And Ensidia did it the hard way, after SK Gaming EUROPE took the lead in the first set thanks to the "train a priest" strategy. But Christopher 'KalimisT' Ioannou and co answered back with their own train onto Valent 'another' Sebastijan. This had the added effect of shutting down half of SK's damage and it would be this train priest/train deathknight battle that would be the theme of the day.
In such a game style, control becomes exponentially more important. The fact that SK were forced to play defensive meant that Ryan 'Hydra' van Buiten could play his signature aggressive style and landed some great fears onto SK.
Time and again, Kalimist landed the better opener. But in the final game, with SK down 2-5, both rogues sapped one another. Only Hydra managed to get dispels off onto Simon 'zom' Palmer, however, leaving him buff-less. That could have been crucial as it made Zom so much more vulnerable. But Ensidia played to the old adage, "if it ain't broke don't fix it" and stuck on the deathknight yet again. It paid off after the defensive cooldowns were done, as Another died yet again, giving Ensidia a well-earned victory.
