SUPA HOT CREW XD's temporary substitute jungler, Impaler, nagged KMT throughout the laning phase, as his blue buff steals and dragon takedowns allowed SHC to steadily build a gold lead. SHC Impaler also set Mimer's Rengar on rails as a gank up top allowed Rengar to be a constant split-pushing menace.

KMT answered by farming more efficiently and matching SHC's tower takedowns blow for blow. KMT Jankos's dragon contests may have been unsuccessful, but they allowed KMT to pick kills and stay in the game. Xaxus held the top lane turret, and his teammates held off their opponents.

However, the Polish team committed a critical mistake during a 5v4 fight at the 44th minute, as they left their backline vulnerable to Rengar's assassination circus and Elise's dive. SUPA HOT CREW turned the fight into a favorable 3-for-2 trade and Nashor. Once they slew the epic monster, SHC claimed two inhibitors, and Mimer pressured the nexus turrets. KMT's desperate engagement backfired, and SHC closed out the game with a 5-for-3 and the nexus.

CW: RenektonSquare.png Renekton, ShyvanaSquare.png Shyvana, KassadinSquare.png Kassadin, CaitlynSquare.png Caitlyn, and FiddlesticksSquare.png Fiddlesticks


Karont3 e-Sports Club controlled the pace early on, as Econatorz's Elise repetitively disrupted CW's players. In the span of six minutes, Econatorz netted 2 kills in mid and bot, secured a dragon, and destroyed a turret.

Copenhagen Wolves counteracted K3's maneuvers with systematic turret takedowns. With map and vision control in tow, CW spotted K3's traps, and they reversed them twice: in a 4-0 teamfight at the 15th minute, and in a 5-0 ace at their blue buff three minutes later.

CW's ambushes allowed them to destroy the secondary turrets and slay Baron Nashor uncontested. Over the span of three minutes, YoungBuck and company plowed through three inhibitors and forced a favorable 4-0 teamfight, before razing the nexus at the 28 minute mark.


TCM-Gaming vs Salade Tomate Oignon

Bans

TCM: EvelynnSquare.png Evelynn, Lee SinSquare.png Lee Sin, and AnnieSquare.png Annie

STO: NidaleeSquare.png Nidalee, DrMundoSquare.png Dr. Mundo, and EliseSquare.png Elise

Picks

TCM: ShyvanaSquare.png Shyvana, CaitlynSquare.png Caitlyn, KassadinSquare.png Kassadin, ViSquare.png Vi, and FiddlesticksSquare.png Fiddlesticks

STO: RenektonSquare.png Renekton, GragasSquare.png Gragas, SorakaSquare.png Soraka, LucianSquare.png Lucian, and VolibearSquare.png Volibear


TCM sought to control the game early on, but STO proved resourceful. An early TCM Naruterador gank in the mid lane ensured a smoother laning phase for Belgianbeast's Kassadin, but STO Airwaks camped TCM's botlane and racked up multiple kills.

Despite TCM's farm advantage, both teams traded kills and turrets until the 25th minute, as the teams met near the Dragon's den. Naruterador's Vi and BarneyD's Fiddlesticks engaged, while TCM Jwaow's Shyvana blocked the escape path, and the fight ended in favor of TCM, 2-0 and the winged beast.

TCM's patience paid off: the snowball was taking shape. Teamfights heavily favored TCM Motroco's teammates, who then claimed objectives (baron among them) and asserted a 14k gold lead by minute 34. Three minutes later, TCM sieged the top lane, and they overwhelmed the Frenchmen's desperate engage to the tune of a 5-1 ace and the nexus.
