Vici Gaming and CDEC Gaming would meet for a third time at the OGA Dota PIT Season 2: China event, this time in the grand finals to determine who would be the champion.
Having met twice so far at OGA Dota PIT Season 2: China, both Vici Gaming and CDEC Gaming would be hungry to claim the victory in their third clash at the event. CDEC were able to claim the win when the two teams met in the group stage, while VG were able to claim some revenge in the upper bracket finals just a few days ago and the grand final would separate the two teams in a best-of-five brawl.
Going into the series, it was VG that seemed to just be way ahead of their opponent in every way possible. While game one lasted nearly an hour, that was not seen in the net worth or score line at all as VG dominated in every manner – including a massive Terrorblade from Zhang ‘Eurus’ Chengjun. VG continued to dominate in game two as well, even when CDEC had managed to take down Eurus’ Anti-Mage, the remaining four players held a superb high ground attempt and kept the game in the favour to take a 2-0 lead into the next game.
But, with their backs against the wall, CDEC begun to show their strengths in game three, starting off by banning both the Terrorblade and Anti-Mage that terrorised them previously – and picking up a Spectre for Wang ‘Ame’ Chunyu. This proved to be the best move for CDEC, as they destroyed VG in a little over half an hour and a comeback begun to mount. CDEC went into game four looking like a completely new team and even though Ame’s Spectre was slowed down this time around, they still ran over their opponent, tying the series at 2-2 with a decisive game five on the way.
VG looked to move on and take the grand finals with a Terrorblade pick again, but a last pick Pugna from CDEC threw a massive spanner into the works and dominated them. While the early game period was fairly even between the teams, CDEC begun to take over the game before 15-minutes had passed, moving farther ahead more and more as the game continued. VG seemed in complete disarray and before 30-minutes had passed, GG was called.
A full reverse sweep from CDEC Gaming will see them crowned as champions of OGA Dota Pit Season 2: China, winning one of the first tournaments with big name teams for the organisation in some time.
