#TI9: Virtus.pro vs Infamous ⚡⚡⚡ Esports and gaming news, analytics, reviews on WePlay! The latest news on WePlay!

VP met an opponent in the second match of the third gaming day. Infamous is in good shape at the start of the tournament, especially considering that no one expected anything from the South American team.

First map

Infamous started with the high-quality implementation of their pick: Lifestealer, Tusk and Shadow Fiend excellently defended the lines and put significant pressure on the opponent at the beginning. Infamous' "cores" quickly earned gold for the key artefacts and began to win fight after fight.

No[o]ne effectively realized the assembled BKB in a battle near his base at the 25th minute. The Virtus.pro midlaner was at the forefront and quickly "cut out" two of the opponent's characters. This fight became a turning point in the whole game. VP caught the relaxed opponent several times, won back the gold lag, took Roshan and even managed to destroy the Infamous' top lane. "The pandas" woke up and beat an opponent within a few minutes, gaining an advantage in the series and vital points.

Second map

Hoping on the revenge and a draw in the series, Infamous "stole" Kunkka from Virtus.pro, fixing the draft by Chaos Knight, Tiny and Beastmaster. "The pandas" responded with the Juggernaut pick, as well as thick Doom, Necrophos, and Treant Protector.

An equal game lasted until 20 minutes until Chaos Knight got his BKB. The item helped the Peruvians win the fight for Roshan and get Aegis. The implementation didn't disappoint either - Infamous could destroy Tier-3 on the opponent's bot and force Virtus.pro to use three buybacks.

VP had a successful fight near Roshpit at the 35th minute: both teams spent the maximum number of buybacks, and no one had an opportunity to make mistakes except RAMZEsVirtus.pro besieged the opponent's base, won one fight, and then beat the Infamous "cores".
