Before that, Nigma lost the opportunity to go deeper at WePlay AniMajor when Evil Geniuses eliminated with a score of 2-0. This not only ends the WePlay journey, but also destroys the chances of getting an invite to TI10. This defeat cost Nigma the number of points needed to make it to the top 12 of TI10. Nigma will now have to fight OG, Team Liquid, Tundra and possibly dark horses like Vikin.gg, Brame for the final TI10 spot in Europe.
Meanwhile, Nigma’s defeat brought glory to another team. With Nigma not getting enough points, Thunder Predator became the 12th team to receive an invitation to TI10. This means South America will have up to FATHER team at The International this year.
But the real winner in DPC 2021 Season 2 is China. This area will have up to FIVE team competing at TI10.
