OG has fallen on Day 3 of the DotaPit Season 6 LAN in the bo1 lower-bracket matches. Earlier in they day they overcame Fnatic but were then matched with Newbee. Despite some wonderful plays by Gustav 's4' Magnusson on Centaur Warrunner to initiate the fights, which included a 4 man War Stomp into Double Edge (below), OG were overwhelmed.
The new triple leap of Mirana made escape from Song 'Sccc' Chun extremely tricky and good calls by Damien 'kpii' Chok on Axe set up the fights nicely for the Chinese team. Sccc was fortunate to pick up 2-3 double damage runes for his Mirana and the Dragon lance, Mjollnir and BKB by 26 minutes made him a hard target for Roman 'Resolut1on' Fominok's Slark.
Xu 'Moogy' Han's Monkey King was another threat and he also went for an early BKB after a 16 minute Battlefury and 19 minute Shadow Blade. Resolut1on's Slark needed to find openings by 20 minutes as Johan 'BigDaddyN0tail' Sundstein's Razor was not being able to contribute to fights with Faith's Bane disabling him. To keep OG in the game they needed their Slark but he did not have the items to contend with Newbee's Mirana and Monkey King.
OG tried to delay the game and successfully did so between the 20 to 30 minute mark but with Mirana completing Satanic and Monkey King the Eye of Skadi it was just too much. OG bowed out gracefully with smiles post-match and positive messages on Twitter from captain Fly and new addition Resolut1on.
The result means OG finish 5-6th, outside of the top 4 required to pick up Qualifying Points for TI8.
