Dota 2 Pro Cup Season 2: Team Elephant sets new Dota 2 networth record with 154,000 gold lead over EHOME. With elimination on the line, Elephant set an impressive new record in a competitive Dota 2 game. Read more to find out all the details about the game.
Elephant is relatively new in the Dota 2 pro scene, and they are impressing in their first LAN tournament. After beating PSG.LGD in the lower-bracket finals, they cruised to the finals, which was yet another test of their skill.
While the first two games were pretty normal drafts, the decisive 3rd game of the series was all about split pushing and avoiding fights. Elephant took game one with a Slark-Templar Assassin duo core buffed up with an Ogre Magi. EHOME hit back in game 2 with a Night Stalker, Void Spirit and Lifestealer core, picking off Elephant one-by-one.

Things really took a deep turn in Game 3 as Elephant picked up a Night Stalker, Nature’s prophet and Mars along with a supporting Keeper of the Light and a roaming Lina. EHOME went all out on pushing power with a Drow Ranger, Viper and Shadow Shaman.

All of this split pushing led to a game of cat-and mouse with both teams avoiding fights, resulting in a 80-minute game. EHOME are known for the prowess to keep the enemy out of their base.
So, Elephant had to build a steady lead and grew it to 150,000. Lina purchased 2 rapiers, Nature Prophet got one for himself, while Nightstalker ate 2 moon shards. After securing Roshan, Elephant forced EHOME to fight without their buybacks, sealing the victory.
