The Ninjas in Pyjamas and Virtus Pro will face each other in the lower bracket of the OGA Dota PIT Online: EU tournament.The OGA DotaPIT is a $150,000 online tournament featuring the best Dota 2 teams in action. It has two sections - Europe/CIS and China. There are two groups of five teams each. The group stage features a round-robin best of three format. Eight of the ten teams will advance to the playoffs, with the last team in each facing elimination from the tournament.
NiP picked up the former Chicken Fighters roster after repeated failures on part of their Dota 2 roster. The Chicken Fighters team has consistently shown us why they are one of the most feared teams in the early game. They have a focus on their early game (laning stage) which gives them a huge advantage over their opponents. While this focus on the early game migt give them a big advantage, their upcoming match is against Virtus pro.
Several VP players thrive on the early game action and are always willing to take up the challenge. VP had a relatively easy match against Vikin.gg and won the series in two straight games.
The two teams have already met each other once in the group stage. NiP won the series 2-0 after Virtus Pro did not play up to expectations. With the VP team looking extremely strong and dominant in their 2-0 victory over Vikin.gg, Dota 2 fans can expect a much closer series this time around.
