Some had doubts about which would be the semifinals of MSI after the fall of G2 Esports to third place. Although Invictus Gaming could select them as rivals for semis, it finally leaves us a cross between G2 Esports and SK Telecom T1 after electing Team Liquid.
The best-of-five series will be very different from the group stage
The group stage for G2 Esports has been a roller coaster of emotions. They started very strong by beating SKT T1 at the premiere of MSI ( Mid-Season Invitational ). Moreover, they also subdued the Koreans in the second match and crushed Flash Wolves.
However, lost the reins in games where they were favorites like against Phong Vũ Buffalo . The Europeans succumbed to the Vietnamese on two occasions. And these were not his only defeats. They saw their nexus destroyed in the two maps against Invictus Gaming -although they almost won the second- and, with the certified classification, they were let go before Team Liquid being relegated from second place to third
For its part, SKT has won everything except a map against Invictus Gaming and the two against G2 Esports . Koreans are seen more secure in the game, less emotional. Something that weighed much to the Europeans in their second map against Invictus Gaming, the lack of temper.
