The picks were almost expected except Riki by RNG.
RNG had a 56% draft advantage in which their strengths were split pushing, right click damage, defending, pushing and counter picks. Geek Fam had good advantage in durability and disables.

Geek Fam had a great start while securing 3k gold lead at the 11th minute mark.
Geek Fam controlled the map and found some kills whenever possible. On the 31st minute mark, the game changed as Geek Fam lost 4k gold lead after a bad gank.
After that victory, RNG slowly balanced the lead and Geek Fam tried to secure some objectives but failed. RNG played aggressively & gained 10k lead. But at the 57th minute they took a bad fight & lost the game because of that.
At the 57th minute mark, Riki and Ember Spirit didn’t have buyback whereas none of the Geek Fam heroes had buyback. Roshan was up and the entire game’s victory depended on it. Both teams went near the Roshan pit and Shadow Shaman caught Puck. Ember Spirit jumped forward to kill Puck but used all the 4 remnants. This was either a misclick or a very bad move because throwing away all remnants took away his own chance to escape. This was when RNG couldn’t help him easily as he was too far and when they reached, they were so late and couldn’t even save themselves. At this moment they just lost the game
