The top 16 teams have been confirmed for the DotA 2’s first Major event, The Frankfurt Major. The statistics from the Chinese Open Qualifiers revealed that the most powerful hero after the Patch 6.85, Doom, proved as the ‘MVP’ of every game. The Chinese teams in DotA 2 usually like to play with Doom as an offlaner. Therefore, the total score of Doom ended up as 7-1 in The Frankfurt Major Chinese qualifiers. Before the patch, Doom was quite heavily nerfed and no team was interested to pick or ban him in any tournament match.
The teams in The Frankfurt Major Qualifiers also started to pick Batrider. The dominating skills of the hero make it easy to win the lane and eventually the match. Both Doom and Batrider are considered to be an offlaner but it always depends on the situation. Batrider ended up with a score of 11-4 across all regions. The Chinese teams once again appeared as strong opponents and by using some of the best tactical drafts, they managed to score 85% winrate on Batrider.
