The Top contenders

Overall, the teams that are most likely to win this tournament are AntiHype (Team Russia), EHOME and Keen Gaming. The second and third of these teams are established Chinese powerhouses while the first one is made up of 4 Virtus.pro members (Solo, RAMZES666, 9pasha and RodjER) and 1 very strong midlaner playing for Effect (iLTW). Virtus.pro is currently sitting at number 1 in the Dota Pro Circuit rankings, so in theory it should get at least a top 3 finish at this event.
