LoL: Worlds 2020 | LGD Gaming vs TSM Recap
TSM and LGD fought only for pride on their way out of Worlds 2020.
LGD Gaming vs TSM
LGD vs TSM is a match that means nothing in the grand scheme of things for Worlds, but TSM didn't want to go 0-6 and become the first major region first seed to do so in Worlds history. As for LGD, they went 0-2 so far today, so they wanted to make a statement in their final game against the NA first seed.
First Blood goes over to Xiye as he solo kills Bjergsen in a 1v1 under his own tower. TSM did manage to claw back some gold in the mid lane as a three-man gank sees them grab a kill but LGD is quickly able to retake the lead moments later.
LGD do TSM dirty as they go 0-6 in groups
TSM got a big pick for Doublelift, however, as they retreated LGD was able to collapse onto them. With this, they maintained their 2k lead as they dropped Rift Herald into the mid lane. After picking up a kill on the top side, TSM moved toward the second Rift Herald. They failed to secure it but picked up an early kill in return. LGD, however, pushed them back and returned two kills in the initial fight as TSM limped away back to their tier two as LGD went 3.5k ahead. TSM does manage to claim the third drake as they move to Soul point. However, LGD quickly moved towards Baron Buff as they claimed it and both teams moved away from the river with LGD 5k ahead.
With Baron Buff, LGD took the bot lane inhibitor and recall back to their base as they gained a 2k Baron Power Play. LGD is able to catch out a flanking Broken Blade, he survives but as he fights a 2v2 in the jungle his team loses their mid lane inhibitor. At the same time, LGD also moved to Soul point drake. TSM managed to pick up a key kill as they moved to the Baron but LGD went for the base. TSM picked up the Buff but LGD was able to take down the nexus as they took down TSM.
