Infamous is the first team for DreamLeague S8 Major

Infamous fought in the SA qualifier of DreamLeague S8. They earned a ticket for the Major after beating all opponents in the double bracket.

Four teams took part in the South American Qualifier, three invited and one from the open qualifier. Infamous had the upper hand against all enemies in the Bo3 dual elimination bracket, winning all encounters without ever dropping in the lowers’ rounds.

In the Grand Finals they faced Digital Chaos.SA, and claimed a spot for the LAN event with a 2-1 score.

DreamLeague Season 8 will take place from December 1st to 4th, featuring eight teams battling for a $1,000,000 prize and 1,500 Pro Circuit points. No teams received a direct invite, but all must earn the right to participate through the regional qualifier.

Infamous vs Digital Chaos.SA Bo3 recap

Both teams were extremely aggressive during the first match: multiple ganks and teamfights happened from the very start - after 17 minutes there were already 18 deaths recorded.

No one gained a real advantage in the first 58 minutes of the game, but afterwards a series of successful teamfight brought tons of gold in Infamous’ hands. They won the match only 10 minutes later with a 33k lead.

The MVP was Mariano "Papita" Caneda, who played a perfect game with Death Prophet, scoring 15-4-19. He even built a Refresher Orb to have two consecutive ultimates at his disposal - a great fit for the final pushes.

They maintained the lead during all the match, notably thanks to the ganks of Farith "Matthew" Puente on Bounty Hunter, who brought extra gold in the team’s hands with his tracks during the mid game.

The third game was a total domination for Infamous: 23k net worth lead and 33-14 score. They won two decisive teamfights at 5 and 8 minutes, during which DC.SA lost eight of their heroes.

Papita played another great match, this time on Puck. Also Alonso "Kotarō Hayama" León on Juggernaut, and Christian "Accel" Cruz on Jakiro massivelycontributed to the team’s victory.

The offensive trilane composed of Jakiro, Winter Wyvern, and Clockwerk punished the enemy Sven, who died at 1 minute into the game, and could not properly farm.
