dashed by Team Aster

Sincere to say, Aster was the last player any Chinese Dota 2 fan expected to perform the best in DPC 2023. Many supporters anticipated Aster would require some time before recovering their status as a superpower because Zeng “Ori” Jiaoyang, considered the golden kid of Aster, withdrew from competitive Dota 2.

However, Zhai “Xwy” Jingkai, Aster’s newest mid-player, far exceeded everyone’s expectations. Since his debut on Keen Gaming’s International 9 (TI9) roster, Xwy has moved around from team to team, without really attracting much attention. Whatever the case, Aster’s assured performance at DPC 2023 is evidence of Xwy’s promise on the right squad.

Overview of DPC 2023 China

A talented group of Chinese and Malaysian individuals make up the new DPC 2023 CN Division 1 contender, The Knights. They were able to wrest the series away from PSG. The experienced teams in this bracket are LGD and Xtreme Gaming. Despite clearly having a difficult time against the Knights, Aster managed to win 2-1 in the end.

Aster had no issue disposing of opponents like Xtreme, EHOME, Dawn Gaming, and Aster in subsequent series after the initial one against Knights. Aries. The inactive hero selections selected by Xwy, which included initiators who snowball well in the middle of the game, may have contributed to Aster’s lineup’s success. Although Xwy’s go-to champions are Ember Spirit and Templar Assassin, she also plays other powerful lane-dominating champions like Brood’s mother with relative ease. This demonstrates the diverse hero pool that Xwy has once more. The secret to winning in the late game is always to give Aster players a better time overall, as we can see from this.

At the Lima Major 2023, Team Aster will compete against the entire world

Aster has many factors to think about when anticipating the Lima Major in terms of competition risks. The Western European teams’ dominance in TI11 last year marks the end of the era of powerful Chinese teams, for one. Aster’s position in the standings was fourth when they were defeated by Team Liquid’s unconventional Night Stalker carry choice. If we take a brief look at the DPC 2023 WEU area, it is already chaotic as Liquid and Gaimin Gladiators seize the top ranks while Team Secret, the runner-up from TI11, struggles to win.

Furthermore, the South American scene includes a lineup of notable contenders of its own, including Evil Geniuses and beastcoast. This consists of the promising South American athletes who excel in TI11. However, Aster should be commended for being the first team confirmed for the Lima Major 2023. Their trip in DPC 2023 is still not over because they still have a highly anticipated match against a seasoned foe, PSG. LGD and Invictus Gaming, a reigning Major Champion.
