The third day of the Main Event of the Kiev Major actually went so long, with a total of 4 matches ending in 3 games. And one of the longest matches was Evil Geniuses vs SG e-sports, where all the matches 34 can be called every game running for 1 full hour.
The first game, EG was better able to control the gameplay, though Juggernaut – William “Hfn.k3” Medeiros and Lina – Adriano “4dr” Machado had made EG inconvenient.
In game 2, it was SG e-sports that took over the game more. Enigma – Otavio “tavo” Gabriel several times doing epic Black Hole and make the EG team wipe out. Rubick Andreas “Cr1t-” Nielsen which should be stolen speal from Enigma can’t do much either. As a result, EG was forced to continue until the third game.
The 3rd game, became the determining series, Specter early pick by EG. Playing a slow tempo, and leading to the late game, the core heroes from EG were able to disrupt the positioning of the SG e-sports team. Another epic moment, Five-man Dream Coil Puck – Sumail “Suma1l” Hassan at roshan pit before the late game will be an unforgettable moment for this Major. Specter – Artour “Arteezy” Babaev managed to bring the Bleed Blue advanced to semifinal, score ended 2-1 for EG.
EG is indeed one of the top teams in the Kiev Major 2017. However, SG E-Sports’ struggle as the first team from Brazil to appear at the official Valve event deserves appreciation.
With this victory, Evil Geniuses advanced to the semifinals. Around 17:30 WIB they will fight with OG for the Grand Final slot. Watch the exciting match on the YouTube channel RevivaL TV or the Official Twitch channel here.
