There are different opinions regarding female players in DOTA 2 esports. Many believe that men have an advantage, while others argue that girls are not inferior to guys in their skills. One way or another, many esportswomen can compete with professional male players. Today’s predominantly male eSports players, however, we do not say that girls play worse, so the creation of projects aimed at female eSports can be considered a good trend.
Females in Dota 2
Victoria Telnykh [Tory] is a professional DOTA 2 player and streamer at the same time. She started her career as an esports athlete in 2009. During her playing career, she changed two teams, namely: Ownedby.pro Female and Azaza Team. She won the SLTV Dota 2 Female Cup tournament and finished third in the Game Ring Female tournament.
Ye Zi Xuan [yoyiki.una] is a member of the newly formed female group in LGD China. The LGD cannot boast any victories as it is a relatively young team. However, Yoyiki.Una has already become the team leader, as she has shown a high level of skill in the game.
Bi Xia [axx] is a skilled DOTA 2 player. She is especially known because she was a member of men’s teams and successfully played with them. Dota2 esportswoman played in the Newbee.Boss and Baze teams. The world of eSports paid attention to this girl, and as a member of Baze team, she managed to take third place in the last tournament of The International – PSG.LGD.
Daria Pavich works for the Belarusian Federation of eSports. She believes that specifically in DOTA 2, guys have an advantage because of how they think. But she also notes that everyone can play the game regardless of gender and everyone is an individual. She’s been playing DOTA 2 for over 10 years and has managed to get on the DOTA 2 esports team. In serious tournaments didn’t participate, and her team’s activity was limited to small competitions between the Belarusian teams.
Thus we can conclude that girls have the opportunity to express themselves in esports. There is a trend to create more and more women’s teams that can compete with men. In parallel, some teams include both women and men. This trend will likely continue in the future and continue to evolve.
