TI International Invitational Tournament is getting closer and closer, and the qualifiers of each division are also in full swing. The CIS CIS qualifiers ended the group stage late at night on July 8. What is shocking is that the Gambit team known as the "Red Star Teacher" was eliminated.
Although the CIS CIS has the largest number of Dota 2 players in the world, the overall level of their professional teams has not been very good. Except for the VP team that is the leader, the other teams are in the state of a Major round.
And Gambit can be regarded as one of the few CIS teams that performed well in the foreign war. The top five EG teams in DPC points have been swept by them, but their civil war seems to Not strong, unable to break through the domestic Major qualifiers.
Gambit performed brilliantly in the Major Minor competition, but he was still short of breath and fell to the finals twice in a row.
The Ehome and VG teams that defeated them have achieved very good results in the Major, so Gambit is also remembered by domestic players and named "Red Star Teacher".
At the last Major Epicenter Cup of the season, GambiAfter regretting to lose to Alliance in the knockout round, he announced that he was completely out of TI9 direct invitation. I believe that the players are confident that the Red Star teacher Gambit will break through the CIS CIS qualifiers.
But no one thought that the Red Star teacher lost the opportunity to go to Shanghai to participate in the TI9 International Invitational due to poor performance last night.
It’s worth mentioning that in the life and death game against Winstrike, the mid laner Afoninje of the Gambit team played directly after being double-teamed by four opponents in the mid-term." GG" and immediately withdrew from the competition.
Although the Gambit team was at a disadvantage when they were broken all the way, they were only lagging behind their opponents by 6000, and the three big brothers were economically healthy If you stabilize the situation in the later time and catch the opponent's mistakes, it can be said that it is not a completely unwinnable game.
Afoninje’s lineIn order to say that there is no sportsmanship, the Gambit team officially announced that he will be punished for his actions.
Recall Gambit’s bleak ending of this season, due to a gap of only about 450 points and missed TI9 direct invitation. In fact, Afoninje has to bear some responsibility, because before the Kiev Minor match in March, Afoninje took the initiative to give up the game and choose to participate in the WESG match with the four VP teams in Chongqing.
Gambit In the end, they lost to the VG team at the Kiev Minor and failed to advance to the Major. If Afoninje did not choose to participate in WESG, maybe they could get a good place in the Dream League and get valuable DPC points.
Gambit’s absence is indeed regrettable. Their performance in the international arena is impressive, but they are always unable to break through the regional qualifiers.
All teams are one The hard work over the years is to be able to participate in TAt the I International Invitational, Gambit fell in the qualifiers again and it was embarrassing.
The qualifiers in the Chinese division will be three days later At the start of the war, only one of the eight Chinese teams can get tickets to the Mercedes-Benz Center. I believe it will be another tragic match.
