The first match results are in,get to see who advances and who falls to the lower bracket in the Wildcard rounds.

The western showdown featured Escape Gaming and compLexity aiming to secure an upper bracket advantage for a shot at the The International 6. Showcasing what is said to be one of the oldest rivalries in Esports when it comes to gamin regions, Europe and North America, both Escape and coL fight their hearts out in the first round but only one gets to proceed to the next round with the upper hand.

Battle Log

A well rounded early game lineup came out from compLexity Gaming as they obviously want to secure their lanes plus the early push by bringing in Zfreek‘s Riki and swindlemelonzz‘s Beastmaster, Escape on the other hand, is looking to shutdown the sustain from coL employing the burst damage from qoqjva‘s Queen of Pain and Synderen with the Ancient Apparition. The early phase was easily secured by coL, as a Limpp scores a kill on Yapzor which quickly transitioned into a Tier 1 bottom tower push. While the net graph charts were kept pretty even during the first 10 minutes of the game and Escape securing 2 Tier 1s of their own in exchange for their Tier 1 at mid compLexity‘s mid-game spike reared its ugly head as both Chessie and Limmp score very important kills and secure their mid-game items. compLexity started bulldozing down tower after tower as Escape helplessly scrambles their defenses, hoping to prevent the North American advance. Although qoqjva has managed to secure an Orchid Malevolence and the Sheepstick, compLexity‘s mobility and sustain capabilities were still too much to handle for Escape and the Europeans will be forced to call out the GG after the 41 minute throwdown.

Battle Log

A reverse situation when it comes to lineup is the case of Game 2 between coL and Escape as the latter opens up their draft with a Lone Druid and Juggernaut pickup for qoqjva and Era, while topping off the sustain with Synderen’s Dazzle. A tanky frontline will be the deal for coL in hopes to stand through the push with Limpp on the Timbersaw and Chessie handling the carry Sven. Multiple exchanges from both sides happened throughout the map in the early stages, with much of the participation coming from Handsken, Chessie, Era and Khezu who seem to always find themselves in a killed or be killed situation. While going for a sustained push, the first Tier 1 for Escape will not arrive after 13 minutes as they exchange their Tier 1 bottom for coL‘s Tier 1 Mid. The lead was slowly building up in favor of Escape from then on as they secure Tier 1 after Tier 1, although not without sacrificing some of their own heroes in the process. As compLexity tries to fight back with Limpp‘s Timbersaw at front Escape still finds the results in their favor, netting kill after kill and securing tower after tower, slowly snatching the map control from compLexity. While coL still managed to stall the game in hopes to get their groove back together a very farmed up Escape marched into their Tier 3s at mid which resulted in extended fights and Era scoring a Rampage before finally conceding Game 2 after losing all of their Barracks.

Battle Log

Finding their groove in the sustained push Escape once again put the strategy to the test in the tiebreaker game bringing in the Beastmaster for KheZu with the burst of qoqjva‘s Queen of Pain, compLexity on the other hand will opt for a dual heavy core lineup of the Chessie Weaver and Limpp‘s Juggernaut with Handsken on the Dazzle to counter out the sudden death burst. The laning phase seeemed as if it’s working towards compLexity‘s favor as they secure the early kills Era and KheZu, hoping to prevent both heroes mid-game presence. Escape will quickly react to this attempt however with the rotations from qoqjva and Yapzor retaking the lead and enabling the Queen of Pain to score a triple kill against coL‘s heroes. A tower exchange followed up by a teamfight ended in compLexity‘s favor as the North Americans managed to secure the game’s first Aegis which they then used to take down Escape‘s outer towers at Mid, Bottom and Top lane. While coL is starting to build up towards the end-game, with Limpp finally finishing his Manta Style, Escape held on until KheZu secures the Blink Dagger on the Beastmaster and proceeded to retake the game, with qoqjva on the lead. Even with coL almost pushing Escape to the ropes, the game never really went into their favor when the graphs are checked, a factor that Complexity may have failed to anticipate. A back and forth exchange happened thereafter as the game leans toward the late phase, and compLexity almost had the win after destroying Escape‘s middle lane barracks, however, coL overwelcomed their stay and qoqjva, Yapzor and KheZu managed to score a very fatal wipeout which then lead to 2 melee barracks and one ranged barracks destroyed in their favor. compLexity was not given any chance to rethink their mistake from that point forward and Escape gaming will proceed to score another rampage, this time from qoqjva, before ending the game and proceeding to round 2.
