In the match between kt Rolster and Hanwha Life Esports, which consisted of 2 games, kt Rolster smiled. In the first game, kt Rolster wiped out Hanwha with an explosive teamfight and stopped Hanwha’s momentum in its tracks. Instantly making his way into the entire enemy team, Smeb displayed the pinnacle usage of Kennen’s ultimate. With a basis of accelerated growth, UcaL’s Azir and Smeb’s Kennen were responsible for closing out game 1.
In the 2nd game, the match, of course, went into the hands of kt. Preemptively deciphering Hanwha’s movements through carefully placed wards, kt took the initiative by completely disabling Hanwha’s ability to retaliate. Being able to implement their early game snowball comp, kt kept gaining simple but yet constant leads. Thus, Hanwha Life Esports’ possibility of making their way into playoffs disappeared.
Previous to the set match between kt and Hanwha, Gen.G was victorious against MVP in game 1. Gen.G gained early priority in the bot lane through timed lvl 1 trades. As a result, Gen.G ran away with the game. Without much fighting at all, Gen.G solidified the win by widening the gap differential through their unique and robust macro.
Even with the Amumu jungle pick variance coming from MVP, Gen.G was able to,yet again, safely defeat MVP. Gen.G accomplished a complete 2:0 set score. Cleanly counter ganking MVP’s attempt at a re-gank in the bot lane, Gen.G successfully blocked MVP from striking back. Boasting his incredible mechanics on Zoe, Fly put the nail in the coffin and secured a win for his team.
