Only three teams are left as the final day approaches of DreamLeague Season 10 Minor. Tigers, RNG and Na'Vi will be battling it out for the first Minor championship title of the new season. 

Na'Vi and Infamous were not two of the teams that most people would have hedged their bets on to be fighting for a top-three finish, but here we were. With an absolutely flawless first game by Idan "MagicaL" Vardanian on Alchemist, Na'Vi easily took the first match off the South Americans. The new Ukrainian mid player followed it up by another spectacular performance in the second match and although things didn't come as easy for Na'Vi in their second round, they still came out ahead with a convincing performance. 

Tigers and RNG battled it out in the upper bracket finals for access to the grand finals. After a hard fought battle to take the first game in the final moments, Tigers were not able to keep their momentum going for a 2:0 sweep. Despite having the lead most of the second game and seeming to be in control, it was RNG this time that would snatch the victory out from under their opponent's noses. A tied up series meant a deciding game three but seemed almost anti-climatic after the thrilling first two matches as Tigers steamrolled over RNG and easily claimed the win. 

With Tiger's victory, they became the first grand finalists and are only one step away from claiming the championship title and ticket to Kuala Lumpur Major.
