Dota 2 competitions have resumed their usual schedule, and the BTS Pro Series Season 13 SEA is the current event taking place.
Following the recent announcement made by Beyond the Summit that they most likely would not be holding any Dota 2 events during the upcoming season, this came as a welcome surprise for fans. No matter what, we are going to make the most of the exciting scene of Southeast Asian talent while BTS is still around.
Format and teams for the 13th season of the BTS Pro Series Southeast Asia Tour
After its thirteenth incarnation since the year 2020, the BTS Pro Series is so well established that it does not require one. The BTS Pro Series is a full-fledged format that includes both a group stage and playoffs, which is one of the reasons why it is held in such high respect. The best-of-two single round-robin format is used for the group stage, while the best-of-three format is used for the playoffs (except the best-of-five grand finals).
Even more intriguing are the 10 teams that will be participating, since they include some regulars from the Dota Pro Circuit (DPC). Going into the group stage, Fnatic, Execration, Army Geniuses, and Lilgun all have a good chance of being the favorites of the fans. On the other hand, we were unprepared for the comeback of Geek Family of all orgs. The Geek Fam organization has been defunct since the year 2020, although during its active days, it was responsible for the debuts of several notable athletes.
Notable among them are Carlo “Kuku” Palad, Matthew “Whitemon” Filemon, and Kenny “Xepher” Deo, all of whom once played for Team 1.
In addition, Cheng “NothingToSay” Jin Xiang, who is a central midfielder for PSG at the moment.
LGD was also a member of Geek Fam, but during a period of Geek Fam’s history that was far earlier.
In addition to these great namesakes, there are also newbies who are obscure to most people and may have potential that has not yet been fully realized. Neon Atomic, XERXIA, SPAWN Team, Unity Gaming, and Purple Paradox are the five teams who are still in the competition.
A BRAND NEW DAY OF PROMISING TALENT AND YOUNG ATHLETES
It might come as a surprise to you to learn that the amateur teams are serious competitors in BTS Pro Series Season 13 Southeast Asia. During the first day of the tournament, SPAWN and Atomic were able to give the veteran DPC mainstays a run for their money.
Atomic was able to steal a game against Army Geniuses and Lilgun thanks to a strong draft performance. When viewed from above, it’s clear that this one is focused on team fights and has amazing potential for scaling. For example, when Atomic handed out mid Mars, AG was apparently taken aback since they had assumed it was an offlane pick.
Even while they probably didn’t plan for the mind game that would be involved in this situation, they gave careful thought to how they would respond to AG’s hard carry Lifestealer by selecting Slardar as their last option. As Atomic became more confident with their Naga and Mars choices, it obscured the fact that the Silencer was the true crown jewel of their draft. The assistance that Silencer provided led to battles that had a significant impact, which was essential in dismantling Lilgun’s line-up.
SPAWN appears to be another possibility in the BTS Pro Series S13 SEA who is taking the competition by surprise. SPAWN was also victorious over Lilgun. When combined with their synergy, their snowballing tactics that deal area-of-effect magic damage and their hefty snowballing tactics make for a lethal mix.
CONFIDENTIAL FNATIC ROSTER
Fnatic has not yet completed the process of finalizing its lineup, despite the fact that other teams are now competing in the group stage. They won’t play their first game until Day 4, thus only time will tell which players will make up Fnatic’s forthcoming line-up for their next showdown. Late in the season, FNC was unable to generate much buzz at either the BTS Pro Series 12 or The International.
To review, we already know that they let go of their hard carry and offlane players, Marc “Raven” Fausto and Anucha “Jabz” Jirawong, respectively. The departure of Jabz was a significant event, in contrast to the departure of Raven, which may be explained by the fact that most shuffles include the replacement of hard-carry players. In addition to being the captain of Fnatic, Jabz is known as the architect of reliable Enigma offlane drafts.
In light of the fact that Jaunuel “Jaunuel” Arcilla is now Fnatic’s hard support player, it is quite unlikely that he will take on the role of captain, which is generally reserved for pos5 supports. There were only two possible candidates for the role of captain. First of all, although Djardel “DJ” Mampusti, the pos4 support for Fnatic is well-known for his prowess in drafts, he had a secondary role in the team’s drafting selections during the previous season.
Or, we can anticipate the addition of a new offlane player who will also serve as the team’s captain and drafter. And currently, the only limited offlane player who is also a captain is Kuku, who is a free agent. Kuku is the only player in this category. The rumor mills have been serving out amazing roster rumors as of late, but the major revelation of Fnatic’s impending line-up for the BTS Pro Series S13 SEA will definitely take place in the near future.
