J.Storm are surprising and delighting Dota 2 fans with their impressive run at DreamLeague Season 11 ahead of their crunch clash with Team Secret.
Little was expected of J.Storm before the Stockholm Major and hopes were even slimmer after they ended the group stage without winning a round but the NA org have surged into the final eight via the lower-bracket and face highly-fancied Team Secret in round three on Wednesday.
Many fans expected DreamLeague Season 11 to be comfortable for Team Secret, but Puppey's in-form Europeans find themselves in the lower bracket after defeat by Vici Gaming in upper bracket round one.
J.Storm finished bottom of Group A, which was topped by Secret, but have breezed through the lower bracket beating Na'Vi 1-0 and Mineski 2-0 to set up the meeting with Secret. The winners will face the winners of Keen Gaming vs Fnatic in lower bracket round four.
'Their best Dota since TI6'
And the J.Storm roster of Moo, Bryle, FoREv, Fear and March have won plenty of admirers along the way.
