The first game started off quite well for ua NAVI - we drew First Blood early on. Our lanes were going very well - Centaur, Alchemist and Faceless Void had very comfortable lanes, unlike the opponent. Enemy Morphling was being pressured heavily, limiting the rotations possible for enemy supports. The first Chronosphere yielded 2 kills for ua NAVI. As the timer hit 10 minutes, we were 1k gold ahead. The more important point, though, was the Radiance on Alchemist by 11 minutes - a great early game.

We had a very good team fight presence, so even without 1-2 ultimates, we were able to pull off good fights. ua NAVI were always looking for engagements to try and exploit the teamfight-heavy lineup of ours. Alchemist, meanwhile, was almost doubling the net worth of the closest pursuer - enemy mid Brood. By 20 minutes, we were 13 kills and around 10k gold ahead. pe Infamous only had 1 tower standing - T2 in the midlane, while we held on to the most of ours. A couple of minutes later, ua NAVI decided to go for the first Roshan of the game, but enemy Earth Spirit denied us this possibility by both killing Roshan and taking the Aegis.

Still, we had to maintain the aggression. A pickoff on Broodmother allowed ua NAVI to take the T2 in mid, and a little later, we started working on T3 mid. The lack of Aegis was quite a serious factor, as Alchemist had to be a lot more careful, but still, T3 fell as a result of the fight. From then onwards, the game's end was already in sight. Only a couple of fights were needed for ua NAVI to take the game - pe Infamous Morphling was unable to buyback, so we demolished all the lanes but top, moving to T4. As most of the opposing heroes were already back, we disengaged briefly, but as ua Crystallize had his Chronosphere off cooldown, he put it to good use, as Morphling dies again - GG.

The second game saw a very early First Blood, as Phoenix overextended a bit too far. The lanes were overall fairly comfortable, even though Nyx Assassin was roaming the lanes, disrupting them a little. Clinkz was still doing just fine against Ember Spirit, getting all the creeps he wanted, and getting level 6 soon. The teams weren't rushing for the kills, though - aside from a few early kills, nothing really happened on the map. By 10 minutes, though, a couple of kills gave pe Infamous a slight advantage.

A teamfight in the midlane saw 2 important heroes dead on the side of the opponent, so ua NAVI secured a slight lead. The game slowed down significantly, with some occasional pickoffs. Soon, ua NAVI tried to improve their position on the map, taking the first Roshan of the game. We became a lot more aggressive on the map, actively looking for some kills and fight. However, pe Infamous were still trying to dodge the fights as much as they could. This could not go on forever - ua NAVI went for the high ground siege. The teamfight saw ua NAVI kill a few important heroes, and T3 mid fell. 30 minutes in, a prolonged teamfight broke out - both sides suffered casualties, but pe Infamous got the worse end of the trade, losing Morphling.

Clinkz got his hands on Scythe of Vyse, increasing his solo kill potential and teamfight threat. His solo kill on Ember Spirit, and death of Axe allowed ua NAVI to approach the high ground - barracks in mid taken. Right after, ua NAVI decided to go for another Roshan, but the teamfight that broke out right after was disastrous - Phoenix got killed before being able to pop the Supernova, and the fight ended with 5 dead for ua NAVI, as we were left without the Aegis. Even though that was a rather heavy blow, we were still doing rather well, maintaining some advantage.

As ua NAVI caught out Ember Spirit in the top lane, we went for the high ground yet again. pe Infamous had to use buybacks on 2 of their cores, but they defended the top lane. Clinkz decided to pressure the bottom lane a little later - Nyx Assassin and Ember Spirit tried to punish him but ended up dying for it. A few minutes later, we finally managed to take a very good fight near the Dire base, killing the cores with no buybacks, and Faceless Void securing the ultra-kill. ua NAVI advance forth!
