Details of the match
The match between these two teams was an exciting one to watch. Tundra Esports offered a solid game at the beginning of the first game. Then, however, after some poor draft picks, they started to struggle.
In addition, the selection of Oliver “skiter” Lepko, who at the end of the game had a KDA of 1-7-2. On the other hand, this defeat of Tundra Esports was influenced by the poor Io performance of Wu “Sneyking” Jingjun.
After all that, in the second game, we could see how things improved for Tundra Esports; this time, they used Neta “33” Shapira’s iconic Beastmaster and skitter Ursa in a more traditional draft.
However, that draft was not very useful, as Wuiter’s Venomancer went 7-0 and completely shut down skitter’s Ursa. The final push for the OT win was fueled by 18 kills between the two Tundra linebackers.
