It’s a funny thing to witness something like this, especially now when we’re before The International 2018. The Dota 2 highly awarding and most famous tournament in a year is yet to begin. Now that we’re getting closer to its begin date, there’s something vital to notice regarding the European leaderboards.
With that being said, 4 out of 5 Liquid players have managed to top the European leaderboards. Does this announce the outcome of this year’s International? We do not know, but this phenomenon surely proves something.
The list concludes of Matumbaman, Miracle-, Gh, and MinD_ContRoL. The fifth player of Liquid, their Captain Kuroky is on the 660 position of the list, which proves us that he’s more of an analyzer during this period, and because of that matter, he is most likely a passive player as his job of an in-game Leader is the most vital for their performance at TI 2018.
The second spot on the European Leaderboards belongs to @Believe, which presumably is Virtus Pro Noone’s smurf account.
Just as a reminder, Liquid was the winner of The International 2017, beating Newbee with a fashionable 3-0 in the finals. At that time, the win put them as the most current and up-to-date team knowing all of the current Metas. With that being said, does this mean that The International 2018 belongs to the already defending champion Liquid? It remains to be seen, and August 20 will blow the whistle for startup of the most popular Dota 2 tournament.
