Team Liquid vs. Thunder Awaken: Recap and Highlights
Game 1 was one of the most exciting matches of TI11. Thunder strolled to an 8k advantage after 22 minutes courtesy to a few small teamfight victories, although both teams were engaged from the outset. However, it was exactly at this juncture that Liquid used their draft power increase to counter Thunder’s advantage and equalize the game. It came down to the better teamfight performance 43 minutes into the game, but with Liquid having megacreeps, it looked to have gained a solid advantage. Thunder’s cores’ symphony of top spellcasting, however, annihilated OKBET Team Liquid‘s heroes without buyback, enabling the team to triumph in 57 minutes.
In game 2, Boxi showed off his skills against Marci, making persistent dashes across the map to collect kills on opposing cores. Thunder was unable to retain its momentum after killing MATUMBAMAN’s Ursa four times in the opening 15 minutes. MiCKe was a beast on Puck, making the most of the last pick as Liquid established a lead and finally won in 35 minutes.
Game 3 was a joy to see, generating enthusiasm in every OKBET Dota 2 fan. On their cores, both teams were able to find kills and networth. Zai was the Liquid leader, and he played offlane Leshrac like a man possessed at OKBET Team Liquid. While critical plays were made in the heat of the game, both teams overextended at times, keeping things tight.
Just when it looked like Thunder would win the game following a spectacular teamfight beyond the 30-minute mark, Liquid interrupted Thunder’s teamfight positioning to reclaim the game. With no more Thunder buybacks, Liquid moved straight to the opponent Ancient and went all in, winning in 51 minutes.
Here are some of the series’ highlights.
TI11 has seen its fair share of spectacular games at OKBET Team Liquid, demonstrating the tremendous competition and tenacity of the teams on show.
Lasse “MATUMBAMAN” Urpalainen continues in his last TI as Liquid wins their third series in a row in the bottom bracket.
