TI11 Last Chance Qualifiers predictions: Three teams to look out for

The International 2022: Last Chance Qualifiers (LCQ) will begin on October 8, 2022, with twelve teams eyeing the two remaining spots for The International 2022 (TI11).

While all the teams will give their best, three teams stand out the most and are more likely to secure the two remaining spots.

Let’s get ready for the bold TI11 Last Chance Qualifiers predictions.

The Southeast Asian behemoth is not an org to be taken lightly, given the amount of talent and experience it boasts.

T1 made critical changes before The International 2022 SEA Regional Qualifiers by roping the two-time TI winners Ana and Topson.

The change instantly made them the favourites during the TI11 SEA qualifiers. However, they couldn’t secure T1 a direct spot for the crown jewel Dota 2 event.

Heading into the Last Chance Qualifiers, they are one of the strongest teams and be considered for the last two remaining TI11 spots, and that’s not only because of Ana or Topson.

Long before the duo joined, T1’s core — Xepher, Whitemon and Kuku, have been the impeccable pillars of the team.

Xtreme Gaming has been a pleasant surprise to emerge from China.

The way they secured a spot for the PGL Arlington Major by decisively dominating the other Chinese teams was a marvellous.

But as fate would have it, Xtreme Gaming couldn’t make the trip to the United States of America owing to visa issues arising due to Covid-19.

They forfeited their slot for the Major, thus missing out on much required international exposure in a LAN setting, and started preparing for the TI11 China qualifiers.

However, they couldn’t go past the final hurdle and had to live to fight another day.

Xtreme Gaming has a high chance of grabbing one of the two remaining spots for TI11 through the Last Chance qualifiers.

Team Secret

Team Secret looks good, especially after adding Resolution to their roster.

The only reason they make it to the list is that they are placed in an easier group stage. The ideal choice to replace them would be Team Liquid, but considering they are placed in Group B a.k.a. the group of death, the odds are better for Team Secret.

Nonetheless, Team Secret fell short of qualifying for TI11 through the WEU Regional Qualifiers after being obliterated by Entity in the grand finals.

Heading into the Last Chance Qualifiers, Team Secret’s chances of survival and securing one of the two remaining TI11 spots are more than the others.
