The best of the Chinese Dota 2 lineups will take part in Season 4 Dota Pit. Teams couldn’t be any better, as all the best teams are here to make their participation.
The following teams will compete in AMD SAPPHIRE OGA Dota PIT China Season 4:
Group A: EHOME, Royal Never Give Up, Magma, Vici Gaming
Group B: Elephant, Invictus Gaming, PSG.LGD, Team Aster
Vici Gaming were OGA Dota Pit China Season 3 champions and they are defending their title this time. It’s hard to say which team is the biggest favourite here as this tournament is one of the most stacked tournaments this year. Chinese region is so competitive it’s crazy. Best bet here would be PSG.LGD and Elephant. Those are my top picks. However, Aster is very close and can make it until the end for sure. My underdog pick would be Vici Gaming. All those teams can make their runs. Elephant are the recent China Dota2 Pro Cup Season 2 champions, while PSG.LGD won CDA-FDC Professional Championship Season 2 one week ago.
I can definitely see someone from those mighty four take the Season 4 championship. I don’t see the other 4 teams come close to it. My best bet and favourite pick would definitely be PSG.LGD as they are really coming back to impressive performances lately with their new lineup. They are my top favourites, and Elephant just behind them. Aster on 3rd place and Vici on 4th place of the best bets and Dota Pit tournament favourites.
