SSW VS SSB
Game 1 - White
SSW Slaughters SSB 3-11 in 28 minutes. There is no real redeeming quality here, but it does show why SSW will probably win the summoners cup.
Game 2 - White
SSB gives first blood early on, however they manage to keep from falling completely apart until around 18 mins. SSW starts their rotations, and just outplays SSB at every single corner. Time after time SSB gets smashed, and they end up losing the game around 32 mins in.
Game 3 - White
SSW destroys blue. There is almost nothing else to say. Pawn in the mid lane was godly this game on Fizz 11-0-5. Overall White just dominated early, mid, late… well “late” is 22 mins when they pushed down the nexus, but you get the drift. SSW is definitely the favorite to win this year’s World Championship, especially after this series.
SHRC vs OMG
Game 1 - OMG
Right out of champ select, OMG has the better team. More damage and utility all around and it seems like they forced inSec on a lower tier pick, with Jarvan IV. Start of the game was a 3 minute dance around blue in SHRC jungle, and Loveling gets it! Cool and Loveling kinda carried this game by making plays when the team needed it. OMG camped bot in order to shut down the Uzi. I think a lot of the reason was because inSec was forced on J4 who was not the playmaker they needed. Mid/late game OMG just waited for the right engages, which was normally Uzi or inSec going in alone and dying, then they won it.
Loveling 8-0-4 Kha; Cool 4-0-8 Jayce
Game 2 - SHRC
Nothing too interesting in champ select. Fairly even game until second blue buff spawns for SHRC. They engage and pick up 2 kills for one. Dragon fight leads to OMG taking 3 kills vs 2 and dragon. Very close game at 20 mins. 3 - 2 in towers for OMG, but SHRC is up by 300g. Dragon fight at 23 mins and OMG takes another 4 kills and dragon vs just 3 kills for SHRC. ANOTHER fight 2 minutes later and Cool’s Jayce + San’s Corki absolutely DESTROY SHRC nearly killing inSec and corn in one hit. SHRC get a great fight at baron at 29 mins taking 4 kills and a baron buff. 33 mins in and the game is still close, but SHRC is pulling away with a 2k gold lead. SHRC takes another baron and a fight just a few minutes later. Totally in control, SHRC pushes to win.
Game 3 - SHRC
Holy shit. inSec on Fiddlesticks. SHRC take a 4 minute dragon after fighting it for 2 mins. Next dragon fight gives OMG a small 1k lead after an awful teamfight for SHRC. Another skirmish win from OMG gives them 4 kills and a dragon. 7k gold lead after ANOTHER dragon for OMG at 25 mins. A fantastic ult from inSec’s Fiddle leads SHRC to a 3-0 teamfight win that opened up the mid inhib, 2 towers, and a baron. HUGE swing, but OMG immediately kills 4 and they take SHRC’s top inhib. CRAZY SEXY FIDDLE ORIANNA WOMBO COMBO FROM SHRC DESTROYS OMG. SHRC takes mid inhib and both nexus turrets, but they overextend and kill 3 members of SHRC without losing any. ANOTHER crazy fiddle orianna teamfight win from SHRC leads to a baserace but Cola interrupts OMG’s recalls leading to the SHRC win.
OMG vs SRC G4
Pick/Ban: SRC with the Jayce ban, OMG first picks Lee Sin. yoooo
Summary: Lane swap for both teams with SHR getting to matchup they were looking for with Lucian/Nami vs Thresh/Corki. OMG really looking for ganks and roaming very early in this game. Lanes normalize around 6:30. OMG IS GANK THIRSTY! First teamfight at 7:45, SHR gets first blood on Uzi but give up two kills in response and a dragon. While Lucian still has control of the bottom lane with the first blood, OMG is really focusing on jungle vision/control. OMG coming up big in their teamfight performance around 13:45 getting a kill and forcing SHR back from a tower dive. Dragon #2 goes to OMG at 15:00 bringing their lead up to 4k gold. Bit of trading going on around 17:00, 1 for 1 showing that this is still very much anyone's game. An amazing hook and flay from Cloud catches Insec out in SHR's jungle. a hectic teamfight follows at 19:30. Lots of trading ending in 7/3 OMG's favor. Dragon #3 goes to SHR at 21:45. Cola (Mundo) gets caught from under SHR tower, and OMG attempts to take a few more kills only to be dissuaded by Uzi. Uzi is basically the only reason SHR is still in this game. Maybe SHR will get a second turret this game. Wait, no, they're too busy getting caught in the jungle at 28:00 and losing another teamfight. THE GREAT ZILEAN CHASE @ 29:00. OMG gets the first baron at 31:15 and initiates a teamfight straight after. Insec is a god, making the plays by escaping the teamfight and picking up the stragglers afterwards. SRC's base gets cracked open in the bottom @ 35:45, SRC drops and OMG takes game 4.
MVP: OMG Cloud. Thresh making picks, setting up ganks, and generally facilitating positive trades. Madlife level plays for real.
OMG vs SRC G5
Pick/Ban: SHR bans TF, good call. Panth pick for SRC. Wat.
Summary: SHR picks out Gogoing for first blood. SRC gets a great tower dive bottom picking up 3 kills for 1. SRC gets a slick jungle catch on Loveling, a dragon for SRC follows at 11:00. 11:30-13:30 is straight up chaos all over the map. Everyone is roaming, everyone is getting kills, and SHR is safely in the lead. SHR is tower diving like nobodies business. 17:30, 12/5 in favor of SHR, Pantheon was a good choice. 22:45, OMG gets caught in two different locations in mid-split push. Dragon #2 goes to SRC at 23:45. 27:30, SRC baits a baron not once, but twice and get the teamfight they want 23/6 in favor of SRC. OMG is really in trouble, like irreconcilable trouble. At 30:00 SRC decides the game should be over and base dives OMG picking up a bunch of kills and taking out the first inhibitor of the game. 33:33 SRC takes the game! 32/9 in SRC's favor with a 24k gold lead.
MVP: SRC Uzi, dear lord. The carry is real.
