The PGL Wallachia tournament concluded with a spectacular final between Team Spirit and Xtreme Gaming, highlighting once again the supremacy of Eastern European teams in the Dota 2 arena.

A Thrilling Finale: Yatoro vs. Ame

The much-anticipated face-off between Yatoro and Ame did not disappoint, offering fans one of the most exhilarating Dota 2 matches in recent history. After eight intense games, Team Spirit emerged victorious with a 3-2 win against Xtreme Gaming in Bucharest, Romania.

Team Spirit’s Road to Victory

Team Spirit demonstrated their dominance and skill throughout the tournament. The roster of Yatoro, Larl, Collapse, Mira, and Miposhka showcased why they are the current International (TI) champions. Their journey to the grand final saw them battling through the lower bracket, defeating Team Falcons, one of the strongest rosters this year.


Xtreme Gaming’s Impressive Performance

Despite the loss, Xtreme Gaming had an outstanding run in the tournament. The team, featuring Ame and XinQ, former PSG.LGD stars, went undefeated in all their matches until the grand final. They achieved 2-0 victories against teams like G2.IG and Team Falcons, making their performance noteworthy and commendable.

The Significance of Third-Party Tournaments

The success of the PGL Wallachia highlights the potential of third-party tournaments in the Dota 2 competitive scene. With the Dota Pro Circuit (DPC) in decline, events like PGL Wallachia are stepping up to fill the void, much to the delight of fans and players alike.

A Look at the Grand Final

The grand final was a true test of endurance and skill. After a day packed with eight games, Team Spirit edged out Xtreme Gaming with a 3-2 score. This victory is particularly significant given the high stakes and the formidable opponents they faced.
