Fnatic

 

  • Jacky “EternaLEnVy” Mao
  • Abed “Abed” Azel Yusop
  • Saahil “UNiVeRsE”Arora
  • Djardel “DJ” Mampusti
  • Johan “pieliedie” Åström

Fnatic’s been meaning to put on a show of force, but it seems to lack that “oumpf!” as game one victories lead to tied matches, rather than 2-0 victories.

Fnatic is strong. Their players are performing really well, with Abed wrecking havoc on Meepo and Storm, but as they go up the NET graph, one mistake can cost them dearly.

Abed has been the highlight in this tournament with some fantastic Meepo plays in their opening game. His presence was not felt until the ~ 20-minute mark, but when once Meepo came and hit, he hit like a truck. Abed’s superior handling of this hero and solid decision making really gave OpTic a run for its money, despite the fact that they were seemingly leading in the early to mid game.

Still, it was not all Meepo or Abed in these past matches. Fnatic’s support and cores, despite giving a few kills, managed to dish out significant punishment throughout the game. Some solid rotations with hard-hitting stunners such as Maiden or Clockwerk were vital to the mounting farm that Fnatic managed to secure each game.

It seems that tournament Fnatic is experimenting with new drafts and even rotating some players out of the usual lanes (Universe mid, Abed rotating from mid to safe and to offlane, EE from support to carry etc.), a fact that might explain why Fnatic can’t seem to secure a 2-0.  The “experimental” stuff always happen in game, where the team struggles the most.

Evil Geniuses

  • Artour “Arteezy” Babaev
  • Sumail “Suma1L” Hassan
  • Gustav “s4” Magnusson
  • Andreas “Cr1t-” Nielsen
  • Tal “Fly”Aizik

EG’s returning plays are promising as Sumail’s mid-presence recalls the days of glory that made EG, alongside other factors, a TI champion.

Although we have yet to see EG face-off against a more demanding opponent, what we’ve seen so far in the first day of the DOTA Summit 9 Group Stage has us wanting for more.

EG is checking a lot of boxes when it comes to making good play-by-play decisions, rotating naturally between farming, applying pressure and securing objective around the map, although this view might be slightly inflated by the slightly lower tier in which they are playing in, at the moment.

Sumail’s positioning has been fairly spot on, so far, although we saw some moments of overconfidence and risky dives for some kills that were neither needed, nor really worth the consequence of dying.

We have high hopes for this team. It seems that these past few moments were put into enhancing the new team synergy and creating proper conditions for its players to fully execute some highly entertaining and impressive plays.

OpTic Gaming

 

  • Sweden Per “Pajkatt” Olsson Lille
  • USA Quinn “CC&C” Callahan
  • Israel Neta “33” Shapira
  • Sweden Ludwig “zai” Wahlberg
  • USA Peter “ppd” Dager

OpTic Gaming’s recent ability to adapt to certain line-ups could prove to a path worth investing in. Also, the team’s coordination in fights is looking better and better after each game, which could lead to OpTic Gaming becoming a favourable contender in the upcoming TI.

33 and zai prove to quite a fearsome combination in the laning phase, as 33’s recent early-game aggression with Necrophos (aided by zai’s Skywrath Mage) really put the heat onto EE and pieliedie for the first ten minutes. 33’s creeping pestilence is what we would’ve like to see going into the mid-game, but with a crippled top and mid lane, the game quickly turned in favour of Fnatic.

OpTic Gaming’s aforementioned adaptability to the opponents draft came into play the second game:  game 1 had Meepo, played by Abed, come in to sweep a fairly unprepared OpTiC, but the second game started with a strong „anti-meepo” and resilient draft coming for the black and green squad.

And it worked, although with some failing here and there, OpTic Gaming managed to withstand most of the early game onslaught (even bringing some fights in the top lane)  and the „crashing tide” that was Meepo in game 1, turned more into a breeze-blown wave by minute 20.
The dramatic shift of pace from one game to another should encourage OpTic to further experiment with counter-draftings that can execute to shut down the star player of a team, although only focusing on these kinds of strats could end up handicapping them. We hope they find the right balance and see even more aces up their sleeves.

paiN Gaming

  • Brazil William “hFn” Medeiros
  • Romania Aliwi “w33” omar
  • Brazil Otavio “tavo” Gabriel
  • Brazil Danylo “Kingrd” Nascimento
  • Brazil Heitor “Duster” Pereira

paiN Gaming’s still struggling to turn their early-game advantage into anything meaningful in the later stages of the game. While some players can, individually, push the odds in their favour, it seems that is far from enough for the team to succeed.

The Brazilian squad has a rough time gaining any control of the mid-game, due to a  somewhat unintentional reliance on individual players to succed. In their latest matchups, we saw some moments of greatness coming from paiN, but also a fair amount of mistakes, misplays and bad positioning that closely followed the previous and these hurt the most.

w33’s been a dominating presence in all games, be it in-lane or in teamfights as well as tavo, but it seems that paiN Gaming’s individual prowess doesn’t translate at all into team success. paiN’s chaotic wandering and the sometimes confusing positioning end up rendering all that farm that it’s players gathered pointless, as the enemy team can recover from one or two botched teamfights.

