The first showmatch of the joinDOTA Turbo Masters is upon us, and it’s going to be Yoshimoto.Detonator and Clutch Gamers who will do battle for $1,000 and the all-important bragging rights.

Three regions will take part in the joinDOTA Turbo Masters — Asia, Europe and the Americas. In each region, two teams will do battle in a best-of-seven, winner-takes-all match worth $1,000.

As the name suggests, the game mode is Turbo, meaning we’re in for some fast and frantic Dota 2 action. Expect crazy picks, wild plays and more deaths than you can reasonably count on your limbs alone!

Bringing you all the action will be our very own Gareth, ably assisted by the one and only Lacoste.

Featuring the ever-popular Sam H, DeToNator come into the Masters fresh from narrowly missing out in qualifiers for a place at ESL One Katowice 2019. The all-Philippine roster even has a joinDOTA champion in its midst, with Benhur winning joinDOTA League Season 11 Asia with HappyFeet.

Full DeToNator roster:
ph Ryan Jay 'raging-potato' Qui
ph Benhur 'Benhur' Lawis
ph Samson E. 'SamH' Hidalgo
ph Sandro 'Luciano26' Aguinaldo
ph Ralph Richard 'RR' Peñano

Their opponents are joinDOTA League regulars Clutch Gamers. The Thailand-based org have taken part in the last two editions of the Asia Premier division, finishing in the top four both times. The side came within one game of making it to The Bucharest Minor, losing 2-1 to BOOM Esports in the Grand Final of the Southeast Asia Qualifier.

Full Clutch roster:
bg Nikolay 'Nikobaby' Nikolov
my Hiew Teck 'AlaCrity' Yoong
gr Haris 'SkyLark' Zafiriou
my Lee 'Ky.xY' Kong Yang
dk Danny 'NoiA' Junget
