HellRaisers [2:1] 4 Clover & Lepricon
The first map started relatively calmly — the teams would catch each other's mistakes but no one was hurrying to start a fight or push lanes. It was noticeable that the teams were nervous since a loss on this map would practically cross out all chances to reach the next stage. Together with it, a number of mistakes in the game was really high — almost all fights in the game would run mussy and a winner was usually the most lucky team then the most skilled one.The only island of stability was Weaver by 4 Clover & Lepricon that quite fast got his items and brought the team a victory on the first map.
The beginning of the second map turned out to be full of fights — in ten minutes of the games the heroes of both sides died all together more than 20 times. However after such an awake beginning of the team, the speed of the match started to gradually drop and the game itself became really long. Anyway, it turned out to be rather good for HellRaisers, the pick of whom was head taller than 4 Clover & Lepricon's one in the late game. Having taken Roshan and caught an opponent who made a stupid mistake, HellRaisers managed to go to the ramp and destroy the barracks on the bottom lane. A few minutes later HellRaisers made a successful attempt of the middle lane storming after which 4 Clover & Lepricon bowed down.
The third map was an absolute opposition to the second one. Both teams decided to play as carefully as possible: the number of kills and fights were cut to a minimum. Both teams took their parts of the map and focused on farming, trying to get as much items as possible before any active confrontation. The gold and experience diagrams had been going crazy by the 20th minute, but none of the teams couldn't take the lead. Only an unsuccessful fight by HellRaisers helped 4 Clover & Lepricon come forward, but quite soon HellRaisers got their own back and the diagrams hit the zeros again. The game got off the ground only at the 57th minute, when 4 Clover & Lepricon fought in a bad way, and, having left with no buybacks, let in the HellRaisers players on their base and lost the throne. 2-1 and HellRaisers are almost in the next stage.
