The first match was between Hanwha Life Esports and DRX. In game 1, Jeong "Chovy" Ji-hoon's Lucian shined. Chovy's Lucian made a 100+ CS difference and shoved in 42,000 damage. DRX stood strong, but they weren't able to take enough objectives and eventually fell.
The second game also went to Hanwha Life Esports. In all of the fights, Hanwha Life Esports took more benefits from the beginning. With their advantage, they collected all the dragons and took the Mountain Dragon's soul in just 24 minutes. At this point, the difference was already too big. After taking Baron, Hanwha Life Esports destroyed DRX's Nexus.

T1 struck back in game 2. The game was close until mid-game, but Moon "Oner" Hyeon-joon's Lillia made a difference. When DWG KIA was retreating after a dragon fight, Oner put three champions to sleep and T1 had a big teamfight win. Through this win, T1 pushed hard with Baron and tied the match.
The third game was in DWG KIA's favor. Kim "Canyon" Geon-bu's Nidalee had scaled well, and scored kills in the top and bot lanes.
