HellRaisers [0:1] Invictus Gaming
The second gaming day our guys started with two lives in asset. Chinese from iG had the right the first to challenge any team. Their choice was Team Secret, however prudent Puppey&Co decided to use a single opportunity to refuse playing the match. Thus HR once again faced the grandees of Chinese Dota.
As it was in the first match of these teams within Red Bull Battle Grounds 2015, iG were considered as favorites and showed a worthy game. Starting five minutes of the match HellRaisers looked well, however after first serious fights Invictus went ahead. They increased their advantage in approximately 15k of gold and exp, but several won fights by our guys returned intrigue into the game on 40th minute. Not for long. IG gathered together and rapidly finished the game.
HellRaisers [0:1] Team Malaysia
HellRaisers won over the Malays yesterday, however today everything went by another scenario, From the beginning nothing was telling about the trouble: at the start HellRasers won completely until a failure in the fight happened on 15th minute. After that accident the game was quite straight until 39th minute. MY come to our highround through the mid-line, but HR in reply break the hard line of the enemy due to pair of IO + Tiny.
The last stage of the game started with skirmishes on the light line that Malays tried to push. HellRaisers gave a confident resistance, but that fight was the last positive moment for our guys on the tournament. Further followed series of unsuccessful skirmishes one after onother, which forced HR to type «GG», thus to say good bye to the tournament.
