In the laning phase, Newbee definitely had the advantage because Timbersaw was too strong to sustain any core from EHOME.

However, the game started to favor on EHOME once Legion Commander had his Blink Dagger, Lifestealer always Infest (His ultimate skill) into Legion Commander with smoke of deceit (SOD).

With the Aura defensive item Dark Seer from EHOME purchased, Legion Commander barely lost the duel. EHOME won the game thanks to their good strategy of ganking and decision of SOD.

In game two, Newbee drafted Rubick to take mid lane, that was a good choice because this hero buffed in this patch, lingering longer debuff effect up to 44% when his Arcane Supremacy is at level four.

However, ASD, the position 2 player from EHOME played Lina in that game, with his amazing last hit and farming skill in early phase of the game. Sccc was zoned out of mid lane before 10-minute mark.

EHOME displayed their game play and fast decision making in the game very nicely, no matter in laning phase or decision of roaming/ganking on enemies also the reasons lead them towards the victory.
