It’s hard to predict what will happen at TI10, but thanks to the power of stats, we do have some idea of how the teams will perform.
The stats in this article were provided by Lea Spectral. You can find more interesting data on their website. The information in this article is based on data gathered in the last five months, starting with the second DPC season.
It’s important to remember that some teams who are attending The International have spent the last few months bootcamping and therefore have fewer official matches to peruse and less impressive pre-TI10 stats. Team Secret has only played 32 matches in the same time that Vici Gaming has played 140.
6. Team Undying is the most bloodthirsty team entering The International
Team Undying leads the pack when it comes to the number of kills per game. The team averages 29 kills whenever they play. They also have the highest number of assists, with 70 total. An impressive pre-TI10 stat to have.
Team Undying secures on average 10 kills more than the tournament’s lowest kill team, Thunder Predator.
5. PSG.LGD has the deepest hero pool
Similar to Wings Gaming who won The International 6, PSG.LGD has been lauded for their impressive hero pool and it shows. Over the last five months, the team has picked an impressive 107 heroes across all their matches.
PSG.LGD more than doubles the tournament’s lowest team diversity. Quincy Crew has played 52 heroes in the same time period.
4. Team Undying has the highest winrate of the attending teams
In the last five months, Team undying has managed to win 57 out of the 79 games they have played. That’s a 72.15% win rate.
An impressive win rate comes with a few trophies. Team Undying was able to win the BTS Pro Series Season 7 and 8. Along with qualifying to The International through the North American Open Qualifier.
3. Thunder Predator is the fastest team in the tournament and it’s not even close
Thunder Predator plays a hyper-aggressive style that favors the mid-game heavily. As such it comes as no surprise that the team has both the shortest average game time of 32:16 as well as the fastest win average at 31:52. The nearest competitor is Virtus.Pro with 35:15 average game time.
Ironically, for a region long praised for its aggression, SEA teams take the longest time to close out games. T1 comes with the longest game time of 39:38 and the longest win time of 39:22.
2. PSG.LGD is the most efficient team at using the map
When it comes to how well a team can farm and take resources around the map, PSG.LGD comes out on top according to the pre-TI10 stats. With a jaw-dropping GPM of 2371 for the team, it’s no wonder that both Syed Sumail “SumaiL” Hassan and Johan “N0tail” Sundstein say PSG.LGD is one of the strongest teams coming into The International.
With great power comes….more great power actually. PSG.LGD is also the best team at leveling up their heroes with an experience average of 2934 a minute.
1. Quincy Crew and Virtus.pro are nearly unkillable
The two teams with the least deaths according to TI10 stats are Quincy Crew and Virtus.pro with 17 deaths each per game. That’s nearly half of Beastcoast, which has 33 deaths per game.
Of the two teams, Quincy Crew’s games last about a minute longer, making their lower death number more impressive. Evil Genuises comes in third place (classic EG) with an average of 18 deaths a game.
