The Fragbite Masters Dota 2 tournament will feature The Alliance, Speed Gaming , Fnatic , and 4FC with the entire tournament spread over two days.
The most notable change to the schedule is in the playoffs, with the postponed group stage matches beginning with QPAD versus Kawaii and followed by Speed Gaming versus Next.kz . The winner of the first group stage match will play against Zero Respect and the winner of the second group stage match will play against Power Rangers .
It will be interesting to see how these ten teams match up after MLG and Dreamhack. Even though only four of the ten teams were present at MLG, every tournament since the introduction of 6.79 seems to be spontaneous and unpredictable with its trends and strategies. Will Speed Gaming continue with their dominance? Will The Alliance return with a fresh perspective? Will Fnatic continue to surprise?
Highlight matches on the first day of the tournament will be Speed Gaming versus Next.kz , The Alliance versus Super Strong Dinosaurs , and Fnatic versus 4FC.
Will this be the tournament that revives The Alliance after their recent slump? How will Speed Gaming fair without Arteezy? Will Fnatic and N0tail continue to run their legendary Sand King?
