Following his unfortunate omission from The International 2022 (TI11) Southeast Asian Qualifiers, Iceiceice has been livestreaming regularly on Twitch.
During one of his streams, the veteran offlaner was asked by his viewers about his opinion on the most competitive region out of the four regions that he has played in.
“Having tasted the EU region, which region is the most competitive out of the four regions that you’ve played in? I think it’s China actually, followed by the EU, SEA and finally NA.”
He went on to say that the North American region is the easiest region to play in as it almost guarantees him a spot in tournaments, having played with Evil Geniuses during the 2020/2021 season.
“NA is pretty much, 100% like qualification…..if you are human. SEA is slightly harder, just a little bit more than NA.” he noted.
Iceiceice then added on by saying that both the Western European (WEU) and China regions are very difficult to compete in, if the team or the players are not stable enough.
Despite iceiceice’s unfortunate circumstances, many people within the Dota 2 community are hoping that Valve would invite him over for TI11 as a broadcast talent.
