Dota 2: Takeaways from Day 3 of WePlay!’s Pushka League Season 1

Here are some of the more interesting things from Day Three of the Pushka League.

After the COVID-19 pandemic took over the world and the Dota 2 Pro Circuit was put on a hold, all tournaments are now online. So, just a few days after we watched ESL One LA, another interesting event started.

WePlay!’s Pushka League Season 1 is an online tournament that brings together some of the best European and CIS teams. Fourteen teams in total (seven per region) will be playing for a $250K USD prize pool. However, unlike other tournaments, this league will last around two weeks. It started on the 23rd of April and it will finish on the 12th of May.

With that out of the way, here is what happened in Day Three of this exciting league.

Nigma couldn’t win against their ex organization

Even though people expected Kuro “KuroKy” Salehi Takhasomi and his team-mates to win against Team Liquid, this didn’t happen. Instead, the ex-Alliance roster proved that they shouldn’t be taken lightly. After an epic three-game series, they were the ones that delivered their knock-out punch.

The first two games of the series were one-sided, as both teams dominated against the other. Nevertheless, it was just a warmup for what was to come in game three. The final game of the series was a back-and-forth brawl, but in the end, Liquid was victorious.

Virtus.Pro is the best CIS team

In the second series of the day, VP had to go up against FlyToMoon. As expected, the CIS powerhouse was able to deal with their enemies, however, it wasn’t as easy as everyone thought it would be. In fact, VP even lost the second game after a series of mistakes from their side.

Despite that, VP picked some of their best heroes for the third game and this definitely had an impact on them. Their win proved they're truly among the best.

Team Secret is a serious threat

The last series of the day was between OG.Seed and Team Secret, and needless to say, Clement “Puppey” Ivanov’s team had no problems whatsoever. Sure, OG.Seed had their moments, but the team just needs more practice and experience before they can go toe to toe with one of the best teams in the world.
