Alliance, the team that won The International 2013 has now lost its fangs over the past few years.
With player material that can be said to be lacking in achievements, of course the Alliance is not considered dangerous at TI9. However, Alliance can manifest as a dark horse that surprises us all, just like in the closing tournament DPC 2018-2019, namely the EPICENTER Major.
2. TNC Predator
The representative team from Southeast Asia, has always been considered unable to compete in The International, including TNC Predator.
The team from the Philippines will be considered the mid-table team at TI9. However, on arrival Heen, the former Team Liquid coach when winning TI7 will certainly make TNC Predator a frightening dark horse and of course it will make a big surprise at TI9 just like TI6 when it defeated OG, the king of major.
