The first game started off rather well for our team - even though ru SoNNeikO was the first one to ide, he saved ua Crystallize on the top lane. A few minutes later, ua MagicaL scored a triple kill in the middle lane with the help from Treant Protector, improving his lane phase significantly. Enemy Mirana was sitting on top of the net worth chart, slightly above our Necrophos and Zeus. By 10 minutes, we were 2k gold ahead, yet just a minute later, a few kills in the top lane solidified our advantage.

The first T1 to fall was that on Dire offlane. The game was full of small skirmishes, as Dire were looking to use Moonlight Shadow quite often. Still, ua NAVI were ahead. The game settled down for a bit, as heroes were working towards their next round of items: Aghanim's Scepter for Zeus, Diffusal Blade for Phantom Lancer. Around 20 minutes in by Nemiga had 2 outer towers remaining, while NAVI held on to all 6 of theirs, with 7k gold advantage and roughly 10 kills ahead.

As Nemiga tried to take bottom T2 tower, ua NAVI responded by teleporting to defend and initiating a fight - we only lost Nature's Prophet, while the opponent lost 3. 27 minutes into the game, the Radiant took the first Roshan of the game, with the Aegis going the way of PL. By 30 minutes, we were sitting on 9k gold lead. 2 minutes after, the first barracks of the game were taken down, as byNemiga lost the top lane. Another fight broke on, with 3 deaths and 1 dieback from by Nemiga - we wanted to take the midlane, but had to retreat.

Eventually, a series of deaths on the side of by Nemiga led them into a nigh unwinnable situation, as they were very far behind. The final teamfight saw ua NAVI deal with the opposing heroes without much trouble, as we take game 1!

The second game didn't start as well as the first one, as by Nemiga took the initiative right away. By 10 minutes they were in the lead in terms of kills, but net worth was barely going their way. ua MagicaL was farming away in the midlane. By 15 minutes enemy Ursa attempted to take the first Roshan of the game, but ua NAVI were ready and intercepted the attempted. Only a bit later Templar Assassin picked up Double Damage, and after killing a couple of Radiant heroes, ua NAVI entered the Roshpit themselves, giving the Aegis to the said TA.

The game stabilized a bit - even if ua NAVI lost the top T2. By 20 minutes, both teams had no safelane towers, while the offlanes remained untouched for the most part. After a succesful kill on Winter Wyvern, ua NAVI broke right onto the high ground, taking half of T3's HP in a matter of seconds. by Nemiga decided to go for a smoke play, but ua Crystallize was there to reveal it, with the rest of ua NAVI destroying by Nemiga - 4 heroes dead. With the majority of by Nemiga dead, ua NAVI went for the highground once again, and by Nemiga tried to repel that push, but lost even more. With no means of defending, the opponent conceded, as we move forth.
