TI1 champions, Natus Vincere (Na’Vi), faced off against Infamous on the second day of TI9’s Group Stage.
Na’Vi looked strong early on, with Evgeniy “Blizzy” Ree’s Elder Titan pulling off this five-man Echo Stomp.
However, underdogs, Infamous Gaming, were able to hold up for an impressive 63 minutes against Na’Vi’s early game and mid-game advantage.
With the Na’Vi Ancient exposed already, Infamous’ Hector “K1” Antonio Rodriguez’s Lifestealer and Jean “ChrisLuck” Pierre Gonzales’s Slark piled on the damage to take game one.
In game two, both teams focused on pushing lanes to get Mega Creeps.
In exchange for the mega creeps for the Dire side, Na’Vi destroyed Infamous’ Ancient with a lot of help from Vladislav “Crystallize” Krystanek’s Alchemist, taking game two and splitting the series.
