HellRaisers [0:1] Team Spirit @bo1
The first battle had started before the creeps came out — the teams met each other at the bottom rune and, after almost a one-minute fight, returned to the lanes, having lost two heroes from each side. Nevertheless, it was not the end of the aggression — 11 kills had been got by the fifth minute. Despite a rapid dynamics of the game, the diagrams showed the balance between the teams.
After the 10th minute Team Spirit started to gain the advantage — a few successful gangs let the team take the lead in gold, but the gap wasn't big. Both teams had their own strategy for the game — as soon as Team Spirit took the lead due to split pushing and gangs, HellRaisers won back the lead on the map. By the 35th minute Team Spirit managed to gain the double advantage and start the siege of HellRaisers' base. Two minutes later the first barrack fell, after three another minutes the middle lane was destroyed. HellRaisers did not have chances to win, so they gave up.
