XDG: Shyvana (Benny), Elise (Xmithie), Ziggs (Man), Kogmaw (Zuna), Thresh (Sheep)

- C9 with a small lead early, turns into a late game lead

- Not even that many kills. Just good rotations from C9.

- XDG just got behind and couldn’t make up ground at all.

- Mancloud had some nice plays on Ziggs but not enough to turn it around.

- BunnyFufu with so many GREAT flash hooks!

- I think curse is gonna win now.

- Curse gets the baron and push top lane

- BunnyFufu with a HUGE flay to stop lee sin safeguard to a ward, then the Yasuo ult!

MVP: CRS BunnyFufu 0-2-8

- 2 flash hooks that were amazing, but that flay at the end.. man I want to watch it again!

CLG: Shyvana (Nien), Eve (Dexter), Ziggs (Link), Lucian (Double), Thresh (Aphromoo)

C9: Shen (Balls), Kha (Meteos), Lulu (Hai), Corki (Sneaky), Karma (Lemon)

- Very close game, lots of rotation and catches. CLG has a slight gold lead with the 2 dragons

- WOAH! C9 goes huge and they get 3 for none and pick up baron!

- These Meteos engages with the shen ult or lulu ult is destroying CLG

- QUADRA FOR DOUBLELIFT!! WTF? this game isn’t over!

- AMAZING teamfight late game, C9 has baron, CLG defending and NO ONE dies.. NO ONE!!!

- then doublelift and aphro get caught and Aphro and Nien die, thats game

MVP: C9 Meteos 11-5-10

- Meteos had so many great engage with Kha and the late game pick on Aphro and Nien led to C9 victory

DIG vs CRS

DIG: Lee (Cruzer), Vi (Crumbzz), Orianna (Goldenglue), Lucian (Qtpie), Annie (Kiwi)

CRS: Renek (Quas), Elise (Dominate), Nid (Voyboy), Ez (Cop), Karma (BunnyFufu)

- They banned Thresh against BunnyFufu. Good choice.

- Crs comes out to an early lead, Dig way ahead on farm though

- Dig pressures dragon, Dominate steals… But Goldenglue with a Quadra to turn that around!

- DIG brute forces baron and Kiwi gets a good tibbers over the wall to stun Dominate and prevent the steal

- Dig with the baron pushes down top inhib turret and kill Quas, then win

MVP: DIG Goldenglue 8-2-5

- Hit maybe 1 shockwave all game. LOL but it didnt matter. The quadra was awesome and he really played well.

TSM: Lee (Dyrus), Panth (Oddone), Syndra (Bjerg), Lucian (Turtle), Thresh (Xpecial)

- TSM out to an early advantage off the lane swap

- Top and Jungle laning against bot lanes

- TSM controls a lot of the game.

- Semi-throw at baron, they get it but lose 3. EG loses 4, but it was a close fight

- IDK TSM won.

MVP: TSM Bjergsen 7-1-1

- KDA alone chose this MVP. Nice ults and just well played by Bjerg and the rest of TSM

DAY 2

DIG: Jayce (Cruzer), Elise (Crumbzz), Orianna (Glue), Draven (Imaqtpie), Thresh (Kiwi)

- XDG gets first Dragon, but DIG comes back and gets 2 kills off it

- DIG continues to dominate mid, push 2 turrets and kill 3-4 over a 2 min period

- DIG goes for baron and only Xmithie comes to contest. As they go to kill him, XDG takes and INHIB turret! Are they winning??? Are they?!?!

- Qtpie is playing Draven like a Pro ADC!! Oh.. wait.

- DIG in the base of XDG but they didn’t win yet. THERE IS STILL HOPE!

- Nope. No hope.

MVP: DIG Imaqtpie 6-0-7

- Qtpie’s draven was ridiculous. So much damage and no deaths. Well played.

TSM vs CST

TSM: Shyvana (Dyrus), Elise (Oddone), Grag (Bjerg), Jinx (Turtle), Thresh (Xpecial)

CST: Jax (Zion), Eve (Nintendude), Ahri (Shiphtur), Lucian (Wiz), Leona (Daydreamin)

- TSM with an early lead off of dragon and Bjergsen’s triple kill!

- Zion’s Jax is unfair. His split push is really strong and TSM is having a hard time dealing with it.

