Na'Vi on the edge - can they make it to the Upper Bracket?

posted by Brasozial,
It's the last day of the group stage at the first Minor of the second Dota 2 Pro Circuit in Stockholm. Only two games are left in the group stage of the DreamLeague Season 10 to decide which teams advance to the Upper Bracket and who'll need to hope for a Lower Bracket run. compLexity Gaming and Tigers can already relax. Both teams finished first in their group and will have their first matches in the Upper Bracket on Thursday.

Meanwhile Rooons and Vega Squadron (EU) finished the group stage in last place with two losses each. That means they'll start in the Lower Bracket. Only two matches are left to determine who the advanced teams will face in the playoffs.

Can Final Tribe utilize the hometown advantage?

The first match today will be between CIS' powerhouse Natus Vincere and the South American mix team at Infamous. Both teams won against Vega Squadron (EU)'s new team which played with Danil 'Dendi' Ishutin as a stand-in.

The second decider match will be between The Final Tribe and Royal Never Give Up. The two teams already met in the first round of the event - back then RNG won the exciting series with a 2-1. Captain Adrian 'Era' Kryeziu and his Swedish teammates recovered from that loss by beating Brian 'BananaSlamJamma' Canavan's team in the second round with a convincing 2-0.

All eight teams competing will earn their first DPC points of the season. However, the Minor winner has the chance to get even more points because they'll be invited to The Kuala Lumpur Major which starts exactly five days after the conclusion of the Minor on November 4th - a long Dota 2 adventure lies ahead of the winner in Stockholm.

Who will make it to the Major?
