Team Aster shockingly taps out of the game in 13 minutes in the OGA Dota Pit S5
Team Aster faced off against PSG.LGD during the second lower bracket round of the OGA Dota PIT S5: China. Both teams entered this matchup with wins over Royal Never Give Up and Vici Gaming respectively.
Team Aster had lost the first game to PSG.LGD and was hoping to win the second one to remain in the tournament. In the second game, PSG.LGD chose Techies as the final pick for Zhao "XinQ" Zixing, who is considered to be one of the best at the hero.
During the first 10 minutes of the game, there was not much action, but both teams did get a few kills here and there. Aster decided to invade the enemy's high ground at the 13 minute mark. They successfully began the fight on Wang "Ame" Chunyu’s Templar Assassin but PSG.LGD turned it around with some impressive spellcasting to net three kills in the end.
The teamfight propelled PSG.LGD to a minor 2k lead, but the game still appeared evenly matched. A few seconds later, Monet was killed by Techies Mines, which apparently forced a couple of members of Team Aster to call 'GG.'
