Zenith and LGD.Int stumbles out of Alienware Cup

Dota 2 Gosu “GosuGamers” Gamers

Zenith and LGD.International has been eliminated from the Alienware Cup after losing their loser bracket game versus Neolution.Orange and TongFu respectively.

Two more teams namely Zenith and LGD.International were eliminated from the Alienware Cup earlier today after losing their match against Neolution.Orange and TongFu respectively.

NeoES.Orange did not have too much trouble annihilating the Singaporeans and some of their previous team members in both games. While Zenith is known for drafting and banning creatively, they were not in their zone today getting heavily outpicked and then outplayed on the lanes they were suppose to win. Daryl 'iceiceice' Koh, Zenith's captain, underperformed heavily today on the Lifestealer going 0-5 15 minutes into game one.

While NeoES.Orange had an easy path to the enter the third round of the loser bracket, TongFu's experience today was anything but easy. After losing their first game against the Western boy band, TongFu came back to take second game rather convincingly and subsequently the slow-paced deciding game. In the third game, TongFu had the early lead but LGD.Int repetitively defended their base with success. 43 minutes in, TongFu having the map advantage went for Roshan and LGD.Int took a reckless fight and that sealed the game for the Chinese squad.
