MSI Rumble Stage Day 2 is here, and after day one, we're in for another cracking day of LoL action.


Day one saw unbeaten runs come to an end. And with G2 playing the first and last games of the day, could they maintain that 22-0 record? Would EG build on that 1-1 record, and would we learn who's struggling already at this early stage.

Another huge play in the mid-lane for EG, getting two kills onto G2 as the lead flips over to the NA side. A huge fight at the Drake once again goes the way of EG, claiming a 2-for-1 and a Drake. However, in the aftermath, it's another 2-for-1 for EG as they claim yet another huge fight. After sitting comfortably during the mid-game, one mistake from Vulcan leads to an easy 3 kills and a Baron for G2.

MSI Rumble Stage Day 2

 

First blood over to RNG after PSG pulled the trigger on a poor play. PSG picked up two massive kills in the bottom lane as they get back into the match.
