Entity beat Alliance at The International 2022: Western Europe Qualifier

The Entity team beat Alliance within The International 2022: Western Europe Qualifier, the meeting ended with a score of 2:0. Despite a dry score, on the second map, Alliance had a great chance to equalize. The next opponent for Entity will be Team Secret, who beat Into The Breach with a score of 2:1. As for the Alliance team, they fall into the lower bracket, where they will meet with Team Bald Reborn.

Unusual drafts were waiting for us on the first confrontation map, the Alliance team decided to play with Dragon Kinght as a carry, this idea could not be realized at all. Closer to the mid-game, the advantage in gold flowed smoothly to Entity, and the chances of Alliance disappeared every minute. At the 28th minute, we saw a good fight with the taken Roshan for Alliance, but even that didn't put them ahead. When it came to the late game, Alliance had no weapons against Shadow Fiend and admitted defeat on the opening map in these qualifiers.

On the second map, Alliance had a very good chance to even the score in the series. Entity had an interesting and greedy draft with Alchemist and Tinker in the same pick, and while Alchemist did well, Tinker was in trouble. At the 26th minute, Alliance had about 7k gold advantage, which is a very good indicator against Alchemist, but even this advantage they could not use. w33 and Nikobaby made positional mistakes, and sometimes the carry Slark would not come out of the stun to press his ult. Entity were able to prove that they are much stronger than their opponents and know how to get out of not the most pleasant situations.
