Team Secret
vs
Cloud9

After taking game #1 Cloud9 dominates the early game of this one as well, leaving Secret to barely hang on. A loss would eliminate them from the tournament. Nevertheless they make the most out of their push potential with a farmed Lycan. Secret keeps pressuring C9, but clearly pays for it in team fight potential.

The actual ending of the game is abrupt, surprising and wonderfully absurd. A fantastic watch!

Vici Gaming
vs
Team Secret

In the Finals of Captain's Draft 4.0 Team Secret is down 2-1 in a bo5 against Vici Gaming. With a strong line up on both sides it's all about getting the upper hand in ganks and teamfights. VG is up 20k gold at one point, but it wouldn't be Dota if this would be the end of it.
Great teamfights and a fantastic drive by both teams to gain absolute advantage guarantee a very enjoyable match!

Game 5 in a Bo5. Naked throne on both sides and two rapiers. Definitely one of the highlights of this amazing series.

Invictus Gaming
vs
Evil Geniuses

If there ever was a "perfect game" for a team in Dota 2 this is probably it.

One of the best 3rd party tournaments of Dota 2 IG is up against EG. It's a short but brilliant game where everything goes right for one of the teams. No errors made, no chances missed. It's the perfect game.

Short, entertaining, a record of teamwork in perfection.

TNC Pro Team
vs
OG

Backstory: TI6. TnC are a small team from the Philippines. Most think they should feel blessed for BEING at TI, and everyone belives OG (the great favorite, multiple majors winning team) will kick them out. Except game 1 happens (it's great too btw). TnC pull out some crazy shenanigans and with a rollercoaster gold/xp graph they manage a double comeback, winning.

The drafting for game 2 is interesting. OG pull out a classic Tiny-Io duo, and TnC answers with a drow strat, featuring Huskar and Dazzle. The game starts badly for them, but the 15k gold deficit is not felt, at all. The teamfights are INCREDIBLE with both teams pulling out every last card. The game has insane chronos, rapiers, base races, mind games. Dota 2 at its finest!

LGD Gaming
vs
Virtus.pro

Everything is on the line. This is the deciding match in the lower bracket final at the Dota Asia Championship 2018. Local favourites LGD need to reach the final in order to qualify for TI8 and to stand a chance of giving China its first major winner. They face the consensus best team in the world, Virtus Pro, who are going for their third straight major win. LGD pick fast-paced lineup built around Maybe's Leshrac whilst Virtus Pro go for a more balanced draft with a Ramzes Terrorblade. This game features a fast start, several changes of momentum and a sublime play which sets up a dramatic victory and sends TobiWan into a high-pitched frenzy.

Team DK
vs
Orange Esports

The finale of an outstanding series, with a risky and unorthodox Ursa + Magnus combination from Orange. DK is always on the lookout for a sneaky Rosh by Orange and meanwhile try to hold on to get their Phantom Lancer and Alchemist the farm they need to win the game. A game of ridiculous high energy teamfights.

mousesports
vs
Darer

89 kills in 22 minutes!

Darer and mousesports go against each other in an incredibly bloody match leading to an average of one kill every 15 seconds. Both teams are super aggressive and determined to win, disregarding any losses. The result is a tightly packed game with countless, highly entertaining team fights.
If you like Rambo this match is pretty much the Dota 2 equivalent.

Invictus Gaming
vs
Team Secret

The legend of the BurNIng Anti-Mage continues.

Team Secret is up against Invictus Gaming in their first game of the lower bracket. Team Secret seems at quite an advantage from the beginning onwards, leaving only spare space to farm for IG's struggling core heroes. Will Secret secure their well-deserved victory or can Invictus make a come back?

vs
Team Secret

Not a single rax falls until over 60 minutes in the game. 5-Man Black Hole. Rubick has the time of his life - stealing spells left an right. Still, the game stays close pretty much the whole time. All-around great match.

Bonus: Darkseer+long game=particle madness. Flaming Spectre, Divine Tidehunter.

vs
The Final Tribe

Royal Never Give Up, after giving up the lead early on, stayed true to their name, defending their throne with everything they got. This game has game changing RPs and incredible Calls and a Storm zipping around trying to find a Tinker before the Tinker finds him.

vs
Alliance

How times have changed...

Alliance meets EG and has to watch out to not get ratted. It's a pretty even game for most of the time (except the beginning shortly), but still very amusing with interesting heroes, plays and turns. Good watch overall.
You really want to watch it for the ending though, which is absolutely ridiculous.
Ding, ding, ding, motherf*ckers!
