But, Chinese Dota 2 players are now frequenting SEA servers on a daily basis. PSG LGD y explains why the SEA servers.
ESports pros need to constantly play games to keep up with the meta. Also, the pace of Dota 2 varies from game to game. More than drafting, sometimes one needs to respect opponents.
Official games happen only once per week. Except, it is not enough to achieve the peak performance numbers playing once a week. Players need to prepare for the entire week. Because, as mentioned, Meta can change every day.
Dota 2 Pros need to play consistently every day to keep up with Meta.
Every Dota 2 region, have their own dedicated servers. Of course, China has their own and players from other regions cannot play in CN servers. But, Chinese players can.
Though SEA and CN pros play Dota 2 regional Leagues together sometimes, the real reason for Chinese players in SEA servers is different.

” There are quite a few aspects to this. But, primarily there are two reasons.
During the morning and afternoon, it is difficult to find matches on the Chinese server. Also, there are a large number of high skill players in SEA servers. So, we want to learn from their playstyle.
There are some interesting ideas and unique playstyle.

Zhang is currently the captain of PSG.LGD. Much lies on their shoulders after the TI10 grand finals loss. At the moment, they are unbeaten in DPC with a 4-0 scoreline.
China was once the abode of Dota 2 Gods. Yet, there has been no TI wins for this region since 2016. Y was a member of the last TI winning Chinese squad.
PSG.LGD themselves have been in Grand Finals twice now. Maybe, 3rd time is the charm for PSG.LGD and y`.
