J.Storm announced as the last direct invite of the ONE Esports’ Dota 2 World Pro Invitational.
Although it’s not included in the DPC, ONE Esports’ Dota 2 World Pro Invitational is going to be one of the biggest tournaments of the year. Twelve of the best teams in the world will be heading out to Singapore. Apart from fame and glory, they will also fight for that sweet $500K USD prize pool.
The latest addition to the squad

The direct invites for this tournament started to roll out nearly two months ago. The first couple of invites were sent out to some of the biggest teams in the world. Having said that, today, ONE Esports announced the very latest addition to the event - J.Storm.
Even though J.storm played decently last season, they were still unable to qualify for TI 9. As a result, there was one roster change where they’ve added Joel Mori “MoOz” Ozambela to the roster. This forced their star player Clinton “Fear” Loomis to switch to a support role once again and take over the role of the captain.
It seems like this was the right choice so far, judging by the results. J.Storm was one of the first teams that secured their place for MDL Chengdu.
This tournament is going to be a debut for two of the best teams in the world - PSG.LGD and Team Secret. Both of them decided to take some time off and will miss the first DPC tournaments.
Here is a list of all teams that will be attending this event: Team Secret, PSG.LGD, Evil Geniuses, Vici Gaming, Virtus.Pro, Natus Vincere, TNC Predator, Alliance, Team Aster, Gambit Esports, J.Storm and Team Liquid.
Be sure to watch the ONE Esports Dota 2 World Pro Invitational starting on the 17th of December. It’s going to be epic.
