Great start! Vega Squadron beat Newbee 2:0 19.05.2017 Author // sirVatum

Vega Squadron began their way on Starladder i-League Invitational LAN finals with a match against Newbee.


First map picks:

Vega: Troll Warlord (Alohadance), Queen of pain (G), Batrider (Afterlife), Treant protector (CeMa), Disruptor (Silent)

Newbee: Jakiro (Faith), Sand king (Kpii), Ursa (Moogy), Invoker (Sccc), Kunkka (kaka)

Earlygame was great for Vega. Carry was outfarming his vis-a-vis, "sharks" were ganking with success. In the beginning of midgame, however, "squadron" tried to not let Ursa take Aegis and lost all the advantage in an awful fight. Vega understood that the game might last longer than they thought and played carefully. Batrider was still making pick-offs, but nothing more than that. "Sharks" farmed their BKB's and started putting pressure again.

In lategame both teams were going for fights. Buybacks, endless clutches - noone knew who's ahead. But after one great initiation Vega managed to make several important kills and make mega-creeps. They, however, lost G with no buyback, Newbee went for lastpush, but "sharks" defended successfully and creeps did their thing.

Second map picks:

Vega: Troll Warlord (Alohadance), Dragon knight (G), Clockwerk (Afterlife), Rubick (CeMa), Crystal Maiden (Silent)

Newbee: Jakiro (Faith), Tidehunter (Kpii), Weaver (Moogy), Queen of pain  (Sccc), Sand king (kaka)

Second game was very even. Teams were ganking here and there and exchanged kills. In a couple fights Newbee were couple steps away from being teamwiped but "sharks" managed to survive with barely any HP. The key fight was around Roshan and "sharks" didn't only took Aegis but also scored a couple kills. CeMa's Rubick won "squadron" every fight and the gap only grew. Vega took all the outer towers, killed another Roshan and destroyed their first tier-3. It wasn't the end, "squadron" regrouped, made a couple more kills and finished the game in one strike.
