Saturday, June 23rd
11:30 Orange vs TongFu
Tongfu’s strategy to play Anti Mage didn’t work quite well with Orange gaining a considerable gold and experience lead from the very start. Orange’s constantly pushed and took out towers. They kept this lead growing steadily with Mushi’s Leshrac and Yamateh’s QoP picking up items fast. Orange laid siege on the mid lane for barracks and were able to take them out.
13:00 MUFC vs Harrosh
The only highlight of this match was pudge’s hat trick of hooks via the Chen pudge teleport hook combo to the base. Other than that this was pretty much a stomp for MUFC.
14:30 EHOME vs HappyFeet
This was a suprising result as Happy Feet defeated one of the top tier teams of Dota 2.
16:00 sqL vs aL
Still to be played.
