Only one series would be seen today at OGA Dota PIT Season 2: China – the lower bracket finals between CDEC Gaming and Royal Never Give Up, with the losing team finishing in third place.
Yesterday we saw CDEC Gaming fall into the lower bracket finals of OGA Dota PIT Season 2: China after losing to Vici Gaming in the upper bracket finals as well as seeing Royal Never Give Up eliminate Invictus Gaming. This left us with a series between RNG and CDEC today and if their previous series against one another was anything to go by, CDEC would have no problem sweeping through their opponent.
Zeus was a hero pick from CDEC in their series against VG yesterday that did not work out for them, but the team decided to draft it in the first game of a lower bracket series today, even though RNG seemed to have a lineup that would easily kill of the hero. That did not deter CDEC as they took control of the early game period, never allowing Du ‘Monet’ Peng’s Terrorblade any control of his lane – while ensuring that Guo ‘Xm’ Hongcheng’s Zeus remained almost untouched all game.
With elimination now one loss away, RNG turned to a Slark pick, which seemed to give them great way to deal with their opponents in game two. While everything remained even for some time – and RNG even found some good team fights, after the 20-minute mark, they never found a kill. It took one team fight for CDEC to take complete control and thanks to Wang ‘Ame’ Chunyu’s Morphling, a GG was called after nearly half an hour.
The win will see RNG exit OGA Dota PIT Season 2: China in third place, while CDEC will set themselves up for another series against Vici Gaming in the grand finals which will take place tomorrow.
