Vici Gaming take on NewBee in the first quarter finals of the ESL One Genting Minor playoffs. Two of the best teams in the Chinese region will play for a spot in the Semifinals against Team Secret.
Keeping the controversies aside this has been a great tournament, many people still bash this format but I’m loving it because it gives teams a fighting chance to comeback after having a bad start. Talking about bad starts, VG had a disastrous Day 1, losing to VGJ Thunder and almost losing to SG E-sports but after that they’ve picked up their game and have battled it out of the lower bracket.
Their opponents NewBee had a totally different story, they were dominant in the early stages, dropping none of their games until they were beaten by Liquid in the upper bracket finals. There were a lot of positives even in the defeat against Liquid, they stretched Liquid to their maximum, with a win in the first game they looked the better team of the two, but eventually Liquid woke up and started to play some amazing Dota that made them the Champions that they are.
Prediction – It’s going to be a tough prediction, NewBee look in great touch while VG are starting to get to their peak form. But I believe VG will take this one, they have played NewBee a lot in the recent times and have beaten them and know how it done. But it will be a marginal victory, so bet wisely and don’t go all in.
My odds for this match: NewBee 45:55 Vici Gaming
