By popular demand, the Inven Global Meme Awards are back, featuring the dramatic semifinal face-off between G2 Esports and DAMWON Gaming. Spoilers: It's a tough one for Mikyx.
The most stand-out memory of game 1 will be ShowMaker emote-flashing iG and FPX when solo-killing G2 players. This was, apparently, enough to anger some fans.
Speaking of Quickshot, he knew how this was going to end right at the start, so he tried to save G2 Esports some money.
While G2 recovered in game 2 to tie the score, game 3 was a rough one. Mikyx's Pantheon struggled, but the jungle difference — a.k.a. the Canyon difference — was huge as well. Then again, wait till we get to game 4...
Game 4 was over in 19:03 minutes — the fastest game in Worlds history. G2 took it with a smile on their faces, and so did the community. While perhaps a disappointing way to go out, this was G2's third semifinal appearance in three years.
