Team Liquid will face Evil Geniuses for the EPICENTER 2017 Championship title
It’s a western showdown at Moscow later today for EPICENTER 2017.
Former teammates will collide later today at EPICENTER Moscow 2017 as western powerhouses, Team Liquid and Evil Geniuses face each other at the Best of 5 finals for this year’s championship title.
Both coming off with a 2-0 win in their respective semi-finals matches, EG against Secret and Liquid against LGD.FY, the EPICENTER 2017 finals will be a battle of 2 different Dota 2 disciplines – Liquid‘s flashy aggression, most especially coming from their midlaner Miracle- versus EG‘s cohesive approach combined with their own flashy showmanship from the prodigy Suma1L.
Cr1t: “I wanna play against Miracle-“
Apart from a battle of different disciplines, the EPICENTER 2017 finals match between EG and Liquid will also be a battle between former teammates, particularly between EG‘s captain Cr1t and Liquid‘s midlaner Miracle- who were both teammates back during their stint with OG Dota 2 wherein they were able to secure 2 Dota 2 Major championships, Frankfurt and Manila before breaking up post-TI6. This is also the first time that both players and teams get to face each other on the finals stage of a major LAN so we are expecting a lot of cerebral plays and even perhaps a full 5-game finals for the EPICENTER 2017 title.
Both Evil Geniuses and Team Liquid have been directly invited to EPICENTER Moscow 2017, EG has had a flawless group stage run which had them automatically seeded to the Semi-finals from which they then beat Team Secret to clinch the first Grand Finals spot, Team Liquid, on the other hand, finished third in the group stage battles, securing them a quarterfinals slot where they had to beat teams Virtus.pro and LGD.Forever Young for a chance to face EG in the EPICENTER Moscow 2017 Best-of-5 grand finals happening later at 8:00 PM PHT.
