The International 2 – What is next?
The preliminaries are over and have overall been a success for us! We managed to qualify to the Winners Bracket which means we will have two shots at making it to the finals! Players in the Lower Bracket have their chances reduced to the bare minimum as the games they’ll play on the LB will be bo1 in every round! Our team has never been a big fan of bo1 matches so it’s a big sigh of relief for the players to know that the Winner Bracket matches are all bo3 until the Grand Finals which will be bo5. (Even better!)
We will be playing DK as LGD chose Orange over us. That should definitely be an exciting match! As Puppey stated in his interview on Inside The Game we’ll be looking for revenge against the Chinese. Last time we met them on LAN was in Dota 1 and they barely took us out of the tournament with a 2-1 score.
DK have been looking really strong in this tournament considering the fact that the only team they’ve lost to is LGD who have yet to drop a single game.
Our encounter with Burning and co is scheduled for 2.00 AM CET! Be sure not to miss it!
