The Dota 2 Last Chance Qualifier (LCQ) kicks off on 8th October 2022 at the SunTec Stadium in Singapore and will be the final showdown ahead of the prestigious The International 2022 (TI11). Most importantly, the Dota 2 LCQ will determine which teams will occupy the two remaining spots at TI11.

Among the teams competing include multiple prominent names like Team Secret and Vici Gaming but also former TI winners Natus Vincere and Team Liquid. As fans prepare for the most significant esports event in Dota 2, many ask which two teams will advance to The International 11 Group Stage.

On 4th October 2022, in Episode 41 of The OG Monkey Business Show with OG Esports' Chief Executive JMR Luna, back-to-back TI winners Sébastien "Ceb" Debs and Johan "N0tail" Sundstein shared their predictions ahead of the Last Chance Qualifier games.

When asked how they thought the Dota 2 LCQ would play out, Ceb answered, "[Xtreme Gaming] and [Virtus.Pro] might be very strong; [Team Liquid] could be super strong, too. T1 could be strong. So you have four teams that are contenders."

Ceb further elaborated, saying that Group B of the Dota 2 Last Chance Qualifier looked "pretty slacked." Commenting on Group A, he also noted that Nouns have been playing "surprisingly good" and brought "some big upsets"; however, Ceb couldn't comment on Tempest, citing that he didn't know much about them.

Later in the discussion, N0tail chimed in, claiming that Team Secret did not look competitive in the Dota 2 Regional Qualifiers for Europe Division. "Secret didn't look as strong as they could have in the European Qualifiers." Then, JMR Luna pressed the Dota 2 stars for their final two Last Chance Qualifier predictions.

"I'm going to go with Xtreme Gaming; that is one [...] well, I gotta pick T1. I refuse to pick anybody else," Ceb said. "Sorry for the others, but you're not getting in," he added. N0tail doubled down on Ceb's predictions, noting that he would "say the same."

Ceb clarified that he doesn't think T1 would make it to The International 2022 Group Stage; however, he noted that they "can make it," adding that he is a lot more confident in Xtreme Gaming than he is in T1.

"I wanted to say [Team Liquid], but they've been disappointing so many times in a row now that I don't think they are favorites anymore at this time," Ceb concluded.

So there you have it. OG Esports' Ceb and N0tail think that Xtreme Gaming and T1 can win the Dota 2 Last Chance Qualifier. Do you agree with their predictions? Let me know by sharing your thoughts with me on Twitter.

The Dota 2 Last Chance Qualifier runs from 8th to 12th October 2022 and will be broadcast live on PGL's official Twitch and YouTube channels.
