MATCH: Vici Gaming vs Team Aster
Date: Friday, July 24th @ 07:00 CEST
Vici Gaming has been one of the best Dota 2 teams in the past few weeks. The Chinese Dota 2 roster has a depth to its hero pool and can often outlast its outmaneuver its opponents in the draft phase. Vici Gaming topped the group stage with a 7-2 score. The team’s only two losses came against PSG.LGD and CDEC. Despite playing at a disadvantage against Invictus Gaming in Game 1, Vici’s positioning and approach to team fights allowed the team to win team fights at the appropriate moment.
Team Aster has also been a surprise revelation in the past few months. Team Aster had a 2-0 win against Sparking Arrow Gaming in the quarterfinals. Aster’s roster has players like Sccc, Fade and BoBoKa. These players have years of experience playing tier 1 Dota 2.
In the last 2 months, those two teams played 3 times. Vici Gaming won all 3 times with 6-2 map win-loss ratio. They are pretty impressive vs Aster. However, I do think Aster is currently playing much better than before, and they should be able to make things harder for Vici. I am taking Team Aster and Vici Gaming to go over 2.5 maps in the semifinals. The two teams are the best Dota 2 teams in the region and this match will be an extremely competitive best of three series.
