The Dota Pit League Season 5 is the fifth tournament by Dota Pit. Eight teams compete for the title with six from qualifiers across different regions: two EU teams, one CIS team, one SEA team, one CN team and one NA team; plus, another two direct invites. The initial prize pool of the tournament was $125,000 USD, which was increased through the sale of in-game tickets and cosmetics. As of January 16th, 2017, the total prize pool was $136,345 USD.
Evil Geniuses won the China Top 16 just before the end of the year. Before that, they had an excellent showing in the Boston Major after beating Wings Gaming, the reigning TI champions, and Virtus Pro-Dota 2, who were one of the favorites to take the Boston Major title.
They are more than favorites against Team Faceless, who are winless against Evil Geniuses in their past two encounters, the most recent being in the Boston Major.
The side will come into the match with some momentum since it is unbeaten in the past four games. They were also runner-ups in the ASUS ROG SEA Cup, losing 2-3 to Execration in a good competitive final. However, the side will need to give 100% to beat the in-form Evil Geniuses.
Digital Chaos needs no introduction coming into the tournament. The side has quite recently won the ESL One Genting in some style and were the semi-finalists in the Boston Major. Moreover, Digital Chaos was the runner-up of The International 2016. They will be looking for a comfortable win against Team Secret.
On the other side of the story, Team Secret had problems of their own with all the EternalEnvy saga, but have recently shown that their problems are not affecting their style of play in the game as they claimed the 3-0 victory over Execration in the ROG Masters Grand Finals.
Team Secret has won two of the past three encounters against Digital Chaos, but these stats date back to August, and a lot has happened since then. The latest statistics show that the odds are very much against Team Secret who need to show something special to become the dominating side as they were once before.
