It's a perks of having TORONTOTOKYO on their team.
BetBoom has been one of the standout teams in the Dota Pro Circuit so far this season, which isnt all that surprising considering how stacked their new line-up is, and how theyve shuffled things around to make it work. As it stands, theyre currently undefeated in the Eastern European branch of the Winter Tour with five wins and zero losses, making them one of the first teams to qualify for the Lima Major with two games in hand.
According to offlaner Egor “Nightfall” Grigorenko, who signed with the org after leaving EG at the end of last season, a lot of their success has come down to borrowed tactics from Team Spirit, who won The International 10.
Its not like theyve stolen them, either. Instead, its because Alexander “TORONTOTOKYO” Khertek, who played a pivotal role in Spirits success, is now in their ranks as a support player, and they let him call the shots in the late game due to his experience.Photo via [Valve](https://www.flickr.com/photos/dota2ti/52424401046/)
Nightfall said so himself during an interview with popular streamer Nix, explaining that TORONTOTOKYO takes the reins in the late game because hes a well-known late-game expert, and hes using the same calls he made at Team Spirit to help them win.
As for who he thinks can curb their momentum, Nightfall said TI11 winners Tundra Esports and Team Liquid, who are some of the most in-form teams right now, give them a run for their money in scrims. So, when they meet in the Lima Major next month, there will be fireworks.
If what he says about borrowing Team Spirits TI-winning tactics is true, however, theres a good chance theyll find a way to win those series, regardless of how much the odds are stacked against them.
Well know for sure once the tournament kicks off on Wednesday, Feb. 22, assuming it doesnt get canceled due to the social unrest in Peru at the moment.
