The representatives of the CIS region Gambit Esports and European Dota 2 adherents Ninjas in Pyjamas came together in the battle for reaching the WePlay! Dota 2 Valentine Madness Winners’ final. Yes, it’s still interesting to watch the Peter "ppd" Dager performances. Almost the same as reading his Twitter.
Ninjas in Pyjamas revealed the draft basis picking Lifestealer in the early stage of character selection. The team also mobilised Bristleback, Nightstalker, Batrider and Lich. Gambit Esports responded with the cores - Morphling and Visage and created a support duet from Dazzle and Beastmaster.
The European team had a great initial stage of the game and began to implement the advantage methodically. Gambit Esports were left without first-line fortifications by the 10th minute. The map control opened up NiP unhindered access to Roshan. A team from the CIS was forced to keep the defence. Due to fng, his team was able to last for 10 minutes with a deficit of 20 thousand gold. However, NiP made megacreeps to the late game and forced the enemy to surrender.
Ninjas in Pyjamas played a strategy with Anti-Mage and Shadow Demon, adding Bristleback, Lich and Nature’s Prophet to the squad. Gambit Esports repeated the Visage pick, building a draft of dense Doom, Tiny, Undying and Dragon Knight.
Ninjas took control of the map again: Bristleback and Lich had a great early game, and Nature’s Prophet effectively connected to local fights. Gambit Esports fell behind in the score and net worth. The decisive battle took place on the 34th minute when the teams fight against each other in Roshpit. Three Gambit heroes spent their buybacks during the full-scale confrontation, and two heroes immediately died. NiP took Aegis and went to the base of the opponent, simultaneously destroying the towers and barracks.
Ppd and teammates again went on the attack, having regrouped, and easily crushed Gambit Esports, because the CIS team characters didn’t have the opportunity to return to the game quickly.
Ninjas in Pajamas were the first to reach the final of the WePlay! Dota 2 Valentine Madness Winners’ bracket and now will compete with the winner from the Natus Vincere vs Alliance pair. Gambit Esports will continue their performance in the Losers’ bracket. Their opponent will be determined in the next matches.
