The Chongqing Major main event is a few hours away. After a week of group stage and playoffs matches held behind closed doors at the players’ hotel in Chongqing, the top eight teams are finally ready to make their appearance in front of their Chinese fans.
The main event will open with an elimination match featuring one of the home crowd favorites, Vici Gaming who got dropped to the lower bracket rounds by PSG.LGD Gaming. On the day off in Chongqing we had the chance to talk to VG’s captain Pan “Fade” Yi, who told us what was the biggest mistake that they did in their game two versus PSG.LGD Gaming, where he thinks they lost the game, but he was also kind to answer a few questions regarding the meta and VG’s drafts.
Vici Gaming vs Evil Geniuses will start the first day of the Chongqing Major main event. The best-of-three series will commence at 12:00 local time, 06:00 EET/20:00 PST. Moving forward, Fnatic will step on the big stage, also playing for their tournament life versus Team Liquid and their stand-in for this event, the TI6 winner, Chu “shadow” Zeyu. The final series of the day will decide the first grand finalist of the Chongqing Major. Team Secret will enter the booth hungry for revenge over Virtus.pro, who defeated them in the Kuala Lumpur Major grand finals.
