MUFC picks and bans
The game saw Orange opted for a strong burst damage lineup, with Yee Fung 'Mushi' Chai's Queen of Pain dominating the early stages, getting a triple kill. A nice shackleshot from Wei Poong 'Yamateh' Ng's Windrunner ensured a kill on Sand King. Continued mobility dominance allowed Orange to have more map control, and QoP and Windrunner was able to purchase early Necrobooks.
As the game progressed, MUFC found themselves constantly being pressured and having no where to farm. An overconfident Sand King was killed off immediately, forcing him to buyback to no avail. However, it was overconfidence from Orange this time that saw MUFC pick off QoP. Nick 'Silvercross' Lim's Slardar was able to farm up a BKB, and Orange could not bring Slardar down in the fight. Realizing Sand King's detrimental magic damage, QoP opted for a BKB herself, and Orange was able to successfully bring down top rax and avoid any casualties.
Continuous pressure from Orange did not allow much farm on MUFC's heroes
Looking to ascertain their advantage, Orange decided to try and kill off Roshan. Just as Roshan fell and QoP takes the aegis, MUFC initiates with Daniel 'TFG' Wong's Sand King and Slardar, killing off QoP instantly. However, without Enigma's blackhole and better positioning from Orange, MUFC loses three heroes to Orange. Having all five heroes alive, Orange proceeds to end the game through the middle. A 4 man Enigma blackhole was spectacular, but it was too little too late and MUFC calls GG.
Congratulations to Orange, and they walk away with a prize of $2,000 along with Razer merchandise.
