It was the first game in the day for Lotac and they appeared to be in perfect form, blasting their way through the competition. However, not everything was quite straightforward for Lotac. Game 1 against Team Lagendawas pretty evenly matched, until Lotac took a small advantage after the 30-minute mark, allowing them to eventually subdue their opponents.

In the second game, Lagenda seemed to be playing quite offensively, scoring kill after kill, with Lotac kept at an eight-or-so-points disadvantage, but still managing to amass more gold than their opponents. A reverse sweep saw Lotac progress to the top again and secure a spot at the finals.

The true challenge, though was just about to begin. Lotac was about to face the same opponent, Team Highground, who were the reason that they ended up in the Lower Bracket in the first place.

The Game Begins

Team Highground (HG) plunged into Game 1 with a solid and well-rounded pick, featuring Storm Spirit, Mirana and Enigma which were continuously focused and locked down by Lotac’s crowd control (CC)-heavy team composition.

Lotac responded well with Ogre, Bane and Lina, fielding Weaver and Morphling as their carries and eventually snowballing to the point where they finally broke through the defenses of their opponents and managed to emerge victorious from game one and thus unsettling the balance with Team Lagenda now realizing that their opponents had all intentions to amend the score from the group stage.

Game 2 started with a double kill for “ChYuan” who ate through Alchemist and Bat Rider in the middle lane, aided by Rhasta played by HG’s “eyyou”. That seemed to be the only silver lining in the game, though, because Alchemist quickly turned to be a major nuisance, with Team Highground quickly concluding the game and tying with Lotac.

The next and third game was important for both teams, with Lotac returning on Morphling played by “Raven” who did outstanding job in Game 1. HG responded by picking the all fearsome Doom for his namesake ability which bode no good for Morphling and complemented their offense with a Spectre pick.

Starting off well and securing a few kills for Spectre, HG over-extended early into the game, which was the turning point with Lotac starting to build their own momentum, with the game concluding before the 40-minute mark.

So, it was down to Game 4 into the series. HG attempted to run Rubick in the middle lane but that cost them cost them early, and the team again started to lose their pace while Lotac continued with their march to victory, destroying the Throne in the 34-minute and winning the Predator League grand finals for Dota 2.
