PGL Wallachia features an exciting broadcast talent list packed with big names!

It's the first Dota 2 event of the year for PGL, and they want to get all the eyes on them. Now that qualifiers and over and the tournament is around the corner, the PGL Wallachia talent lineup has been revealed.

The announcement includes two desk hosts, four analysts, eight casters, and two interesting roles: reporter and interviewer. Get to know them here!

  • Dominik "Lacoste" Stipić (Caster)

Something worth nothing is the return of BanKs to the Dota scene. His name is appearing as "interviewer" for the PGL Wallachia talent lineup. Let's not forget that he was also the stage host at the PGL Arlington Major, back in 2022. On the other hand, Tsunami as a reporter should be in charge of the content made on the city and some sketches with the players.

For their qualifiers stage, PGL made a revolutionary move, inviting community casters to take over the show. To get an invitation, there was a simple form to fill and, if selected, you could stream all the games in your personal channel. This included full access to the lobbies and the chance for new names to come out.

Except for Johnxfire, who covered the SEA Closed Qualifiers, none of the names on the list above were selected from this community-exclusive broadcast.

More about the PGL Wallachia

PGL Wallachia is the first of their eight millionaire Dota 2 events for the 2024-2026 period. Sixteen teams will be competing for the biggest portion of the $1M prizepool. Let's not forget that without the DPC system, teams depend on their year's results to get a direct invite for The International. Therefore, there is a silent goal all the pros are chasing aside from the money.

Ten teams received direct invites, while the remaining six battled through regional qualifiers to secure their spots. PGL Wallachia also marks a surprising first for this year: it's the first major international tournament to skip MENA qualifiers. Interested in the qualified teams? Click here!
