The tournament will have South American representation in Thunder Predator. The full Peruvian squad qualified for the ESL One Los Angeles Major by beating beastcoast in the SA qualifiers, proving that they’re a force to be reckoned with.

C9 has quickly sought out EternaLEnVy’s services once again after announcing its return to Dota 2 in January. This will be the revamped roster’s first showing at a tournament and the polarizing EternaLEnVy will certainly earn his moments of fanfare at the Summit.
Dota Summit 12 features six teams battling for $150,000. Known for its lighthearted atmosphere and closeup content with pros, the tournament will serve as good practice for the teams heading to the Major and should provide fans with fun shenanigans.
