Topias “Topson” Taavitsainen recently qualified for The International 11’s (TI11) Last Chance Qualifier with T1.
Despite the pick up of ana and Topson, T1 barely missed out on a direct invitation to TI11 after losing to Polaris Esports in the TI11 SEA Regional Qualifiers.
In preparations for the upcoming LCQ, each player decided to practice by grinding ranked games during their boot camp. However, Topson decided to take it to the next level.
During a recent livestream from former Talon Esports coach Lee “Forev” Sang-don, he noticed that Topson has grinding ranked games non-stop, playing at least 30 games in a single day.
According to Dota 2 Pro Tracker, Topson has played a total of 31 games in a single day.
Despite the non-stop grind, Topson had a terrible day in his ranked games as he had a win-loss ratio of 12 wins to 19 losses, having only a meager 39% win rate during his grind.
Topson and T1 will begin their Last Chance Qualifier journey in group B, alongside Team Liquid, Xtreme Gaming, Virtus Pro, Wildcard Gaming and Infamous on the 9th October.
