The game started off rather calmly, but the action quickly came, as both teams started making rotations. Despite the First Blood going the way of EHOME, we still got some return kills back a couple of minutes later. The early game went very evenly, with the advantage not even breaking the 1k net worth barrier 10 minutes in. As some key levels and items started coming in for both teams, the action increased significantly, with uaNAVI able to get better trades consistently.

As the game moved on, the situation on the map favored us quite heavily. A series of good teamfights saw several heroes, including cores of cnEHOME, dead, while our casualties were quite minimal. That allowed us to maintain a strong map presence, but 20 minutes in, cnEHOME managed to finish off Roshan, with Aegis going to Tiny. That seemed to stall the game for a little bit, as neither team was willing to commit.

More and more farm was coming our way, and uaNAVI were able to get better artifacts and levels faster, than the opponent. After another successful pickoff, uaNAVI went for their own Roshan and claimed in successfully, with Aegis going to Sniper. With that and Cheese at our disposal, we went straight towards the enemy base to try and break the defenses. It took us a while, alongside the used Aegis and Cheese, but we finally broke it and retreated for a little to finish some big items and come back. The final fight saw our team tear through cnEHOME, and the last series is ours!
