Chains Stack vs Zenith

Chains Stack

Game 1

Zenith opted for high Area-of-Effect damage, using Gyrocopter and Magnus, while Chains Stack based their strategy on the really frequent combo of Phantom Lancer and Keeper of the Light.

The first blood was grabbed by Iceiceice four minutes into the game, when he payed a visit to the middle lane to unleash a full Bladefury on Night Stalker.

Chains tried to respond three minutes later with a gang on Magnus, but Zenith responded with lightning speed, taking down two heroes and completely turning the fight around.

YamateH picked up his dagger by minute 13, instantly killing the Phantom Lancer under his bottom tier-one.

Zenith went absolutely rampant, killing Chains all around the map, trapping them inside their base. The score was 19-1 when Chains decided to surrender by minute 24.

Game 2

Chains Stack made a surprising choice by picking Phantom Assassin as their hard carry, with a defensive trilane top. Zenith used a very offensive trilane with Night Stalker, Shadow Demon and Lina, and two really strong pushers for the remaining two spots.

The game began really well for Chains, with iceiceice dropping three times against the trilane. The score was 1-5 in favor of Chains, 10 minutes into the game.

Zenith started hunting enemies all around the map, and Chains responded as well. Continuous fights were taking place mostly inside Dire's jungle, and the score was 13-12 by minute 20.

The Singaporean team, abusing their heroes well, managed to split push really successfully, giving an important gold advantage to their heroes. A fight that took place 21 minutes into the game decided the outcome of the match, with Zenith killing four enemies without casualties. Chains called the game a few minutes later as Zenith was finishing off their barracks.
