ESL One Genting 2018: vs. Mineski

Dota 2 / News / 24 January 2018 — 15:13

Elimination battle!

On 25 January, ua NAVI.GG.BET will encounter SEA team ph Mineski. The best of 3 elimination match will begin at 5:00 CET.

This game is of crucial importance for the Born to Win at the tournament, since the loser will have to leave the Minor. The winner will have to play one more match of the group stage – against the winner of ph TNC Pro Team vs. us Evil Geniuses matchup. In other words, ua Natus Vincere will have to win 2 more series to advance to the playoff of ESL One Genting.

Our upcoming rival didn’t have a successful start at the Minor. The team dropped to the lower brackets at once. In the next round Philippine team defeated Chinese line-up cn LFY 2-0. Our team won the first round of the upper brackets against Evil Geniuses, but lost to the winner of The International 2017eu Team Liquid.

The stats of ph Mineski for January 2018 are quite peculiar. The team played 21 maps, only two of them were on the Radiant side. This might mean that the players base most of their strategies and tactics on the Dire side.
Let’s take a look at the picks of our rival: their most favourite heroes are Shadow Shaman (9), Shadow Fiend (8), Tiny (6) and Queen of Pain (6). Each of the abovementioned heroes has an impressive winrate of 60 %. The most “hated” hero of the team is Razor, which has been banned 8 times.

The Born to Win have encountered ph Mineski only once! It was back in the beginning of 2017/2018 gaming season. Our team lost 1-2 then. It’ll be quite interesting to see how the level of performance of both teams has changed ever since. We hope our team has studied their match against eu Team Liquid, analyzed their mistakes and will achieve the victory in the upcoming match! #gonavi
