About the playoff qualifications for MDL Chengdu Major:
“Preparation for the enemies was zero. And at the draft stage, we did not understand what to do in the game. In general, they did generally incomprehensible crap, which resulted in some kind of tilt. We did not do what we did before in the square and in the group. Maybe someone lost their nerves, maybe something else – I didn’t really go into it, but we played like crayfish. With the level of the game that we showed in the playoffs, we would not have won open qualifiers. Well, besides, Positive Guys fried us well at the draft, let’s say. With the “olds” was already tilt. ”
About defeating Virtus.pro:
“We knew that we could beat them and were ready for their drafts. If we did not understand Nichrome against Positive Guys, then with VP every peak and every ban was read, disassembled and prepared. No [o] ne is a strong middle and against it you should always give all your best, but tactically we outplayed them in snot.
The CIS region, and we are no exception, it is very poor in the number of strategies. It takes just a few hours, because everyone plays the same thing. It’s just that you need to think over a draft well, how and what to control, and that’s all. ”
HellRaisers took fourth place in the qualification for the MDL Chengdu Major and got into the qualifiers for DOTA Summit 11. The team of Ilya ALOHADANCE Korobkina beat Old But Gold and jfshfh178 and went to the final part of the minor.
