[b]Zenith suffered a double blow yesterday when they lost to Canadian team Enervate Gaming (eNe) in The Frozen League (TFL) and European team ScaF in MYM Prime Defending (PriDe) 4.[/b]
Zenith’s Anthony “Ant” put down their eventual defeat by Enervate Gaming to the lag they faced. He said that the delay was “horrible” and that Zenith “couldn’t farm even in [a] free lane”.
When asked about Zenith’s loss to ScaF in MYM PriDe 4, “Ant” said that ScaF played a “purely unexpected” strategy. Apparently, Zenith had thought that ScaF was going for a “lane control hold for Visage” strategy. ScaF, however, got early game items for all their heroes and did a fast push strategy.
“Ant” also admitted that Zenith’s player lineup against ScaF “wasn’t ideal” and that team morale was low after the earlier loss to eNe. Zenith’s lineup for the ScaF match was Ant, GPS, Ice, Musica and TofuBoi.
