ESL One’s DreamLeague Season 21 is underway. It is the final pitstop for teams before The International 2023. With the International 2023 around the corner, it won't be a surprise if teams hide their strategies.

Regardless of their shenanigans, fans can look at how good the players are to figure out how strong a team is. The following players are the ones to keep a close eye on in DreamLeague Season 21.

Topson - Tundra Esports 

DreamLeague Season 21 is Topias "Topson" Taavitsainen’s Tundra Esports debut.

The back-to-back International has been away from the scene for some time, but he has been training for his debut return.


Topson is known for pioneering a new play style to play the midlane. With Topson on their team, all eyes are on The Internationals 2022 champions and what they can accomplish.

The former midlaner of Tundra also has a play style similar to Topson. Now, with Topson on their team, all eyes are on The Internationals 2022 champions and what they can accomplish. With their revamped roster, Tundra is bringing havoc in the scrims.

Yatoro - Team Spirit

The International 2021 Champion, Illya "Yatoro" Mulyarchuk, is one of the best safelaners in the scene.

He has a versatile hero pool, which Team Spirit use efficiently to make their draft unpredictable. He played a crucial part in the team’s run at The Riyadh Masters 2023, where they emerged victorious.

Yatoro has an efficient farming pattern and hardly cracks under pressure, making him a massive threat to his enemies.

Mind Control - OG

Ivan "MinD_ContRoL" Ivanov will be playing on OG as a loan in DreamLeague Season 21. MC is a force in the offlane. He previously stood in for OG at the Berlin Major.

MC was a different beast then. He made several crucial calls and made multiple game-winning plays. His efforts enabled OG to secure a 5th-6th place at the tournament.

He dominated his lanes and made tenacious moves, forcing the opposing team's reaction. His moves created space across the map for his other cores. As an offlaner, he has years of experience, and with Sébastien "Ceb" Debs alongside him, the player may reach new heights in the tournament.

Dyrachyo - Gaimin Gladiators 

Anton "dyrachyo" Shkredov is the top safelaner in the scene at the moment. He likes to push his limits as a safelaner, allowing him to get better trades in objectives or farm.

The success of his playstyle is reflected in Gaimin Gladiators’s accomplishments, as they nearly won all the trophies this season.

Darachyo often likes to play micro-prioritized heroes as it allows him to push the lanes and farm, which is an efficient way to divert his opponents. He is known for his Terrorblade.

Gabbi - Entity

Kim "Gabbi" Santos is the newest addition to Entity. Despite him taking on the new role in the team, Gabbi proved he is a versatile player.

Playing heroes like Doom and Underlord, Gabbi created a ton of space for his core while taking some farm for himself. Gabbi massively enhanced the team’s performance in The International Qualifiers as he helped them secure the ticket.

The DreamLeague Season 21 features a million-dollar prize pool with a new format. The tournament includes twelve teams and will take place from the 18th of September to the 24th of September.