- TSM forces baron for like 2 mins. Enough time for Dyrus to die and TP back, and 2 super mega death rockets. They get it

- They get mid inhib off the baron

- Push bot and get a good engage to win it.

MVP: TSM Bjergsen 9-1-6

- Bjergsen is so good. I have nothing else to say. A triple kill plus a few massive outplays in this game leads to his second MVP this week.

CRS vs CLG

CRS: Renek (Quas), Elise (Dominate), Lulu (Voyboy), Cait (Cop), Karma (BunnyFufu)

CLG: Shen (Nien), Kha (Dexter), LeBlanc (Link), Jinx (Doublelift), Thresh (Aphromoo)

- CLG bans Heimer, Rammus, and Poppy….

- Oh surprise! A lane swap… xD CRS picks up dragon afterwards.

- Quas gets 4 kills in the Dragon fight! Plus CRS secures drag

- Is this CLG? They haven’t even gotten 1 dragon…

- CLG gets a really good fight and take out 4 for 1! Take baron after!

- Cop gets a Quadra kill on a really strange engage from CLG, Nien ulted and just kinda went in alone

- CRS takes baron, then mid inhib

- CRS stalls in the bot lane while the minions actually win it for them

- CLG looked out of sync in this game. Not the 3rd place CLG we are used to

MVP: CRS Cop 7-2-6

- Cop plays cait so well, and pretty much anytime that he can. This game showed us why. The quadra… so gud!

DIG vs CST

DIG: Lee (Cruzer), Eve (Crumbzz), Zed (Golden), Corki (Qtpie), Annie (Kiwi)

CST: Shyvana (Zion), Panth (Nintendude), Ryze (Shiphtur), Lucian (Wiz), Leona (Day)

- DIG with an early lead, go to pressure dragon and lose the fight, bringing CST back

- Fairly boring game through the mid game

- CST wins a good fight with a solar flare on Kiwi, pick up dragon after

- Lots of back and forth and DIG comes out ahead with the baron. They get top inhib

- DIG won a baron fight with a great tibbers from Kiwi, take baron after a 3-0 win

- So… Wiz kills the DIG bot lane. Golden is trying to pressure mid with crumbzz, then Zion goes back to prevent them from backing to base as the remaining CST members push the top open inhib. They get the inhib, push the nexus turrets and win the game.

MVP: CST WizFujin 15-2-6

- Wiz just won the game for his team, catching Qtpie over extending then assisting in the final push

CLG vs EG

CLG: Shyvana (Nien), Lee (Dexter), Orianna (Link), Lucian (Doublelift), Leona (Aphro)

EG: Nid (Innox), Elise (Snoopeh), Ziggs (Pobelter), Cait (YellowPete), Thresh (Krepo)

- WOW! A 2v2 bot lane. Thank god…

- Took 14 mins but we have first blood mid lane on Pobleter

- CLG just got a bunch of kills and dragon so CLG are definitely winning now

- OOoooo base race. Both teams take an inhib

- Dexter has an insec moment like 6 times this game. STOP BEING SO GOOD!

- Doublelift 2v1 for a double kill, and CLG takes the win off that

MPV: CLG Doublelift 9-0-4

- What a great game from Doublelift. That’s it.

TSM vs C9

TSM: Shyvana (Dyrus), Elise (Oddone), Grag (Bjerg), Lucian (Turtle), Karma (Xpecial)

C9: Renek (Balls), Eve (Meteos), Soraka (Hai), Corki (Sneaky), Morg (Lemon)

- 11 mins with no FB then a crazy fight in the red side jungle of TSM leads to a 2 for 2

- Damn this game is close. Not too exciting though, minimal kills

- Still good rotations from C9 leading to a 3-1 turret advantage

- Long game but C9 holds the clear advantage at the moment. Hai is being quite the menace.

- C9 takes the mid inhib and kill 3 like its nothing, oh.. then they end

MVP: C9 Hai 4-2-9

- Hai was such a bully in lane that Bjergsen couldn’t get an advantage and that’s what TSM really relies on.

DAY 3

DIG vs CLG

DIG: Jayce (Cruzer), Kha (Crumbzz), Orianna (Goldenglue), Ez (Imaqtpie), Annie (Kiwi)

CLG: Trundle (Nien), Lee (Dexter), Nid (Link), Lucian (Doublelift), Thresh (Aphromoo)

- omg… this game was ridiculous.

