I was watching both Heroes of the Storm and Smash tournaments on Twitch this weekend, but this series of grand finals games between Tempo Storm and Cloud9 was absolutely entertaining to watch. Tempo Storm has been demonstrating dominance over the competitive scene for the past few months, but apparently Cloud9 brought their A game to this competition. I’m by no means a professional, or even good (I’m new to MOBAs) at this game, but here’s what I could snap in highlight screenshots!
Game 1 (Tempo Storm wins):
Game 2 (Tempo Storm wins):
Game 2 finishes with another incredibly close win. While Tempo Storm lost a critical team fight, Sylvanas peeled off and pushed with the boss they had just captured to see if they could beat out the damage on their own core.
Game 3 (Cloud9 begins their comeback):
Game 3 begins with an unusual draft, followed by a dominating show by Cloud9.
Game 4 (Cloud9 win #2):
Game 5 (Cloud9 win #3):
Game 6 (Cloud9 win #4):
Game 7 (Cloud9 win #5):
Game 8 (Cloud9 grand finals win):
Everyone played really well, although it was somewhat sad to see TS never get their momentum back. The team synergy on C9’s side was unreal today. Everyone looked out for each other and I think that was key in the team fights. A 6-0 comeback. Wow. Just wow. These screenshots don’t do the games justice. I hope ESL_Heroes gets the VODs uploaded on Twitch soon.
