Ukraine Na`Vi looked sharp, ready and hungry to get through to another round. ArtStyle in both games went for aggressive drafts based around Templar Assassin Templar Assassin for DendiTusk Tusk for SoNNeikO and QoP Queen of Pain which rotated between carry and offlane role. With that, the Ukrainian squad was able to dominate the laning phase and snowball from there thanks to their mobility and incredible burst that Dendi provided with his TA, which was on top of the net worth the whole match. 
STARK , on the other hand, opted for Alchemist Alchemist mid and Gyro Gyro safelane in both games. However, Alch wasn’t able to get up to speed being completely dominated in lane by Dendi . Things didn’t look much better for Gyro either, as well as the rest of STARK in both games as relentless pressure combined with the timely rotations not only shut down their farm but also resulted in kills for the Ukrainian squad.
