TNC Predator have taken the first major of the 2019-2020 Dota 2 Pro Circuit, and with it claim $300,000 and 4,850 vital points toward qualification for the International 2020. They defeated Vici Gaming 3-1 in the grand finals in Chengdu.
The Southeast Asian juggernaut TNC Predator have claimed another tournament trophy in their short but impressive history. The two-time WESG champions have claimed their second major trophy in the past month, having won ESL One Hamburg at the end of October, and their first Valve major trophy ever.

Chinese fans can still be proud of their domestic teams, as Invictus claimed third place and Vici took second at major’s end.
A fine consolation prize given that one of the best teams from China, PSG.LGD, opted to skip the first major of the year while one of their starters returns from injury. They weren’t the only top team to miss Chengdu.
For Dota 2 fans, they got to witness the primetime debuts of several new rosters, as a vast amount of organizations made big changes to their teams after The International 2019. Fans will still have to wait to see the DPC debuts for OG, Team Secret, PSG, and the ex-Team Liquid roster.
The next Dota 2 major will take place January 18-26, at DreamLeague Season 13 in Leipzig, Germany. The corresponding minor will take place just before that, at the WePlay! Bukovel Minor, at a tremendously unique Ukrainian location.
