Let’s have a look at the top two teams of the competitive landscape of Dota 2 and what they are capable of in the Paris Major.
The All-Rounder, Team Secret
The Stability and the desire to give 100% at each tournament is the best quality of Team Secret. The team has already guaranteed itself a slot at The International 2019, but Clement Puppey Ivanov will never get tired of winning trophies and earning prizes.
Secret did not appear in tournaments from the past major since they finished at 4th place in the qualifiers.
The players are well rested and full of energy and now everything will depend only on the psychological attitude and stable drafts from the coach and the captain.

Team Secret has no obvious weak points. All players are exceptional in their roles and do their job perfectly well. The team rarely loses, and if this happens, it is only in matches against other top players. One thing that remains consistent that Puppey’s team practically does not make mistakes in the early stages of tournaments and against lower-class opponents. This was shown by the European qualification, where Secret did not lose a single match.
Kings of the DPC
At the beginning of the season, Virtus.pro did not plan to dominate Dota Pro Circuit and wanted to focus on The International 2019, but in practice, everything turned out differently.
The team reached the final on every major and now confidently holds the first place in the DPC rating. Competing in the qualifiers of CIS is generally a pure formality Virtus.pro, since everything is quite easy for them these days.
The team from the CIS was the first candidate to secure the qualification TI. The team only compete to keep its first spot and prepare for the main tournament of the year.
It is not known what to expect from VP in Paris, but whatever happens, the team remains one of the strongest in the world. If Virtus.pro catches the wave, it becomes almost impossible to stop this team. Well, do not forget that in the current season, VP beat Secret more often than anyone else.
If anyone can stop the composition of the Puppey in top form, then the only team to rely on is Virtus.pro. Both teams significantly broke away from their closest pursuers in the DPC table.
It is very likely that they will remain on the first two spots until the end of the season. The gap is so significant that both just need to finish in the top 8 of the remaining competitions.
However, no one remembers the team that finishes at the second place. So we believe that both teams will surely fight for the top spot in Paris.
We can’t wait to see which one of these teams will finish strongly in the competition. Since anyone can win it and apart from the top 4, every team will be competing for the ticket to Shanghai.
