Mineski
vs
Team Kinguin

ODPixel: "This game's not over. This game is not over."
Luminous: "Eehh... It's over. It's over. Haha. I mean - it's over."
Narrator: It wasn't over...

Team Kinguin are back 0-1 in a bo3 and need to get this game. Mineski is sporting a few good heroes, but weirdly enough also an Outworld Devourer in safe lane, who rushes a meteor hammer out of all items and kind of seems lost half the time.
This is one of those really unique games that simply stands out of the crowd by being completely different from what you'd expect.

Enjoy!

LGD Gaming
vs
Virtus.pro

Everything is on the line. This is the deciding match in the lower bracket final at the Dota Asia Championship 2018. Local favourites LGD need to reach the final in order to qualify for TI8 and to stand a chance of giving China its first major winner. They face the consensus best team in the world, Virtus Pro, who are going for their third straight major win. LGD pick fast-paced lineup built around Maybe's Leshrac whilst Virtus Pro go for a more balanced draft with a Ramzes Terrorblade. This game features a fast start, several changes of momentum and a sublime play which sets up a dramatic victory and sends TobiWan into a high-pitched frenzy.

Invictus Gaming

Prepare for the long awaited return of DAC 2017 form Xxs, who now plays mid lane, Aggresif more than living up to his name and Boboka picking an obscure hero and proceeding to make it look utterly game breaking in multiple instances... aka, being Boboka. FTD come out swinging in game 2, and take IG to their limit, and then past it.
Action packed late game until the crazy ending.

Gambit Esports
vs
Alliance

One of the biggest throws in recent times.

A back and forth slugfest between a farmed Spectre and a farmed Huskar, with some incredible Rubick plays from Insania. No matter how sure you might be which team is going to win, it's going to change every few minutes again. The game could go either way down to the last 30 seconds.

Virtus.pro
vs
Team Secret

The underdogs take on the favourites of the tournament in an intense game with breath-taking end game fights and great split-pushing. G going ham on his Storm Spirit and VP using their trademark Drow+Visage combo. Overall a great game to watch by some of the best players in the world.

FlipSid3 Tactics
vs
Keita Gaming

Push/Heal-strat and hilarious missuse of blade mail.

This game is played during a time where pro Dota 2 often consisted of long games with Tinker slowly split-pushing the enemy to bits. The way he's countered in this game is quite effective, punishing the enemy team for relying solely on the tactic. It's one of the great, funny games that are often overlooked.

Lie back and enjoy the show.

Fnatic
vs
Evil Geniuses

ESL One Birmingham 2018, one of the last tournaments of the year, started of with a bang as both teams needed DPC points to secure an invite to the International 2018.

Fnatic drafted an IO and Morphling and decided they didn't want to fight the formidable tri-core Evil Geniuses lineup head on. Out came another classic Eternal Envy strat based around relocate backdooring EG buildings. Can EG push fast enough to defeat the rat? Will a rapier help? The game ends with a base race to remember.

Virtus.pro
vs
LGD.Forever Young

LGD.Forever Young, the youngsters from China who dominated the group stage at TI7, take on the CIS powerhouse of Virtus.pro with a top 3 finish at TI7 on the line. Game 1 mirrored their group stage matchup as LFY decimated VP in quick fashion. With their backs against the wall, VP went for a less flashy lineup that included Viper and Disruptor. LFY answered with a Pugna, Faceless Void and Nature's Prophet lineup. Nevertheless, the game became an intense back-and-forth affair before VP secured themselves a 12k gold lead and began knocking on LFY's door. Still, LFY would not back down and drove the game into further chaos. Intense team fights, fantastic wombo combos, and a clutch Aegis steal make this game worthwhile to watch.
