TSM and Gen.G took to the Rift today in the hopes of getting ahead in Group C.
Gen.G vs TSM
TSM was looking to make a statement by locking in signature picks such as Nidalee and Senna despite yesterday’s defeat. Gen.G ("GEN") on the other hand was simply looking to clean up their game to avoid any close calls. TSM was able to strike first with a kill onto Rascal’s Volibear after a full top clear from Spica. However, while TSM was up on kills both the jungle and mid were down 20 CS a piece at five minutes in. Looking to pick up the slack for their team Doublelift is able to find a flash root on to Ruler at eight minutes securing a kill for TSM.
Although things looked close the experience differential across the board would continue to plague TSM throughout the game. The trend would continue as TSM would look to find kills to make up for their deficit while GEN would continue to build upon their already solidified lead. Rascal was at the receiving end of multiple TSM advances surviving most of them, but finally, TSM found the kill onto the Volibear at 19 minutes.
A skirmish would soon break out in bot lane as TSM and GEN locked into 5v5 where both teams fought, but none of the members died. TSM repositions to control the dragon and GEN responds but collapses on Doublelift breaking apart TSM’s hold and securing the third dragon. TSM would then get swept in GEN’s blue side jungle allowing GEN Baron Nashor and the win at 27 minutes.
