BO3 - 19 Jun - 12:00
Alliance and Vikin.gg will face each other in the first matches of the ESL One Summer 2021. The tournament has twelve teams and runs for five days from June 16 to June 20. With over 12 teams competing for a $400,000 prize pool, Dota 2 fans can expect some exciting games and Dota 2 meta at this tournament.
Alliance is back to its online form. The team has been one of the most consistent teams, but only online. In fact, the team falters hard on LAN. The team bombed out of the Singapore Major as well as the WePlay Animajor. In fact, Alliance lost 0-2 in the Weplay Animajor, failing to win a single series. However, now that we are back on LAN, the team looks extremely strong with well-thought-out strategies and playstyle. They will go up against Vikin.gg. Vikin.gg looks good but with the lack of international experience, this series should go the way of Alliance. However, there is a decent chance that the series will go a distance of over 2.5 maps.
