Round 4 - Best of 5
Game one was rough for the South American squad E.Wolves as they were mercilessly crushed in 12 minutes and 32 seconds. Running an aggressive tri-lane with Venge, Undying and Chen, coL was able to shut down and kill E.Wolves's support and carry heroes multiple times. With three heroes under-leveled and under-farmed, E.Wolves eventually fell to the pushing power of coL's Chen and Nature's Prophet.
Yet another rough game for E.Wolves as they were killed and ganked from minute zero. Consistently having to fear coL's Bounty Hunter and Spirit Breaker, E.Wolves's cores were unable to farm well and when they were forced to start five manning in fears of getting picked off, they suffered heavy losses in nearly every single engagement and lost the game.
Taking a page out of coL's book for game three, E.Wolves drafted a Chen and Natures Prophet to secure some early towers and a strong laning stage. All was going well for them but E.Wolves was caught off-guard by coL's Broodmother who secured multiple towers and solo kills. In order to stop the spider menace, E.Wolves stopped their pushing efforts and redirected efforts to Brood. This did not work out well for them as coL's other heroes were given space to farm and take towers, eventually winning by overpowering E.Wolves.
