2017 Vainglory World Championships Day 3 Recap
Cloud9 Vs Tribe: 1-3
The day kicked off with Cloud9 going against Tribe. It was bound to be an interesting match up. Tthe teams had won 3-0 against their opponents the previous day. The first game saw Cloud9 picking Adagio, Vox and Fortress against Tribe’s Rona, Ardan and Blackfeather. Tribe outplayed Cloud9 and won the match.
The second match saw Cloud9 pick Vox, Ardan and Blackfeather against Tribe’s Grace, Rona and Koshka. Cloud9 struggled most of the game, as Tribe’s pick was superior for early to mid games. After losing team fights, Cloud9 decided to take advantage of their draft and extend the match into the late game. This strategy worked, since Cloud9 won the match.
In the next two matches, Tribe completely outdrafted Cloud9. In game 3 Cloud9 played their Rona, Fortress and Koshka picks against Tribe’s Skye, Ardan and Baptiste and in the next game C9 played Baptiste, Lyra and Vox against Tribe’s Koshka, Grace and Adiago. Tribe won both the matches, winning 3-1 against Cloud9.
