The International 2015: Playoff stage


The matches of TI 2015 are over. The teams were fighting over the place in the upper brackets of play off stage.  The teams, which get to the upper brackets, will obtain 12th place and about $ 215 000 at least. However, the right to mistake is the main advantage of the teams in upper brackets. Those in lower brackets will immediately leave the tournament after the first defeat. Furthermore, the format of the first round will be bo1. Many players call it  roulette, since you never predict what surprise your rival will prepare for you.

Unfortunately, Ukraine Natus Vincere couldn't show the level of game, they were capable of showing. They took the las place in the Group A. Their rival was China Vici Gaming. This is one of the best teams in China, but they didn't succeed in group stage, so they got to the losers as well as Ukraine Na`Vi

Match with China Vici Gaming will be held on 4 August in Key Arena. The winner will go further, while the loser will take 13-16 place. Let's hope our guys will manage to gather their strength, discuss their mistakes and eventually show that Ukraine Natus Vincere is a worthy team.
