DreamLeague Season 22 Sets Records: Team Falcons Triumph and Viewership Soars

DreamLeague Season 22 concluded with remarkable success, marking it as the most-watched event in the series’ history. The online tournament, featuring the world’s top Dota 2 teams vying for a million-dollar prize, achieved record-breaking viewership, making it the second-highest in peak viewership for Dota 2 esports events in 2024 thus far.

Sixteen elite teams participated, including the top four from the EPT Leaderboard and winners of regional qualifications. Notably, Team Liquid, Team Secret, and Tundra Esports from Western Europe faced unexpected setbacks, failing to advance past the initial group stage. This led to a rarity in Dota 2 competition as no Western European team made it to the playoffs.

The final stage saw Xtreme Gaming, Team Spirit, BetBoom Team, and Team Falcons competing, with the latter emerging victorious. Team Falcons clinched the championship by defeating BetBoom Team 3-0 in the grand final, earning a prize of $300,000. This win marks their second major triumph since their formation in November 2023, following their victory in BetBoom Dacha Dubai 2024.
