In game 2 of their series against Team Aster in the 2021 China DPC Season 2: Upper Division, SAG smoked four of their heroes and took down the enemy safe lane tier 1 tower in just 25 seconds.
Ironically, this bizarre strategy did not help SAG take any sorts of advantage in the game as Aster outplayed them to force a 13 minute GG call.

Sparking Arrow Gaming (SAG) has replicated a hilarious strategy from an amateur Dota 2 league. In game 2 of their series against Team Aster in the 2021 China DPC Season 2: Upper Division, SAG smoked four of their heroes and rushed to the enemy safe lane tier 1 tower. As the horn blew at the 0-minute mark, they started hitting it and eventually took it down in 25 seconds. Ironically, this bizarre strategy did not help SAG take any sorts of advantage in the game as Aster outplayed them to force a 13 minute GG call. SAG lost the series 2-0 and extended their losing streak in the tournament.

SAG take a 0-minute tower against Team Aster but lose the DPC game in just 13 minutes

This 0-minute tier 1 gameplay was showcased by a team in the Amateur Dota 2 League Season 31, and it became viral after a community member, u/Daddy-Odin, shared it on /r/dota2

SAG seemed to have really liked this strategy as they displayed it in game 2 of the series against Team Aster in the DPC. SAG has been in a spot of bother in the 2021 China DPC Season 2: Upper Division as they are on a losing streak. Since they had been completely crushed in game 1 of the series, they perhaps brought forward this insane strategy to catch their enemies off guard. 

Though they were able to get an early advantage by taking this tower, they were massively outplayed in all other departments. With a scoreline of 18-4 and the enemies killing them near their tier 3 towers, SAG tapped out in just 13 minutes.

While SAG was no match for the in-form side of Aster, it will be intriguing to see if teams in other regions adopt this strategy to gain an early advantage.
