Unfortunately, all fans didn’t wish to see a match between the two teams at the Monaco Vibes in the World Cup. Both teams failed to reach quarterfinals after defeating in the past eight games versus Virtus.pro and former HellRaisers respectively.
Instead, we get a fight with two Eastern European rivals and they’ll surely have the look of EEU Dota Pro Circuit 2023 (DPC 2023).
Maltese in quarterfinals recap at Pinnacle Cup – a series of Vibes 1.
Since the second tour of the EUE DPC 2023 recently begins, HR and VP are familiar names that can’t be introduced. While HR qualified for the Berlin Major 2023, VP does not shabby at all for placing fourth place as well as for the International Champions League.
The quarterfinals at the Pinnacle Cup is Malta’s 1st o’clock.
The pinnacle match proved solidly matched by Western rivals. VPs successfully defeated OG, which qualified for Berlin Major, proves that the EEU scene flourishes with young and rising talents as well. Despite a reputation for decade-long namesake, VPs identifie an unseasoned roster of new blood that has not yet debuted in majors, but also the International Championships.
Yet they had a hard time running for their money with an unorthodox draft, instead of choosing a heavy team fight-oriented formation that used to favour fast-paced cheese picks such as Broodmother and Terrorblade. This reaffirms that the new VP isn’t just another meta-abusing team that can’t play around with a more versatile hero pool.
Old G needs to do better.
HRs win over Old G was not ordinary. Sure, the OG supporters, we included, hoped we could see a clash between Old G and OG, but HR doesn’t just allow Old G to advance that easily. Since VP, HR was very comfortable with cheese picks that are strong heroes that have the winning condition if they have a good game. This gives HR an explosive edge over Old G, which didn’t get to grips with HRs momentum.

The semifinals between VP and HR is sure to be a good rematch for both teams. VP is becoming the underdog in the match and is going to face the winner of DPC 2023 in the competition. HR defeated them both earlier than it was.
Their performances against OG are a reminder of that VP is not just another run-in-the-mill team. Even though VP is likely to lose this game against HR, we could anticipate that VP will challenge the likes of Team BetBoom for major slots next Tour.
After all, while HR, VP, and Team Spirit become formidable teams, BetBoom has again lost in the second round of the pinnacle Cup with Malta Vibes.
It looks like HellRaisers is the favorite and has bigger odds of winning at 5,5. In spite of the fact that the gamblers have a heartbeat right now, betting on VP isn’t a bad wager at x5.5, regardless of how well they compared to other powerhouses recently at the pinnacle competition in Malta.
