Mineski to Take On LGD Gaming for the PGL Open 2017 Title

After taking down the Ukrainians, the North Americans and the Koreans, Mineski now have their eyes set on taking down the titans of China in LGD Gaming in the Grand Finals of the PGL Open 2017 Minor tournament. This is Mineski’s 2nd Grand Finals appearance of the young season — they lost to Team Liquid 3-1 in the Grand Finals of the Starladder Minor last week. Meanwhile, for LGD Gaming, this will be their first. Either way, both teams will look to try to make the most out of this rare opportunity; PGL Open 2017 will be their last Pro Circuit tournament appearance until the Perfect World Minor on November 19. Much has been said about Immortals’ penchant for showing up in LANs as a much better team.

And though they lost to LGD Gaming back on Day 1 of the tournament, they didn’t exactly go down without putting up a fight. After taking down Team Secret yesterday, Immortals now faced the tall task of taking down a Mineski team that have looked dominant against every team they’ve faced so far save for the defending TI champions. Immortals proved that they were unfazed after taking Game 1 on the backs of the vaunted Phantom Assassin of Kim ‘QO’ Seon-yeop. However, Mineski would quickly learn their lesson in both Games 2 and 3, removing Phantom Assassin from the hero pool. In Game 2, Mineski went with a tri-core hero line of Pugna, Monkey King, and Mirana. Although QO and his Sven spent much of the game on top of the net worth, he could not just carry his entire team to victory. Certainly not with Anucha ‘Jabz’ Jirawong with the timely initiations and the rest of Mineski providing enough control to kite him around. The series clincher was a bit of a lopsided affair in favour of Mineski. Once again, Chai ‘Mushi’ Yee Fung came up big on the unconventional Vengeance Spirit core pick, ending the game with a 14-3-12 K/D/A score. Although Kam ‘NaNa’ Boon Seng and his Mirana deserves a lot of credit as well.
