    I'm betting for Na'Vi over Alliance. I'm afraid chinese teams will be outplayed by these two teams.

    Alliance, maybe a chinese team. Na'Vi just looked horrible throughout the many tournaments that took place before TI3.

    They were winning some. Other teams have performed much better overall and Na'Vi were very sloppy in many games. I can't recall which ones but I rooted for Na'Vi initially but was very disappointed and Alliance caught my eye.

    I can't remember them losing on a series tho, since they lost vs LGD (tactical pause issue) on Alliance cup. Most of the series went 2 or 3-0 vs TI3 teams such as Mouz, VP, Fnatic. Some of the tournaments were joined by Alliance, too.

    Teams you mentioned are a league lower than Na'Vi. I understand they are good but they are not on the same level as Na'Vi.

    Orange, Alliance, iG, maybe TongFu and LGD.cn. Those are the teams you should be comparing Na'Vi to. These teams are more consistent in their games compared to other games.
    Take Quantic Gaming for example. I can't remember which tournament (there have been so many of them in such a short time span, maybe Dreamhack?) but they were absolutely dominating pretty much everyone. After, that they just lost almost every single game and had a very poor performance.

    Liquid, Fnatic, Mouse etc. are inconsistent whereas Alliance, Na'Vi, iG, Orange, LGD.cn are much more consistent and there are no "bad" or "good" days that would affect their performance.

    Na'Vi has overall been worse than they usually are so I highly doubt they will win TI3.

    Asian/Chinese teams had been dominated by Na'Vi in the Alliance Cup and it happen just weeks before TI3. I just feel they are in the perfect shape right now comparing the results they are having months before July :3

    So I finally started playing again and picked up Abaddon as a guy to try out. He's not a bad support early on, and his abilities let him carry really well.

    Yeah, Abaddon is great as he can fill many roles. He can't hard carry but he makes quite a strong semi-carry.

    Just like The International Bracket rules, all teams are included in the playoffs (loser bracket) but in that particular tournament, only the 2 leaders in each group has the advantage.

    but his power isn't only about his ulti, using his heal and OP aphotic shield he makes a good support on counter-ganks and ofcourse tower diving. I remember the Necro-Abaddon back the old dota1 days. so stronk..

    Na'Vi got surprised by Fnatic. I remember Na'Vi doing not so good on preliminaries during TI1 and TI2. I hope they continue their momentum now

    Damn Alliance is rolling, mouz is afflicted with Synderen's curse.

    And after a 7 loss streak I'm on a 7 win streak, almost scared to queue and ruin it. Forgot how fun beastmaster is.
    EDIT: Aaand I lost, playing offlane mirana vs a tiny/ogre/disruptor lane not dying while timbersaw had 7 kills vs a io/ck lane :/
