I’ll do one of these for the East Qualifiers in a separate thread.

Feel free to use the comment section to post thoughts on the matches or correct me if I make any mistakes. Basic match stats will be available 5-10 minutes after the match ends on this page and the live match page will let you know who is playing which heroes and what the current tower score is.

5.) Highest GPM in a Single Match (5 Points) — ‘Less than 800 GPM’ versus ‘More than 800 GPM’

Final answer: ‘More than 800 GPM.’ Done by Sockshka of dd.dota.

6.) Number of Heroes Never Picked or Banned (2 Points)

Final answer: ’36-40′

58 heroes were picked or banned. With 98 heroes in the pool, that leaves 40 heroes not picked or banned. 5 new heroes appeared on this list in day three and 1 new hero in day four. No new heroes were picked or banned on day five. Three new heroes were picked or banned on day 6. One new hero was picked or banned on day 7.

7.) Number of Big Comebacks (1 Point) —  ’3 or Less’ versus ’4 or More’ 

Final answer: ‘3 or Less’ . 0 comebacks.

8.) Fastest Game Time (3 Points) —  ’Under 18 Minutes’ versus ‘Over 18 Minutes

Final answer: ‘Over 18 Minutes.’

Rox.KIS called a gg at 17 minutes and change. There’s a debate over whether the Compendium stats end when the ‘gg’ is called or when the game actually ends. I’m going to follow the line in the Compendium that says ‘All times are based on the in-game clock.’ If Valve issues a statement that says otherwise I’ll change this.

9.) Number of Greater than 60 Minute Games (3 Points) —  ’5 or Less’ versus ’6 or More’ 

Final answer: ‘5 or Less.’ One 60 minute game. This match.

10.) Earliest Roshan Kill Time (1 Point) —  ’Less Than 1 Minute’ versus ‘Over 1 Minute’ 

Final answer: ‘Over 1 Minute.’

11.) Earliest Tower Kill Time (1 Point) —  ’Less Than 2 Minutes’ versus ‘Over 2 Minutes’ 

Final answer: ‘Over 2 Minutes.’

12.) Rapiers Purchased (1 Point) —  ’2 or Less’ versus ’3 or More’ 

Final answer: ‘3 or More.’  Eight purchased total. Two purchased in the first three days. Both by Gyrocopter. One purchased by in this match and the other in this match. On day five I believe four were purchased. Here, here, and here. On day 6 one was picked up in this match. One in the finals.

13.) Refreshers Purchased (1 Point) —  ’3 or Less’ versus ’4 or More’ 

Final answer: ‘3 or Less.’ 3 purchased: in this match, this match, and this match.

14.) Largest Single Crit Hit Damage (1 Point)

Using the assumptions outlined in this post, the correct answer might be 1701 – 1800. Once again, I’m not really sure what Valve is asking for in this question. I believe Luna hit a ranged creep for 1798 displayed damage and 1696 of actual damage at minute 72.44 in this game.

I saw a reddit comment that said in the combat log a Tiny illusion struck another illusion for a much larger crit in this game. Update: Please see Simon’s comment (thanks Simon) below regarding this. Crit displayed is only 991 while actual damage is 2171. Which one counts depends on what Valve is looking for in this question.

15.) Most Roshan Kills in a Single Game — ’3 or Less’ versus ’4 or More’ (3 Points)

Final answer: ‘4 or More.’ Done in this great match between EG and Rox.KIS.
