Yesterday, the 3rd day of WePlay! Mad Moon playoffs has concluded. We have had the first grand finalist as Team Secret swept Virtus.pro. Then we have the ex-Liquid players playing under the new banner of Nigma who made their way of 2 victories in the lower bracket semi-finals against Virtus Pro for the last chance to stay alive and play in the finale of the tournament.
Firstly, Nigma was put against Lil’s stack Aggressive Mode and in the very first game, they managed to win very convincingly. Dominating all 3 lanes early on by 20 minutes they we’re at 10K gold advantage but the real game decider was kills keep coming from Nigma and they had a lot of pushing capability of going for throne after they took down a lane of barracks. Game ended just 22 minutes ingame. That’s when Nigma felt too confident and decided to play the 2nd game just for fun after they drafted w33 Skywrath in Offlane, GH jungle, KuroKy mid and MC Omiknight and Miracle in the carry lane but playing as Shadow Shaman. Much like the first game only reversed, Aggressive Mode managed to snatch a win after ending the game 26 minutes in.
In the post-match discussion, Kyle felt obligated to ask those questions to Nigma on Stream:
“You come here to the last tournament your team is going to play, for a month and a half, and you put W33 offlane, GH jungle, Kuroky on a Core mid and Miracle on a hard support. What is this? How arrogant do you have to be? This is disrespectful to your opponent, (and) to your brand.
You are representing your own organisation. Do you want to get sponsored? This is how you think you are going to get it? Is there a circus in town? Do you think they need more clowns? It is ridiculous."
Nevertheless, Nigma played the 3rd match seriously which resulted in their victory of the series as they proceeded in the next round against Gambit which they also won 2-0.
