Team AFK picks their TI8 Dream Team

Picking 5 players from 90 of the world’s best Dota players isn’t easy. But here at AFK we never take the easy way out. Today we asked our 7 Dota 2 specialists to pick and choose their TI8 dream team. Here’s what they came up with.

 

Floki - Dota 2 caster - Tilting someone has never been easier

 

Core - RAMZES666 - VP

Core - Miracle - Team Liquid

Offlane - iceiceice - Mineski

Position 4 - YapzOr - Team Secret

Position 5 - Solo - VP
 

 

Writer’s note: I may not agree with Floki on most things but his list seems like a pretty fair one.

 
 

Veewake - Dota 2 caster/Video content- Always AFK during the pick phase

 

Core - RAMZES666 - VP

Core - No[o]ne - VP

Offlane - iceiceice - Mineski

Position 4 - Gh - Team Liquid

Position 5 - Kuku - TNC Predator

 

Writer’s note: The SEA bias is strong with this one


 

ClouDx - Co-founder and Puppetmaster - Was a decent Meepo player in the 1800’s

 

Core - Resolution - VG.J Storm

Core - Midone - Team Secret

Offlane - Sam_H- TNC Predator

Position 4 - DJ - Fnatic

Position 5 - Kuroky - Team Liquid

Writer's Note: Do you guys SEA what he's done?


 

Fear - Social Media Genius - Just bought a Gaming chair OMEGALUL

 

 

Core - Miracle - Team Liquid

Core - No[o]ne - VP

Offlane - Universe - Fnatic

Position 4 - Gh - Team Liquid

Position 5 - Puppey - Team Secret

 

Writer’s note: No surprises considering he was(is?) a big Na’Vi fan.


 

Gfreak - Writer and Memer - Sleeps with a EE plushie


 

Core - EternalEnvy - Fnatic

Core - Somnus - PSG.LGD

Offlane - iceiceice - Mineski

Position 4 - fy - PSG.LGD

Position 5 - Solo - VP

 

Writer’s note: Loves EE. Picked 2 Chinese players. Agent 3154 Confirmed.

Core - Miracle - Team Liquid

Core - No[o]ne - VP

Offlane - 33 - OpTic Gaming

Position 4 - Gh - Team Liquid

Position 5 - Solo - VP

 

Writer’s note: Definitely the best 5.


 

Bazzinga - Video Editor - Lost in round 1 of BOT TI

 
 

Core - Arteezy - EG

Core - w33 - Pain Gaming

Offlane - iceiceice - Mineski

Position 4 - Gh - Team Liquid

Position 5 - Ninjaboogie - Mineski

 

Writer’s note: Some real wonky picks by Bazzinga. Too much Counter-Strike does that to you.


 

The AFK 5

 

The majority has spoken and here are the top 5 according to Team AFK

 

Core - Miracle - Team Liquid

Core - No[o]ne - VP

Offlane - iceiceice - Mineski

Position 4 - Gh - Team Liquid

Position 5 - Solo - VP

 

Additionally, we also decided to vote on the best coach and the best manager at TI8. Here are the results:

 

Best Coach - The consensus here was 71 who currently coaches Mineski but special mentions to Artstyle, Heen and Sunbhie.

(6 coaches who work tirelessly behind the scenes)

 
Best Manager
- This was actually more of a fluff category as it’s quite unfair to rate managers because we never really know how much work they are putting in. Most of the voting was done based on social media presence and in the end we couldn’t come to a consensus so we’ll call it a tie between Morad who manages TL and Cyborgmatt who manages Team Secret. Special shoutout to Fnatic's manager ReiNNN who has been instrumental to the Dota scene in SEA.

(4 managers who are just as crucial to their teams as the players)

(An interview with Fnatic's manager Eric 'ReiNNNN' Khor)

 
Writer’s Note:
Not surprising to see so many Liquid and VP players in the list as they were indeed the two best teams this season. Barring some small bias for SEA players i think we managed to put together a pretty comprehensible list. Do note that we never considered team synergy, farm distribution and the goal was never to create an unbeatable team but rather a dream team.
