DPL Season 3 Top
For the second time in a row Newbee has won the Dota2 Professional League. Newbee started DPL Season 3 Top by finishing 4th in the group stage, this set them up to play VG.J in the first round of the playoffs where something truly bizzare happened. As Albert Einstein is generally credited as saying, “The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again, but expecting different results”. The two teams drafted the same lineups in the same order two games in a row. For Newbee this meant after Sccc's game 1 on Invoker where he went 20-0-9 he had another opportunity to run rampant on the hero, and run rampant he did with a 16-1-10 performance in game 2.
Newbee went on to face the DAC winners Invictus Gaming in the semi-finals where despite a solid team effort from IG, and an interesting aggressive trilane featuring Burning's Spectre that didn't quite work out, Newbee defeated IG 2-1. This set them up to face LGD in the grand finals who had gone through IG.V and VG in order to make it to the finals to face Newbee. Newbee's duo of Uuu9 and Sccc proved too much to handle for LGD as they lost 3-1 to some well executed ganks which kept Maybe's impact on the games to a minimum and with the lock down offered from Kpii's Legion Commander Newbee secured their victory during DPL Season 3.
