One of the best things to watch about OG is their unpredictable hero picks. Right from the old days with support Gyrocopter to offlane Chen in recent days, OG have managed to surprise nearly each team they have played against. And they did it again today against Alliance in OGA Dota PIT Season 3, this time with a mid Oracle! Topson, who recently became a father, is sitting this tournament out. OG’s coach Sockshka is stading in, meaning N0tail is back to his old position 2. N0tail played Void Spirit, Oracle and Puck in the 1-2 deafeat against Alliance, and the game they won was with the mid Oracle.
It wasn’t a game where Oracle was just a healer and saver, N0tail was the hero with the highest kills in the team with a score of 14/4/19! Notail played a dual role of nuker and healer, making sure the Faceless Void and Venomancer were constanly purged and healed and targets inside the Chronosphere were hammered with Purifying Flames.
Inspite of this impressive feat, Alliance got the better of OG in the first and third games, relegating OG to the lower bracket. Joining them there will be winners of OGA Dota PIT Season 2, Nigma, along with VP.Prodigy and 5men.
OG, Nigma and the others in the lower bracket will have to wipe off their losses quickly and get ready as the elimination matches begin on the 24th of September. The grand final will be played on Saturday, the 26th of September.
