UPDATE 00:20 CEST – Ninjas in Pyjamas defeated Burden United in a very heavy onesided second game that lasted only 26 minutes long. With the victory Burden United has been eliminated and NiP will face Virtus.Pro tomorrow.
UPDATE 23:25 CEST – Ninjas in Pyjamas were able to claim the first game of the series vs Burden United. The game started fairly even with Burden having a slight advantage for most of the game. NiP was able to turn the game, even though their lineup was geared more towards an early game, which was not as strong as it needed to be.
UPDATE 22:50 CEST – Burden United versus Ninjas in Pyjamas best-of-three series is now underway. The winning team will advance and face Virtus.Pro tomorrow, while the losing one will be eliminated from the competition.
UPDATE 22:04 CEST – Ninjas in Pyjamas swept through Basically Unknown 2:0, eliminating them from the tournament and advancing to face Burden United next. Despite some very good rotations and individual pick offs by Basically Unknown, a team wipe at minute 20 would start to give NiP the momentum and advantage they needed to win the game. The Io-BristleBack combo was too much for Unknown‘s lineup.
UPDATE 20:41 CEST – Ninjas in Pyjamas were able to secure the first win of the best of three series verses Basically Unknown. Although the game was mostly one sided for NiP, Nikos “ReaLaxXx” Kiazolis’ Brood Mother was able to stall the game out for just under 60 minutes to give Basically Unknown a chance and time to try to turn the game. Unfortunately for them, it wasn’t enough and they dropped the first game.
UPDATE 19:28 CEST – Basically Unknown versus Ninjas in Pyjamas (Bo3) is now live. The winning team will face Burden United later tonight, while the losing one will be eliminated from the competition.

UPDATE 19:00 CEST – Na’Vi swept through Burden United 2:0 in the series after a strong second game by Alexander “XBOCT” Dashkevich. Although the game started relatively even with back and forth exchanges, Burden United had a few favorable fights that seemed to give them a slight advantage. However, Na’Vi were able to grab control of the game a bit later. A four-for-one fight in Na’Vi’s favor allowed them to break high ground. Burden United didn’t manage to repel the Ukrainian. The game was over after 33 minutes. Na’Vi’s next game is scheduled for tomorrow, while Burden United will face the winner of NiP vs. Basically Unknown later tonight.
UPDATE 18:00 CEST – Na’Vi took the first win versus Burden United in a quick 28 minute game. Na’Vi seemed to maintain control and patience this game instead of rushing and diving – a normal play-style for them, and it seems to have paid off. 20 minutes into the game, a four-man Vacuum into Wall of Replica by Gleb “Funn1k” Lipatnikov, followed by a Winter’s Curse coming out from SoNNeikO, was too much for Burden United continue to defend and Na’Vi took down the barracks. Next up, after analysts’ desk, second game of the best-of-three series
UPDATE 16:55 CEST – Na’Vi defeated NiP in the best-of-one series by dominating and controlling the game from the very beginning. Akbar “SoNNeikO” Butaev had some great clutch ultis in the game and Daniil “Dendi” Ishutin had a great game on Shadow Fiend with 13-2-12. Both supports on Na’Vi had only 5K less gold than the highest gold hero on NiP, the Juggernaut played by Adrian “Era” Kryeziu. Na’Vi will face Burden United next. Later today, NiP will face Basically Unknown.
UPDATE 15:19 CEST – Coming up next, after analysts’ desk, Ninjas in Pyjamas and Natus Vincere will face each other in a best-of-one series.
UPDATE 15:10 CEST – Burden United give us the first win of the day. Between a very farmed Anti-Mage, who was able to split push, and Keeper of the Light repelling advances and pushes from Basically Unknown, Burden United was able to take the first game in the playoffs and advance to the Upper Brackets, where they will face the winner between NiP and Na’Vi. Basically Unknown will drop to the Lower Brackets.
Our win means we're top 5 at @DHDreamLeague! We face the winner of NIP/Na'Vi next! Should be around 1 hour.
