TongFu silences critics after crushing Zenith 3-0




TongFu was able to convincingly defeat the Singaporean powerhouse Zenith 3-0 in the finals. After taking the spot of in The International 3, a lot are saying that they do not deserve the auto invite that Valve gave them, but TongFu proved them wrong.





In the early game, SINGAPOREZenith was able to hold CHINATongFu's farm, notably on Anti-Mage and Lone Druid. But as the game progressed, CHINATongFu's item progression just skyrocketed with SINGAPOREZenith unable to continue on with the aggression after a few lost team fights and knowing that there is a Magnus on CHINATongFu's side just makes it hard for them to initiate. Even with a few Reverse Polarity steals by Rubick, there was just not enough follow up damage from his teammates to take down the heroes caught.
With Tinker being the only farmed up hero on SINGAPOREZenith's side, he was not enough to go against an over-farmed CHINATongFu. With that, the item gap was just too much and CHINATongFu over-powered them in the end.




CHINATongFu just took control of the game, lead by Clockwerk's amazing individual plays, picking off heroes all over the map and no doubt he was the MVP of the game. SINGAPOREZenith just had no  answer to everything CHINATongFu throws at them and the Silencer pick just got the better of SINGAPOREZenith as Magnus could not land the Reverse Polarity that he was looking for during ream fights, and a lot of times he could not even release his Reverse Polarity and the Phantom Lancer pick did nothing for SINGAPOREZenith.




SINGAPOREZenith was able to dominate in the early parts of the game with great ganks from the supports but as the game progressed, CHINATongFu's Dragon Knight is slowly farming up his core items that basically chewed through SINGAPOREZenith's lineup along with great Reverse Polarities from Magnus and followup damages from the other heroes. The deciding factor of the game was when CHINATongFu won the last few team fights that heavily shifted the momentum into their side.


Final Standings:

First Place - CHINATongFu

Second Place - SINGAPOREZenith

Third Place - MALAYSIAInvasion[MUFC]Armaggeddon
