Mineski
vs
Team Kinguin

ODPixel: "This game's not over. This game is not over."
Luminous: "Eehh... It's over. It's over. Haha. I mean - it's over."
Narrator: It wasn't over...

Team Kinguin are back 0-1 in a bo3 and need to get this game. Mineski is sporting a few good heroes, but weirdly enough also an Outworld Devourer in safe lane, who rushes a meteor hammer out of all items and kind of seems lost half the time.
This is one of those really unique games that simply stands out of the crowd by being completely different from what you'd expect.

Enjoy!

Fnatic
vs
Evil Geniuses

ESL One Birmingham 2018, one of the last tournaments of the year, started of with a bang as both teams needed DPC points to secure an invite to the International 2018.

Fnatic drafted an IO and Morphling and decided they didn't want to fight the formidable tri-core Evil Geniuses lineup head on. Out came another classic Eternal Envy strat based around relocate backdooring EG buildings. Can EG push fast enough to defeat the rat? Will a rapier help? The game ends with a base race to remember.

LGD Gaming
vs
Team DK

Burning vs Sylar at its best - PL vs AM. Truly deserving of the epic tag.

A good indication of an overpowered hero is when he receives a special nickname by the community (mostly used by those on the receiving end of the pain). This game was played during a time where Phantom Lancer was mostly referred to as "Cancer Lancer", since his split-push potential was fantastic and he was quite hard to control.
DK try to utilize this newly buffed hero and LGD counter with their own Anti Mage pick for Burning who's famous for wrecking havoc with AM. Cue an amazing game with the constant question: Whose carry is going to be the last one standing?

Prepare for the long awaited return of DAC 2017 form Xxs, who now plays mid lane, Aggresif more than living up to his name and Boboka picking an obscure hero and proceeding to make it look utterly game breaking in multiple instances... aka, being Boboka. FTD come out swinging in game 2, and take IG to their limit, and then past it.
Action packed late game until the crazy ending.

The Kiev Major 2017
Quarter-finals
29 April 2017
54 minutes
Evil Geniuses
vs
SG e-sports

The Kiev Major was wonderful for the matches but what stood out the most is definitely the success of SG e-sports, the first South American team that fought their way into a major competition. This is their deciding third game against a sweating Evil Geniuses.

Up until this tournament most pro teams were were formed in North America, Europe and South East Asia, with South America albeit high player numbers being considered sub-par to the established elite. SG e-sports managed to turn this sentiment around with their incredible performance. Beating, against all odds, another major pro team in the previous round and showing the resilience, teamwork and dedication of world class.
The most exciting and disputed match of the Kiev Major and one of the best matches of 2017, with incredible plays from both teams. A match that will stay forever in our hearts.
