Invictus Gaming and Keen Gaming will face each other in the DPL-CDA Professional League Season 1. The DPL-CDA League features eight CDA teams and two teams from the promotion league. The tournament has a ¥500,000 (approx. $70,486 USD) prize pool and features some of the best Chinese teams in action. Teams get an additional ¥4,500 (approx. $634 USD) per win while the loser of the match gets ¥500 (approx. $70.50 USD).
Invictus Gaming is 6-2 in the online tournament and are in the top three. Despite featuring a lineup with young players with little experience, Invictus Gaming has won several series against the best Chinese Dota 2 teams.
Keen Gaming is near the bottom of the table as they are 2-6. One of their victories is due to a forfeit win (Newbee). Keen Gaming does not have the momentum, neither do they have the results to be able to take on a team like Invictus Gaming.
