Vega lose to Spirit and leave Overpower Cup 17.03.2017 Author // Ace

In Single Elimination brackets of OverPower Cup Vega Squadron faced Team Spirit.

 

First map picks:
Vega: Troll Warlord (Ditya Ra), Outworld Devourer (G), Dark Seer (Mag), Spirit Breaker (Sonneiko), Distuptor (CeMa)
Spirit: Juggernaut (633), Sniper (Iceberg), Underlord (DKPhobos), Monkey King (FNG), Crystal Maiden (Vanskor)

On map one Vega made a couple risky moves: they gave Monkey King to the opponent and lastpicked Outworld Devourer against Sniper. Vega had solid heroes to not let MK do something, but the beginning of the game was lost for another reason. OD has a lot of trouble staying against Sniper but this time he even had supports by his side, so Vega's midlander was taken out of the game.

Considering that other "squadron" lanes were weak and the midgame transition wasn't confident as well, the game ended in 20 minutes.

 

Second map picks:
Vega: Weaver (Ditya Ra), Mirana (G), Centaur Warrunner (Mag), KotL (Sonneiko), Witch Doctor (CeMa)
Spirit: Ursa (633), Silencer (Iceberg), Jakiro (DKPhobos), Enchantress (FNG), Disruptor (Vanskor)

Next game drafts looked fine even though they were not quite like Kiev Major meta ones. This time laning was somewhat even or maybe even in Vega Squadron favor if we consider a triple-kill by Ditya Ra.

This, however, didn't help them in midgame. Long-term runs and fights around Roshan and fortune decides to favor "dragons" and snowball begins. Fng team could finish the game, but made a couple serious mistakes while Vega were fighting great. At some point they teamwiped the opponent and took the map.

 

Third map picks:
Vega: Vengeful Spirit (Ditya Ra), Sniper (G), Centaur Warrunner (Mag), KotL (Sonneiko), Ogre Magi (CeMa)
Spirit: Lifestealer (633), Ursa (Iceberg), Doom (DKPhobos), Earthshaker (FNG), Disruptor (Vanskor)

On the third map Vega's pick looked more solid, but Iceberg got his help on midlane and carried the earlygame for "dragons". Vega were thrown behind with a pick that has to put pressure on the opponent.

And they didn't manage to find a way out of this. 2:1 and Spirit are winning.
