Mineski

  • Malaysia  Chai “Mushi” Yee Fung
  • Malaysia Kam “NaNa” Bonn Sheng
  • Singapore Daryl Koh “iceiceice” Pei Xiang
  • Thailand Anucha “Jabz” Jirawong
  • Philippines Michael “ninjaboogie” Ross Jr.

With only one match to go, Mineski is only moments away from bringing a Major victory to the SEA Region.
This squad has put a fantastic show throughout the tournament, coming in stronger than they were in the Group Stage.

The staple SEA Huskar+Oracle has also made its appearance in the hands of Mineski, so much so that it managed to contribute to a decisive knock out of LGD, in the Upper Semifinals.

Mushi remains one of the strongest mid-player Dota 2 has ever seen and with the aid of his supports – jabz and ninjaboogie – it is a nightmare to lane against him. You will be harassed and paralyzed, but this highly aggresive trio. Not a tri-lane on screen, but the supports presence is an ever-looming menace for whoever faces Mushi.

Talking about strong laners, we can not mention iceiceice and Moon. iceiceice is synonymous with the offlane, a hero so versatile and life-draining that even a few moments of respite can see him turning your lane into a death-road.

Still, laning-wise, Mineski is quite the flexible team as core players can often be seen rotating lane positions if the draft and game requires so. That is quite a trick to have.

With only 5 games to Mineski has a real shot to glory, but can they take the prize and the glory for SEA?

LGD

 

  • China Wang “Ame” Chunyu
  • China Lu “Somnus/Maybe” Yao
  • China Yang “Chalice” Shenyi
  • China Xu “fy” Linsen
  • Malaysia Yap Jian “xNova: Wei

LGD has returned to the Upper Bracket! With only one match left, the Chinese squad is ready to face, once more, the SEA team  – Mineski

Their last match versus Virtus.Pro was pretty much decided on some key moments, one which will be now known as the “greatest Dark Rift since Un1verse and zai”. LGD managed to withstand the pressure and slowly gain a foothold in the mid-late game.

It was a game of drafts as it was a game of execution and brute force and LGD has proven that they’re all about that.

Can LGD get their revenge on the SEA team and secure the title, on their home turf? It remains to be seen.
