Whitemon Explains Why T1 Chooses To Stick Together For DPC 2021-22

Following The International 10 (TI10) roster shuffle, most of the top global teams have made some significant changes to their rosters. Only a handful of teams in each region decided to keep their roster, and in Southeast Asia (SEA), only T1 from Division 1 chose to do so. Matthew”Whitemon“Filemon, T1’s 4th-placed player, explained why the team decided to stay together in a recent interview with Beyond the Summit (BTS). According to Whitemon, the players are not conflicting but well-coordinated, eliminating the need for any roster changes.

Whitemon on T1 chemistry, lessons learned from TI10 and goals for the upcoming season

The way teams typically work in Dota 2 is that when anything less than first place ends up at TI, which, along with a number of other factors, tends to lead to quite a few roster changes.

Although T1 didn’t win TI10, they performed very well throughout Dota Pro Circuit (DPC) 2021, and in the end, they were one of the few teams that decided to stick together. Whitemon admits that his team still has room for improvement, but he believes their chemistry is enough to not warrant a roster change.

“I think for us we have no problems so we just stick together and I still think we can improve together as a team. I think our chemistry is really good so we don’t need to shuffle (the lineup).

When asked exactly what the team needs to improve on based on their experience at TI10, Whitemon mentioned their move and hero pool as two important areas.

However, T1 is still considered by many as the leading candidate for the 2021-22 DPC after achieving the best performance in Southeast Asia last season. However, Whitemon did mention that it’s important for the team to stay focused and aim for the top spot in Tour 1 of the ongoing season. “I think we will try a lot in this DPC. I think our goal is to get to the Major. Possibly top 1.”

In T1’s quest to finish at the top of the table and qualify for the Major, Whitemon believes the two teams will pose the biggest challenges. “I think the biggest threat is Fnatic and BOOM because they are pretty strong teams and if you see their results, BOOM continues to win online tournaments.”

So far, Fnatic has failed to deliver a performance that matches its potential, losing 2/3 of its 3 series while BOOM Esports is on the upswing, winning both of its 2 series. surname. There is currently no schedule for T1’s series against Fnatic and BOOM Esports at DPC SEA 2021-22: Division 1: Tour 1.
