posted by nincompoop, 1 year ago

LightOfHeaven before his first match of the day
The day starts with both favorites of the group playing against the two underdogs: Na`Vi vs CT and CLG vs MAD. Will we be able to witness a miracle today with any of the dark horses using a surprise special tactic to upset their mighty opposition? Or will routine prevail today with Na`Vi and CLG advancing without much effort?
