The match between Ehome and Escape gaming was a slow pace game. Escape gaming were not able to hold against Iceiceice’s naga siren in the later stages of the game. Game 2 concluded with an Anti-Mage pick which is merely regarded as a strong counter to int hero’s such as Storm Spirit, at min 30 iceiceice’s Anti-Mage was almost unkillable and it lead to Ehome’s victory and secured them a slot at the International 6.
Ehome will be taking the Slot of Group B which will include the team which they lost to in the regional qualifiers i.e VG.Reborn.
Escape Gaming still have one last chance to qualify by beating Execration in the lower bracket.
