MYM vs INSANE GAMING 1:0
Posted on March 6th of 2014 by Sebastian Edfeldt
Tonight we played Insane Gaming in our first game of the SLTV StarSeries Season IX. The StarSeries takes place four times a year and consists of 16 teams fighting during the regular season in best of 1 games worth 3 points. The top 6 of the 16 teams will go to grand finals at LAN taking place at CyberArena, Kiev. On the other hand, the teams placing at 15th as well as 16th will drop to the ProSeries instead of StarSeries.
Current standings in the SLTV StarSeries Season IX:
Tonight’s game started out as what one could easily be described as painful to watch for any MYM fan. After the first fifteen minutes Insane Gaming were ahead with 8 kills against 2 with an Invoker that seemed to be too much to handle at that point. The turning moment came quick however, once Jonathan “Unicorn” Arge and his Slardar got his hands on the Blink Dagger. Shortly after a very well farmed Weaver in the hands of Marcus “Ace” Hoelgaard purchased his Linken’s Sphere. Two core items as well as managing to take down the enemy Invoker and the momentum completely swung around. From that point on, MYM.DotA2 simply had control and won the game giving us a great start to the season.
This win in the first match will surely help boost our confidence for the long season ahead. At the moment Na’Vi is leading the table with 3 matches played and all 3 of them won. Second is Alliance with one less match played but also having defeated their opponents in all of their matches. MYM and Empire are tied for third having played 1 match a piece and coming out victorious in their season debuts. Hopefully the season will bring many more happy moments in the future!
