Ana played as a stand-in for Team Liquid and RNG during the Riyadh Masters and in the Arlington Major, respectively. Meanwhile, this will be Topson’s first foray back into professional Dota ever since his exit from OG after TI10.
T1 did not get a direct invite to TI11 via Dota Pro Circuit points. They will have to win the regional qualifiers or the last chance qualifiers to be able to join TI11.
