Gaimin Gladiators dominated rivals 9Pandas in just 15 minutes, making it the fastest game of Bali Major group stage thus far.

Gaimin Gladiators have been an unstoppable force and it does not look like they are about to stop any time soon. In their Bali Major opening series on June 29, Gaimin Gladiators squared off with rivals 9Pandas. The Quinn versus Ramzes storyline continues, but this time it ended up in favor of Gaimin with a 2-0 win. The second game was so one-sided that it can be considered as SUNSfan's classic shellacking.

Gaimin Gladiators schooled the dreaded kiyotaka Tinker

Gaimin Gladiators completely outclassed 9Pandas. In the first game, they managed to end it within 25 minutes with a final score of 19-4. Then, things got worse for 9Pandas after Gaimin once again destroyed them at the second game at a much faster pace. The game went for 15 minutes with a 22-3 score, making this one of the fastest Major group stage matches.

This series was certainly not a good look for 9Pandas, especially after the second game. Not only was it the quickest defeat at the Bali Major opening day, this loss also happened on Gleb "kiyotaka" Zyryanov's Tinker. Anyone who has been following 9Pandas' games know how dreadful kiyotaka's Tinker is. Unfortunately, that was just not the case this time. The Tinker went to accumulate a 0-8 KDA with a net worth even lower than that of Gaimin Gladiator supports.

Can anyone stop the gladiators?

At this time, it does not seem that there is a single team that can hold a candle to Gaimin Gladiators. The only team who ever came close was BetBoom Team when they managed to push to a game five at the DreamLeague Season 20 grand finals. Even so, they still could not put an end to Gaimin's win streak. Now, with this dominant opening series at Bali Major, Gaimin looks to widen the gap even more. What does it take to stop them? Who can figure out their weakness? Will they bag yet another Major win?
