Summary of the match

The game had started badly for Mandatory. Our game was a bit messy and insecure at the beginning of the game, allowing VMS to lead 4-1. It was at this point that our players started to get their act together and go back up the rounds, even though they were at a numerical disadvantage in terms of players and economy. HoppY and HyP in particular are holding the fort. AKUMAAAAA and Goaster take the first kills, while APO also starts winning 1v2s. In the end, Mandatory wins their Attack round 7-5.

At the side change, VMS tried some inconclusive force-buy which reinforced our advantage. AKUMAAAAA then felt like growing wings and ran into the opposing spells to slaughter his opponents. VMS was never really able to recover against the Mandatory defence. We won the last game of the Super Week with a score of 13-6.
