Team Secret is one of the Dota 2 pro-gaming teams to receive a direct invite to play in TI8, where the prize pool is expected to surpass last year’s amount of USD$24.7 million.
Ian Alexander Ang, Secretlab’s co-founder and CEO said they were proud “to provide Team Secret’s professional players with hours of seated comfort” especially their Dota 2 team as they ready themselves for TI8.
This is not the first time Secretlab has partnered with a professional Dota 2 team.
In May this year, the chair maker collaborated with Chinese team, Newbee, and previously in 2016, with the now-defunct Team Faceless which was led by Singaporean Daryl ‘iceiceice’ Koh.
