Dragons sure find it hard to take some heat as Digital Chaos falls to Newbee 2-1 in today’s first Best of 3 Matchup. w33 and MiSeRy will have to fight their way in the lower bracket of the Main Event in order to stay in this tournament, while Newbee now sits at a comfortable top 6 spot and becoming the first team from China to do so in the Manila Major.

Game 1

Mu Mid w33
Hao Carry Resolut1on
Kpii Offlane Moo
Chuan Support MiSeRy
Kaka Support Saksa

Game 1 of the best of 3 matchup featured a very deadline teamfight combo from Newbee as they bring in the infamous Tidehunter, this time on Kpii with Hao‘s Lifestealer together with the Wisp on KakaMu on the other hand looked to counter w33‘s Death Prophet by handling a Viper at mid, and for DC‘s draft, a lineup centered on the push with MiSeRy‘s Chen being brought in. Digital Chaos were the first ones to initiate the aggression in this matchup as an assisted kill scored the first blood for w33, using a double hadouken by Death Prophet’s Crypt Swarm and the Shockwave from MiseRy‘s Satyr Tormenter.

The first push came also came relatively early for Digital Chaos as they worked through the push on the Tier 1 top for Newbee while following up with another Tier 1 at the the bottom lane shortly after. While the lanes looked like they were equal in terms of the farm and CS at a quick glance, what DC did not anticipate was a very early Blink Dagger from Kpii, after farming up a very healthy Ancient Stack in the Radiant side jungle. It was Newbee‘s time to shine from that moment on as they picked up kill after kill, and after some minor retaliation went for the high ground push after securing the Aegis on Hao at the 26th minute mark, DC‘s middle lane barracks fell right after with the whole chinese squad still alive and attempting for another uphill siege. Digital Chaos prepared for a final stand but with suddenly losing Moo and Saksa they find themselves terribly outgunned and will have to give up Game 1 after giving Newbee another set of barracks at the bottom lane at minute 32.

Game 2

Mu Mid w33
Hao Carry Resolut1on
Kpii Offlane Moo
Chuan Support MiSeRy
Kaka Support Saksa

Looking to turn things around, Digital Chaos bought out their big guns as the Invoker made its way to w33 teamfight is not the only thing on DC‘s mind as the Lycan on Resolut1on spelled an all out push with Moo‘s Batrider for teamfight and gank control. Newbee went for a somewhat balanced draft with Mu on the Death Prophet and Hao on the Weaver while retaining the Tidehunter for KpiiDigital Chaos looked to dictate the tempo of this game though as a back-to-back kill exchange between Moo on the Batrider and Hao‘s Weaver came in during the early stages of the game, followed by multiple fights involving MiSeRy-Saksa and Moo for DC while LGD investing HaoKpii and ChuaNw33 slowly started to make his moves opening up the early push with DC securing 3 Tier 1 towers in quick succession during minute 12 and 13. A mini fight broke out at the Bottom lane tier 2 for DC as their attempt to trade towers was halted by the defending NewbeeMooSaksa, and MiSeRy rotated towards the bottom lane to try and defend, and although they might have lost their tower they got Mu and Kaka in the process.

While Newbee scrambled to make something happen of their own, one being securing the Aegis for HaoDigital Chaos just kept on bulldozing their towers with the Lycan and Death Prophet, going uphill at minute 29 and just dismantled Newbee‘s Barracks, the push overwhelmed the Chinese as DC went straight for the throat and finally securing the game, forcing out the GG with 23-12 on the final scoreboard.

Game 3

Mu Mid w33
Hao Carry Resolut1on
Kpii Offlane Moo
ChuaN Support MiSeRy
Kaka Support Saksa

An aggressive lineup from the Chinese was the centerpiece of their draft in Game 3 as the Slark came forth for Hao with Kpii opting for another precision offlaner, the Faceless VoidMu on the other hand will be top it off with the Death Prophet whereas DC looked to counter it with control with w33 on the DK, and Moo on the Batrider with Resolut10n handling the position 1 Batrider. This will look to become a very onesided matchup though as the early kills on Hao and Mu laid the foundations of the Newbee advantage, although DC did exert some retaliation through reacting to Newbee‘s rotations. A skirmish at the middle lane Tier 1 resulted in Hao being a victim to DC in exchange for the tower, and with the Slark down Digital Chaos moved in forward to try and pick the rest of the litter, they almost had it as Kaka‘s Ultimate placement was way out of position but he would then redeem himself with a 3-man Sunray, burning the life out of Digital Chaos and taking out Resolut1on and MiSeRy in the process. DC was still able to continue on with the tower takedowns for a while, chomping through Newbee‘s Tier 1s but Hao‘s Slark was way too much to handle for the team as the Chinese squad just plowed through Digital Chaos, pinning the enemy right inside the Roshan pit for one last fight, and wiping them out, forcing the GG and moving on to the next round of the Upper Bracket.
