The first game started off on a rather even footing - Huskar had a good laning stage, albeit coming close to death a couple of times. The First Blood was spilled rather late - ua Crystallize finished off Brewmaster. Enemy Earthshaker was going on a lot of rotations, which enabled us to play aggressively on the top lane. With a few levels and items coming in, ua NAVI started rotating more actively. By 10 minutes, Void used Chronosphere to kill Dendi and take the T1 tower in mid. eu Vega went for the top T1 in response, but we rotated back, starting a fight and winning it 3:0.

The teamfight converted into a top T1 taken as well, and ua NAVI went for the first Roshan of the game, Aegis going the way of ua MagicaL. That fight was very costly for eu Vega, as they kept losing the heroes. We have established a fairly solid lead. As we took the last outer tower on the top lane, we went for the high ground push after a few pickoffs. Unfortunately, we didn't manage to take down the T3, and the fight that broke out went rather bad for us.

The game went on, as we spread on the map, getting more farm. As we approached bottom T2, eu Vega initiated a fight and won it, Faceless Void being the sole survivor of it. We decided to wait till the next Roshan - having killed it, we went on the aggressive again. This time around, ua NAVI had a good fight - we took the tower, the barracks and forced out 3 buybacks, losing 2 supports in return. We disengaged for a little while, approaching the bottom lane шт a little, successfully taking it after a nice fight, and forced out the buyback on Mirana.

Vega decided to smoke gank ua NAVI in the Dire jungle, but ua NAVI seemed to have a good read on that, as we were very careful to not overstep the boundaries. As the fight broke out, ua NAVI managed to split the fight well, killing off a couple of heroes and taking the Roshan. That encouraged us to go for the final push - as there were no buybacks on the side of eu Vega, we used all we had in the decisive fight by the Radiant T3. This approach yielded its fruits, as we take game 1.

The second game saw a regular laning setup. Teams were mostly even - some ganks from Earthshaker were coming in mid, until finally, around almost 5 minutes, double rotation from Phoenix and Earthshaker allowed eu Vega to take down Lina, but the first blood was still taken by ua MagicaL. However, our core wasn't really doing too well, as Mirana was dealing a lot of damage. To make the matters worse, the first attempt to kill her failed, leaving de KheZu barely alive. However, ua Crystallize caught up, taking part in a few good fights and raking up kills.

We continued to traverse the map, establishing the relevant vision and taking some fights. By 20 minutes, ua NAVI tried to go for the first Roshan of the game, but eu Vega attempted to intercept. That attempt didn't work out for them, as a team fight broke out, and we picked up some kills. ua NAVI regrouped after a kill on Spectre, and took the Roshan without the danger of Haunt. With the Aegis on hand, we went on the aggressive. Having claimed T2, we TP-ed back to the bottom T2, taking 3 kills and a pickoff on Pugna later on.

As the game went on, ua NAVI closed in on the top T3 tower, successfully taking it down after a good fight, even forcing out buybacks. Another Roshan our way allowed us to take the highground the second time - this time, the battlefield turned into a slaughterhouse. ua NAVI swept across the Dire base, taking every single barrack - Mega Creeps. ua NAVI regrouped a little before another fight - this time, our goal was to let the megas damage the Ancient as much as possible. Even if we lost 3 heroes, it cost Vega dearly. Faceless Void went all-in, and the Ancient fell, as ua NAVI take the series 2:0.
