Having taken down and eliminated Team Nigma from the OGA
Dota PIT Season 3: EU/CIS event yesterday, VP.Prodigy’s next challenger would
be Team Liquid as the lower bracket action kicked off today.
Having unfortunately gone up against Team Secret in their
opening series at the event, VP.P still made an amazing showing as they managed
to take a game off the undisputed champions of the region in recent events.

as VP.P found a way to fend of the onslaught of Liquid and subsequently close
out game one in their favour.
Although Liquid had put up a great fight in game one, the
next game saw VP.P turn up the heat as they rolled over their opponents at each

Liquid, unfortunately, their string of early exits from events continues, although
