BOOM fumbles early games leads, swept by OG in TI11 opener
European Dota 2 team OG sweeps BOOM Esports in the first series of The International 11 group stages. The Southeast Asian Dota 2 team started out strong in both two games, but OG came back strong in both games, closing out the series with a clean 2-0.

Game 1 started out with BOOM Esports easily dominating their lanes. Erin “Yopaj” Ferrer’s Primal Beast easily pulverized Bozhidar “Bzm” Bogdanov’s Ember Spirit in the mid lane early on. BOOM Esports snowballed hard into the mid-game, with Yopaj’s rotations forcing OG to respond and give up early objectives. But things turned around after OG won a team fight thanks to a now-farmed Terrorblade by Artem “Yuragi” Golubiev. The team manages to turn the tides in their favor, and take an aegis for Yuragi. Both teams clashed right outside BOOM’s base, wiping out most of the SEA team’s cores, leading OG to take the win.

BOOM takes Terrorblade for themselves in the second game, running a scaling composition. Game 2 told the same story in the beginning, with BOOM snowballing through kills and OG trailing behind. The SEA team controlled the map, with multiple vision wards placed in crucial and potential smoke spots. But like the first game, OG managed to play from behind, masterfully. Team fight after team fight went in OG’s favor, increasing the EU team’s gold lead to a whopping 20,000.
As of the time of the result, BOOM stands in the 8th spot of Group A, sharing the spot with North American team Soniqs. Meanwhile, OG is enjoying the 1st spot with two other teams— NA team Evil Geniuses and EU team Gaimin Gladiators.
