We’re done with the Group Stages and now we enter into the business end of The International 2016 – the Main Event. Some big teams are on their last legs as they battle it out in the lower bracket, while we also have some surprise entrants looking to progress in the upper bracket. Let’s take a look at the upcoming games and who’s gonna make it through!
MVP vs OG (2-0 OG)
MVP run an incredibly aggressive dual core strategy and I’ve written them off against OG - Just like Na`vi. OG is the greatest team in the world against aggressive early or mid game strategies and it’s not even close. Cr1t and Fly excel at rotations to assist Miracle in the mid lane, who is already any extremely difficult player to punish. OG’s weakness, the chink in their very very dense armor, is the formulaic and methodical approach of Chinese teams like LGD and Newbee and to some extent Ehome and Wings. In my eyes, MVP should be grateful they play OG, their direct counter, on the first day. When they lose to OG they are capable of making a deep losers bracket run against virtually all other teams, with the potential of losing to OG again in the grand finals.
