The International 3 - Eastern Qualifiers - Day 4
4 days have passed since the start of The Eastern Qualifiers for The International 3. As mayhem erupts in Group B, 3 teams are left and only one will be able to proceed to the Playoffs.
As 2 teams from South-East Asia remain, MiTH.Trust and Mineski have to face each other to decide who gets to go up against the Far East Asians, Rising Stars. In a surprising turn of events, MiTH.Trust made a huge comeback in Game 1 and stomped through Game 2 as they knockout Mineski from the qualifiers.
Then comes the deciding match, MiTH.Trust VS Rising Stars. Game 1 started in Rising Stars' favour as they had a convising lead in the early game. But then, came LaKelz. Pulling out an surprisingly quick Orchid Staff, LaKelz took the whole map by storm. That is not the end of it as he opt for an unconventional Blink Dagger on his Clinkz, making him unstoppable and ending the game with a 10-0 score on the board wninning Game 1 for MiTH.Trust.

Then, comes Game 2. Although the scores were far apart, LaKelz was doing an exceptional job carrying MiTH.Trust with his Anti-Mage. Unfortunately, xiaotuji out-played the rival with his Juggernaught winning Game 2 for Rising Stars drawing up the score to 1-1.
Things get really tense for Game 3 and what a game it was. Living up to the stereotype, Rising Stars does their country proud as they fill up the brackets making it an All-Chinese Playoffs. xiaotuji's Alchemist was too strong for MiTH.Trust to handle.
With all things being said and done, let's look at the brackets for the Playoffs:
