OG pick Na'Vi in the semis. No NA or Chinese teams in final 4 of Macau Minor

posted by Malystryx.GDS,
The MDL Macau Minor will conclude tomorrow and eu OG have chosen ua Natus Vincere as their semi-final opponent.

OG choose Na'Vi. TNC matched with Virtus Pro
OG, who finished top of the 9 team groupstage, won convincingly against Na'Vi in the bo1 round-robin so their choice to face the CIS team again in the semis makes a lot of sense. Na'Vi were beaten badly by ua Roman 'Resolut1on' Fominok's Morphling, a hero TNC's ph Marc Polo Luis 'Raven' Fausto also used to great effect to beat EHOME.

The other two playoff finalists are ru Virtus.pro, who OG lost to in the groupstage, and ph TNC Predator who gave OG a really hard game despite ultimately being defeated. It's important to note that Virtus Pro are competing with their coach ua Ivan 'Artstyle' Antonov at the MDL Macau Minor after captain ru Aleksey 'Solo' Berezin decided to take a break until 2018.

It is the first time OG have made it to the final 4 on the Pro Circuit since it began in September and the single elimination bracket means they are just 1 win away from a Grand Finals.

Despite 3 of the 9 teams coming from China, including 2 of the direct invites, there are no Chinese representatives in the final four. Direct invite cn PSG.LGD finished dead last with us Is GG* in the groupstage and cn LGD.Forever Young along with cn EHOME ended joint 5th. EHOME had ended day 1 undefeated but come day 2 they were fighting for survival in their match against TNC.