It saddens us to see these kinds of developments, but we are hopeful that paiN Gaming can improve their act before TI.

OpTic Gaming

 

  • Sweden Per “Pajkatt” Olsson Lille
  • USA Quinn “CC&C” Callahan
  • Israel Neta “33” Shapira
  • Sweden Ludwig “zai” Wahlberg
  • USA Peter “ppd” Dager

Despite being in the Lower Bracket, OpTic Gaming’s been kicking some serious ass in the past days. Two 2-0 victories has crowned the NA squad the King of Lower Bracket, but now the team will meet it’s first true opponent in the form of Virtus Pro.

Looking back at the game that transpired yesterday, we have to bring up ppd’s fantastic impact in drafting the heroes and captaining them through the match. Although the first game vs. TnC seemed a bit chaotic, it was the drafting that painted a clear picture of its outcome.

Even more in the second game, when the all-magick line-up of TnC was severely flawed, a flaw that OpTic managed to punish through its draft. The Huskar, the Rubick and the terrifying presence of a Lycan + Slardar spelt the doom of an army of „crummy wizards”.

The team executions were still dicey at times, with supports diving in a little too deep and getting piled on by the enemy heroes. It is clear that OpTic needs to exercise a little more caution when going in for a more cheecky kill. Even so, OpTic managed to outweigh its mistakes through good coordination and keeping its draft goal’s in mind: punish, murder, secure objectives.

Virtus Pro

  • Russia Roman “RAMZES666” Kushnarev
  • Ukraine Vladimir “No[o]one” Minenko
  • Russia Pavel “9pasha” Khvastunov
  • Russia Vladimir “RodjER” Nikogosyan
  • Russia Alexei “Solo” Berezin

Virtus Pro finding itself in the Lower Bracket has come to a surprise to many, after the team was considered almost unbeatable, almost.

It seems that PSG.LGD has cracked the code to VP’s highly-aggressive playstyle and that it even managed to punish VP’s eagerness to start a fight. VP did not expect such fierce retaliation from LGD, as many of the foes that end up running from the CIS squad usually end up dead.

VP continues to adhere to its playstyle, as tower-diving skirmishes did happened and the outcome was in favour for VP, but not to the extent that we or they were used to.

LGD’s drafting offered a great amount of survivability through its supports, but also through some of the core heroes, such as Bloodseeker and Brewmaster.  VP underestimated their opponents and the way they played, as the CIS team fell for a masterful „bait and switch” kind of tactic. Ember Spirit added an extra layer to it, being a hero able to relocate with ease.

It is important to take a good look at why VP failed in this last match-up so that we can see what the future may hold for its upcoming opponents. VP’s style is of immense power, in part due to the drafts and it’s players, but VP needs to show a little more restraint when facing opponents who are wise of how they operate so that it can avoid getting lured into some seriously disadvantageous positions and the engagements that come out of them.

PSG. LGD

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

LGD continues to impress this season with a 2-0 lead in the fourth Group of the China Dota 2 Supermajor.

PSG.LGD’s consistency throughout comes with a certain ease, as the team’s presence in a match-up offers a great degree of success when betting. That being said, LGD is far from being boring, as the squad managed to pull some serious stuns this tournament.

fy God’s being pulling his usual fy God manoeuvres with a superb hook and rocket in their match-up versus Infamous, a game that has also shown’ LGD’s prowess even when the drafting might not really favour them, on paper.
There isn’t much to say about LGD, without seemingly fanboying, but the team impresses with their strong mix of skills, centred around team-coordinated fights, as well as small skirmishes or one-versus-one engagements.

LGD is not only looking like it could take the first place in the tournament, but they have been also shaping up into a strong contender to this year’s TI title. Their plays are solid, consistent and they still have room for some really impressive and memorable executions.

Mineski

 

  • Malaysia Chai “Mushi” Yee Fung
  • Malaysia Kam “Moon” Boon Seng
  • Singapore Daryl “iceiceice” Koh Pei Xiang
  • Thailand Anucha ” jabz” Jirawong
  • Philippines Michael “ninjaboogie” Ross Jr.

Minseki’s recent ascension in the pro ranks has made itself visible in the past days, as the team managed to take down  The Final Tribe once and VGJ.S twice, in the Group Stage.

Moon was an indomitable force with his Timbersaw, but as some pointed out they do tend to overextend, although no one was able to seriously punish them for this. We have seen before, that overconfidence can be a slow and insidious killer and Mineski are quite pushing the limit on this one.

Jabz also stood out yesterday with one fantastic Rubick play, but a play that team couldn’t materialize into a victory, even worse the game ended tragically for the squad, with a disappoiting throw.

The SEA squad has great potential and their drafting seems to be working out for them, but Mineski seems to run out of steam pretty fast in each of their games, leaving them prone to do some questionable plays and overextensions that can seriously cost them a series.
