Which Teams Are the Favorites of the Dota 2 Tournament?
Dota 2 is one of the most unpredictable games in eSports, as the game requires all the teams to be knowledgeable, skillful, wise, and experienced in crucial moments in each match. And with the upcoming tournament, it is not surprising that there are favored teams that would likely win the tournament, and here are the top three favorite teams:
They are the defending champions of The International. Also, they are one of the most unpredictable qualified teams in terms of drafting and how they manage to put a lead in the early game and snowball ‘til the other enemy calls for GG.
They are the most well-rounded team with a lot of experience from different tournaments. They are known for their aggressive draft and playstyle, and they are, without a doubt, the number 1 team in China.
They are the underdogs of the tournament as they don’t have any past exposure to major tournaments last year. They are the champions of the BTS Pro Series Season 13: Southeast Asia. And they are one of the most respected teams in Southeast Asia as they are only a few teams with a whole Filipino squad.
