Although both teams did not draft very well in the two games they played, Pavaga Gaming was still better because Kaipi drafted a lot of buffed heroes but there were no combos from the draft.
Kaipi picked Brewmaster in game 1 however there was no fire element heroes to utilize the damage dealt to enemies.
In game 2, Kaipi drafted a lot of tier 3 heroes of this patch, such as Weaver and Mirana as their cores.
Kaipi’s bad draft was definitely one of reason that causes them the game.
Pavaga Gaming’s draft gotten better when they faced off against Team Spirit in Grands Finals of MegaFon Championship League Season 1 on 20 November, 2018. They drafted Magnus in game 2 and game 3. Securing Magnus in this latest patch is having a huge advantage because there are a lot of tier 1 and tier 2 melee carries in this meta, preventing enemies to ban out all of your carry heroes.
Anti Mage, Faceless Void, Phantom Assassin, Naga Siren and several melee carries can work well with Magnus thanks to Magnus’s ability- Empower that provides any melee heroes to have 74% cleave damage.
