Slark and the power of creeps: Three teams left at ONE Esports

posted by joinDOTA Staff,
Day five of the ONE Esports Dota 2 World Pro Invitational Singapore is over. Now, only three teams are left in the race for the last title of this year.

Vici is on a winning spree



Vici Gaming eliminated two top teams: First, Team Secret in a 2-1, then Alliance 2-0.

One key to their success is Zhang 'Eurus' Chengjun on his Slark. He picked the Nightcrawler against TNC the day earlier and returned to this hero in both of the series of day five as well.

Against Alliance, he chose an Echo Sabre - Aghanim's - BKB - Skull Basher build, completed by a Paladin Sword which grants +17 damage and 17% lifesteal.

In game three against Secret, he went for a Diffusal Blade to counter Lasse 'Matumbaman' Urpalainen's Morphling. Vici's strategy quickly paid out, the game ended after only 18 minutes and a 24/5 score.



Game two against Secret had a rather bizarre ending. In the middle of a team fight near Secret's base, the game suddendly ended in Secret's favour thanks to the hard work of their creeps on the enemy Ancient.



The second Grand Finalist – Vici or Gambit?



Tomorrow on the final day, Vici has to face AS Monaco Gambit in the Lower Bracket Finals next. They already met in the Group Stage before, which ended in a 1-1 draw. The winner of the series will play in the Grand Finals against Evil Geniuses.



Who do you think is the stronger team – Vici or Gambit?
