A major wouldn't seem complete without an appearance by the European Juggernauts - Team Liquid. The TI7 champions rolled into the new Pro Circuit 2017-2018 season as the team to beat and they have certainly earned such a reputation, continuing to maintain a tight grip on the competitive scene. The team has earned TI8 qualifying points in all three of the events they have appeared in so far - gathering a total of 1350 or 450 per player.
In the EU/CIS DreamLeague Season 8 regional qualifier, Team Secret took the top place with an 11:3 score, Team Liquid right behind them with 9:3 record so far with one series left to complete. Two more teams will earn their spot, at least one will be from the CIS region.
The league is still in progress until November 16th with a total of 4 more series left to be completed. Virtus.Pro and Na'Vi are both primed as next in line. OG have an uphill battle ahead but are not completely out of the running. Vega Squadron, Team Empire, and MidorFeed have already been eliminated.
