Ruthless Predator devour their prey

It was the most one-sided game of the day — TNC Predator took down the South Americans of paiN Gaming in a brutal contest that saw the latter pick up just four kills. Three of Predator’s lineup recording perfect-KDA games as they raced to victory in just 23 minutes. They next face a best-of-three series against Alliance.
Tigers feel the paiN of elimination
Rough groupstage, managed to beat tigers in the lower bracket. Playing VG the day after tommorow.— Rodrigo Lelis (@lelisdota) November 11, 2018
Groupstage dificil, ganhamos da tigers na lowerbracket. Jogaremos contra a VG depois de amanhã.
Meanwhile, paiN’s other team, the Quinn 'CCnC' Callahan-led paiN X, fared better as they took down SEA’s Tigers. It was a comfortable win in which the mix team never once fell behind, racking up more than twice as many kills and a 14k advantage by the end — with Rodrigo 'Liposa' Santos enjoying a perfect KDA. They closed out the win inside 36 minutes to set up a clash with Vici Gaming.
Aster caught up in a Storm
It wasn’t a good day at the office for the Chinese galacticos of Team Aster. Coach Xu 'BurNIng' Zhilei saw his side fall to a J.Storm side brimming with confidence — in particular David 'Moo' Hull, who absolutely obliterated Aster with a 22/6/17 performance. Next up for the North Americans is a battle with Daryl 'iceiceice' Koh and his Fnatic side.
Resolut1on keeps marching Forward
GG, @GambitEsports! We take the game and our #KualaLumpurMajor journey continues. Our next match is against @EvilGeniuses tomorrow at 6:00am EST/7:00pm MYT. Who is ready for another round of the #HassanBowl? #PushForward pic.twitter.com/RoEPlquhEn— Forward Gaming (@goFORWARDgg) November 12, 2018
Finally, in the day’s last game, Roman 'Resolut1on' Fominok did what he often does best in carrying his team to a win over CIS side Gambit Esports. He picked up 11 kills, with Yawar 'YawaR' Hassan hot on his heels, as Forward Gaming overcame a 20-minute deficit. It wasn’t a comfortable win, but effective, and now they will face Evil Geniuses in an all-NA showdown.
Can any of the Lower Bracket teams go all the way?
