PSG.LGD are on a 10-0 winning streak since Yang “Chalice”‘ Shenyi moved to the carry position and Ren “eLeVeN” Yangwei joined the team in the offlane.
After claiming the WeSave! China bracket victory against Invictus Gaming 2-0 in the semifinals and Vici Gaming 3-0 in the finals, the team, once regarded as the best in the Chinese region, is now on the right path to a full recovery.
Back in October 2019, PSG.LGD along with nine other Chinese teams entered the China Dota2 Professional League Season 1 battle. The online league had weekly games scheduled each month since it started, currently running its 7th week of matches. Four teams got eliminated along the way, in the group stage.
PSG.LGD and Vici Gaming finished top two in the group, with an overall score of 15-4, but while VG are now in the lower bracket playoffs after losing to iG, the TI8 grand finalists have secured a top finish.
March 27 brought two best-of-three series for PSG.LGD. The day started with a convincing victory over RNG, who had to admit defeat in game one in front of a Huskar-Oracle duo, while in game two they got bested by a Storm Spirit-Lifestealer infest bomb and powerful team fight tools provided by Silencer, Mars and Nyx Assassin.
Headed into the CDL finals, where iG was waiting, PSG.LGD put Chalice on Phantom Lancer and let Lu “Maybe” Yao give Earth Spirit another try in the mid lane, after testing it first a couple of days back, in the WeSave! Charity Play grand finals.
Maybe didn’t have the easiest laning stage of them all and ended up giving six kills to iG in the first 12 minutes of the game. However, despite the strong start from iG, Chalice managed to dodge any deaths and kept his farm going up until he took full control of the game. He finished 11-0-10 on PL, securing the victory point for PSG.LGD. Game two was a total stomp as Chalice took Nature’s Prophet in the safe lane and itemized for early building damage, with a Desolator completed around the 12-minute mark.
China Dota2 Professional League Season 1 will resume Saturday, March 28 with the lower bracket series starting at 05:00 CET. The league will wrap up Sunday with the lower bracket finals and the grand finals, where PSG.LGD will fight for the supremacy in their region once again.
