Day 3 of the WEU playoffs went as expected, but Ooredoo Thunder surpassed everyone’s expectations. Here’s a quick recap of the actions that happened on day 2.
The results for the first match of the day came out as expected. Even though Nigma Galaxy showed a decent performance in game 2, Tundra managed to secure the series.
In game 1, Nigma Galaxy drafted a Keeper Of The Light mid against Pangolier mid from Tundra. It didn’t go according to Nigma Galaxy’s game plan. Taking unfavourable fights, Nigma Galaxy slowly plays into Tundra’s hands. Eventually, playing methodically, at 40 minutes, Tundra Esports closed out game 1 with a score of 10-33.
In game 2, Nigma Galaxy showed a much stronger performance. Sumail played brilliantly on his midlane Queen Of Pain, but it wasn’t enough. As Tundra Esports played calmly, they managed to slow down the momentum coming from Nigma Galaxy and force out mistakes from them. At 44 minutes, Tundra Esports managed to close out game 2.
The series between Monaspa Vs Entity was fascinating to watch because both teams were trying to figure out the meta. In game 1, Monaspa drafted a Tinker mid which Entity countered by picking a midlane Pugna. As the match progressed, Entity played methodically, and they choked out Monaspa. At 38 minutes, Entity took game 1 with a 30K gold in the net worth lead. In game 2, both teams traded blows for blows. Around 25 minutes, Monaspa flinched first, and Entity played patiently from then onwards. At 45 minutes, Entity eventually closed out game 2.
The series between OG against Ooredoo Thunders was the most anticipated match of the day. The series was intense as well. Coming into the series, people were rooting for the underdogs- Ooredoo Thunders, as they managed to take down Gaimin Gladiators in the series prior. OG, however, dropped their series against Team Liquid before this series.
Game 1 was intense as Ooredoo Thunders pressured OG from the get-go. Winning the laning stage, Ooredoo Thunders steam-rolled their way to OG’s high ground taking the barracks, leaving OG to defend against the mega creeps. However, at 76 minutes, a crucial mistake made by Ooredoo Thunder was what OG needed to overcome the mega creeps. Game 1 ended with a base race, with OG taking the victory. In game 2, even though Ooredoo Thunders played brilliantly, they have no answers for the Alchemist draft from OG. Losing their footing on the game and having no answers for the six-slotted Alchemist running at them, Ooredoo Thunders eventually tapped out from game 2, giving the series to OG.
