PSG.LDG - RNG: Vil Somnus sende deres tidligere holdkammerater til potentielle replays?Vanillareich
We close the fifth game week as part of the DPC 2021/2022 Tour 3: Division I of the Chinese region. Today there will be a meeting between the tournament favorites RNG, and PSG.LGD, showing atypically mediocre results. For the former, the victory is purely fundamental, because they have already qualified for the PGL Arlington Major, which means they can not strain much. In turn, PSG.LGD is now in front of a red line, and they urgently need a victory in the match in order not to get into quite probable replays.
RNG went easy on the tournament path, losing only the first match against DEC (0-2), and the only club that caused them difficulties was EHOME (2-1). After that, the favorites confidently started dominating the rest of the opponents: Vici Gaming (2-0), Team Aster (2-0), Aster Aries (2-0), Xtreme (2-0). As a result, they are waiting for the last match, which risks becoming a continuation of the winning streak.
PSG.LGD had a rather controversial series of matches during the tour. In the first week, the team earned a defeat from EHOME (1-2), followed by a victory over DEC (2-1). This was followed by a meeting against Vici Gaming (0-2), and after an easy victory over Aster Aries (2-0). The team played the last match against Xtreme, and it ended in a loss (0-2). Now the leaders of the tournament are waiting for them, and I would not say that their chances of winning are extremely small.
I am sure that the match will be very interesting to watch, since this is a meeting of two Chinese tops, and the second reason is that PSG.LGD will cling to the last opportunity to stay in the first league. However, PSG.LGD is already at The International, and therefore even the theoretical possibility of going to the second division should not scare Ame and the company too much.
Recall that DPC CN 2021/2022 Tour 3: Division I runs from June 7th to July 15th of this year. The top 8 teams in the China region are vying for a $205,000 prize pool, 1,150 DPC points and 4 slots at the PGL Arlington Major. Two outsiders, falls into the second division.
