The Final SEA Hope at TI8 is Eliminated by Virtus.pro

After we said goodbye to Team Serenity, it was time to say goodbye to either Virtus.pro or Mineski as the Lower Bracket of The International 2018 continued. While VP had an amazing DPC season, coming into TI8’s Group Stages they did not look as strong as expected, however the team still managed to secure 2nd place in their group and an Upper Bracket spot. But going up against PSG.LGD saw them fall and they’d be fighting for their tournament life. Mineski, on the other hand, somehow managed to sneak a victory over their regional counterparts, TNC, and thus were hoping to keep the SEA flag flying by beating VP. Game one was quite a wild ride which seemed to be going completely in VP’s favour as they seemed to have complete control – but Mineski found some life before 25 minutes which gave them an opportunity to get themselves back into the game – especially after securing a dieback on Roman ‘RAMZESS’ Kushnarev’s Clinkz.



But it was not to last and while the SEA squad did their best to stretch the game out to their favour, it wasn’t enough and VP closed it out, killing off all 5 of their opponents twice in the closing team fight. To become the first series at the Main Event of TI8 to go to 3 games, Mineski would need a victory but VP would be looking to close things out. The CIS squad went into the game looking much better than they did in the previous game, not really giving Mineski a chance to answer their fast pace. Nothing went the way of the SEA team as the game continued and VP’s lead kept growing along with their heroes. By little over half an hour, SEA was all out of The International 2018 as Virtus.pro eliminated Mineski from the tournament with a 2-0 victory. The CIS squad move forward now to their next elimination match-up which will see them going up against OpTic Gaming. Day 2 is a wrap in Vancouver and we’re left with 8 teams competing for that massive prize pool and the prestige of the Aegis of Champions. Tomorrow kicks off with 2 more teams being eliminated before the Upper Bracket gets underway once more.
