Brace yourself, because The International 7 is coming soon this August. Organised by Valve Corporation annually, the tournament has gathered a strong following of Dota 2 gamers from across seven continents, forming professional teams in order to compete and to win the prize pool of over $20 million.
Making Malaysians proud are the 4 Malaysians who are going to compete in this prestige tournament with different teams, and we are honour to feature them here and also wishing them all the best in TI7.
1. Ah Fu (LGD. Forever Young)
Initially playing with WG.Unity, Ahfu parted ways with the team and went on to join LGD Forever Young in a trial basis before The International 7. The risk paid off as he was exceptional good during TI Qualifiers and went on to book a spot in the TI7 main event. Hopefully we can see more of his supporting role shone during the tournament as below:
2. Ah Jit (Fnatic)
Similar with Ahfu, Ah Jit also parted ways with WG.Unity and joined Ohaiyo’s Fnatic team before The International 7. Displaying exceptional skills during the game as a carry, Fnatic looks strong and dominated the TI7 Qualifiers before losing out to TNC at the leaderboard. However, Fnatic still qualified after defeating Clutch Gamers during the playoffs.
3. Ohaiyo (Fnatic)
Originally from the legendary Orange Team who stunned the Dota world by taking third place during The International 3, Ohaiyo is the Malaysian veteran Dota 2 player who has vast amount of international experience under his belt and will be leading his Fnatic team to compete for the title in this year’s International.
4. MidOne (Team Secret)
Fan-favourite, MidOne is no foreign name to the Dota 2 community. Initially part of the Fnatic team who finished 4th place at The International 6, he was quickly snapped up by Team Secret after his incredible performance and since then he has performed steadily for the team with many big plays during major tournaments. Fans will be following him closely as Team Secret will be one of the big contenders to compete for the crown jewel in The International 7
