A traditional MATUMBAMAN performance has Group Trick in the top 3 at the Dota 2 WePlay! Pushka League after downing Group Liquid in a 2-0 sweep.

With this win, Secret took vengeance on the only team to beat them in the group stage and continued the pattern of playoff sweeps regardless of a close game 2.

Not just did Matu have 2 unbelievable games, including some really clutch plays in game two, but Puppey managed an amazing drafting method developed around Bounty Hunter and Bane. His objective was to let Liquid take their comfort heroes and utilize their own draft to offset the fast farming and develops iNSaNiA and his group like to focus on.

In this instance, it was the mix of Keeper of the Light, Bristleback, and Tusk with a turning core that was rendered mostly useless. Outside of qojqva’s Queen of Discomfort in game two, there was not a single hero that made a substantial dent into Secret’s gameplan.

Puppey supplied bait for Liquid in the form of his Bane throughout video game one and zai’s Bounty Hunter in game 2, seemingly quiting a benefit before turning around and crushing throughout teamfights.

Matu was the standout gamer in both games and acted as the driver pushing forward throughout battles while the other heroes used their assistance. Both he and Nisha enhanced the rest of Trick’s draft perfectly and the set led Secret to yet another triumph with the sustainability that their itemization focused on in game 2.

Here are Matu’s stats for both video games, which were only ever closely matched by Nisha throughout the entire series.

Secret are now ensured a top-three surface for Pushka League, maintaining their dominant image and heading into the upper bracket finals matchup with VP.Prodigy as significant favorites. Considering that bringing on Matu, Trick’s least expensive placement at an event is fourth location and they have some of the very best total results of any team this season.
