We are analyzing the DAC 2017 and also dicussing some problems that occur during LoL ranked matches in our weekly eSports Boulevard News.
Invictus Gaming, led by Fu “Q” Bin, exhibited an astonishing performance against team OG, to lift the DotA 2 Asia Championship 2017.
The $244,798 (Php12,239,900) grand prize is the reward to Invictus Gaming for winning the DAC 2017 and all the fame that goes with it. Earlier in the competition, OG sent Invictus Gaming to the lower bracket of the playoffs. The first team which felt the wrath of Invictus Gaming’s vengeance was Newbee in the lower bracket, then they swept OG with a 3-0 series win in the best of 5 Grand Finals.
By the looks of how the series played out, it could be speculated that Invictus Gaming found OG’s weakness and exploited it. Although OG was the most dominant team in the tournament, which lost only to Team Vici Gaming J in the group stage, Invictus Gaming didn’t even give them an opportunity of a comeback by overpowering the match with a 3-0 victory.
This incredible performance of Invictus Gaming cannot be attributed to a single player, as it was a great symphony of skills and a team performance. The captain of the team, Q, played the support role in the series and did not disappoint with a Warlock pick in two out of three games. It was a great counter to OG’s aggressive playing style, putting OG on the defensive. The versatility of Team Invictus Gaming was in an exhibition as BurNIng played the third game of the series with a Vengeful Spirit in a carry role showing the confidence of Invictus Gaming.
Ou “Op” Peng had the most kills in every game of the series. He exhibited great awareness and skill to punish OG in almost every team fight that took place. The Riki plays by Ye “BoBoKa” Zhibiao were a great sight to see as he made three Rings of Aquila on the hero which turned out to be fantastic (he feels bad that he was almost invisible the entire game). Most of the one-sided trades may very well be credited to the great positioning of Lin “Xxs” Jing.
Even though China lost the All-Star game, they still successfully defended their home ground with a strong victory in the DAC 2017. With the Kiev Major just around the corner, will Invictus Gaming be able to ride their momentum and continue their winning spree into more championships? Will OG pursue their streak as the masters of the Majors? Only time can answer such questions.
Surprise, surprise everyone. In the perspective of ranked gameplay, the release of a new champion always causes more harm than good, a theory which almost everyone accepts. There’s always that one guy who quite literally, minutes after buying the champion without even considering a little practice, thinks that he/she is skilled enough to carry out a rampage on a champion in ranked without having the slightest clue of the combos or the mechanics.
The end result is inevitably a disaster most of the times. And it seems to happen in almost every ranked game at the beginning of the champion’s release.
Finally, all your concerns have been heard by Riot, as they see that it is a problem and might have come up with a solution that may very well benefit your future games.
The design director Ghostcrawler has said that Riot is thinking of ways to reduce the toxicity in ranked by implementing a condition that before the new champion could be played in ranked games, it will be mandatory for a player to play the champion in a normal match for as little as one game. In another situation, he/she has to play the champion in the practice tool before playing in ranked. As the design director acknowledged that although the community shows a great response to the release of the champion, it is somewhat unfair to the ranked games and a solution is very much on the radar of Riot.
But alas there are no signs of this disable happening anytime soon. So this “benefit” will not be awarded to Xayah and Rakan players coming in ranked. And on a personal note, you should probably scope out the current patch notes to make sure you aren’t the one holding the team back.
