Team Nigma Vs. Team Secret – Dota 2 Tug of War Grand Final!
Recently, WePlay! Dota 2 Tug of War: Mad Moon came to a close. All the teams displayed top tier gameplay in the event. The Grand final was between Nigma and Team Secret. Before the finals, Team Secret defeated Nigma in the semi-finals of the event, forcing them into the lower brackets.
Nigma showed excellent gameplay and defeated Gambit Esports and powerhouse like Virtus.pro. Coming face to face against Team Secret once again, it was a unique opportunity for Nigma to redeem themselves.
Game 1: Secret Dominating Team Nigma
Nigma started the game pretty well and dominated the early game. They made full use of their aggressive lineup and pushed Team Secret into the corner. Twenty-eight minutes into the game was when Team Secret completely turned around the game. Nisha started the fight by killing w33 puck, followed by a beautiful Chronosphere from Matumbaman.
Nigma was crumbling, and nothing worked in their favor. It was 36 minutes into the game when Team Secret was able to catch Miracle inside the Chronosphere, killing him with Reaper's Scythe. Game 1 was over at that point, and Team Secret led the series 1-0.
Game 2: Secret Dominated Team Nigma Again
Game 2 did not start well for Nigma. Team Secret dominated the early game, managing to get hold of a healthy lead. There was a chance for Nigma to comeback in the mid-game, but Team Secret played the game smartly. Team Secret played aggressively and never let the Nigma get back into the game.
The lineup of Nigma looked like it had potential, but Team Secret showed top tier gameplay and closed the game 2 in their favor, leading the series 2-0.
Game 3: Comeback is here
After crushing defeat in the first two games of the series, it was a do or die situation for Nigma. Just like in game 1, Nigma played relentlessly and forced Team Secret into a corner. Nigma made full use of their aggressive draft and continued to apply pressure on Team Secret.
Supports from Nigma carried the game more than the carries did themselves. Kuroky and gH played beautifully and never let their carried die in the team fight.
Nigma learned from their mistakes in game one and closed the game 3 in their favor. Nigma was able to stay in the tournament after getting their first victory in the series.
Game 4: The real battle is about to start
It was the game where the early game was a critical factor. Team Secret played aggressively in their safe lane. It looked like a decent game for Team Secret in the beginning, but Nigma proved once again what they were capable of in the late game.
The supports of Nigma were the stars of this game. They were able to turn around the game with their rotations around the map. Nigma had a lot of sustain in their draft, which Team Secret lacked.
It proved as a critical factor to the victory, and Nigma was able to tie the series 2-2.
Game 5: Winners
The way this series started with Team Secret winning the first two games, no one could have predicted a game 5. Everyone was expecting a hype game after the drafting phase. However, it never looked like Nigma was having any trouble. They were able to make full use of their draft this time around as well and backed Team Secret into the corner.
Everyone from Nigma played exceptionally well in the last game. Not only Nigma managed to win the finals by 3-2, but they were also able to avenge themselves this time around after losing to Team Secret in the semi-finals.
