Both teams are still undefeated in the China DPC.
The Dota 2 Bali Major officially welcomes the first teams to qualify - Team Aster and PSG.LGD. Both Chinese teams delivered an undefeated performance and currently hold a 5-0 scoreline. Team Aster and PSG.LGD will face off at the end of China (CN) Dota Pro Circuit (DPC) Tour 3 regional league.
Team Aster shines with Emperor SumaiL
Team Aster has always been a powerhouse of the region, not missing a single Major for the past few seasons. But with the addition of Sumail "SumaiL" Hassan in the midlane, Aster popped off remarkably. The team now holds a 5-0 win streak, only dropping a single match against Xtreme Gaming. But they have yet to complete their DPC journey, with Invictus Gaming and PSG.LGD waiting to clash against the unique lineup.
Nevertheless, this is the first time SumaiL officially qualifies for a Dota 2 Major since WePlay AniMajor in 2021. The king or now, the emperor is definitely back and we'll see him alongside Team Aster on the Bali Major stage next month.
PSG.LGD looks solid with niu
Li "niu" Kongbo, the new offlaner for PSG.LGD seems to be meshing well with his new team in Tour 3 DPC. He formerly played for Vici Gaming but with PSG.LGD, he will finally attend his first-ever Valve Major. LGD has beaten five teams including the prominent Azure Ray. However, they have yet to face the Chinese strongest contenders, namely Xtreme Gaming and Team Aster.
