The International Day 1 coverage!

image


The time for the biggest Dota 2 tournament of the year has finally come! A year after we triumphed in the first one we get the chance to dwell into the fierce competition once again and prove that we are very best team in Dota 2.


The International 2’s preliminaries will kick off tomorrow!

Teams have been placed into two groups consisting of 8 teams. Top 4 teams of each group will move on to play in the Winner Bracket of the main tournament while the bottom 4 will be placed into the Losers Bracket. All the matches of the preliminaries will be played from 26th August to 28th August.

Our first opponents will be the Chinese powerhouse image Invictus Gaming.


The Chinese team is coming off from a rather disappointing finals against image Counter Logic Gaming in the Beyond the Summit World Tour where CLG simply outclassed them in a pretty convincing fashion. Will they bounce back after the devastating blow that image Misery and co dealt to their confidence? We will be able to watch and see for ourselves at 20.00 CET!

Pathetic first games, wtf was that ?

You looked like a newly formed midskilled team. Get your shit together, stop posting fucking awful interviews where you whine about how bad everything is and be grateful that you are in the position to play for 1 mil dollar AGAIN.

You are makin us, your fans, very angry atm with all the drama going on.

Play as a team again, we dont want to see such a miserable performance like against iG right now again.

Are you sure you watched an interview of Na`Vi's? I don't remember anything like that =)

As for the teamplay, you are right. The performance was shitty, there are some problems with the mindset, but we're working on that. Follow the next matches!

#4 Yes ? For example the one with Xboct "It's a total disaster" ? Or the one with ppy where he says they went through huge slumps during the bootcamp or the video #3 from bootcamp where Lost and ppy are arguing after the win against mtw, there one could clearly see the bad mood in Navi atm.
