After the draw with Execration and the loss to OG and DC, our team is ready for a new match day. We'll have a battle with two teams that have been directly invited to The International 2017. Virtus.pro have shown an excellent season: they won The Summit 6 and 7, but their main triumph could have taken place at The Kiev Major where VP showed spectacular, powerful and diverse Dota, although they made a mistake in the grand final and lost the championship. They are considered to be the main favorites of the event, although their performance at The International hasn't been very consistent: a victory over Digital Chaos, a draw with Execration, a loss to LGD.FY, a map trade with Cloud9 and a win over OG. Virtus.pro need to keep gaining momentum to make it into the top 4 and reach the upper bracket playoff.
The second opponent will be the Chinese from Newbee. The second place at The Manila Masters, wins at Zotac Cup Masters and Galaxy Battles, and also the third place at Mars Dota 2 League 2017 have brought the Chinese teams an invitation to TI7. Newbee has had a decent start: 1:1 with IG, a win over Cloud9, 1:1 with OG and a win over Execration. The Chinese team is dangerous and is ready to fight for every single map with any opponent.
HellRaisers have only one victory under their belt, although points earned in the upcoming battles will let our players improve their position in the standings and please their fans! We believe that HellRaisers will be able to find weak points of the rival and will not miss a victory. This is the first tournament of such a high level for our players, and your support is needed! Let's cheer for them together!
