The new Mineski have qualified for their second Minor with less than 10 games under their belt as a team.
Mineski are finally starting to see significant results after Mushi joined back in March

Mushi's recipe for new season working perfectly
Mushi had limited time to put together a solid team from the available players to qualify for TI7 but the recruitment of my Kam 'Moon' Boon Seng, sg Daryl Koh 'iceiceice' Pei Xiang and th Anucha 'Jabz' Jirawong to the team in the summer reshuffle is transforming their results in SEA. Mineski already qualified for the PGL Open Bucharest last week and now they've qualified for their second Minor.

Mineski will now be attending the first Minor on the Dota 2 calendar, Starladder i-League Season 3 following a thumping victory over ph TNC Predator. TNC had done incredibly well to close out their bo3 series with ph Execration in an intense third game, but they were miles away from posing a threat to Mineski who played them straight after in the Grand Finals of the SEA Regional Qualifiers for Starladder i-League Season 3.

Mushi's Lifestealer took control of the first game as his former Fnatic team-mate ph Marc Polo Luis 'Raven' Fausto's Morphling struggled to make an impact for TNC. Mineski's third new addition in the transfer window my Kam 'Moon' Boon Seng played a pivotal role in setting up Mushi for kills on Mirana with Jabz' Naga Siren Sleep the perfect initation for Sacred Arrow. Sadly for TNC they never really got into the game.

Mineski stuck to the formula for game 2 keeping the Naga Siren and the Mirana, banning Lifestealer themselves to later last pick Troll Warlord. TNC started game 2 much better than the 1st, taking out Mushi's Troll Warlord 5 times in the first 15 minutes and likewise disposing of Nana's Mirana three times.

However, once the early game ended and both Mirana and Troll picked up BKBs then it was a very different story as TNC had very little in the way of physical damage outside of Raven's AntiMage.

Mineski closed the series 2-0 to win the only and only slot at the Starladder i-League Season 3 LAN Finals to be held in Kiev later this month. The addition of three new players has had a massive impact on results, and reunited Mushi with a very old friend.

Mushi and Iceiceice were part of the highly successful Team DK from 2013-2014

Mushi and iceiceice have a history of success together
Iceiceice although mostly recently known for being the captain of Faceless was part of a Chinese superstar team called Team DK alongside Mushi in the 2013-2014 season, with their team-mates cn Xu 'BurNIng' Zhilei, cn Zhi Cheng 'LaNm' Zhang and cn Zeng Rong 'MMY' Lei.

Iceiceice and Mushi are the most decorated SEA players of all-time, so the early success of Mineski's new roster is not completely unexpected. Mineski have won 8 of their opening 9 matches so far this season, with their only defeat a 1-0 loss to Fnatic.
