Two-time TI champion Topias "Topson" Taavitsainen shared his predictions for the final TI11 games in which Secret, Tundra, Liquid, and Aster will compete.
According to Topson, the games will be quite competitive. He feels that Tundra shall beat Secret in the upper bracket final, whereas Aster shall take down Liquid in the lower bracket elimination series.
The final two days of TI11 take place at the Singapore Indoor Stadium on 29th and 30th Oct.

The excitement builds as The International 11 (TI11) progresses to the final two days, when the final four teams - Team Secret, Tundra Esports, Team Aster, and Team Liquid will battle it out for the historic title. In a recent Twitch livestream, former two-time TI champion Topias "Topson" Taavitsainen shared his predictions for the final games on the last two days of TI11 when these four teams will compete. According to Topson, Tundra is the favorite in the upper bracket final against Secret, and Liquid and Aster will compete fiercely, the latter shall win the lower bracket elimination series.

Topson feels Secret and Tundra will be the two grand finalists at TI11

Twitch livestream viewers asked Topson about his predictions for the top four - Secret, Tundra, Aster, and Liquid - and he said the games would be very close among these teams.

According to Topson, Tundra shall beat Secret 2-1 in the upper bracket final, but he is uncertain how Aster will fare against Liquid since he has not seen the Chinese team’s games in TI11.

“I would guess Tundra beats Secret. That is how I feel like. It’s going to be really close, 2-1. Aster vs Liquid, to be honest, I have not watched a single Aster game so I don’t know anything about this team. I don’t know. It’s going to be really close. I don’t know.”

If Aster loses, all three final teams will be European, so Topson suggested that Aster might win with a 60:40 ratio against Liquid and meet Secret in the lower bracket final. As Topson pointed out, the grand final could be a rematch of the upper bracket final as Secret and Tundra would face each other in a Bo5 contest for the coveted TI11 title.

“But it’s going to be weird if the top three - all of them are European teams. So, part of me feels like Aster will win this one but at the same time, Liquid has been winning all their games except they were very close with Thunder. I don’t know. I think Aster may be 60:40. This one - Secret vs Tundra - 70:30 for Tundra. And this could be the finals also - Secret vs Tundra. That’s my prediction.”

The final two days of TI11 take place at the Singapore Indoor Stadium on 29th and 30th Oct. There is a total prize pool of over $17 Million USD, and the winner takes home 45% of the total.
