Dota 2 Esports Old G Did Not Qualify For DPC 2023 WEU Winter Tour Division II
Dota 2 Esports
Despite coming close twice, Old G failed to qualify for Division II of the Dota 2 Esports Pro Circuit (DPC) 2023 Western Europe (WEU) Winter Tour. Old G were one step away from qualifying for the second level earlier today. However, the squad was defeated earlier today in the Upper Bracket Finals of the Closed Qualifiers by the Ooredoo Thunders.
- Old G were unable to qualify for the DPC 2023 WEU Winter Tour’s second tier.
- The squad had already lost to Ooredoo Thunders, but it would have one more opportunity to qualify through the Lower Bracket Finals.
- However, Old G was unable to take the necessary last step, falling 2-0 against Monaspa.
While Old G had one more chance to qualify for Division II if it defeated Monaspa in the Lower Bracket Finals for the Dota 2 Esports, its opponents went on to beat them decisively 2-0, therefore ending their aspirations.

Old G is unable to compete in Division II
While many thought that Old G would win the series, some felt that Monaspa’s players had a chance to pull off an upset against the living legends on Dota 2 Esports.
Monaspa dominated the early game, as the core pair of Lasha “Nande” Narsia’s Morphling and Irakli “W1sh-” Peranidze’s Tinker were able to farm to their maximum capacity. However, when the combo of Volodymyr “Noone” Minenko’s Slark and Topias “Topson” Taavitsainen’s Sniper managed to balance the scales in the mid-game, Old G gradually recovered the edge in terms of networth and experience. Unfortunately, Old G’s advantages were in naught, as Monaspa won Game One after 35 minutes thanks to a key teamfight.
Game No. 2
The early game favored Monaspa once again, as their key heroes were able to pick off kill after kill in the laning phase. As the game progressed until the mid-game, Old G put up a fight on Dota 2 Esports, attempting to prolong the game so that its primary heroes could completely unleash their late-game potential. While Old G was effective, Nande’s Phantom Assassin gave Monaspa the upper hand in terms of damage output.
Monaspa won the series 2-0 after the 45th minute, denying Old G the opportunity to compete in Division II of the DPC 2023 WEU Winter Tour.
Following the series, the WEU region’s Closed Qualifiers completed with Ooredoo Thunders and Monaspa claiming their own Division II places for the following DPC 2023 WEU Winter Tour. Old G for the Dota 2 Esports, on the other hand, will have to wait until the end of the DPC 2023 WEU Winter Tour to make another effort at qualifying for Division II.
