TNC Predator and Team Adroit will face each other in the ESL One Birmingham 2020: Southeast Asian tournament. The ESL One Birmingham 2020: Southeast Asia is a $40,000 USD online tournament featuring sixteen SEA teams. The teams play in a round-robin group stage. The top two teams advance to the playoffs upper bracket, while the third and fourth-placed teams move to the lower bracket of the playoffs.
As one of the top SEA Dota 2 teams, TNC Predator has left a mark on the international scene. Players like Gabbi and Armel with March as the team coach bring a depth and versatility to the team’s performance. SEA Dota 2 can often be extremely aggressive and heroes are active all around the map. TNC Predator is the favorite to win this match; although they will face tough competition from Team Adroit.
Team Adroit’s Dota 2 roster has a relatively unknown Dota 2 roster. The Phillipine players have put up some impressive performances recently. Their recent matches include a 2-1 victory over Fnatic, a SEA powerhouse. Fnatic DJ had a strong start to the series when he got his favorite Tiny. With Spider Legs and fast farm, DJ was able to control the tempo of the game. However, Adroit quickly adjusted and changed their playstyle, countering Fnatic in the next two games.
