LEC Summer 2019 Gauntlet: S04 vs Splyce Recap

Game One


Splyce (“SPY”) took the lead in the series with a dominating Game One. They started the action in the mid lane. Shalke 04 (“S04”) tried for a gank, but SPY turned it around with a Nocturne ultimate for two unanswered kills. S04 responded soon after in the bot lane, using a teleport ward behind the SPY bot lane to close in for a kill. SPY continued to turn S04’s plays in the bot lane, turning a bot lane gank into a 4-2 trade. S04 dove for a kill and took the first tower in the bot lane while SPY dove the mid lane and gained another kill. SPY took two towers and the Cloud Drake while S04 only took one tower.
The building pressure erupted in the mid lane with a two for two trade.

S04 found another team fight mid, finally getting an advantage in a 2-1 trade. SPY found their next massive advantage at the Infernal Dragon. S04 started it after being split up and SPY punished for the dragon and four unanswered kills. S04 tried to start the Baron, but suffered a similar fate, losing the Baron and four more kills. S04 attempted to pick the Nocturne in the top lane with two members but lost a kill 2v1. SPY closed the game quickly after, taking the mid then bot lane before diving in for another 4-0 fight and the nexus.
