When Xtreme Gaming had no more ammunition left in their tank, Matu was unstoppable in the closing seconds of the game, evading the skills of the other team while taking down crucial heroes.

When Liquid lost to Virtus Pro in the upper bracket semifinals by a score of 2-1, they faced elimination. The Liquid went all-out against Xtreme Gaming, with the tournament's outcome on the line. Following his declaration of his retirement earlier this year, MATUMBAMAN may be competing in his last Dota 2 event. He had an outstanding game-one performance.

With the aid of Aydin "iNSaNiA" Sarkohi's support, Undying, the carry player, had a successful landing phase, taking down the Death Prophet and Nyx Assassin of the opposing team in the top lane. Liquid equipped Pangolier and Slark, two of its main heroes, with two Diffusal Blades to take advantage of the team's early-game success. In the decisive battle of the first game, the two mana-draining items finally paid off. Matu decided to engage Xtreme Gaming head-on when cowering behind their tier-two tower.

Ren "old eLeVeN" Yangwei felt the pressure as he used Slark's Pounce to seek openings. As a result, he fired Death Prophet's Exorcism ultimate, even though he had no one to use it on. Matu swiftly broke off the fight and started to adjust himself in preparation for another one. When Michael "miCKe" Vu's Pangolier delivered a wonderfully timed swashbuckle that depleted Death Prophet and Nyx Assassin's mana and brought them below half HP, Xtreme Gaming attempted to destroy Matu's Slark.

As soon as possible, Matu's Slark made its way to the rear line and defeated Zhang "Paparazi" Chengjun's Ember Spirit. The remaining enemy heroes were quickly eliminated by Liquid, forcing Xtreme Gaming to declare victory at the 19-minute mark. In the subsequent match, the Western European team similarly dispatched Xtreme Gaming quickly, defeating their Chinese opponents in only 26 minutes. On October 12 at 1:00 pm, Team Liquid will play Vici Gaming in the lower bracket semifinal of the TI11 Last Chance qualifier. 5:00 a.m. GMT on October 11 at 10:00 p.m. PT. On PGL's primary Twitch feed, fans may watch the game.
