SL i-League: Make or break time

 

UPDATE: Liquid vs OG will not be played today, due to the teams participation at the Defense #5 and the upcoming Summit 4. This means that the winner of the Last Chance bracket will not be decided today. Stay tuned for more details.

 

The last round of qualifiers for the SL i-League LAN finals is upon us with Ukraine Natus Vincere taking on International Team Secret for a spot in the final of the Last Chance bracket. The two last-place teams of each group (from previous qualifiers) will have an ultimate chance to get to the LAN event in Minsk. The first series will see International OG and International Liquid facing each other. After the conclusion of that game, Na`Vi will play against the runner-up of the Frankfurt Major.

 

Natus Vincere finished third in their qualifying group after beating OG and later dropping both series against Sweden Alliance and Russian Federation Virtus.Pro. Team Secret finished last in their group, winning only a single map in the three best-of-three games they have played. Besides these qualifiers, Team Secret won two tournaments before finishing second at the Frankfurt Major in recent months. Although it might seem that our opponent is going through a rough patch at the moment, they should not be underestimated by any means.

 

The other game of the Last Chance bracket will see Liquid and OG entertaining each other for a spot in the final. Just last weekend, the two teams played at the Defense #5 finals, with OG winning one game and Liquid taking the other. It was the latter that got the better end of the trade, winning the final and securing the prize. Today OG will be looking to take a revenge and try to make it to Minsk. The game will be live at 14:00 CET.

So hard to keep supporting a team that cant even make it to LAN finals, let alone win one. If sonneiko has a bad game the team just crumbles! He could not do much with IO and SB and navi got destroyed! He is carrying the whole team by himself atm. Artsyle plz try to have half the impact that soneiko has
