A couple of days ago we went over some of the most exciting matchups in the TI11 Eastern Europe qualifiers, and today we’ll be doing the same but for the Chinese qualifiers. It has been a rough year for the Chinese candidates in DPC (2021-22) as multiple prominent powerhouses play in the International 11 China regional qualifiers.
Specifically, there are only two Chinese teams, which secured direct invites to TI11, namely PSG.LGD and Team Aster. This is a step down from past years when there are three or more Chinese direct invites
RNG VS Ybb Gaming
RNG is the closest on the list to ever secure a direct invite to TI11 and frankly lives up to their name. Many fans even proclaimed RNG as PSG.LGD in disguise since three remnants of the latter team are here. Notably, Lu “Somnus” Yao is RNG’s power-forward going into the International 11 China regional qualifiers.
Although RNG hasn’t been in their best form since the PGL Arlington Major, they are still a stronger opponent against Ybb Gaming. Ybb is among the newest teams to make their debut in Division 2 bracket, albeit didn’t have much success.

Vici Gaming VS Aster.Aries
VG is yet another powerhouse that has been rundown since the start of DPC. Featuring an entirely new roster, VG struggled to compete against prominent rivals, such as PSG.LGD, Team Aster, and even EHOME.
These days, VG is barely keeping up against the mediocre candidates in Division 1, and yet, they still couldn’t keep up against Aster.Aries. Since AA has a history of defeating VG in Division 1 last Tour, we could at least assume AA has something up their sleeves to overwhelm VG again.
For instance, AA’s team fight capabilities revolve around defensive skills and sustainability. This enables AA to turn the tides of a team fight after the opponent initiates.
Invictus Gaming VS Xtreme Gaming
Arguably the toughest match-up in the International 11 China regional qualifiers. IG was once hailed as runner-up in TI10 but fell down the DPC leaderboard. Regardless, IG is still a team with too many achievements to ever be considered an underdog.
They recently picked up the prodigy support player, Xu “fy” Linsen, so we can expect IG to be a relevant challenger to its opponent, Xtreme. Much like RNG, Xtreme also has multiple remnants of team VG, which once competed consistently in the International championship.
Xtreme also made up the four contestants to qualify for the majors, but withdrew from Arlington Major, likely because they knew they wouldn’t secure enough DPC points regardless. As such, they are probably stockpiling powerful strategies as we head into TI11 China Regional Qualifiers.With the tournament starting really soon, make sure to check out our Dota 2 betting site where you can find all the best sign up offers and free bets available.
