Game Recap: Shopify Rebellion destroys BetBoom 2-0

In the first game, Shopify Rebellion drafted beautifully to shut down BetBoom's heroes. A classic Zeus vs Terrorblade sees the Greek hero relentlessly bursting down Terrorblade's HP and immediately putting him out of fights. This hero also worked wonders to shut down the enemy's Rubick, which was on its toes to steal SabeRLight-'s Black Hole.

In the first 10 minutes of the game, BetBoom mercilessly dominated lanes and accumulated kills on the sidelanes. The EEU team had an early 4K net worth lead, but SR was quick to recover.

Abed's Zeus itemized well to burst Pure's Terrorblade as he opted for a quick Refresher Orb. Arteezy went ham on his Bloodseeker as he was more than capable of manfighting a high-networth Terrorblade. After demolishing BetBoom in multiple fights, the all-star EEU team tapped out in 56 minutes.

In the second game, BetBoom once again dominated the laning stage. But SR constantly exploited mistakes on the map to grab kills entering the mid-game. It was a close contest as both teams traded kills and accumulated an almost even net worth throughout the entire game.

Both position 4 on both sides were an extreme menace. Cr1t's Spirit Breaker charges in at the right timings and Save's Rubick executed sleek stolen spells. But as the game unfolded, Saberlight on his Nature's Prophet raked up insane farm and became a massive threat to BetBoom.

At minute 40:20, SR found an out-of-position Pure Sniper and they were able to right-click the hero to death before BB could react. This led to a huge teamfight win and an easy Roshan pickup, leading SR's networth by far. SR grew out of control and after losing another teamfight, the team called GG for the second time of the day.
