KuroKy will miss the second The International in a row, and Puppey is one step closer to an absolute record.
The International 2022: Western Europe Qualifier matches continue today. In the fight for 3 places in the main tournament of the year, until now there were 6 teams left.
In the third round of the lower bracket for life, Nigma and Team Secret played in the qualifiers. The winner of the meeting was Team Secret.
The duel is important not just for the presence of the names of high-profile clubs on the signboard. There is a deep storyline behind the match, which will make the fight one of the most dramatic series in the history of Dota 2.
On the one hand played KuroKy, who attended The International series tournaments. On the other hand, Puppey is an absolute veteran of Dota 2 and a player who has visited all The Internationals up to this point.
Puppey and Secret's victory made it impossible for KuroKy to try to catch up with his old friend and teammate in terms of the number of TIs won. In addition, the TI7 champion will miss the main event of the year for the second time in a row.
Ahead of Secret is a long road to the coveted place at least in the Wildcard tournament. Nigma leave the qualifiers for TOP-6 empty-handed.
