TI5 EUROPEAN QUALIFIERS: NINJAS IN PYJAMAS VS. POWER RANGERS
Sealkid: Witch Doctor
Ditya Ra: Bristleback
chshrct: Nyx Assassin
NIP decide to do an aggressive tri lane against the defensive tri of Power Rangers. The lane setup is hugely in favor of NIP as both solo lanes manage to win their lanes by solo killing their opponent. At first the aggressive tri wins by their creep kill advantage but later on they also manage to find kills on the bottom lane. All core heroes on NIP are in the top of net worth very early on into the game and with this lead NIP start to push down all outer towers which they succeed in around 18 minutes into the game. NIP are at that point closing in on a 20k net worth lead but Power Rangers are stubbornly sticking around, making it hard for NIP to end the game. The game drags on for a very long time considering the start of the game but eventually NIP win the game around the 51 minute mark as Power Rangers are too far behind.
Limmp: Templar Assassin
Sealkid: Ogre Magi
Ditya Ra: Juggernaut
Sunlight: Shadow Fiend
chshrct: Sand King
NIP again go for the aggressive tri lane versus defensive tri matchup but this time it’s not as easy as the previous game. PR win both solo lanes while NIP marginally win the bottom lane, however the rotations from NIP is what turns the game as they take the first tower, win the first team fight as well as take the first Aegis. NIP are continuously successful in the fights and accrue quite the lead that increases very quickly. With the second Aegis of the game NIP take the first set of barracks after a team fight where Handsken manages to silence Juggernaut and Sand King with his Static Storm. Power Rangers smoke up in hopes of finding a way to come back into the game but run into the whole NIP team. Limmp quickly dispatches of Rubick and Juggernaut with his superior auto attack damage, Power Rangers manage to get of both the Requiem and Epicenter in good fashion but it is not enough as no one from NIP dies, the remaining Power Rangers players are quickly killed afterwards making it a total team wipe and they call GG after 31 minutes into the game with Limmp ending the game 15-1-11.
With this victory our last game of the day will be very important for the standings, make sure to catch it!
