A persistent thorn in the boys’ side, Dig were the feared team; more than any Korean outfit and more than any other challenging team. On paper we trumped them, sure, but they have proved themselves a problem for so many times already. Captain, Quackniix even said they were the team he would have most liked to avoid. It was as though it was simply written to happen.
After easing through the group stage and running over Chinese opposition eStar, we came up against Dignitas for the first time in the Winners Bracket final. A very close encounter indeed, we never felt safe despite pulling out sizeable leads. Bagging 9 kills before Dig had put chalk on the board, game 4 of the series looked like it would be our match point. If you give their roster an inch though, they will seize a mile and punish you. With their bottom lane decimated, Dignitas clawed their way back in with an ace and swiftly burning down our core.
Tilt doesn’t affect our boys though. They’ve been in these close encounters before and know how to compose themselves. It took just over 6 minutes in that final game to burn the opposing core down to 1 percent, only for it to survive, a mere auto attack away from destruction! The team didn’t panic though and edged their way back into the base, setting up their place in the Grand Final.
