Group Nigma and Team Liquid on Thursday swept their particular first-round matches in the lower bracket of the $145,000 BLAST Bounty Hunt Dota 2 online occasion. Team Nigma dispatched Ninjas in Pyjamas after tape-recording wins in 39 and 36 minutes, respectively.

Team Liquid removed Alliance following success in 31 and 40 minutes, respectively. The two Thursday winners will take on Friday for an area in Saturday’s lower-bracket final. The Friday loser in between Group Secret and OG will play in the lower-bracket final the following day.

The playoffs-only event features 6 groups, all of whom were invited, with Secret and OG getting byes to the upper-bracket semifinals. All matches are best-of-three up until Saturday’s best-of-five grand final. Instead of reward cash based on ending up position, each group began with an active money swimming pool: $20,000 each for Secret and OG and $15,000 for the other four teams. Each match winner takes 40 percent of its opponent’s active money pool, meaning OG and Secret each declared $8,400 from their opponents on Wednesday.

There is also $45,000 available through bounty hunt, with rewards granted for numerous accomplishments. Nigma won $5,000 Tuesday for keeping one employee alive for the duration of a game, while Alliance won $5,000 on Tuesday for not enabling Ninjas in Pyjamas to gain control of their station for a whole video game. Still readily available are a $20,000 reward for eliminating a single enemy player 20 times in one video game, and a $15,000 reward for killing a minimum of nine of the opponent’s carriers in a game.
