The Dota 2 Champions League (D2CL) Season 16 is underway in the EEU region. Given how poorly this region fared in The International 11 (TI11), and reinforcing the decline of team spirit, EEU teams need to step up their game if they intend to make their region great again.

Dota 2 Champions League S16 Playoffs :

To be honest, there aren’t really any well-known teams in the competition to call home, but there are certainly some staples in the DPC 2022 season. For example, One Move, X3, Monaspa, and IVY are likely winners heading into the finals this weekend. Regardless, we’re at the point in D2CL S16 where these teams will battle it out in a well-executed Dota 2 showdown.IVY, despite being a staple in the DPC Division 2 brackets, fell to the lower bracket very early in the playoffs. Nevertheless, they have been able to maintain their tournament life by easily defeating most of the no-name teams.

Standouts at D2CL S16 :

One Move, X3, AncientTribe, and Monaspa won the opening Upper Bracket rounds, so here are some highlights of their performances. One Move has a decent stack of players who you would expect to put in a good game. They pack a heavy team fight-oriented draft in most games, which makes them an exciting team to watch.X3 is very new among the upper bracket candidates, but has a strong drafter to back their execution. We often see him completing snowballing line-ups that opponents in this bracket have a hard time countering.

Ancient Tribe, isn’t dominant by any means, but with Nikola “labrondota” Popovic, they’re a good stack. They tend to pick unconventional heroes, but LeBronDota is playing as the typical support, so he’s definitely not the X-factor going into D2CL S16. Regardless, they are still going strong in the upper bracket.Then there is Monaspa, a team name that is mostly unfamiliar. However, Greek fans will recognize former Ed Finam players. Specifically, we have Giorgos “Saspartan” Gianakopoulos, Sakis “D’Asier” Kartsampas, and Kharis “Skylark” Zafiriou.

These relics of the Greek’s finest Dota players are definitely a blast from the past. Therefore, it becomes clear that they have older roots in their drafts, such as Shadow Fiend, Necrophos, and Broodmother Cheese picks.The initial four upper bracket teams are favored to advance to the Finals, regardless of how the bracket looks.

Who would win the D2CL S16?

As the Grand Finals draws closer, only one team will earn $20,000 in prize pool winnings and bragging rights as champions. We featured a number of phenomenal teams in D2CL S16, which makes this conversation a difficult topic. However, we can definitely expect One Move to win the finals of this season. For one, this team has been very consistent since its formation in May 2022.

They barely survive with a fifth place finish in DPC Tour 3 Division 1, but given that they clash with Batboom quite often,Makes them more reliable. Additionally, they lost to Betaboom during the TI11 regional qualifications, who later went on to qualify for TI11. In addition, One Move has a long history of good performances in previous D2CL tournaments, where they took runner-up wins, second only to Betboom.
