Royal Never Give Up finished in group 1 at the top. The relatively young Chinese roster, with LaNm in charge managed to win all the matches. They got three decisive wins so far, beating tough opponents NiP, CIS and BOOM ID.  They are going to face newly created NA team Forward Gaming on April 25 in the Dota PIT Minor Playoffs.

BOOM ID is another promising Asian team. Although they lost their chance to visit Paris Major, the squad mastered up its strength and qualified to Minor standing up against WG.U, EVOS, and Neon. With final score, 2-1, they will face off  EHOME in playoffs.

They made it through the qualifier without a single defeat hitting the first place in the group; 3-0 was the final score. They managed to get a victory in a single game of the group. Perhaps this is the time for Alliance to shine.

Newly-fangled SA roster Majestics is another promising team. Tha’s the thing about underdogs. You have no idea what to expect from them as they are unpredictable. That is exactly what happened to EHOME and Forward Gaming. They suffered excruciating defeats from young and talented players.  I’s only Alliance who could stop their never-ending win streak. Apart from that, Majestics has a good chance to win the tournament. We will see how it all works out in playoffs where they’ll face off with Ninja in Pyjamas.

EHOME, a prominent Chinese organization with legendary players on the board, was able to pull out a single victory against Forward Gaming in the final match of a Dota PIT Minor group stage. Nevertheless, we should forget that the’re playing without their main offlaner. Whatever the case may be, le’s hope they will show their best in the playoffs against BOOM ID. After a spectacular match with frenzy team fights against FWD, we can really see that they are hungry for victories.

The relatively young roster of Forward Gaming did not manage to pull out a single victory in the group stage. With Sumail’s brother and overwhelming experience of Sneyking and CCnC, they still ended up with 0-3 in a final score. The team is running though difficult times hitting mainly 13-16 places for the past month or two. In every single match of the group stage they were a hair away from success. On April 25, they will face off favorites Royal Never Give Up.
