MSI 2022 Day Four brings us around to full Group play days. Today we get a closer look at Group B.

Prior to Day, Four RNG had a 3-0 record, all games will be replayed prior to May 15th (the final day of Group Stage). You can see Riot Games' full statement here.

 

MSI – PSG v RED

msi 2022 day 4 PSG RED

An objective-focused first 10-minutes saw first blood go over to PSG, as RED secured the Rift Herald. PSG remained ahead on kills into the 15-minute mark, however, the gold lead remained even. The game remained objective-focused, with 22-minutes now on the clock, only four kills had been secured. RED had regained the gold lead, as they looked to claim a third Drake. While RED secured the Drake, PSG claimed the team fight ace and a Baron. PSG moved to 4k ahead, however, they failed to make the most of Baron, only seeing a 1k power play secured. While RED's map control had been great all game, PSG's team fighting was always better. PSG won another team fight ace to claim another MSI victory.

  • Kills: 14-1

MSI – RNG v Wildcats

msi 2022 day 4 RNG IW

IW tried to make a 2v2 play on the bot side, but it ends in disaster as they hand two kills over to RNG. RNG pulled the trigger on a play on the bot side and claim three kills for their trouble. Moving to 3k ahead at just 8-minutes into the game. With not even 10-minutes on the clock, with a 3k lead secured, IW looked out of ideas. RNG forced a play top-side again, and while it looked good, IW turned it around. While the lead was still in favor of RNG, IW was staying within touching distance. Despite IW's best efforts to win a fight at 20-minutes, RNG just had too much for IW to deal with. RNG cracked open the IW base as they moved to 10k ahead. RNG wins another team fight, this time it's enough to secure the win as RNG secure their first win of MSI 2022 (again).

MSI – Wildcats v PSG

msi 2022 day 4 PSG IW

 

First blood is secured by IW, as they look to stay alive in MSI. PSG found a way back into the game, picking up key kills across the Rift. However, the gold lead remained tied up at the 11-minute mark. The back-and-forth of the game continues, as both sides chunk each other. At 16-minutes, IW finally looked to gain some momentum in the mid-lane, picking up four massive kills as the lead swung back to them. With Baron up, but unclaimed, IW maintained their 2k lead but the game had started to get scrappy. At the 25-minute mark, IW tried to force a Baron play but PSG sussed it out. PSG picked up two kills and moved towards the Baron themselves. PSG claim the Baron as IW conceded the objective and their lead. Baron was enough for PSG to look to the end, with their map pressure proving too much for IW to handle. With Baron having warn off, PSG was able to secure the victory regardless.

  • Time: 32:51
  • Kills: 16-16
