Update on TI3 Eastern Qualifiers

58 second read

So, the Western qualifier was decided, and by the end of this week the east will be, too.  Picking up again on Tuesday, we will see the semi-finals and finals of the eastern qualifiers.  So what has happened so far?

In the east we are seeing much greater diversity in drafting teams.  However, Shadow Demon is still showing a very strong presence – either being picked or banned in almost every single game so far across east and west.  Vici Gaming and RaTtLeSnAkE have both put on very strong performances and will be facing off when games continue.  

Despite a fantastic showing by MiTH.Trust trouncing Mineski Infinity, it just wasn’t enough when they went against Rising Stars.  Looking forward to the match between LGD Gaming and Rising Stars when games recommence.

 Oh, and the compendium is now pushing $2.2 million – such an impressive crowd-sourced prize!  Have you been watching?  Do you think LGD will annihilate Rising Stars?  Who do you think will win between VG and Rattlesnake?

          I used to wonder what friendship could be
          Until you all shared its magic with me!

    Meh I watched a few RS games, and its looking pretty shoddy IMO. I vote LGD might just take it, they’ve had outstanding games.

    I reckon LGD will take it. On a related note, Alliance won the G1 Championship this weekend going through the whole tournament undefeated, and completely stomping iG in the process. So they’re looking really good for TI3!

    Rising Stars had some hot games but their 4 protect one style is going to be flattened by LGD.
    LGD will kill their early game by punishing their mistakes very hard, Something that MiTH didn’t do as they also play the late game Chinese Dota.

    I cannot wait for ViCi vs Rattlesnake!
    I’m backing VG due to compendium but Rattlesnake has been so much on form that I’m really anxious.

    Yes everyone thinks iG is struggling and people don’t fear them, most
    people are betting on Alliance. But if you think about it……for iG,
    the The International is much more important than the G-1, so why would
    they show their new strategies and capabilities in the G-1 league ?
    They are hiding it for The International 3, but the fact that you
    underestimate them is the problem, just like all the participants in The
    International 2, iG is going to win a lot of matches and probably the
    competition. And after they win, everyone will be pissed of once again
    for losing against them and getting out drafted. The 3 final teams
    would probably be iG, Alliance and LGD.cn.
