In Game 1, MinD_ContRoL played Beastmaster starting in the Radiant jungle. Although picking a jungle hero like Beastmaster is risking a lot, MinD_ContRoL and Liquid made the greedy strategy work for them. He was able to secure a quick Necronomicon level three, as well as getting his level six and Primal Roar. MinD_ContRoL dealt 3,800 damage to NewBee's heroes, and 3,800 to their structures. He only secured one tower last hit for his team, but was critical in helping to bring them down. MinD_ContRoL finished with a 1/2/12 KDA. Liquid won Game 1. In Game 2, MinD_ContRoL played Nature's Prophet in the Radiant top off lane. Although he did well in lane, securing a nice gold and experience start for himself, MinD_ContRoL struggled greatly in Game 2. Liquid were unable to find the kills they needed with their Io plus Nature's Prophet global presence, and quickly fell behind. Despite dealing the most hero damage on his team at 7,600, MinD_ContRoL was unable to secure a single kill for himself. He finished the game with a 0/5/6 KDA, at least participating in six of Liquid's kills. Liquid lost Game 2. In Game 3, MinD_ContRoL played Lifestealer in the Radiant top off lane. He had a difficult early lane, dying once to a rotation from Kaka's Beastmaster. He also was unable to freely get gold and experience in his lane thanks to ChauN's Lion. After this poor start, MinD_ContRoL wasn't able to have much impact in the game. He was only able to deal 4,800 damage to NewBee's heroes, and finished Game 3 with a poor 1/5/3 KDA. Liquid lost Game 3. In Game 4, MinD_ContRoL played Slardar in the Radiant top off lane. He had an excellent early game, securing two kills in the early game, including first blood on Mu's Invoker. MinD_ContRoL continued to play well in his lane, getting a lot of gold and experience out of a difficult lane versus Hao's Clinkz. He finished a Blink Dagger by 12 minutes, and from there was an extremely effective tempo controller and team fight initiator. MinD_ContRoL dealt 5,900 damage to NewBee, not only landing multiple hero Slithereen Crushes but also getting space to auto attack in fights as well. MinD_ContRoL finished Game 4 with a 7/2/11 KDA. Liquid won Game 4. In Game 5, MinD_ContRoL played Beastmaster in the Radiant top off lane. He died twice early, but managed to get a lot of gold and experience out of his lane again. MinD_ContRoL had 70 last hits by 10 minutes, extremely above average for an off lane player. He used this to be an effective fight controller with Primal Roar and his Necronomicon level three summons. MinD_ContRoL was able to deal 7,100 damage to NewBee. He finished Game 5 with a 4/4/10 KDA. Liquid won Game 5.
