The Summit 5 LAN Day 2 has come to an end with another round of high caliber Dota 2. Team Liquid and Wings continued to prove their worth of the hype surrounding them – both outplaying and overpowering their first opponents of the day – Na’Vi and Ad Finem 2:1.
Zhou “bLink” Yang and Chu “Shadow” Zeyu continue to steal the spotlight in Wings with their incredible talent and consistent performances.
Na’Vi provided some compelling matches to viewers, putting up a valiant fight against the Chinese new stars. Taking the first series, they then put up an hour long battle in the second match before succumbing to Wings.
Ad Finem’s upset over Team Liquid in the first match served to be a shot of adrenaline and hype going into the rest of the series. Although Team Liquid overpowered the Greek squad in the next two rounds – Ad Finem had once again created a stir surrounding their name and bringing forward some exciting matches.
The action resumes with the first teams to be eliminated. FDL will go head to head with Digital Chaos while Na’Vi will face Ad Finem.
