Too bad their draft was pretty good, but they didn't execute it well.
In terms of drafting,they never fully committed to a strat,be it a push strat or a greed draft,they always drafted in the middle,not fully committing for anything and leaving themselves with ambiguous win conditions.In terms of play,again it was mediocre.Nobody was playing particularly badly,nor anyone particularly well.People were putting lots of blame on Silent in many games,but aside from the Gyro game I didn't see him as the weak link,infact in one or two games e.g. vs Og he was the only one playing above par I would say.In short,nobody on the Vp squad was taking chances or making plays and it cost them.
Out of every non-Chinese team at the event,they were the team who most lacked an identity when it came to the meta,and that cost them.We know they had the least amount of games on the patch out of all the teams,maybe that was part of the issue,but if they want to do better in upcoming tourneys,they need to find their own style.Once you've found a comfortable playstyle in a meta,then you can adapt from it and play different styles on top of that.Vp at Shanghai just looked like a team with absolutely no direction.
Just my few thoughts on the team.I'm not Dota expert,but I do watch alot of games and I can understand the problems Vp had at Shanghai and why it cost them,hopefully people understand where I'm coming from.Also unless there are internal issues between the players,I don't think a roster change is necessary,even if for the simple reason that there's no significant upgrade avaliable from the current Cis player pool.

XBOCT is not as bad as everyone makes him out to be. Sure, not the best carry, but seeing the state of the CIS region, he can easily be considered top 5 at least. It's not like VP is playing that great anyway, this isn't going to make much difference unless fng was preparing hard for a online tournament.
XBOCT and fng meet again... will XBOCT kick him out of VP too?
Id assume those are the position roles as it makes the most sense. I like yoky and aloha, i think they are an upgrade, but as NS said: "Trade-up NoFear for Lil is like two times worse than Bulba for Universe" which i can agree. Lil has got to be the best support in the CIS region for more then a year by far.
I am hopeful for the new roster but i think the main problem still remains, and that is Fng, as much as it pains me to say it, its his utterly abysmal play and very questionable drafts that made VP from a top 5 team in previous patch drop to what they are now, probably the worst team on 6.86 that has 4-12 win loss ratio if im correct.
I have enjoyed this team since it started out as NVMI with Goblak drafts, and it was great to have a good CIS team with weird drafts and the aggressive CIS manfight style while Navi was in the dumpster. Since TI they seem to have been just puttering along at the baseline, so I kind of understand, but I think I would not call it one of my favorite teams anymore.
