The North American beasts have consistently placed in the top three in DPC NA 2023 Division I. They placed fourth at The Lima Major, third at DreamLeague Season 19, but fared poorly at the ESL One Berlin Major.
As a result, their hard work has earned Shopify Rebellion a spot at The International 2023 (TI12), the biggest event in the history of esports, boasting the highest prize pool.

Consistent performances throughout the majority of the DPC NA season, Majors and other third party events, has earned SR a spot at TI12.
They finished second in DPC NA Tour 1 and Tour 2, and first in DPC NA Tour 3. They are also the only North American team to perform particularly well at international events as compared to their peers.
Shopify Rebellion also secured their spot at the Bali Major 2023 after finishing in first-place in the DPC NA Tour 3, and will next be seen participating at DreamLeague Season 20, slated to start in less than one week from now.

A top two finish at DreamLeague S20 will secure Shopify Rebellion a spot at the $15 million Riyadh Masters -- good practice ground before The International 2023.
Nonetheless, Shopify Rebellion has secured their TI12 invite and will compete against the best teams at the crown jewel Dota 2 event.
