I am finally caught up on vods and here is a slice of my expert analysis:

- Tims is the player of the tournament even if TNC goes out tonight. I favor them for sure over Liquid but who knows.
- VP play like they have no confidence. They lose a fight midgame and just crumble, sort of like what NiP did all during the group stage
- I think Infamous is top 8, especially if they get Newbee in losers (I don't know who gets who)
- LGD is probably the best looking team
- I hope Alliance stays together as five
- Fnatic had maybe the weirdest draft in Bo1 I can remember. I get that Enigma was really a carry but Ice played the Timber like a one.
- Liquid still doesn't look that good. Maybe they figure it out but it feels like they got pretty lucky with that matchup

Thanks for reading. Does anyone have a link to the after show thing because it isn't on the Dota 2 YT page

Liquid got rid of their best player, it's no surprise they aren't doing great.

I'm excited for Newbee and EG to win today and secure a top 3 spot for NA.

Going for TNC and Secret for fantasy today (also Topson but only because I have a decent card for him and I'm confident OG will win). I'm a TNC believer after yesterday's games and Secret still look unstoppable.

Broadcast starts at 7PM Pacific/10PM Eastern, so the OG/Newbee draft should start 30-45 minutes after that

OG vs Newbee first then EG vs Secret

After that we got losers bracket with RNG vs VP and the grudge match between liquid and TNC. Grudge match because Heen is TNCís coach this year.

Hotter than Garrison Keillor, but just a little bit.

I wonder how long Newbee would have to stick together with the same sponsors before it stopped feeling weird that Newbee isn't a China team.

I'm trying to remember how long it took for it to stop being weird that Fnatic was SEA instead of EU
