DPC NA 2021/22 Tour 3 Division 1 is going to be a bloodbath with just two slots to qualify for the PGL Arlington Major.
All eyes will be on the usual suspects. TSM.FTX practically guaranteed their TI11 berth after finishing second at the recent Stockholm Major, but will look to continue building on their stellar international play with local dominance.
Evil Geniuses, who got back to their winning ways last Tour, unfortunately faltered at the Major as the first eliminated team. With Tal “Fly” Aizik back in the mix, however, EG still has a strong chance to qualify for TI via the DPC rankings.
Quincy Crew, who lost out on the Major last Tour, has looked to the past to pick up one of its strongest rosters, along with new captain Adrian “Fata” Trinks. Expect more wacky supports to come out from the Crew — and a tough road ahead to catch up to their contemporaries.
Wildcard Gaming, Nouns, The Cut, 5RATFORCESTAFF, and felt round out the rest of the NA scene. Can any of these teams surprise the big three?
