Empire vs RoX.KiS

1st game

 

Итоги первого дня второго группового этапа

 

Empire decided to make their game based on AoF spells in team fights. For this purpose Elder Titan, Puck, Crystal Maiden were chosen. All this abundance of damage had to be reinforced by the good tracks of Bounty Hunter. And if someone survived after this, then Troll finished off the wounded enemies. In contrast, RoX.KIS tried to build their game on attempts to pull out heroes one by one. And to guaranty a riot of AoE spells, the team chose Chen. Rubick was responsible for stealing good ultimates, and Batrider with Windrunner had to catch and deliver key heroes to Lifestealer, who was the main striking force of Empire. The beginning of the game remained after RoX.KIS: first blood was shed, the Radiant started to increase their advantage. Before the first somehow significant battle the preponderance of RoX reached 2500 gold. Then Empire had an unsuccessful visit to the enemy's forest, and the score from 4:4 becomes 8:5. Further, RoX.KIS didn’t lose their advantage right to the end. Score is 1:0, and RoX.KIS goes forward.


2nd game

The beginning of the game remained after Empire: their aggressive triple-line leaded by Weaver created significant hindrances to a triple headed by Lifestealer, also Scandal won mid in fight with Solo. The advantage was on the side of RoX.KIS on the bot, where Troll killed Mag, but as soon as Bounty Hunter got the 6th level, Empire immediately began to impose their rules on the map. On the 7th minute the score was 8:1! Further, the destruction was even increased. On the 14th minute (with the score 15:3) RoX.KIS wrote GG. Empire did a great revenge, and we were ready for the third map.


3rd game

 

Итоги первого дня второго группового этапа

 

This time teams had more balanced approach to the game. Empire used an aggressive triple-line again, but it had not much success: the beginning of the game didn’t give any decisive advantage to any of the teams, and the gold indicator fluctuated around 1500 in favor of Empire. Until that time, both teams showed the bright game with mutual exchanges without anyone's decisive advantage. Also we should definitely mention the non-stop battle when, starting from the 14th minute, the teams were killing each other! 23 kills during 4 minutes! The turning point of the game came on the 20th minute, when Empire did a great fight and with impunity sent 4 heroes of RoX.KIS to the tavern. After that RoX.KIS started to lose their position even more: the next five-minute period ended with the score 1:7 in favor of Empire, and the advantage of Empire in already farmed gold was more than 10,000. It was more than enough to complete the game methodically. On the 35th minute (with the score 24:42) Sedoy typed GG. The total score is 2:1 - the final victory of Empire, and today they can guarantee a place in WePlay League Season 2 play-off!

 

Alliance vs Speed Gaming

 

1st game


Итоги первого дня второго группового этапа

 

We supposed Swedish team to be the favorites in this game, but no one expected such a turn of events. The first game started rather calmly, there were some interesting moments, but the 6th minute has already passed and the first blood still had not been shed, everyone was simply farming. On the 7th minute the first tower of Alliance is falling and it brings additional money to Speed Gaming’s treasury. One more minute and the first blood is shed by AdmiralBulldog who killed SingSing. The 11th minute and the first team fight, where Speed Gaming got 1 kill, so the score is 1:1 now. After less than 1 minute the second Swedish tower falls. On the 15th minute Alliance loses their third tower and the team fight, the score is 2:4. Speed Gaming is slowly but surely going to succeed. Now the European team is ahead of their opponents for 5,000 points of experience and 2,000 of gold. Speed Gaming (having three players) kills Roshan and takes Aegis. The new fight ended badly for Alliance, and the score becomes 2:7. On the 27th minute Europeans started to do something incredible, the difference in experience and gold is simply unbelievable, and the score is shattering – 3:10. No one can understand why Alliance shows such a game. Further, Speed Gaming were just capturing their opponents throughout the map and earning kills. After the 30th minute Europeans won the team fight and destroyed towers and barracks on Alliance’s base, so it’s GG. The first victory is Speed Gaming’s.

 

2nd game

Quite unusual pick has Speed Gaming, and it gives the results: the first blood is shed by the European team. On the 6th minute s4 along with EGM go to the tavern, but they managed to kill pieliedie before, the score is 2:3. Further, teams are capturing each other on the map, and after the 18th minute the score becomes 8:9. The first Roshan falls and Swedes take Aegis. But AdmiralBulldog is caught on the top without any chances to escape. The first serious fight on the 25th minute and the score becomes 14:12 in favor of Europeans. Alliance starts to push the bot, destroys all the towers, only the barracks are left. Swedish team is trying to get the second Roshan, but suddenly Speed Gaming is rushing in. They win the fight and in addition steal Aegis. The score is 22:17 in their favor. A new attempt of Alliance to push the bot costs them 4 deaths. 26:19 – Europeans show the great game. The difference in gold and experience is more than 10,000. Swedish team easily takes the third Roshan. Alliance makes a new push on the top, they destroy two towers, but lose 3 players. The 50th minute: a fight near the Speed Gaming’s base, 3 kills are made by European team, and the score is 35:24, but a counterattack begins immediately. After less than 2 minutes Alliance types GG. Speed Gaming gets a whitewash victory over the world champions.
