There's a new tournament in town. BTS

The OMEGA League may be over but there’s still something that Dota 2 esports fans around the world can enjoy. Last week the BTS Pro Series Season 3 started with competition across three regions. That’s saying a lot considering that there are no DPC-sponsored events.

Organized by Beyond the Summit, each division has a prize pool of $50,000. The EU/CIS division has nine teams taking part, while the Americas and Southeast Asia divisions each have 10 teams competing. Of the three, it’s probably the SEA region that offers the most excitement, and you’ll see why later.

EU/CIS Division

Let’s start with the EU/CIS division. There are nine teams invited, but none are coming from the top tier. So don’t expect teams like OG, Nigma, or Secret to be part of the show. Still, that doesn’t mean there won’t be any interesting matches. The division has some of the region’s best up and coming teams that are more than ready to prove their worth. The teams are:

  • Ninjas in Pyjamas
  • Vikin.gg
  • 5men
  • Khan
  • B8
  • Team Unique
  • Team Empire
  • HellRaisers
  • mudgolems

Americas Division

With Evil Geniuses making the decision to move to Europe, it’s been a bit of a scramble for the region. So far, it has been Quincy Crew that’s showing dominance. Quincy Crew has taken first place in most of the Tier 2 competitions since June. However, there are a lot of teams that are more than willing to take the top spot if Quincy Crew ever slips. The teams participating are:

  • Quincy Crew
  • 4 Zoomers
  • CR4ZY
  • Team Zero
  • Thunder Predator
  • beastcoast
  • Infamous
  • Haven Liberty
  • Team Brasil
  • Infinity Esports

SEA Division

As mentioned, this division is likely the most exciting to watch right now. There’s one important reason why. But before that, let’s take a look back at what’s been happening in this region. Back in July of this year, Nuengnara “23savage” Teeramahanon left Fnatic and just last week Anucha “Jabz” Jirawong was replaced. Earlier this month as well, Geek Fam announced that it was disbanding its Dota 2 team. Finally, Abed Azel “Abed” Yusop is still not with EG, as he has been unable to leave his home country due to medical protocols.

So why are we saying all of this? Well, it turns out that some of these players made the decision to have fun and form a team in order to be part of this tournament. Calling themselves as Among Us, the team’s roster is composed of:

  • Nuengnara “23savage” Teeramahanon
  • Abed Azel “Abed” Yusop
  • Carlo “Kuku” Palad
  • Anucha “Jabz” Jirawong
  • Matthew “Whitemon” Filemon

It’s going to be interesting to see how these different veterans play together. The teams in this division are:

  • Among Us
  • BOOM Esports
  • TNC Predator
  • Fnatic
  • Neon Esports
  • New Esports
  • 496 Gaming
  • Execration
  • 032
  • Motivate.Trust Gaming
