ONE Esports Dota 2 SEA League features all the top teams of the region. Among them, I would like to highlight Fnatic, who are the main event favorites. Fnatic has a solid roster of players who are competing together for quite a long period. The team is starting the League with 4 successive victories behind the shoulders. This international team is currently dominating over the SEA region, having a strong chance to notch a victory in BTS Pro Series Season 2 which will come to an end on June 20. DJ and the teammates are ready to crush the region competitors. The only thing that can prevent Fnatic from finishing first is the event format which implies too many casual matches.
Geek Fam is probably the second-best SEA team in 2020. The team has no big victories in the records, but online tournament format is on the Geek Fam side. The guys are used to playing lots of online matches, so they take it easier than more successful SEA competitors like Fnatic and TNC Predator. The “Geeks” are definitely in top-3 SEA teams at the moment, but it is trophies that define the best and Geek Fam are yet to get a big one.
TNC Predator was a solid player on the LAN stage. However, unlike Geek Fam, they take it extremely hard to compete online. It seems like the team which won MDL Chengdu Major could not find the motivation to compete with regional opponents online. Looking at the roster, I would say that TNC is going to finish in top-3, but will the guys put on 100% performance or will they rather keep waiting for big offline tournaments?
