Prodota won the series 2-0, but it's the way that they won that makes it a must-watch series (especially Game 2). Game 1 was an exciting back and forth slugfest between the two teams that only saw one team hold a net worth lead greater than 10k at the very end of the game.
Game 2, on the other hand, saw Ninjas in Pyjamas seize a massive lead over Prodota. If all you did was look at the graphs for the game, you'd be forgiven for thinking it was completely one-sided, but even with NiP leading like they were, Prodota were able to find ways to win teamfights.
NiP struggled to push highground, and Prodota were constantly on the lookout for oppurtunities to turn things around. They found their perfect opening when Milan 'MiLAN' Kozomara Glimmer Caped into the middle of NiP's two biggest damage dealers.
But the game didn't end there, because NiP had buybacks. It took another five minutes of craziness before the game was finally over, and Prodota had secured their spot in the Mr Cat EU playoff bracket.
Prodota will face Team Secret in their semifinal match on May 12th at 17:00 CEST (after the lower bracket final at 14:00).
