In Game 1, MATUMBAMAN played Lycan in the Radiant bottom safe lane. Liquid is one of the few teams that still picks Lycan frequently, largely because MATUMBAMAN is very skilled on the hero. His Game 1 performance was another stellar showing. He only died once in the early game, and managed to contribute to both team fights and pushing in lane. MATUMBAMAN dealt 6,400 damage to NewBee's heroes, and 5,500 to their structures. He secured an impressive seven tower last hits for his team, as well as a barrack and a Roshan. MATUMBAMAN finished Game 1 with a 7/1/7 KDA. Liquid won Game 1. In Game 2, MATUMBAMAN played Lone Druid in the Radiant bottom safe lane. He had an excellent lane, securing a five minute Hand of Midas followed by a 16 minute Radiance. Unfortunately for Liquid, this massive lead wasn't enough for them to win convincing fights. MATUMBAMAN's Spirit Bear wasn't able to take down the durable heroes in NewBee's lineup. This left them with only FATA's Bristleback as a source of reliable team fight damage, and this wasn't enough. MATUMBAMAN only dealt 5,500 damage to NewBee's heroes, and 2,000 to their structures. He managed to secure two towers for his team, and finished Game 2 with a 1/4/2 KDA. Liquid lost Game 2. In Game 3, MATUMBAMAN played Lone Druid again in the Radiant bottom safe lane. He had another good lane phase, although his Hand of Midas and Radiance both came a minute later than in Game 2. MATUMBAMAN and Liquid were again unable to secure the convincing early team fights that Lone Druid needs to cement his advantage. MATUMBAMAN was only able to deal 5,200 damage to NewBee in a 32-minute game. More importantly, MATUMBAMAN failed to take a single tower for Liquid, only dealing 661 damage to NewBee's structures. MATUMBAMAN finished with a 1/4/5 KDA. Liquid lost Game 3. In Game 4, MATUMBAMAN played Gyrocopter in the Radiant bottom safe lane. He played much better than games 2 and 3, dying twice early game but then not again for the entire game. MATUMBAMAN dealt a massive 16,200 damage to NewBee in fights. His Call Downs and Flak Cannon dealt massive damage to everyone on NewBee's team, overwhelming them with spread damage in fights. MATUMBAMAN finished Game 4 with an 8/2/11 KDA, in a redemption performance from his past two games. Liquid won Game 4. In Game 5, MATUMBAMAN played Slark in the Radiant bottom safe lane. Despite an early death to kpii's Doom, MATUMBAMAN played an extremely good Game 5. He proved extremely difficult for NewBee to bring down, only dying one more time after his early death. He was also able to deal 9,400 damage to NewBee, moving in and out of fights easily thanks to his Silver's Edge and Pounce, plus Dark Pact. MATUMBAMAN finished Game 5 with a 7/2/14 KDA. Liquid won Game 5.
