Some of our predictions have come true, it seems! At the very last round of the season, Mouz jumped aboard the already crowded 4th place boat and will have to take part in the breaking of this ever entangled knot, along with VP, aL and NTH. Every one of these four teams sit at 5 points from 9 matches played in the season and therefore enter the Tiebreaker mini-tournament where the last team standing will earn themselves a chance to fight against the top teams in the playoffs (and, potentially, take the Season 3 Champion title).
But that’s not it! There’s also still one more match left to play in the last round of The Premier League Season 3, and what a match it is. Empire, a team that has been dominating almost every oponent they have run into from the very beginning of the competition, and FnaticRC, the rising Dota 2 power with a winning streak that’s none the less impressive. Both teams are positioned in the top 3 tier (alongside Dignitas) and will face each other in the final clash of the season that will directly decide 1st place! You can check the schedule of this match as well as the Tiebreakers below:
As we can see, the first tiebreaker between VP and NTH will start tomorrow, 20:30 CET. We wanted to hear some predictions about who will come on top in this nerve-wrecking last-minute qualifier, so we asked Empire.Scandal‘s opinion. Here’s what he had to say:
Roman “Scandal” Sadotenkov:
"I think VP vs. NTH will be a very tough match since both teams are quite good, but I’m not sure mouz vs. aL. aL had some troubles with their roster so I believe mouz will take this. And in the finals I think VP/NTH will defeat whichever team comes out of the mouz vs. aL match."
Even though one trusts Scandal’s instinct as a top professional player, it’s probably best to tune in and find out from first hand. So, prepare your snacks and liquids, kick back and turn on your Dota TV (get tickets below!) to experience some in-game turbulent Dota 2 action with, as ever, reassuring guidance from Triumph of Man!
