Alliance performance recap in tour 1

Alliance have been struggling in the trenches for quite some time, jumping between Division I and II. Their latest squad iteration came close to getting back to Division I. Unfortunately, Monaspa pulled the rug from under their feet by beating them in a best-of-one tiebreaker--the match that determined the last promotion spot to Division I. Despite failing to return to Division I, Alliance seems to believe in their current squad, making no changes to it for Tour 2.

Team Secret performance recap in tour 1

In tour 1, Team Secret went through one of their worst DPC performances in their history, which came at a complete surprise after their second place finish at The International 2022 (TI11). Losing their last series to Nigma Galaxy was the last nail in the coffin that placed them dead last with a 3-12 score line. As a result, Team Secret dropped to Division II for the very first time in the organization's Dota history. Unsurprisingly, they have made a number of changes to their squad for Tour 2.

  • Remco "Crystallis" Arets
  • Armel "Armel" Tabios
  • Miroslav "BOOM" Bičan
  • Daniyal "yamich" Lazebnyy
  • Clement "Puppey" Ivanov

Series breakdown: Draft, KDA, net worth, and more

Game one: Team Secret victory

The series opened with a wild and lengthy spectacle that dragged until 65 minutes. The drafts look strong for Secret, with an odd Elder Titan on Puppey. On the other hand, Alliance's draft has a scary teamfight potential with tons of AoE spells and an unconventional Abaddon carry on charlie.

The first game unfolded in favor of Team Secret, with the team racking up a net worth lead from the very start. Crystallis and Yamich absolutely bodied their lane, which in turn sees a poor Doom on s4. But what seemed like an easy win for Secret, quickly turned around as Alliance pulled off great defenses.

From then on, Alliance kept on winning fight after fight and they slowly took the advantage. Charlie's Abaddon was insanely farmed and Alliance managed to take four racks before Secret could even knock on their base. However, a fight saw Alliance committing all their buybacks and Secret knew they had to charge before their cooldowns are up. The final fight was initially a win for Alliance, but because Secret had all the buybacks, they prevailed.

Game two: Team Secret victory

The second game saw Crystallis grab the carry Abaddon for himself and he is accompanied by the fearsome Broodmother on Boom. Alliance opted to pick a carry Terrorblade on charlie alongside a Tiny for Chyuan on the midlane.

The game was seemingly a 50-50 contest, however, Team Secret always came out on top of fights. They took advantage of the lead to gradually close the game without any hiccups. Alliance raised the white flag at minute 39 after losing a fight in their base.
