Virtus.pro couldn’t stand a chance versus Entity

For Entity in the beginning of 2024, it has been a crazy ride. The dark horse from Western Europe just won the most recent $100,000 tournament, marking its first significant triumph. This winning streak followed Entity’s uninteresting run of losses in a row, during which they were unable to advance to tournaments in early 2024.

Eight teams came together for this battle online. Along with other dark horses like Virtus.pro and PSG Quest, these teams feature formidable squads like Team Spirit and Team Liquid. There is a whopping $100,000 up for grabs in this quick 4-day event. Although many people saw Spirit and Liquid as the favorites to place in the top two, the tournament took an unexpected turn.

Entity chose to play it safe in the opening game, going for their tried-and-true combinations of Brewmaster offlane and Meepo carry. Yet Virtus.pro countered this build with a Gyrocopter carry after seeing Entity’s matchup with Liquid. Even with Virtus.pro’s counterpick, Entity managed to extend the game into the 40-minute mark, but they were eventually overpowered by Gyrocopter’s critical Divine Rapier pick, which left Entity unable to continue dealing out the heavy damage. As a result, the game ended in 44 minutes, with Entity raising the white flag and making plans for the following one. Virtus.pro advanced to the 2nd game of the evening, having remained unbeaten throughout the competition. Virtus.pro, feeling upbeat and with the momentum in its favor, decided to use an Alchemist carry in the hopes of building a significant lead in gold. However, Entity was prepared with a plan that they flawlessly carried out to maintain the advantage until Alimzhan “watson” Islambekov’s Phantom Assassin could engage the Alchemist in head-to-head combat. After Dzmitry “Fishman” Palishchuk on Bane was able to obtain a critical Fiend’s Grip on Alchemist in the 47th minute, the game was eventually over.

Entity selected Dmitry “DM” Dorokhin as a Venomancer against Virtus in the 3rd grand finals game. Entity kept up the pressure on Virtus.pro and sniped the carry as it attempted to recover from a poor lane, adding gasoline to the fire. Watson’s Terrorblade, meanwhile, was having a blast and farming exceptionally quickly because of his delusions. Entity was able to push hard and end the game in 39 minutes thanks to a significant gold advantage they had established over Virtus.pro. Strangely, Virtus.pro decided to go with an Omniknight carry in the series finale, and things did not go as planned. With its tremendous damage output, Entity strengthened its push power. During the game, Volodymyr “No[o]ne-“ Minenko’s Ember Spirit was particularly impressive, with a KDA of 10/0/13 at the half-hour mark. At the 38-minute mark, Fishman, who was now playing Bane for the third time in the series, started a team fight by using a Fiend’s Grip on Ilya “squad1x” Kuvaldin’s Leshrac. After a last-ditch effort at defense that Entity simply rejected, Virtus.pro finally had to accept defeat, unable to contain the aggressiveness and withstand the damage from Entity.
