Gamers8 Riyadh Masters 2023: Competition between the top Dota 2 players intensifies

After a tense week of play in Riyadh, the 20 competing teams have now been whittled down to 12 for the double-elimination qualifiers.

Until Sunday, all eyes will be on the Saudi capital, which hosts the Riyadh Masters 2023, the last major Dota 2 tournament before The International 2023, which closes the season. For those new to online gaming, Dota 2 is a MOBA (a multiplayer online battle arena game), developed by the company Valve, which is played 5 vs. 5, and is one of the most followed eSports games in the world.

Gaimin Gladiators: the unstoppable force!

The Riyadh Masters 2023 is reaching its peak, and only the mightiest of teams remain to vie for supremacy. Leading the pack is none other than Gaimin Gladiators, the unstoppable force in the Dota 2 scene. They have recently achieved a remarkable feat by becoming only the second team ever to win three consecutive Dota 2 Majors. Currently taking on Team Liquid in a game that is causing a sensation on Twitch with 80,000 live streams, they entered the Riyadh Masters 2023 as red-hot favorites, leaving fans and foes alike wondering if they’ll add yet another trophy to their impressive collection before The International 2023 kicks off.


A fierce competition

But the competition is fierce, and this tournament is far from a one-team show. The remaining 11 contenders are eager to etch their names in Dota 2 history to claim their stake in the $15,000,000 USD prize pool. The distribution of winnings among the participants is as follows: the 1st Place receives $5,000,000 (33.33%), the 2nd Place takes home $2,500,000 (16.67%), the 3rd Place receives $1,700,000 (11.33%), and the 4th Place claims $1,200,000 (8%). The remaining funds will be appropriately divided among the other top contenders.
