"The irony is that we said before they might struggle to close out games"
Nobody would have expected that the game between Team Team and BOOM ID would make it into the Dota 2 history books, but the last seconds were so unbelievable.
Michael 'ixmike88' Ghannam's team finished off all five heroes from the Indonesian team in order to attack the Ancient. BOOM ID's players were so frustrated by this team fight that the carry called 'GG' and his teammates left the server.
However, they forgot that two of their creep lanes were attacking the North Americans' Ancient, and in the post-match analysis the experts pointed out that BOOM ID would actually have won the game without calling 'GG'. On top of that the Indonesian squad still had the chance to use glyph to protect the Ancient. This must have been a devastating moment for the Indonesian squad.

Now that we have had the IdrA vs HuK moment in Dota, I can't wait for the IdrA vs MMA moment where a team kills their own barracks only to have the other team GG out immediately upon spotting.— JJ - PimpmuckL (@JJLiebig) 11. Januar 2019
