Day 1 of the Main Event of TI6 ended with one of the big dogs (OG) sent to the lower bracket. What lies in store for DotA on Day 2? Live results and highlights here.
Many tears were shed over the teams that didn’t make it through the first round of losses and their subsequent disqualifications. TNC eliminated VG.R, LGD beat Secret, Fnatic dispatched Escape, and Navi got washed out by Liquid.
I’m particularly bummed about Navi not making it farther. Beyond being a crowd favorite, I thought they performed better than Liquid in the Group Stage.
Well, that and I’ve never really been a big fan of Liquid. I respect their lineup, but never really connected with them the way I did Navi.
Of the four matches scheduled, I’m most excited for the ones in the lower bracket. There’s been so much drama already around TNC with the visas, what a great surprise it would be if they turned out to be serious contenders, especially since OG was favored at the start of TI6 to take the title.
The other lower bracket match has DC playing against LGD, and I really think that game will be nasty. DC has been solid all through the group stage, and LGD knows that this is their moment to snatch some glory.
- Upper Bracket Quarter Finals: Ehome vs Alliance; EG vs Newbee
- Lower Bracket Round 2: OG vs TNC; DC vs LGD
As games finish, the next in the series will begin as soon as players are ready. You won’t have much time in between games, so make those minutes count.
The TI6 broadcast begins at 10 AM PDT, but if you’re only interested in the games, those are scheduled to begin at 10:30 AM PDT.
