OG Dota 2 player Sebastian Ceb Debs spoke about veterans of the Dota 2 scene in an interview with the BLIX.GG portal, noting that adult players should not be written off.
Ceb noted that there was a showdown between Sneyking and Puppey in the TI final last year:
I look at Tundra Esports and their players are TI winners and their average age I think is about 27 years old. Sneyking, captain of the Tundra, has been racing as long as I have and needs to defend his title. A lot happened throughout the year, but what really happened last year at the TI Grand Finals was Sneyking versus Puppey.
You can’t name stronger veterans than these two, you know? They’ve been playing at the highest level for over a decade, so we’ll see what happens this year, but what I’m trying to say is don’t count out the veterans. And young blood should also be welcome.
TI12 will be held from October 12 to 29 in Seattle, USA. The top 20 teams from around the world participate in the championship. The prize fund is currently being supplemented from the compendium.
Previously, dyrachyo spoke specifically for Cybersport.Metaratings.ru about the compendium and prize fund at The International 2023.
