TI9 Group Stage Nitro Game Thread

TI9 odds found here

Vici Gaming and Team Secret are the favorites to win The International 9 and both teams proved that they are the team to beat as they are currently undefeated during the Group Stages.

Team Secret had a rough start in their first game of the tournament after fending off mega creeps triggered by Alliance, but as the saying goes, you can never count out Puppey’s leadership and drafts as not only did they pull off the crazy comeback in game 1 but took game 2 clinching the series. Secret ended Day 1 with a win over rival, Team Liquid.

On Group B, Vici Gaming is at the top after wins against co-region Royal Never Give Up, Fnatic, and kicked off Day 2 with a win over in the first series of the day.
