PSG.LGD, who defeated the North American staff 3-0, have been a notch above all groups on the Main and displayed surgical precision proper from drafting to executing smoke ganks in video games, in what was the cleanest show of Dota 2 the neighborhood has seen in a very long time.
The twelve groups which have certified for The Worldwide could have a little bit of a break earlier than TI10, whereas the others will return to the drafting board and check out to determine learn how to convey the perfect out of themselves to make it to Stockholm by the TI10 regional qualifiers.

By way of heroes, the WePlay AniMajor positively confirmed some heroes like Templar Murderer, Broodmother, Phoenix, Puck and Winter Wyvern (to call just a few) to be extraordinarily sturdy on this meta.

The general meta is sort of versatile and some tweaks will result in TI10 being a various occasion by way of hero picks.
