DreamLeague S23 playoffs overview: What to watch

Since this is the first top-tier event after the major 7.36 update, every match will be chaotic and exciting. If you have enough time, we recommend watching all the matches you're interested in. If you need to choose, here are our suggestions:

  • Team Falcons vs Xtreme Gaming rematch: XG sent Falcons to the lower bracket back in the last PGL event. But this time XG will meet the full squad of Falcons.
  • Azure Ray vs HEROIC: Both of them still have the chance to qualify for Riyadh Masters 2024 now. The team that gets eliminated means that they need to fly home for open qualifiers.
