Talent lineup for DAC 2018

Perfect World shared the English talent list for Dota 2 Asia Championships 2018. Thirteen professionals will entertain us in the next Major.

The lineup is composed of some of the most loved personalities in the Dota 2 community, and will be led by the veteran Paul "Redeye" Chaloner which will act as the host.

We can notice Kyle "Kyle" Freedman among the analysts. About a week ago, the ex-captain and drafter of compLexity Gaming has been kicked from the team due to personality conflicts, and this will be his first time as an official talent for an event. We wish him the best of luck in this new adventure.

Owen "ODPixel" Davies and Ioannis "Fogged" Loucas have been invited to multiple Dota Pro Circuit events during this season, while Dakota "KotLGuy" Cox only participated at DOTA Summit 8 Major - we are glad to see him back in action.

DAC 2018 will have sixteen teams playing for a $1,000,000 prize pool and 1,500 Pro Circuit Points. The tournaments will be hosted at Shanghai Oriental Sports Center in Shanghai, China from March 29 to April 7.
