All eyes on Europe
Europe is by far the most competitive region in Dota 2. Multiple, TI champions throughout its decade-long history have come from Europe. Team OG, Nigma (formerly Team Liquid), and Alliance are just some of the Europe Upper Division teams.
We also shouldn’t forget Clement “Puppey” Ivanov, the captain of the first TI champion team, Natus Vincere, currently leading Europe’s strongest team, Team Secret. Filling the empty slots are Team Liquid, Vikin.gg, mudgolems, and Chicken Fighters.
While we’ve seen much of mudgolems and the Vikinggs in the latter part of last year, Chicken Fighters are a brand new squad. The roster is consists of three former NiP players (CharlieDota, Supream, Era) and two former 5men players in Chessie and Xibbe.