- CLG makes rotations and show the difference between the top 3 and the rest of the league

MVP: I can’t decide

- CLG played like a team, unlike any other team has, maybe all split! KDA was all around 5-6 for each member.

EG vs CRS

EG: Ryze (Innox), Panth (Snoopeh), Lulu (Pobelter), Lucian (Pete), Leona (Krepo)

CRS: Trundle (Quas), Elise (Dominate), Nid (Voyboy), Cait (Cop), Morg (Bunny)

- Again we see the 2v1 lane swaps… Some turrets down early

- Good panth ult mid puts EG a little ahead

- Snoopeh goes hard on Quas! The tank… And EG still wins the fight! They are really far ahead at this point

- Snoopeh again with the initiation with his ult leads to a 4 man advantage at baron. Quas can’t do anything, CRS surrenders.

MPV: EG Snoopeh 5-1-8

- Do i need to explain? The comments above are enough explanation.

XDG vs TSM

GAME OF THE WEEK

XDG: Ryze (Benny), Elise (Xmithie), Orianna (Mancloud), Jinx (Zuna), Thresh (Sheep)

TSM: Shyvana (Dyrus), Eve (Oddone), Syndra (Bjerg), Corki (Turtle), Karma (Xpecial)

- Oddone goes down mid for FB, Xpecial follows suit. WHAT?! TSM? You there??

- Oddone initiates kind of alone… then Dyrus goes in, kinda alone.. xD Sheep does a nice  job of disengaging. TSM loses 3. XDG none.

- Dyrus is being an annoyance in the bot lane, then a TP to baron leads to 2 kills. TSM can’t convert the Baron though.

- Oddone goes bot at 34 mins and XDG just take baron! Dammit oddone…

- XDG catches Xpecial and then Bjergsen… Leads to an inhib

- TSM rushes to baron to stop them and TSM kills 2 and gets baron!

- XDG engages 5v5 while TSM has baron, and they WIN IT! They go to win the game and they can’t finish! Geez this game…

- Big fight by baron end with only Xpecial alive. XDG takes baron @ 53 mins.

- They catch Dyrus under turret for the first kill and XDG pushes into TSM’s base to win

MVP: XDG Sheep 1-7-17

- Sheep played fantastically on his Thresh. Never a bad grab, never a bad flay, only 1 bad box (he misclicked it). Just ban his thresh…

C9 vs CST

C9: Renek (Balls), Nocturne (Meteos), Gragas (Hai), Lucain (Sneaky), Karma (Lemon)

CST: Lee (Zion), Eve (Nintendude), LeBlanc (Shiphtur), Cait (Wiz), Annie (Daydreamin)

- CST is playing C9 like C9 usually plays other people. These initiations from Daydreamin are ridiculous! 12-2 in kills and CST has taken both dragons

- Meteos is just split pushing… all game. He got an inhib.. lol

- C9 just turned this into a gold lead! WHAT?! They are so gud.

- ZionSpartan and Wiz 2 man baron over the wall! omg…

- Back and forth gold totals, picks back and forth! I have no idea who is gonna win this one!

- CST pushes top lane after getting baron, Meteos split pushing bot. Meteos fakes his back by leaving vision and pushes both nexus turrets to win the game!!!

MVP: C9 Meteos 4-4-2

- I can’t give it to anyone else. He won the game for C9

XDG vs EG

XDG: Ryze (Benny), Panth (Xmithie), Orianna (Mancloud), Cait (Zuna), Morg (Sheep)

EG: Lee (Innox), Eve (Snoopeh), LeBlanc (Pobelter), Lucian (Pete), Leona (Krepo)

- Mancloud goes HUGE and gets first blood! Then dies to snoopeh… xD

- Mancloud with another great play! Shockwave in the bot lane kills 2 instantly!

- Then XDG tries to bait dragon, they get it, then get aced… :(

- Its like that dragon fight just flipped a switch for EG and they are in a commanding lead now

- Innox is a big part of these fights, great shields plus good damage

- EG wins a fight and gets baron. This is over i think.

- EG just playing scared even though they are so far ahead!

- EG finally engages and gets a great win to secure the bot inhib, but they still don’t win!

- Then they get baron, then they win!

MVP: EG Innox 11-0-12

- With all the craziness and slow play from EG, it’s amazing Innox didn’t die at all. 23/28 kill participation and an amazing split push all game.
