Despite not being a DPC event, ESL One Hamburg looks to be one of the coolest Dota 2 tournaments this year. It starts in just a couple of days from now in Hamburg, Germany. Apart from having a pretty cool $300K prize pool, we will be able to see some of the best teams in the world right now. The newest addition to the competition is Beastcoast.

The organization announced just a few days ago that they will be acquiring Team Anvorgesa. Previously, the South American team played under the “Infamous” flag during TI 9 where they played amazingly and even broke the record for the highest-placed South American team at TI.
Beastcoast is doing amazing in the qualifiers for MDL Chengdu so far. In fact, they are still unbeaten, which is a clear sign of their current state.
Apart from Beastcoast, nearly all top teams right now are going to be in Hamburg. What’s even more amazing is that there are still two weeks until the event actually starts. This means that we will see one more powerhouse’s name announced shortly. Here is the current list as of today - Vici Gaming, TNC Predator, Virtus.Pro, Ninjas in Pyjamas, Team Liquid, Beastcoast, Gambit Esports, Vikin.GG, Fighting Pepegas, Invictus Gaming, and Geek Fam.
Ther are rumors that ESL will announce the last team today as well. However, they still have not done it yet.
