Will Old G prevail? WEU DPC Closed Qualifier to pit Old G, Team Bald Reborn, and more
Feels like deja vu. Old G is once again a step away from joining the Dota Pro Circuit but can they make it out of the Closed Qualifier this time around?
The renowned players on Old G are on fire as they zoomed past the first Open Qualifier undefeated. The revamped lineup, with N0tail stepping back and new names joining, absolutely annihilated the Western Europe OQ#1. The team advance to the next and final phase. Old G will clash against seven other teams in the WEU DPC Closed Qualifier where the top two teams qualify for Division II.
Old G arrives in WEU DPC Closed Qualifier - again
After falling short in Tour 1 DPC, Old G returns for vengeance. The team had a roster shift ahead of the season with Johan "N0tail" Sundstein stepping back from the competitive scene. Arif "MSS" Anwar, who was Old G's pos 4, also departed the team to join WildCard Gaming. For the second season of the year, the former Team Secret offlaner, Resolut1on, and former analyst of T1, Kitrak, join Old G and fill in the vacant spots.

Here is Old G's complete roster for Tour 2 DPC:
- Volodymyr "Noone" Minenko
- Topias "Topson" Taavitsainen
- Roman "Resolut1on" Fomynok
- Sébastien "Ceb" Debs
- Kartik "Kitrak" Rathi
Old G joined the first Open Qualifier for Tour 2 DPC and defeated KZ Team, Plasma1337x, and Betrayed. They grabbed a 2-0 win for all series and convincingly grabbed a slot in the Closed Qualifier, alongside Betrayed. Both teams join Team Bald Reborn, the renowned stack under streamer, Gorgc, in the CQ.
The Closed Qualifier will be stacked with more teams from the rest of the Open Qualifiers. The second OQ occurs on March 15-16 and the third OQ occurs on March 17-18. After the OQs conclude, the winners from each round will clash in the Closed Qualifier which takes place on March 19-22.
Who awaits in Division II?
Old G, once again, is only a step away from officially joining the Dota Pro Circuit. The team needs to finish in the top 2 in the Closed Qualifier to make it into Division II.
The WEU DPC Division II lineup for Tour 2 looks incredibly stacked! There are notable organizations and powerhouses such as Team Secret, Alliance, and Into The Breach. If Old G makes it, the competition would be even crazier and Division II will be one amazing spectacle.
