GCDL Round 1
GOBBAYAS vs. RR|.
Match Review

Gobbayas won the toss and picked first.

Bans: Troll Warlord, Omniknight, Tidehunter, Treant Protector, Magnataur, Nerubian Assassin, Moon Rider and Beastmaster.

Another GCDL Round 1 match has been concluded - GOBBAYAS vs. Reigning Repulsion. It was a close match, but RR eventually gained a slight advantage, and from then on, the match was theirs. They won the match 40 kills to 21.

Heroes
RR|. :
RR|. Eye             : Earthshaker
RR|. SlayeR        : Demon Witch
RR|. DooM          : Lightning Revenant
RR|. PhoBIA        : Juggernaut
RR|. Red_ACES   : Lich

GOBBAYAS:
GOBBAYAKA        : Dragon Knight
GOBBALOLLA       : Bounty Hunter
GOBBABLACKY     : Venomancer
GAOBBAPOSHEM  : Viper
GOBBANAYA         : Gorgon

Laning

Top/Left lane:
RR|.Eye (Earthshaker) + RR|.SlayeR (Demon Witch)
vs
GOBBAPOSHEM (Viper) + GOBBALOLLA (Bounty Hunter)

Mid lane:
RR|.DooM (Razor)
vs
GOBBANAYA (Gorgon)

Bottom/Right lane:
RR|.Red_ACES (Lich) + RR|.RR|.PhoBIA (Juggernaut)
vs
GOBBAYAKKA (Dragon knight) + GOBBABLACKY (Venomancer)


First Blood (4.40):
Juggernaut, upon reaching level 3 (and upgrading to level 2 blade fury), decides to attack. Seeing his aproach and undoubtably realizing his intentions, Dragon knight and venomancer begin to retreat. However, a well timed frost nova from lich prevents venomancer from escaping, and he quickly succumbs to the seemingly never ending blade fury.



However, GOBBAYAS managed to equalize and then capture the lead. The next few battles involved multiple heroes and usually lead to the death of heroes on both sides. Due to this, the scores were never far from level.

Both teams played conservatively, not wanting to lose the lead. Thus the first 10 minutes saw only 2 kills. RR were so reluctant to give away kills that Lich denied his teammate, juggernaut, at one point.

RR made good use of wards. They used them both to see Bounty hunter as well as to observe the middle rivr. This proved to be quite useful.

GOBBAYAS also played very well. They played with a solid defence, not succumbing to early game heroes like juggernaut, lich and lion. In some cases they even teleported to attempt to save allies from ganks.

Then, things started to speed up at the 20 minute mark. Both GOBBANAYA and PhoBIA  reached killing spree status within the 20th minute. The 21st minute saw GOBBANAYA take the first double kill on the match to extend his status to mega kill.

Then, with things still looking like a stalemate, RR|. decided to change tactics. They commited four (and later the fifth) heroes to the middle path to push. This must have caught the GOBBAYAS off guard because they managed to kill 4 of the 5 GOBBAYAS in the ensuring battle. It was after this that the pendulum seemed to swing in RR's favor.



The image shows 3 of the GOBBAYAS being killed.

There was no clearly visible advantage though. Even though RR kept a slight lead in kills, GOBBAYAS scored at regular intervals.

The match definitely did not lack highlights. One of the most important points of the game, the moment at which the GOBBAYAS base was first breached (mid path), was also one of the most exciting points. The determination of RR to bring the tower down collided with the GOBBAYAS' determination to defend it. The ensuring 5v5 battle lasted for what seemed like forever, and saw 8 deaths (5 GOBBAYAS and 3 RRs).









The above 4 pictures squeeze in all the details..

Juggernauts triple kill was the only one of the match. He went on to make a 11 kill beyond godlike streak.

After breaking the mid tower and barracks, RR played spontaneously and aggressively. They did die a few times due to this, but they gained 13 kills in a span of 10 minutes before ending the game.




Congrats to team RR. Well played both teams.

Huh? Someone fixed the undersized pic bug? TY dsrt eagle! Hehe... I figured it out in school and came ASAP to fix it. And yes, I did link it to the thumbnail rofl xD... I was sooo sleepy. I fell asleep 4 times writing it. Thats why it was put up at 2.00 in the morning.

Sadly, Im not the one who's supposed to write your matches review. :( ... I guess if another eSports coverage team member doesnt put one up by the time I get home, I might decide to do it out of goodwill.

Anyways, if theres no fear vs WDF review up when I get home, I'll start on it. Right now Im at a friends house and he has a french keyboard which is a pain in the a$$... If the keys were blank, i could touch type... But here the letter marked is wrong. Arrrrgh.

Thank you man... Thats what happens when I stay up late writing reviews after a long day. Like I said I fell asleep a few times while writing it :D. Thankfully there arent too many mistakes. Its also why I didnt write the fear vs WDF review.. (and btw, the review is on the way).

Sorry, but your request is a bit too late... I just wrote what I saw in the replay. And yeah, your centaur was very impressive.
