“I’m super proud, I don’t know what to say, I’m in awe,” Jonathan “Loda” Berg, Alliance co-owner and Dota 2 team coach posted a video of Alliance’s victory after they became the first European team to qualify for the Kuala Lumpur Major.

Alliance has not attended a Valve event since The International 2016. Before that, the Dota 2 roster was still the members that won TI3. A lot has changed at Alliance since 2016. Loda retired, he became the coach of his team and probably worked a lot behind the scenes to create a roster that could carry on the legacy. of the Alliance. The current roster was completed by the end of November 2017 and while not qualifying for the first season of DPC or TI8, Loda continues to believe in his players. Nearly a year later, the team had a surprise win in the Kuala Lumpur Major qualifier when they defeated Peter “ppd” Dager’s Ninja in Pajamas team with a score of 2-0.
With a convincing win over NiP, Alliance leads in gold and experience in both games in the BO3 series. The team finished game 1 with 38:12 lives and over 25K networth lead, while game 2 completely crushed NiP, leading 30:6 lives and over 30K networth when GG was knocked by an opponent.

The European Qualifiers had three spots in the Kuala Lumpur Major, and although NiP was defeated, the team still had a chance in the losing bracket. To stay hopeful, NiP needs to beat Mango Bay, the team of bOne7 and garter, and then have to beat Liquid or Lithium. The European playoffs are still ongoing.
