Perfect World Masters Grand Finals Come Down To Newbee vs VG

Two teams will take center stage tomorrow at the Perfect World Masters Grand Finals. Fittingly enough, it’ll be an epic rematch between ViCi Gaming and Newbee.  And, this time around, it’s a best-of-five Grand Finals of a Pro Circuit LAN that will most likely decide who the best Dota 2 team in China is right now.

LFY and CompLexity Fall Short

Can you just imagine what it would’ve been like had either one of LFY or CompLexity Gaming made it to the Perfect World Grand Finals? Even if they’d lost to the eventual winners, surviving the best-of-ones and making it so close to winning it all is an achievement in itself. Especially for CompLexity Gaming, who are looking to solidify their status as legitimate contenders. After all, it was only a few months ago that they struggled to qualify for any LAN tournament and ultimately missed out on TI7.

Unfortunately, we’ll have to save the feel-good story for another tournament. There was no room for upsets in the penultimdate day of the Perfect World Masters.

While CompLexity Gaming put up a good fight against LFY, even managing to steal Game 1 and taking 50 minutes to tap out in a tightly contested Game 3, it didn’t matter in the grand scheme of things. Newbee and ViCi Gaming are currently in a class of their own, as LFY would attest to after losing to ViCi Gaming 2-0 in a one-sided series that lasted for less than an hour at the lower bracket finals.

Despite the loss, however, CompLexity Gaming and LFY can go home with their heads up high. They’ll both go home as 4th and 3rd place finishers with $18,000 and $30,000 pocketed in winnings respectively. Each one of their members will also receive 15 and 45 Qualifying Points for The International 8.

Perfect World Masters Grand Finals – Who Will Reign Supreme?

Trying to predict the outcome of the matchup between Newbee and ViCi Gaming is foolish. Only a few Dota 2 teams in the world are so evenly matched in terms of talent, experience and skill. However, story wise, you have to admit that the script couldn’t have been written any better; the best going up against their closest contenders in a high-stakes match is a tale as old as time.

With that said, all we can do now is wait to see who will reign supreme at the Perfect World Masters Grand Finals tomorrow.
