The actual event itself will be held from May 4th to May 12th at the Disney Events Arena in Paris, France. If you want to grab your tickets be sure to check the of the tournament.
. Europe, CIS and South America qualifiers have already concluded, leaving China, Southeast Asia and North America to decide all their winners. The LAN event will unfold May 4th to May 12th at the Disney Events Arena from Paris, France. The tickets for live audience are already available on the MDL Disneyland® Paris Major official website.
As the dust settled from the Group Stage, the top two teams from each group had to go toe to toe in the playoffs.
Keen Gaming and PSG.LGD
The first Chinese representative at the MDL Disneyland Paris Major will be Keen Gaming. They were able to secure their spot after finishing second in Group B. After that, surprisingly, they were able to deal with the DreamLeague Season 11 Major Champions – Vici Gaming.
Keen Gaming are becoming more and more consistent with their recent performance. They finished top 6 in DreamLeague Season 11 and now, they made their way through the qualifiers.
Even though Vici Gaming got eliminated, they have nothing to worry about because they have already secured their spot for TI 9. And as it turned out later, they were able to secure the third place for these qualifiers. On the other hand, Keen gaming still needs a little more points in order to do that.
The second Chinese team that will go to Paris is PSG.LGD. They are finally back with their full roster after Lu “Maybe” Yao returned from this vacation. The Chinese powerhouse had no troubles getting the first place in Group B and then dealing with Newbee in a quick 2-0.
Both KG and LGD are one of the “hottest” teams to look out for in terms of betting. It seems like the Chinese Dota 2 scene is slowly becoming stronger again after a few years of decline. This all means that if you decide to bet, going for the top Chinese teams is probably a good idea in most cases.

The third and final team from this region that will go to Paris is the DreamLeague Season 11 and StarLadder Champions – Vici Gaming. The Chinese powerhouse had to qualify the hard way – through the lower bracket. They ended up there after the loss against Keen Gaming in the first match of the playoffs.
Despite that, Paparazzi and Co. were able to bounce back after a win against EHOME and Royal with a quick 2-0.
It will be very interesting to see what will happen in the MDL Disneyland Paris Major. If the Chinese teams continue to show the same performance, TI 9 will become an even more attractive event. We have a few more days before we know all the names of the participants in the Major. It will definitely be a must-watch event for all esports fans out there. What’s more, MDL Disneyland Paris Major will also be a good place to try your betting luck.
