WTH meanwhile Newbee are beating liquid? This round one is all kinda of hype.

I think it's also worth mentioning that while Ogre totally hosed all over the lane, he's pretty useless into the lategame, especially when Alliance had Tiny and DP as their cores, neither of which cared about having Bloodlust basically at all.

Good game, that. Quite pleased with how well alliance did considering the team/draft they were up against.

Hmm, I wonder if they would have been better just doing BOTs into the base and going for a base race.

They would've still lost but it would be a better ending than just doing nothing, yes

Hotter than Garrison Keillor, but just a little bit.

Newbee looked really good although I think it was mostly that Liquid drafted viper

liquid fell behind with a mid alch and never really recovered. Honestly liquid looked out of sorts all game and is gonna need to step up

I mean they first picked Ogre and then had to do something to try to not just instantly lose to Brood, so they went for lane-dom and a strong early. They were out-drafted pretty hard and very nearly won, though Secret fed pretty hard as well. Still, trust in greedy spida and you will win if it goes late, even when you try really hard to lose like Secret and FEED YOUR rear end OFF.

That Ogre is the reason why Alliance had any chance in the late game though because of how well the lanes went so it was a worthwhile pick still.

10th picking a viper when you've already picked an alch was a weirdass move, yeah. poo poo, it was an ember spirit mid, and it's not like viper hard counters him or anything

I'm trying to imagine a time when I'd actually want to 10th pick a viper and the only thing I can think of is a 9th pick huskar but lord knows you'd just ban the viper then

emp is just insane value, it's just a menace. laning stage is the most fragile. if he gets runover then it sucks probably, but if he gets away with it with a normal-ish laning phase. Quas Wex invoker is p useful.

Suits the teamfighting playstyle that secret tend to favour
