It wasn't so long ago that Liquid`Dota played eight matches in nine days, but given the intervention of a five day break it suddenly feels like forever since we last saw the team play. Well suffer no more, as Liquid is right back in action today in a doubleheader against Dignitas. First, we lock horns in Killing Spree NA, where Dignitas is the King of the Hill, and we've fought through Fnatic.NA and EG to gain the right to challenge them. Then, immediately after, we play our losers bracket match in the DotaHut Invitational.
So far, we've played close, long games against Dignitas, but we haven't scored a win from them, going 0-4 overall. Today is a great opportunity to reverse that result in one fell swoop. After the week of matches and scrims during the "break", Liquid is looking in better form than we have before, especially in our past matches vs our North American rivals.

In past games against Dignitas, we have usually held a lead in the midgame, only to lose lategame against a very farmed Aui_2000. In today's matches, the key will be containing Dignitas's 4-1 potential, finding ways to catch Aui out, and being aggressive about ruining his laning phase. Having a carry hero who can match Aui lategame might also be helpful if we hope to drag the game late. Dignitas is a team with a lot of talent and experience. They play a powerful style that has given our midgame teamfight focus fits. Hopefully for Liquid, the third (and fourth) try will be the charm, and we'll take both wins today!
