Dota 2: Invictus Gaming vs Vici Gaming TI 10 predictions

Invictus Gaming had strong momentum in their favor at the beginning of the TI 10 main event. They finished on top of the Group A table without dropping a single series, which almost mirrors PSG.LGD's stats at the top of the Group B table. Their strong suit this year is spotless drafting and captaincy coming from Kaka, a veteran with valuable experience from three Internationals and five Majors.

On the other side, Vici Gaming is a worthy adversary to Kaka's team. They were dropped to the lower bracket earlier, in the very first day of the TI 10 main stage by, and their drafting has often seemed very anchored on traditional greedy picks popular in China, like Doom. But in this elimination round, if there is one familiar rival that can possibly withstand Invicus Gaming's signature early-game aggression, it is Vici Gaming. Ori's peak form this year will make his TI rivalry against Emo something for fans to keep their eyes on.
