NiP Wins OGA Dota Pit Minor!

Ninjas in Pyjamas (NiP) have secured tickets to Disneyland! The EU side had a remarkable run in the OGA Dota PIT Minor and have qualified to the Paris Major. The team won the competition in some style after a hard-fought 3-2 victory against EHOME in the Grand Finale. They are now in a strong spot for TI9 qualification.

Game 1

The first game of the series was an exciting one. NiP started to dominate the game from the early stages. They won almost every team fight. Yet, EHOME capitalized on the map control and managed to get kills on the core heroes of NIP. The team lacked behind one the kill score but was close in the GPM of the game. EHOME played brilliantly to push the game to late stage. Yet, they were getting ganked by NiP. It took over 50 minutes for EU side to win the first game of the series.

Game 2

NiP had a dominating start to the second game of the series. Their mid laner, Adrian “Fata” Trinks got NiP on the front foot. Yet Nip couldnโ€™t stop Luo “Ferrari_430” Feichiโ€™s Medusa to get EHOME into the game. Medusa is arguably the best carry of the Dota 2 meta at the moment. It had a popular pick rate in the Minor. In the Finale of the Minor, the hero single handed tied the series 1-1.

Game 3

After suffering a tough loss to Medusa in the 2nd game, NiP decided to pick it for Marcus “Ace” Hoelgaard. NiP also picked Puck to combo with the ultimate of the Medusa. It worked out decently for them since they squeezed the victory after 58 minutes of play. They now led the series 2-1 and were just one game away from victory.

Game 4

In possibly their last game of the tournament, EHOME came out all guns blazing. Ferrari and XinQ were unstoppable in the early game. EHOME controlled every single aspect of the game and didnโ€™t let NiP farm the map. EHOME got the victory after 41 minutes. Now the series was leveled 2-2 and the 5th game will decide the faith of the title.

Game 5

NiP started the final game of the series on a high note. The team broke out the infamous Huskar and Drow Ranger combo. Yet EHOME still managed to push the game late with Yang “END” Puโ€™s Spectre. At one moment of the final game, NiP had an over 13,000 gold lead, yet EHOME didnโ€™t give up and pushed the game to the 60-minute mark. However, after getting caught in no manโ€™s land, Spectre was killed off by NiP.

With their core hero down, EHOME was unable to stop drow and from melting their barracks and towers.

At the end of the day, NiP lifted the trophy and took home $125,000. Now they will be aiming to finish strong in the MDL Major to secure a flight to China.
