It is time for DotA 2 viewers to keep their eyes on Galaxy Battles. It is a brand new tournament organized by NEOTV, Purpose Win, Syber, and Fallout Gaming. Eight teams from different regions will compete for a prize pool of $150,000. Round robin group stage matches will be played from the 14th-15th of June, 2017, and double-elimination playoffs will be held at the Shenzhen Bay Sports Center Stadium in Shenzhen, China, between the 16th and 18th of June.
Newbee, iG Vitality, TNC Pro Team, and Thunderbirds were the four teams to be directly invited to the tournament, while LGD Gaming and HappyFeet have secured their spots from the respective Galaxy Battles regional qualifiers.
Right now, the teams are competing to secure one slot for the Europe qualifier and one for the North American region.
We will be giving predictions on the European Galaxy Battles qualifier matches where Vega Squadron will be facing Team Empire, and Prodota Gaming will be testing their luck against Elements Pro Gaming.
Vega Squadron will be facing Team Empire in the best-of-one match. Recently the two teams faced each other in the LOOT Invitational best-of-three series where Team Empire came ahead of Vega Squadron with a score of 2-1. Both the teams showed brilliant effort but at the end, it was Team Empire that was able to utilize their team strength for the victory.
After the best-of-three series, the two teams once again came head to head with each other in the best-of-five series of the same tournament. The result was the same though. Team Empire won the series with a 3-2 score but it was close a call since both the teams put a lot of effort into the game.
Talking about the Vega Squadron’s gameplay, they seem to be more fight oriented. They have the mid-laner which tries to farm up as soon as he can. Then, there is the carry who tries to farm up quickly with the space creation factor provided by the supports.
Now the thing is that every team makes those moves to secure the farm on the cores. What makes Vega Squadron unique in this scenario is that often times, if the help from their carry is needed in the early stages of the game, then he is ready to leave his lane to join team fight. The aim of the Vega Squadron is very strong. They want to secure early as well as late in the game if something goes wrong or not according to the plan.
Team Empire is a team that is known for quickly reading the opponents. They went through a lot of changes in the recent year and until the end of the last month, they were not winning anything major. However, with their roster stabilized, they are now back into the competitive scene. They gave a tough time to top tier teams like NaVi, Team Secret, Virtus.Pro, etc. They are seeking to grab major titles in their favor and that’s why they are giving their best.
By reading the opponents, I mean that they can quickly learn the moves that the enemy team is going to make in the game with their draft. They always prioritize counter-drafting instead of their wombo combo. That is the reason why they won against Vega Squadron twice in a row.
Team Empire has learned a lot of moves that Vega Squadron made during these two series. They will be fully prepared to face them in the future. However, this is a best-of-one series and anything can happen in it. So, my final prediction will be with Team Empire but remember to bet a low amount on them.
Team Empire will also be the one to get F10 kills in this Galaxy Battles qualifier match.
Right after the game of Vega Squadron and Team Empire, Prodota Gaming will be facing Elements Pro Gaming in the best-of-one match. The outcome of this match is pretty obvious from the recent performances. We predict that Prodota Gaming will easily dominate Elements Pro Gaming.
In the last 10 series, Elements Pro Gaming has only one win, which shows that the team is pretty weak in this meta. On the other side, Prodota Gaming has recently won against Alliance and mousesports, which shows that they are ready for a fight against Elements Pro Gaming.
The whole roster of Elements Pro Gaming is unstable right now. They have a major void in their team coordination and to fill up that gap, they need some time to practice with the whole roster.
Prodota Gaming, with their excellent early game performances, will be able to grab F10 kills.
