HellRaisers Sends Na’Vi to the TI10 EEU Qualifier Lower Bracket
HellRaisers is looking phenomenal in the TI10 EEU qualifier as after taking down AS Monaco Gambit, they have pulled off another upset by defeating qualifier favorites, Na'Vi. In a full-length upper series, HellRaisers prevailed 2-1 over Na'Vi. With an unconventional Techies pick, they outwitted Na'Vi in the first game. The second game saw Na'Vi showcase their class with an easy win, while in the third, they looked like they were in a very comfortable spot until they let the lead slip away, leading to a win for HellRaisers. In order to earn the lone TI10 slot available in the CIS region, RAMZES666 and his teammates will now have to make a lower bracket run.
HellRaisers vs Na'Vi: Match Recap and Highlights
Game 1 was a treat for Techies lovers as Zayac delivered one of the best Techies performances in recent memory. He kept blowing off enemies, allowing his allies to take over large portions of the map and farm effectively. While Na'Vi responded with some decent fights, HellRaisers proved to be too strong as they won the game in 53 minutes.
Game 2 was a clinical performance from Na'Vi, as they controlled the laning stage well and rotated for timely pickoffs to secure a decent lead. While HellRaisers tried their hardest, they always bumped into RAMZES666's Tidehunter, effectively failing their ganking attempts. HellRaisers' lack of consistent damage output resulted in their loss in 33 minutes.
Game 3 saw a better draft from Na'Vi as they had ease of execution and better hero matchups. They even executed their draft well in the early stages, going to establish a decent lead that put them ahead in the game. However, some cocky initiations from them coupled with flawless teamfight execution from HellRaisers meant that the latter got the lead. HellRaisers then went on to play a perfect game, winning it in 34 minutes.
Here are some highlights of the series.
Na'Vi did not live up to the names they have on paper in this series. They appear to be the best group of players in the event when they perform well, but they have shown signs of inconsistency at times. It's also their first tournament with their new roster since No[o]ne- and SoNNeikO only joined them around a month ago. The CIS team is expected to make a strong comeback against the winner of Team Empire vs Team Unique in the lower bracket.
While on the other hand, HellRaisers, another team with some of the best players in the region, are exceeding expectations. They looked out of sorts at the beginning of the DPC 2021, but they have shown some major improvements in recent ttimes to arrive at this point. The team will look to continue their stellar performances in the winner bracket final in order to draw closer to gaining that TI10 slot. They will be playing the winner of Team Spirit vs PuckChamp on June 25, 2021.
