Vega made it to The Summit 7 close qualifier 06.05.2017 Author // Ace

In the decisive match for one invite to The Summit 7 close qualifier Vega Squadron faced Elements Pro Gaming. Yesterday our team lost to the same opponent in bo1 series, so there was no space for mistakes.


First map picks:
Vega: Timbersaw (Alohadance), Templar Assassin (G), Axe (Afterlife), Tusk (CeMa), Warlock (Silent)
EPG: Slark (Swiftending), Lina (Pingvincek), Magnus (Mitch), Clockwerk (LeBron), Rubick (g0g1)

On map one EPG put themselves in trouble on drafting phase. "Sharks" counterpicked Lina with Templar Assassin while EPG lastpicked Slark against Axe and Timbersaw. Swiftending knows how to play the hero and they were even ahead for a while, but as soon as Axe got his blink, Vega scored 4 kills and began snowballing into the enmy base.

EPG could hope for an RP from Mitch but he wasn't able to turn the game around. The end - complete opponent annihilation under T4 towers.


Second map picks:
Vega: Terrorblade (Alohadance), Invoker (G), Nyx (Afterlife), Tusk (CeMa), Dazzle (Silent)
EPG: Phantom Lancer (Swiftending), Ember Spirit (Pingvincek), Dark Seer (Mitch), Earth Spirit (LeBron), Crystal Maiden (g0g1)

On the second map EPG went for Secret draft with TB counterpick in face of Phantom Lancer but made use of it much, much better than Secret did. Laning phase was even and teams entered midgame with same net worth. In midgame EPG tried to make use of their teamfight potential while Vega were split-pushing and farming with confidence.

At some point in time Aloha reached critical mass, "sharks" went pushing that EPG didn't find answer to. 2:0 and Vega will be playing in the closed qualifiers for The Summit 7.
