China prevails at MDL Chengdu Major

Dota 2 Cristy “Pandoradota2” Ramadani

As the end of MDL Chengdu Major approaches, China has clinched two spots in the top three finishes so far. 

The home crowd couldn't have been any happier. In front of the rollicking mass of fans, two of China's representatives at MDL Chengdu Major made their nation and fans proud.

Invictus Gaming started off the day sweeping through J.Storm 2:0 to continue their lower bracket journey. The Summit 11 Minor championship team decimated the NA squad in the first game and despite a decent start for J.Storm in the second game, it took only one bad fight and fast item builds for iG to overwhelm them in the second match. 

In the upper brackets, Vici Gaming served TNC Predator their first loss (two to be exact) in the event. A surprise mid-lane last pick Huskar for ViCi Gaming threw a monkey wrench into TNC's plans and ViCi Gaming destroyed the SEA team in under 30 minutes. The second game TNC had taken much control of the majority of the game, but ViCi Gaming did their best to prolong the game to get their hero's online. Despite a 20k gold lead, TNC couldn't close things out and eventually, ViCi Gaming was able to seize the barracks and throne. Their victory slid them into the grand finals for a clear shot at the first Major trophy of the DPC 2019-2020 season. 

iG were up once again, this time to face off against the NA giants Evil Geniuses. iG absolutely shellacked EG in the first match up, but EG aren't ones to take things lightly. The second match they paid it back fully with a stomp of their own and tied up the series. Massive team fight potential and an early lead gave iG all of the tools and space they needed to easily claim the last game and the series, moving into the top three position and once again advancing further into the lower bracket finals.
