iG vs Piggy Killer Preview and Predictions: Dota 2 China DPC 2023 Tour 3 Division 1

A tense mid-table battle between two apparently evenly-matched teams awaits us with iG vs Piggy Killer in the 2023 China DPC Tour 3


While top of the table clashes can be fascinating in terms of results, mid-table clashes can often bring out the best of some underrated players. As iG face off against the bizarrely-named Piggy Killer, one team will gain some purchase on staying in Division 1 of the Chinese Dota Pro Circuit and perhaps even begin to aim for a Major slot, while the other stays in a risky zone with everything uncertain. Here’s our preview to give you insight into the matchup.

iG

It’s hard to recognize this iG as the same one that won the ONE Esports Singapore Major with a reverse sweep in the Grand Finals. Only remnants of that lineup and its former glory remains, and they’re off to an average start in the DPC with a win against Bright matched by a loss to PSG.LGD. Game 1 of the latter was a straightforward slow burn loss, while Game 2 saw a roller coaster before iG finally succumbed.

Piggy Killer

Unlike iG, Piggy Killer is a relatively new squad, but they have highly experienced players including a former iG veteran. Their campaign began with two losses and a win, with the last one being a 2-0 thumping from Aster. Game 1 was pretty even before Aster ran away with it, while Game 2 was absolute domination.
