STARK @Bo3HellRaisers [2:0]
HellRaisers started the first map rather confidently — they seized the initiative in the early stage of the game and started to push out the rival from the map. The players of START were surely not ready for such pressure — they would make mistakes both in the micro and macro game. The decisive moment was the strife at Roshan's pit — STARK made a series of mistakes in their attack, which cost a lot for them — the five lost four heroes at once and gave up.
The second map turned out to be quite tasteless — the teams did not hurry to attack, so there were not a lot of kills. The teams paid attention mostly to trying to seize the control over the map, and Nature's Prophet by HellRaisers was a useful tool for achieving this task. The Finnish team had lost the first barrack by the 18th minute. 3 minutes later the second side did not stand either, and after an unsuccessful fight, STARK threw out a white flag. The result of the match is 2:0 in HellRaisers' favor.
Acting Dota 2 team manager, Anton «b-off» Borodov's comment:
«Suddenly we got an offer from the organizers of the European qualifiers for ESL Manila: «Hello! Team Mamas Boys has withdrawn from the tournament, so if you want to play, there is a lobby, that you can join». We did not get lost and did not refuse such a chance. The team is in difficult times, so every victory like this is worth its weight in gold. In terms of the psychological stability in the first place».
Cheer for HellRaisers!
