HellRaisers [1:2]Averia @bo3
The first map ran rather quickly — HellRaisers took heroes for aggressive pushing and easily implemented their plan. Our team seized the initiative from the first minutes of the game and started to put the pressure on the rival — they needed less than 15 minutes to take a victory on the first map.
The second map lasted almost three times as much. On the second try Averia braced up and forced their speed of the game. By the middle of the map HellRaisers had been catching up with the rival, but then the Averia five made a few successful fights and took the bottom lane. By the 30th minute HellRaisers were closed at their own base, but they did try to seize the initiative themselves, having forced the fight at Roshan's pit. Averia were ready for that, so the fight turned out to be the last episode on the second map.
The decider started with an aggression by HellRaisers, who got a series of unanswered kills, due to which they took the lead. Averia tried to return into the game, and even managed to force a towers exchange, but it did not bring the targeted result. By the 20th minute HellRaisers took Roshan. Nevertheless, the first attack on the ramp ended unsuccessfully for HellRaisers — Averia did defeat the attack and won a few minutes of calm. At the 25th minute HellRaisers did away with all heroes of the rival and finally took the leadership on the map. However, Averia were not going to throw in the towel either — gradually the team managed to get back into the game and eventually made a real comeback. The final score of the match is 2:1 in Averia's favor.
Acting Dota 2 team manager, Anton «b-off» Borodov's comment:
«An okay beginning of the third map, the advantage by more than 20 thousand gold, but a couple of fights, in which we took bad positions and Spectre destroyed everything. In addition, objectively speaking, our item-builds were not perfect. I can't call it a failure, but they had and could play better».
