G2 Esports vs Suning
G2 Esports (“G2”) versus Suning (“SN”) is an exciting matchup between the two powerhouses of Group A. SN starts the game off strong with almost every lane having priority allowing for SoFM to secure a double crab start. Jankos then attempts a solo invade for Raptors at six minutes and dies to Angel. SN then gets the first drag at eight minutes, but G2 strikes back with an Ezreal TP from Perkz at 10 minutes to get a two-for-one. Angel then gets caught in G2’s bot side jungle making it an overall three-for-one trade.
The game continues to be a fierce battle between the two teams. The gold is relatively even, however, SN leads with the two dragon advantage. G2 and SN skirmish for the third drag, Perkz gets caught before the objective is taken, but before SN can secure it, Caps steals the Ocean Drag with a clutch Wild Cards. G2 gets a pick on Angel and starts Baron, but SN counter-picks Perkz and the match falls back to a stalemate. Both teams again decide to skirmish for drag, SN completely overwhelms G2 in the skirmish giving them an Ace and the Ocean Drag.
Buffs, base defenses and backdoors
Five minutes later both teams are again ready to fight for the dragon. In a nail-biting skirmish, SN comes out on top allowing them to secure the Ocean Soul. Things are looking grim, but G2 isn’t ready to give up yet. G2 steel themselves for the Elder Dragon fight knowing how crucial the buff is. Kiting along the outskirts G2 tactically plays for a slow skirmish utilizing the space Ezreal provides. Finally seeing an opening Caps Destiny’s onto Angel killing SN’s mid-laner. G2 wins the ensuing fight securing the Elder Dragon and Baron Nashor.
G2 then goes for the end looking to utilize both buffs, but overcommits on the fight and gets aced by SN in their attempt to end.
