It is a very rare sight to behold especially in a world championship stage when 11 Filipinos from four different teams are currently throwing their blood and guts against other foreign elite teams to claim The International’s prestigious Aegis at Key Arena in Seattle.

 

Abed Azel “Abed” Yusop, a 17-year-old Filipino mid lane wonder who started to gain popularity by single-handedly dismantling complexity Gaming using Meepo in last year’s qualifiers for The International, looks to seek redemption by playing alongside Digital Chaos following his absence in TI6.

 

Djardel Dicko “DJ” Mampusti, a Filipino utility veteran who is currently under the team Fnatic, seems to be eager in fulfilling his team’s victory by showcasing his godly timed ward placements, uncanny map awareness and knack of when and when not to engage. However, uncertainties are on their side as sloppy communication tends to surface in certain occasions due to language barrier hovering above Fnatic. Only time will only whether DJ will hoist that elusive Aegis over his shoulders with Fnatic.

 

ExecratioN qualifying for The International is what most diehard Filipino DotA 2 (even DotA 1) fans are waiting for. After several years of trailing to put their feet on the world championship stage, they finally managed to show their team’s worth by scrupulously sweeping teams during this year’s The International qualifiers. Comprised of veterans such as James “CartMaN” Palatolon, Ryan “Bimbo” Jay Qui, Kimuel “Kim0” Rodis, Fernando “Nando” Mendoza, and Ralph Richard “RR” Peano, ExecratioN looks to grab the gold with the help of the undying philosophy that the team has planted in the minds of most Filipino DotA 2 fans – “never say die.”

 

TNC or TheNet.Com, in the eyes of several analysts and fans, is unquestionably the best DotA team that the Philippines has ever produced. After accomplishing an upset against the two-time Major Champions OG in TI6, the team had their first major breakthrough worldwide. They eventually became feared by renowned teams across the globe due to their unpredictable style of ganking mechanics. The team is now composed of Marco Polo “Raven” Fausto, Carlo “Kuku” Palad, Samson Solomon “Sam_ H” Hidalgo, Timothy “Tims” Randrup and the Canadian-born Theeban “1437” as their captain. Coached by the gorgeous-looking Murielle “Kipspul” Kipspul, TNC might just have the strongest tools to finally dig what they’re looking for.

 

As of this writing, only five Filipinos remain following the elimination of Fnatic along with Djardel Dicko “DJ” Mampusti during the Group Stage and ExecratioN during the Main Event.
