Veteran teams Newbee and Invictus Gaming have advanced into the Frankfurt Dota Major Chinese playoffs Upper Bracket finals. Newbee.Young will be fighting for their last chance to qualify for the Major, in the Lower Bracket finals. The last games will resume tomorrow, October 14th, at 04:00 CEST.
The day started with a tiebreaker between Newbee.Young and DK.Scuderia to determine which team would continue their journey in the next round of the qualifiers. Although three teams were originally tied for the first place in the group, IG moved forward into the playoffs automatically, since they had won the series against Team FanTuan (the next team below the three tied teams), while Neebee.Young and DK.S only had a draw.
Newbee.Young ended up winning the tiebreaker series, with an impressive display of skill.
As expected, both IG and Newbee were able to progress into the Upper Bracket finals, each having bested their opponents, 2:1.
Newbee.Young and Wings Gaming were left to fight in the Lower Brackets. Newbee.Y team swept through Wings, 2:0, and the latter were eliminated from the event.

Frankfurt Dota Major Chinese playoffs results, Upper Bracket semifinals
Invictus Gaming 2:1 Wings – In the first game, Wings Gaming had the lead starting in the laning phase through the early game. Starting about mid game, Invictus Gaming took control and seemed to be doing well, but the perfect game for Wings’ Wind Ranger and Luna would prove too much for them to handle.
Wings’ lineup in the second game was one that was supposed to have worked better and better after getting pick-offs, but since Invictus Gaming were playing pretty carefully around it, Wings were unable to reach any potential for growing. Wang “Rabbit” Zhang became unstoppable and the game was over in 31 minutes.
Luo “Ferrari_430” Feichi’s Ember Spirit was on fire in the third game. With three other heroes in IG’s lineup being the same as in the previous game, Wings found themselves in a similar situation. Anti-Mage attempted to split push, but IG were already in control and ended the game in just over 30 minutes.

Newbee 2:1 Newbee.Young – In the first game, the veteran Newbee team schooled the younger players around 28 minutes into the game, after a bad team fight. Once Newbee seized the lead, they had full control until the end.
Both teams were doing really well in the beginning of the game, however it would be the younger team that would come out on top this time around. Besides the two cores being farmed really well, the Beastmaster and Nightstalker were beautifully executed. The vision from those two heroes gave Newbee.Young the vision they needed to keep an eye on the veteran team and execute their strategy well. Sccc continued to impress once again, this time on Shadow Fiend.
Despite Newbee.Young having a slight advantage in the early game, Chen “Hao” Zhihao’s Gyrocopter, Dragon Knight and Lina’s gank attempts went well and the team was evenly farmed up, taking the veterans right to the victory and the Upper Bracket finals in just under 32 minutes.

Wings Gaming 0:2 Newbee.Young – The first game of the series was even. However, Tan “JiaJia” Lijia and Song “Sccc” Chun continued to extend their success to lead their team to victory, turning the game around in their favor during the last minutes.
The Chaos Knight-Io combo draft for Newbee.Young in the second game forced Wings Gaming to use alternate laning to deal with it, however unsuccessfully. On top of the dangerous combo, the gyrocopter became heavily farmed and made it easy for Newbee.Young to take the game.
- Frankfurt Dota Major Chinese playoffs results: Newbee.Young advance in the Lower Brackets to face the losing team of Invictus Gaming or Newbee for the last chance to attend the Frankfurt Dota Majors main event.
