With PSG.LGD winning their first series back yesterday, it was time to
see if EHOME could match that, as they would have their first series as a new
roster at the China Dota2 Pro Cup Season 1 against Phoenix Gaming.
EHOME’s new Dota 2 roster featured a lot of well-known
names, such as Song “Sccc” Chun and Jian Wei “xNova” Yap, amongst others – as the
new roster went into their first series after the shuffle. With PSG.LGD being
victorious yesterday on their return, EHOME would be hoping to match that with what
seemed like a rather easy opponent at the China Dota2 Pro Cup. Phoenix Gaming
are a completely unknown team which progressed through open qualifiers, and for
them, playing against some of the best players in the region would be no easy
task. However, with the other open qualifier team of LBZS taking down Invictus
Gaming just yesterday, Phoenix would have some hope.
This glimmer of hope is what seemed to clearly fuel
the Phoenix Gaming lineup in their difficult series, which they made look like
a walk in the park. The team never once let EHOME find their footing as they
ripped through the seasoned veterans in only two games, both of which ended in just
over half an hour. For EHOME, although a new squad, they would need to
significantly up their game before their next series against Vici Gaming in two
days. Phoenix would also be getting a day’s break at the event before they come
back to face Team MagMa, and possibly stamp their mark as a new team to look
out for in the China region.
The China Dota2 Pro Cup still has one more series for
today – at the time of writing, VG would be playing their first series back against
the latest Royal Never Give Up roster. It will be interesting to see just what all
the Chinese roster shuffle changes do to these teams and who can possibly come
out on top once we move beyond regional events.
