The competitive season will be very busy in 2023. Almost the entire year will be full of big events but spring stands out especially.
With the arrival of the first heat, the first top-tier Dota 2 and League of Legends will be hosted. The MOBA game by Valve will provide Dota 2 matches at two Major tournaments and we still have LoL.
If you schedule the vacation for the period from March to May and do not want to miss the main events of spring, you are in the right place. We have collected the main tourist direction of spring for the MOBA games fans.
The first stop is in Peru: The Lima Major 2023
Lima, Peru, will be the first stop for esports tourists in 2023. The debut Dota 2 Major tournament in 2023 will take place there.
The Lima Major 2023 will sum up the first tour of the updated DPC season in 2023. The championship will begin on February 22 but the main event will be presented on the first days of March.
18 teams will be fighting for 500,000 dollars and 1,900 DPC points from February 22 to March 5. 4D Esports will be the organizer of The Lima Major 2023 but this is not the most interesting thing.
The Lima Major 2023 will be remarkable for becoming the first tournament in the history of the region. Before 2023, South America had not hosted Dota 2 tournaments of this scale but thanks to the rise of the scene over the past few years, especially in 2022, it deserved it.

Having enjoyed matches in Lima, we recommend booking tickets to the strict Berlin. The Berlin Major 2023 will be carried out there from April 26 to May 7.
