Playoffs overview: What to watch

It has been a long time since Tundra Esports and PSG Quest last made it to the playoffs of a major tournament. With Zai stepping in as the general manager, Tundra has successfully gone through every qualifier they've participated in and now made it to the playoffs. It would be exciting to see their improvement.

Meanwhile, Team Liquid didn’t perform well in the previous DreamLeague S22 tournament. Even though they beat their Kryptonite Gaimin Gladiators in the group stage, they almost tied with every team after that. We would like to see if they are back in good shape now.
