For the fucking win
These two games where really funny, And i guess the russians end up having to tell us about their drinkingbehaviour to explain these games. J/K :)
Anyways, Enjoy the replays. These are really good replays and i recommend both games. I played first and then i sat out the second.
Game 1; About the firstblood. Its allowed to have some luck too. And i couldnt decide if i really wanted to fall back since i had one more heal really soon and i was hoping the tower would get him. But with the miss. Yeah, you watch it!
This game was really hard for me in the beginning. I had problems getting any creeps middle, naix denying me and im not the best lasthitter around, and i always had to stay back beeing afraid of misses. When i got the firstblood that helped me alot, and my start was better. This clockwerk came a couple of times to mess me up tho, even if i think it was more frustrating knowing he was missing.
Shaker helped me abit, and i went top vs warlock. Him beeing just as hard for me, dropping golem on me and i almost died again. It was pretty nasty the first 15-20 minutes of that game for me, with me barely surviving and having to both go back and stay back alot. Overall our team did really fine at this time, and we were slowly getting the items which we needed to finalize our play. Taking down some towers and taking some fights automaticly gave me some extra money, and after we took down tower two on the right side we all had items enough to finish the game - and we did.
TC and Shaker combined in the teamfights delt so extremely much damage and with Me and witchdoctor both able to heal it seemed as we were unkillable - even if TR had some more farm on their heroes here.
First off we have to decide whos gonna sit out this game, i dont know whos turn it was but i decided to sit out. I felt very good about the first game, and i was in a good place of sitting out. So i did. We already before pickphase started decided to go for a even more pushingsetup, and we had some fun when we saw them banning batrider after game one - know we knew they were worried about our strategy.
The strat consisted of 4 heroes that can create/take over creeps/spawnlings and necrolyte again. We attempted to take roshan at level 1 which failed miserably with two of us dying.
Pushing tower down right away, giving some gold to the team. But still getting owned alot. I think the score was
0-7 before the matchsituation changed somewhat and we could start getting kills - not any towers tho.
Smiske playing an awsome Enigma this game, fixing kills and setting up good fights. Xoy never surrendering to farm up the necrolyte, Fire pressuring without any stop with Furion made the Sentinel team not really able to gather up and force fights. Which i think they wouldve won atleast early. When they did push fire managed to get down outter tower and later also backdoor those raxes, which now made one of our sides push all the time.
This with a combination of scourge heroes getting both necrobooks, levels and farm just made it impossible for sentinel to defend anymore. THe pushes were really hard with mass creeps and book, and smiske setting up some really awsome blackholes (or TR standing to much together - your way of seeing it??) leading more pushes to victory.
Beeing able to take roshan two or three times had alot of impact of the game too, and it was really amusing seeing babyknight playing wolf - which he did with an alternative itembuild and with a great result.
Synderens chen able to both meka and heal in teamfights giving the heroes alot of extra hp, and ofcourse the centaur and ursa stuns just making the teamfights a little bit easier.
Again a strategy with heals, and again a win for us!
Gonna be interesting too see who we are playing against in the finals.
