The battle between secret and og rages on. While clearly secret is the better team right now I respectfully propose the following two salty OG fan statements.

1) two > one
2) how many heroes and strats has icefrog directly nerfed because secret was clowning in teams with them? zero for secret to numerous og response nerfs

Edit wait I was right. Puppey has only one ti trophy, notail has two. But the TI Puppey won maybe doesn't count since it was like pre dota2 right?

Wasn't the first dota2 TI basically a secret where the game was given out in advanced and there wasn't really a league yet?

I get it, and in this game he was ok, but mostly it's just watching trying to cut waves with his vines but get picked off over and over. Even this last game, tree was getting killed a bunch.


Tree was the only reason they were able to kill Timber so fast and so early by working with ET with the magic damage and the slow and the BIG RIGHT CLICK which let them roll the whole game controlling all the timing because they hosed over timber so hard.

He's a good hero, Op.

I really thought they timed kiting the void perfectly for the Aegis to time-out...

And then Secret crushed it, GG any second.

This has been such a great* tournament, I'm hoping my boys can take two games off Secret and give us a full BO5.

* except for Jenkins.

That's the second time in two games today Midone initiated right after having the Aegis reclaimed.

OG absolutely lost that game in the draft.

Team Secret is kinda cursed though. With their current form only a global pandemic could stop them from a TI win. Their are so far ahead of the other teams at the moment.

The level of betrayal I felt when Paradox announced their new wallpaper tore something from me that I'll never be able to recover. They tore away my ability to respect anything, and they tore away my ability to feel human.

The first game was great, the next two felt like OG were trying some off the wall counter-intuitive draft except they forgot to write down how it was supposed to work.
