DTDV Winter 2022 – Playoff 2, so far VGM has not been able to win against SGP in a BO7 pair.
The match is considered to be the early final of the 2022 Winter DTDV, will VGM break it to be able to overcome SGP in a BO7 play-off?
Game 1 saw ecstasy in every lane of SGP, even Maris was easily solo-killed by Fish in Mid lane. But SGP knows that VGM is an extremely experienced and difficult team. Slowly take back buildings and big targets in the jungle, wait until the game has passed 20 minutes before SGP starts turning the money advantage into a win in game 1.
A game with a scenario quite similar to the previous game. Still SGP with huge advantages in the early game. The only difference is that SGP confidently ended the game earlier instead of prolonging it like game 1. Winning the 2nd game in a row for SGP.
Today was definitely one of Maris’ best days of the season. However, just good Maris was not enough to help SGP continue to win in the 3rd game. VGM promptly woke up and regained his spirit by shortening the score to 1-2.
SGP has no longer kept the habit of having an early advantage over VGM. Continuous macro situations on the basis of VGM, they know how the opponent moves and from there exploit for themselves two tyrant Ceasars. But SGP also shows that they are a team that is not inferior. It wasn’t until the 25th minute that VGM flooded into the Mid lane with the tyrant Ceasar, taking down 4 members of SGP and equalizing the score 2-2 in this BO7 pair.
SGP was released to Yorn but VGM was completely prepared for that scenario. VGM doesn’t need to try too hard to eat too many kills of the opponent, they focus on getting Ceasar to be able to exploit as many enemy turrets as possible. A stray phase of BirdLB in the 16th minute opened the door for a better opportunity for SGP to push the win with the advantage. Making full use of that opportunity, SGP finally succeeded in winning the 5th game.
SGP had the advantage of kills in the early game, but in the middle of the game everything was pulled back to balance by VGM. And then only one evil god Caesar was released in the mid lane, VGM took advantage of that and got himself a very important game, equalizing the score 3-3.
VGM’s Mganga – Helen doesn’t take advantage of her own discomfort to rob the enemy jungle. SGP plays very slowly and with it precious kills fall into their hands. It was the decisive game, so both teams played very carefully and closely. In the 13th minute, Quang Hai was about to rush in to do something but was evaporated too quickly, SGP bounced off and took 3 consecutive kills before winning VGM with the final score 4-3.
