We start today with a best of three match – Na’Vi vs Orange.
Na’Vi has won first place in the 1st International, second in the 2nd, are they destined for third place in the 3rd? No one can count them out yet. They beat Orange in their first meeting on the main stage but lost in two straight to Alliance. Will they keep their eye on the first match or will they be caught looking for revenge later this afternoon?
Orange will be tough competition. After their first loss to Na’Vi, they have won and played more games than anyone else. On Wednesday they followed their loss with a win over Dignitas. After a break on Thursday they started their marathon run – a single elimination win on Friday over Fnatic, then a loss in the first of three against DK. They woke Saturday morning and won two straight against DK and then came back that night to win two of three against TongFu only to have to wake up this morning and face Na’Vi once again.
Alliance waits for the winner. They have cruised through The International with only one loss to DK in both group and main stages. Teams have called them the scariest team they play – but most pick Na’Vi over Alliance to win it all. WIll they prove them wrong and win it all on their first visit to The International?
There are three teams starting today and only one will lift The Aegis of Champions tonight.
