TrackDota's Guide to BTS Pro Series 3: SEA

By TrackDota TeamSeptember 11, 2020
Beyond the Summit's BTS Pro Series 3 tournament is going to extend beyond the Americas. Let's focus now on the Southeast Asian region, which begins on September 12.
The tournament will run until September 27. Ten top SEA teams will compete.

What's at stake?

Just like in the other two regions, there is a $50,000 USD prize pool, with $21,000 going to the first-place team.

Teams

BTS' has focused on the SEA region, where many recent events have combined China and SEA. This puts the spotlight squarely on top teams in the SEA region as well as some potential up-and-comers.
Fnatic and TNC Predator are the teams to watch here. TNC most recently won ESL One Thailand: Asia, but Fnatic has been tweaking its roster to find the perfect combination.
Also, don't sleep on the two new stacks. 032 is a collection of strong Filippino players, while Among Us is the best-of-the-best-who-lack-a-team, essentially. The combination of Abed Azel L. Yusop, who is unable to play with his squad Evil Geniuses at the present time, Nuengnara "23savage" Teeramahanon and Anucha "Jabz" Jirawong who formerly played for Fnatic, and Matthew "Whitemon" Filemon and Carlo "Kuku" Palad who formerly played for Geek Fam - well, that's a strong combination.

Format & Schedule

This event opens with a round-robin group stage. Teams will play each other in two-game series from September 12-23.
The bottom two teams will be eliminated, with the other eight heading into a double-elimination playoff bracket. The top four teams will head to the upper bracket, while the fifth-eighth place teams will head to the lower bracket. The playoff will take place September 24-27. All games will be best-of-threes, with a best-of-five grand final.
