Players in Southeast Asia (SEA) Dota 2 are certainly among the most talented in the world, particularly in the safelane and midlane positions. The most successful carry of the region in the previous season, T1’s Nuengnara "23savage" Teeramahanon, recently offered his assessment of other players in the carry position. 23savage was tasked with ranking Muhammad "inYourdreaM" Rizky, Kim "Gabbi" Villafuerte, Souliya "JaCkky" Khoomphetsavong, and Marc Polo Luis "Raven" Fausto from best to worst during an interview with 'ESPORTS ID' on YouTube. 23savage ultimately based his decision on the past performances of these top Dota 2 carry players from Southeast Asia.

23savage believes Raven is the best carry of the four

Four players were ranked from best to worst in the following order.

  1. Raven

  2. JaCkky

  3. Gabbi

  4. inYourdreaM

23savage unveiled the ranking, which led to a laugh between the host (Billy Rifki) and the two T1 players, since Billy also hails from Indonesia like inYourdreaM.

Kuku then asked 23savage if he would like to change his answer to which he replied, "I'm just gonna go with the facts." When Kuku was asked if he had a different answer he laughed and said, “I will rank inYourdreaM second.”

The entire T1 squad showcased optimal performances in the Dota Pro Circuit (DPC) 2021 and at The International 10 (TI10). When asked what made them so strong and how they achieved successful results this year, 23savage noted that it was the chemistry in his team.

“I think we communicate well when we have problems and we try to fix every problem wisely and the (other) four members had the chemistry even before I joined and it’s easy to adapt and play with them.”

Additionally, Kuku pointed out that a large part of their success can be attributed to T1's coach, Park "March" Tae-won who brings in a lot of ideas and ties the team together.

However, there was also the fact that T1 was unable to lift the Aegis of Champions at TI10. Kuku and 23savage both admitted they were upset after they were eliminated from TI10, but they also recognized some of the lessons they learned from the event. Both players agreed that they need to start their tournament campaigns stronger since they have had poor starts to their tournaments over the course of the year.

In an effort to implement this change, T1 will aim to start the upcoming DPC 2021-22 on a high note. There are a lot of roster shuffles taking place in the region, and some star-studded teams are expected to be acknowledged. But 23savage seemed quite confident in the future of T1. “I think, we will beat everyone,” he responded when questioned about T1's competition in the upcoming SEA DPC League.

However, Kuku mentioned that even though they played at TI, they still had to try hard and respect their opponents since they were all very talented individuals.

The first regional DPC 2021-22 league will commence on 29th Nov 2021.
