HellRaisers [2:0] PRIES @bo3
Both teams were coming up to this meeting being enthusiastic, since we, as well as the boys from PRIES, were celebrating the success at the previous matches within GOCL. A winner of this fight would become the strongest team in the group, and thus get a slot in the play-off. A loser, however, would have to prove his right to take part in the next stage of the tournament.
On the first map HellRaisers tried a classic Tiny + IO combo. And it paid out: together these heroes got 16 kills, having tipped the scales in their team's favor. A few fascinating individual moments by Shachlo and goddam were surprisingly (for a roster with two stand-ins) covered with difficult moves, and here was a less than an hour victory.
Our boys didn't start making up something new on the second map, they had very Tiny + Wisp again. However, at this time PRIES played the early stage of the game rather well, having got a level and gold advantage. But as time goes by their advantage began to fade, while HellRaisers' heroes were only growing up. By the 40th minute HellRaisers had been domination all over the map, that continued to the 43rd minute. The final score is 2:0.
Valentin «valentiNich» Kravchenko, the HR.Dota2 manager's comment:
«The roster was experimental, but the match was very important. We had managed to practise rather good a day before the fight and remembered the popular Tiny+Wisp combo. As we can see, it worked. It is nice that we won. In my tomorrow's blog I will tell you why the roster has become experimental. All the best!»
