After taking down OG yesterday at WePlay! Pushka League
Season 1, Team Secret were back in action today, this time against Team Liquid.
After Alliance found themselves claiming another victory, as
they took down OG.Seed in the first series of the day, completing wins over
both OG and their sister squad in the group stages of WePlay! Pushka League, another
big series was set. Secret were, as expected, unbeaten through the event so far
and after taking down OG yesterday in an amazing series, they were looking to
cement their spot at the top of the European group with something of an easy matchup
today. With only a single victory to their name, Liquid were seemingly a
walk-in-the-park, but after taking down Nigma, anything was possible.
The first game was relatively even between the two teams,
with the net worth advantage not really peaking too far above 5000 for most of
the game – that was until just after 40-minutes when Liquid managed to secure a
die-back kill on Lasse ‘MATUMBAMAN’ Urpalainen’s Void Spirit and moments later
the game was over. But Secret would fight back in the next game, controlling everything
from start to finish as they meticulously tied up the series and brought us to
a third and final game.
Although Secret were in control for a brief period in game
three, it would never last, as Liquid’s team fight draft of Phoenix and Witch
Doctor supports proved to be far too much for their opponents to deal with. While
Secret did not give up right away, they never had the damage to win any fights completely
and would suffer their first loss at the WePlay! Pushka League.
With a massive upset, Liquid claim a 2-1 victory over
Secret, pulling them away from the elimination zone of the EU bracket for the
time being. The day is not over at WePlay! Pushka League either as Virtus.pro
and Natus Vincere close out the day in epic fashion.
