Game one: An unstoppable Broodmother takes the lead
Max 'Qojqva' Broecker caught a convincing victory in his web: Liquid took the first game after only 32 minutes with as many as 42 kills.
Liquid scored a kill every 45 seconds in average and a major part of this deadly performance gets awarded to qojqva's last pick Broodmother. He finished the game on a 20/1/8 score line and nearly 22k networth.
Tommy 'Taiga' Le provided a highlight play on Rubick, where he perfectly stole Soul Requiem and Duel to win the team fight.
Game two: w33po dominates Liquid
In the second match, Nigma pulled out a reverse card and tied the series 1-1. They were ready for a counter-attack and simply went for a comfort signature pick on their side in game two: Meepo for Omar 'w33haa' Aliwi.
The strategy worked perfectly and they could trump Liquid's kill ratio from game one: With 41 kills in only 25 minutes, Nigma crushed one of their opponents every 36 seconds on average. Main deathbringer w33po came close to qojqva's stats: He finished the match with 21k networth and a 17/1/5 score line.
Like in match one, Kuro S. 'KuroKy' Takhasomi picked a rather unconventional position five hero and burned his enemies with Clinkz – a strategy he used in all four matches. He went for two Wraith Bands, Magic Wand, Desolator and Power Treads this time.
Game three: Necrophos brings Liquid's death
Another quick victory elevated Nigma to a 2-1 lead. They kept experimenting with heroes and chose Spirit Breaker for w33 while still counting on Kuro's Clinkz.
The MVP of the match was Ivan 'MinD_ContRoL' Borislavov on his Necrophos (7/3/9). He secured Nigma's laning stage, caused second most damage and got second most farm among all players.
Game four: Look at Kuro, he is the carry now!
The final match was a quick 21-minute stomp by Nigma and the team surrounding Kuroky took the series 3-1 with their last victory.
Kuro stuck to his Clinkz and proved how deadly he can be on the hero: With a 15/4/10 ratio, he took home most kills and damage, accumulating nearly as much farm as his carry. He went for the same build as in game two but switched the Desolator for a Diffusal Blade.
Fluff: Hide yo' kids, hide yo' wives, the Wifestealer is coming
