    1 - 1, then Spirit beat Liquid to knock them out of the major in the tiebreaker

    Even when I’ve seen some of these teams playing from behind, they play their lineup and have crawled back.

    Boy, if you were planning on watching some dota being played, this VP/Nigma matchup is very unfortunate. Think I’ve watched 20min of draft analysis, weird caster anime costumes, and pauses with maybe 5min of gameplay.

    His tiny plays in the third game were damn good too. Really impressed how he controls team fights.

    It’s been crazy seeing PL, Bristle, and Medusa all having abysmal win rates in this tournament.

    highly recommend checking out the T1-QC game 2.

    tons of team fight, lots of scrappy fighting, really well executed combos and plays by both teams. not a ton of kills (through 35 min, time of this posting) but feels like a very high-level match that also isn't as methodical as some other games.

    T1 is not a chinese team at all. they are SEA. china can at best go 1-2.

    2 China, 2 NA (lol EG), 1 EU, 1 SEA remain

    so am i to understand that OG, Liquid, Tundra, Nigma, and every other EU stack is playing for just one TI spot?

    Yep. 1 spot for each region.

    bloodbath in EU.

    From NA, undying should be a lock.

    EG vs Vici game 3 was so incredibly boring but amazing discipline from
    EG ended up being the single reason they won.

    really great for vision. didn't have the mana pool to support it as much as i wanted, though.

    i fucked up taking jugg's spin over bad juju in the first round. and while i had good farm, my skills weren't really "broken"

    qop had blink + rage + black hole and that was a really cool build. blink+bkb as soon as he turned level 6.

    Think the only greedy issue is the lack of the arcana being locked behind battle pass.

    otherwise it’s completely cosmetic and just helping support the game. Literally adds no in game benefit other than hats!

    Putting the arcana behind level 330 is pretty greedy

    Just played a 73 minute game where my naga DC'd in the middle of a teamfight, opponents kept trying to unpause, finally successfully did so, then we killed them in our base and walked mid as naga reconnected and we won.

    Dota.

    Also Underlord with a Giants Ring is hilarious
