Rattlesnake vs LGD.cn



Game 1

LGD.cn got off to a very good start in game one, winning all of their lanes. Dragon Knight, Silencer and Shadow Demon managed to get first blood on Dark Seer. DDC's middle lane Queen of Pain completed dominated Kabu's famous Clockwerk, also Yao's Naix was able to leech some easy experience due to poor lane control from the Morphling. However Batrider still managed to farm up at a rapid rate despite most of the jungle camps being blocked off with some clever warding from LGD.cn.

Due to the lack of experience of the new team Rattlesnake, they were heavily punished for their over aggression on a fight that occurred on the top lane; with LGD.cn winning a 2-0 fight. With the early game advantage from LGD.cn, they controlled the tempo of the game.

We often associate DDC as a hard support player, however today, he showed us how to solo middle with Queen of Pain. DDC's Queen of Pain initiated couple of successful ganks on Carry Morphling.

By the 20th minute the score was 11-0 in favour of LGD.cn. Rattlesnake had lost all hopes in a comeback. They surrendered straight away.

Game 2

Game two started with a quick first blood on Leshrac as Rattlesnake three men dived the tower, however Juggernaut lost his own life in the encounter. The game got extremely heated, with exciting team fights lasting up to two minutes.

13 minutes into the match, the game was still very close with the score 7-8 in favour of Rattlesnake. However by the 13th minute mark, DDC's Magnus had already farmed up his blink dagger. This was a surprise factor for Rattlesnake. The blink dagger Magnus hit a three man Reverse Polarity, immediately followed up by Yao's Queen of Pain's ultimate, completely team wiping Rattlesnake. LGD.cn played a game with very few mistakes. After each kill, they took down one to two towers. The reshuffle in the roles of LGD.cn really paid off. In both games, DDC's solo middle really helped LGD.cn to control the tempo of the game with important ganks.

By the 26th minute mark, LGD.cn was already breaching the high ground. Rattlesnake called GG.
