Aster and RNG are eliminated from the OGA Dota PIT Season 4: China event
OGA Dota PIT Season 4: China continued today with two huge
lower bracket series which would end in elimination for the losing teams as the
event moved closer to its climax.
After both PSG.LGD and Elephant were able to secure great
victories in the upper bracket of OGA Dota PIT Season 4: China yesterday, their
opponents dropped into the lower bracket and would need to survive elimination
series today. Vici Gaming were matched up against Team Aster, while EHOME and
Royal Never Give Up were to be the second series of the day – and with tournament
lives on the line, we were set for some epic Dota 2 action.
Going into the first series we saw a very back-and-forth
game one for quite some time as neither team were wanting to give up on their
event hopes. While Aster were deadly in some recent events, they seemed to have
lost a fair amount of their edge in the current tournament – struggling through
the group stages. Today they made the mistake of giving up the Drow Ranger to Yang
“Erica” Shaohan twice, a favoured pick for the VG squad, and it was one of the
reasons they were swiftly 2-0’d.
Although they were able to fight valiantly, it was nowhere
near the strength of VG and subsequently Aster were eliminated from the event.
Next up would be EHOME and RNG, which turned out to be
another rather close series, although ending in a 2-0 scoreline. Both games of
the series saw the teams taking alternating fights constantly, but once the
dust had settled, EHOME were the ones to come out on top. RNG did everything in
their power to defend the onslaught, even taking a strong lead in game one, but
it was not enough as one fight from EHOME turned everything around and secured
the series lead.
It took a little over half an hour for the teams to break a
deadlock in game two, but it was, once again, EHOME who came out on top –
without RNG being able to make a comeback this time. With that, the series was
over and RNG’s tournament was over.
That ends the day at OGA Dota PIT Season 4: China, with only
four teams remaining in the event, with the action continuing tomorrow as Upper
Bracket finals between PSG.LGD and Elephant start the day before Vici Gaming
and EHOME fight for a spot in the Lower Bracket final.
