PGL Wallachia Playoffs: Teams, Schedule, and Key Information

16. May 2024 by Valentin Pasetti

The first stage of the PGL Wallachia Dota 2 tournament has concluded, revealing the eight teams that will continue their journey in the playoffs. This tournament, the first major Dota 2 event of the year by PGL, features a prize pool of one million dollars. South America’s BOOM Esports secured the last spot for the next round in an intense battle.

Qualified Teams

The teams that have advanced to the playoffs are:

  1. Team Falcons
  2. Team Liquid
  3. Xtreme Gaming
  4. Aurora
  5. Gaimin Gladiators
  6. Team Spirit
  7. G2 x IG
  8. BOOM Esports

Unfortunately, the South American team HEROIC was eliminated on the third day of the competition.

Early Qualifiers and Standout Performances

  • Xtreme Gaming and Team Falcons were the first to secure their places in the next phase. Despite participating with a stand-in (Leon “Nine” Kirilin replacing Stanislav “Malr1ne” Potorak due to visa issues), Team Falcons continues to demonstrate their strength.
  • BOOM Esports, G2 x IG, and Team Liquid were the last to advance. BOOM Esports clinched their spot after a hard-fought 2-1 victory over Shopify Rebellion. Arteezy’s performance on Faceless Void in the third game was lackluster, while the Peruvian player Pakazs showcased his high skill level, giving hope to South American fans.
