The big news for Saturday is from the winners bracket; Na`Vi has advanced to the finals by beating Scythe.SG in two straight games. This victory also spots Na`Vi a win in the final series so they are already up against their undecided foe one game to nil.
In the losers bracket MYM was eliminated by EHOME. MYM is sent home with $80,000 and EHOME advances to Sunday’s playoff against Scythe.SG – the same team that sent them down to the loser bracket with a resounding defeat on Friday.
Sunday will start with the best of three elimination series. The loser walks away with $150,000 and the winner will face Na`Vi in the championship match. In the final match the loser there earns a healthy $250,000 but it all pales in comparison to the ultimate champion and their $1,000,000 payday.
Can Scythe.SG turn it around after Saturday’s crushing defeat by Na`Vi and rise up against the two opponents that have beaten them at every meeting?
Can EHOME rise up out of the losers bracket and get revenge against Scythe.SG and then go on to defeat Na`Vi?
Or will the powerhouse of the tournament Na`Vi keep rolling over every opponent in its path?
The questions start getting answered Sunday morning in Germany at 10am CET. The final match to decide it all begins at 1pm local time in Germany or 7pm in China and Singapore, 2 pm in the Ukraine, or even 4am at Valve’s Head Quarters in Seattle. Watch them all live at Dota2.com.
