Im doing this in an attempt to break down the overrated phenomenon

Overrating suggests that there is such thing as appropriate rating and underratting. And the only rating most of the community can agree on is NAVI sothere can only be objectively one overrated team, which is Navi.


because since they are pretty unanimously rated as the best and therefore cannot be rated any higher. If they fail to live up to it by losing that would mean they are overrated.

As far as the other ratings goes its hard to say over/under because people disagree on where individual teams stand in the first place. Some say over while some would say it is appropriate etc.

Some concensus in the community seems to be that Navi is by far EU's best shot at TI2, followed by Zenith then some chinese teams. This is a fair judgement since that really is how the top 3 turned out last time around. I however believe that with the exception of Navi the rest of the top 3 are hard to rate.

Zenith- came 3rd last time but had average lan results in Asian LANs in dota 1, always been a top Singaporean team but never considered best in Asia. Recently they have only played against Malaysians and Chinese teams with mostly positive results but since there is the issue of ping it is hard to tell.

Chinese teams- No team dominates forever but there seems to be two distinct groups. The first group generaly dominates the Chinese and international scene with the second group challenging for position once in a while. Because of Chinese focus on dota 1 and lack of real Asian wide lan events there is no way to accurately gauge chinese skill levels. They could steamroll everyone at TI2 or be stomped completely.

For those who like to skip to the end of tldr, my point is that you cant rate the teams right now so dont try. Im sure the community will know the exact ranking once TI2 is finished.

#3 Pffft, such an over-rated comment.

At OP: Don't react to everything. You can't change people to think like you do.
