Alliance vs Liquid


Game 1

 

Итоги первого дня плей-офф


Pick of Alliance in the first game was not very unexpected. Invoker, who received some improvements in the last patch, were chosen for mid, but as for the rest all the players used their usual heroes. Liquid decided to take a bunch of supports not so much used in tournament games: Tidehunter and Shadow Demon had to create all the conditions for Luna to have a good farm. Despite the fact that by the 12th minute the score was 4:1 in favor of Liquid, a slight advantage by farm was on the side of Alliance. Between some interesting activities we can mention a fight on the 19th minute. With the help of successful team actions Swedes managed to equalize the score (it was 5:3 before), and to get advantage in farming by 5000. We had to wait 7 minutes to see further active actions, in series of exchanges nobody came out as a winner – the score by kills was not qualitatively changed, as well as farming graphics. But everything changed on the 31st minute. Successfully executed fight and Alliance in full lineup goes to the tavern! 16:10 in favor of Liquid. Advantage in team fights was on the side of the American team. Two more great fights from Liquid, and the world champions were forced to capitulate! 1:0!


Game 2

The second game, and again a big green watermelon Tidehunter performed by Team Liquid! Alliance decided to take a forest Doom to control the aggressive lineup of opponents. Start of the game was rather aggressive: 11 kills were committed during 12 minutes, and the score was 6:5 in favor of Alliance. But as it was in the previous game, after a dynamic start we had to wait quite long for the next active actions. Teams chose to focus on farming, and only occasionally Swedes managed to make some forays. Till 27th minute the score was 10:6 in their favor. Both teams didn't have the decisive advantage, but Alliance managed to break without any resistance the mid of American team. That was followed by a decisive fight, in which Alliance was stronger. Three heroes are in the tavern, the world champions used this time to regroup for the bottom line and to finish the game after killing Roshan. Liquid could oppose anything to this.

 

Game 3

Pick of this game was marked by a quite rare event, in particular, the game of AdmiralBulldog using Lone Druid. Also lets mention an aggressive S4's Night Stalker and extremely aggressive pick of Team Liquid consisting of enduring heroes causing a lot of damage. Alliance even before creeps appearing went to an invasive smoke-gang that brought success: TC was killed, and the first blood was shed by Akke. Unfortunately, it can be considered that the game lasted until the first night. The first gang of Night Stalker, and the score increases from 0:1 to 0:5! From the very beginning Alliance got a good advantage, and all they had to do is to "choke" their opponents extensively, and that was done perfectly. Leaving only for a small "day” respites, at night Swedes did all they could to make Liquid's life difficult. Liquid managed to give a rebuff on the 14th minute, but it didn't change the picture of the game much: while Lone Druid was farming, the rest of the team entertained their opponents by deadliest movements on the map. Liquid fought with dignity, but Swedish tactic of game was more competent. Reached the late-game with a sufficiently large advantage, Alliance put the squeeze on their opponents and came through to the final of WePlay League!
