Restricting the amount of teams international countries may field, this year's SMM may just witness a non-Chinese champion for the first time in years. Since team count have been capped at 64, with 32 of them coming from within Malaysia, China may only send four teams to the event, excluding EHOME.

With EHOME's latest instability following their participation at ACG, they will not be attending SMM this year. Instead, the top four Chinese teams from this year's World DotA Championships will be fielded to Malaysia for the 6th edition of SMM.

And there you have it - China's top four will make their last showdown at SMM 2011. Will the standings still favor the Chinese this time?
