Team Dignitas stays alive, sends Mousesports packing
Dignitas defeated Mousesports and stay alive after falling to the Losers' Bracket and will now face Team Liquid in the next round who defeated Kaipi earlier.
With Dark Seer abandoning the top lane, it gave Mouz the opening to easily destroy the tier-1 tower at around the 4 minute mark. Dignitas countered to take down a tower of their own after destroying the bottom tier-1 tower 6 minutes into the game.
In the 8th minute, Dignitas showed how aggressive they were after diving into Mouz at the middle tier-1 tower but they could not get the kill. However, it forced Mouz to back off and allowed them to take down the tower easily.
As the game progressed, Dignitas' constant aggression paid off as they were able to get kills all over the map and Mouz just could not do anything about it and was forced to try and matchup against Dignitas' strong team-fight lineup.
At the 17 minute mark, Dignitas was able to secure the Aegis of the Immortal after winning a huge team fight where they caught Lone Druid in the Dire ancients.
Dignitas then proceeded to push the top lane where they found themselves in a huge team-fight in the Dire jungle where a clutch Reverse Polarity steal by Rubick early on led to a team wipe and eventually the "GG" call from Mouz 19 minutes into the game.
Mouz was able to get first blood on Dark Seer at the 3 minute mark with a surprising mana leak from Keeper of the Light doing the job to hold Dark Seer in place, despite a failed Impale attempt by Lion.
At the 6 minute mark, a rune chase by Magnus and Templar Assassin led to a huge team-fight because Clockwerk was able to take the Illusion rune before Templar Assassin did. When more heroes from both teams joined in the fight, Mouz came on top with Clockwerk getting a triple kill after the dust settled. Mouz was able to get a few more kills in the top lane constantly diving at Dignitas without hesitation. After 10 minutes, Mouz had already bagged 10 kills whereas Dignitas got just two. Mouz was also winning team-fights 4v5 which allowed Phantom Lancer to free farm in the bottom lane.
Dignitas tried to make something happen by securing the Aegis of the Immortal at the 12 minute mark but had to sacrifice their top tier-1 tower to Mouz in exchange.
As the game progressed, Mouz was slowly taking control as they were just out-farming Dignitas in particular Phantom Lancer who is having a great time in the bottom lane.
At the 20 minute mark, Mouz took down all of Dignitas' outer towers after destroying the middle tier-2 without problem. Mouz won a few more team fights soon after as Dignitas just could not handle the constant aggression and the item-gap was just too huge for Dignitas to recover from.
At the 30 minute mark, Mouz was able to destroy the bottom barracks after winning another huge team-fight that led to Dignitas tapping out and forcing a decisive Game 3.
In Game 3, Dignitas opted to go for an aggressive tri-lane to basically try and shut down or at least slow down the farm of Phantom Lancer. Despite that, Mouz was able to get first blood on Rubick just 2 minutes into the game. Dignitas was however able to get a revenge kill a few minutes later taking down Jakiro.
With the kill score even, Dignitas was edging ahead when it came to item progression while Mouz was ahead experience-wise.
With Magnus getting his Blink Dagger after 13 minutes, it was difficult for Dignitas to engage and forced them to think twice before making any move.
At the 15 minute mark, Dignitas was able to get three kills off Mouz with Magnus' Reverse Polarity on cooldown. They then destroyed the bottom tier-1 tower and secured the Aegis of the Immortal. After that, Dignitas was relieved that Mouz’ aggression stopped which gave them room to farm up a few more items.
At the 21 minute mark, Dignitas smoked up and was able to pickoff Jakiro and Magnus and easily destroyed the middle tier-2 tower.
As the game progressed, the momentum was slowly shifting towards Dignitas as they were being aggressive and Mouz was just standing pat and allowing Phantom Lancer to farm up his items.
At the 28 minute mark, Dignitas was able to take all of Mouz’s outer towers after destroying the top tier-2 tower and later secured their second Aegis of the Immortal.
At the 37 minute mark, Dignitas was able to pickoff Magnus and later pushed the bottom lane where they destroyed the tier-3 tower. Magnus was forced to buyback and managed to catch the retreating Dignitas heroes but unfortunately paid for it with his life along with Clockwerk in the clash after another clutch Reverse Polarity steal from Rubick which led to a bottom barracks down.
At the 40 minute mark, Dignitas decided to take on Roshan instead of defending the top lane. Fortunately for them, the Blink plus Reverse Polarity from Rubick gave the rest of his team mates time to defend and led to a four hero kill. They then decided to push the top lane and were able to get four kills after diving at Mouz in their base forcing Mouz to tap out.
