Who will play in PMWI 2023?

So far, there is no description of the PMWI 2023 participating teams. According to Liquipedia, currently two teams from China (PEL Spring) have confirmed to get a slot and the PMPL team or other teams have not been confirmed to play there.

Last year, the MORPH Team, which acquired the ION Esports team as the 2022 PMPL ID Spring champions, immediately got a place there. PMPL ID Spring 2023 Champion, BOOM Esports actually still has a big chance to play there but everything will return to PMSL results.

Generally, apart from being taken from each PMPL champion in each region, PMWI gives invitations to certain teams chosen by the organizers. For example, Bigetron Red Aliens won an invitation slot to the Afterparty tournament.

We’ll just wait for the complete update. Hopefully PMWI 2023 will be more explosive and more successful than the previous year.
