WEU drama, China and SA deciders, NA clash and more

Finally, in the introductions to this section, we can say that the teams after the Dota Pro Circuit leagues will travel to our Major! Or rather, AniMajor! If you for some reason missed the announcement, here it is. Well, it's the final week for the regional leagues, which means the intensity is at the maximum and there's going to be a bunch of decisive matches. Let's figure out what to watch this week! 

Invictus Gaming (3-3) — EHOME (3-3)

When: May 18, 09:00 CET

In China, the league's conclusion is totally unpredictable: the final position of the teams in the standings will be decided only after the final match because the competition was tight two weeks ago and has remained until now. And while the match between Aster and Elephant is unlikely to become very interesting (Aster has no real motivation, Elephants are... just Elephants), the match between iG and EHOME is a match for both respect and a tiebreaker. The battle of the season.

Fnatic (4-2) — TNC Predator (4-2)

When: May 19, 12:00 CET

And while the second-placed T1 has a match against a not very strong opponent, the other two teams from the top-3 will converge and one of them will obviously have casualties. Roughly speaking, the winner goes to the Major.

Team Liquid (4-2) — OG (3-3)

When: May 19, 18:00 CET

While Alliance broke away from everyone and successfully completed the league, everything is climaxing in the fight for second place and the Wildcard. In another match, Team Secret will try to break into fourth place, but we are watching this particular clash because Liquids can fall in fourth place if they lose, and OG, in turn, may not get into the wildcard. 

Quincy Crew (6-0) — Undying (5-1)

When: May 20, 00:00 CET

Here it is, the North America Decider. Quincy Crew confidently beat EG (in a buggy style), took the first line, and are now playing with another strong team in the region, a contender for a ticket to the Major. QC can finish the league very nicely with a score of 7-0, but Undying will be as motivated to win as possible, unlike the opponent. Let's watch!

Beastcoast (5-1) — NoPing Esports (6-0)

When: May 21, 21:00 CET

It happened so that both teams have already secured access to the Major. NoPing placed first, Beastcoast are second, and ThunderPredator have already played their seventh match—left behind, third line. There's going to be a brutal, savage battle between them.

BONUS: CIS Drama

There is a rather interesting situation in the CIS (EEU) region: NAVI, Gambit and Team Unique have the same number of points (3-3). NAVI meet with PuckChamp, while Gambit and Unique play in the last round with each other. As a result, we can witness tiebreakers for Wildcard places, so if you have nothing to do on Sunday (ASM.GMB – Team Unique 15:00 CET; NAVI – PuckChamp 18:00 CET), you can watch Eastern Europe Region and have fun.
