Somehow the famous players of Blacklist International get to the games for the major. The game with Geek Slate closes the central part of the first round of the regional DPC league. However, the loser in this series will still go to a replay with Talon Esports for the third slot in the major. Still, Blacklist International players should decide everything here and now, becoming vice-champions of the Asian region.
The Blacklist International team defeated serious opponents in this round: Bleed Esports, Fnatic, BOOM Esports, and most importantly, Talon Esports, but there is no desire to see the 23savage team for the second time in this round. Famous players lost to the Execution (0:2) and Team SMG (0:2) teams.
Blacklist International is a new team in the Asian region that has signed a stellar Filipino roster of players: Raven, Karl, Kuku, TIMS, and eyyou. TIMS became the captain, so Kuku could safely do his performance and not fly out on a personal performance.
All the players last season played for different top teams: Fnatic, T1, and BOOM Esports. Eyyou five coached and played for Polaris Esports all previous year, and in 2019 he played with TIMS and Kuku for TNC Predator. That lineup was the flagship of the Asian scene. They got a slot in the elite thanks to this purchase from the RSG team.
The sensational Geek Slate game could have been better at the end of the tour. After four initial victories, two defeats followed. The teams of Talon Esports (0:2) and Team SMG (0:2) defeated the contenders for the vice-championship in the region. Excellent execution and drafts for a quick game have stopped working, but if the guys get together, then they have a good chance of defeating the too-old-fashioned players of Blacklist International.
The legendary Malaysian tag returned to the expanses of the Asian dota after two years of inactivation. And so far, the Filipinos, with a Malaysian and a Mongol, have shown themselves well at the Asian BTS Pro Series Season 13 tournament, where they became vice-champions. Still, it will be complicated for them in the elite. By the way, for reference: we see Geek Slate immediately in the first division thanks to the slot purchased from the Mongols from Lilgun.
By composition: Carry skem can always surprise with non-standard heroes–movies and assemblies, but there is a downside here - he is not the most reliable Carry, but most importantly, he is not the weakest. If we go through the names, skem is the most successful in recent times. All the rest are solid middle-class Asians who are hungry for significant victories.
Expert Betting Tips
If you look at the names, Blacklist International should break the Geek Slate team. Still, Geek Slate players look more confident on the server, and Blacklist International plays slowly and greedily while traditionally conceding in the first maps, making the whole round comebacks with 0:1 on the score.
