LoL: Worlds 2020 | Machi Esports vs G2 Esports Recap

Machi and G2 took to the Rift to kick off the third day of Groups.

With their game 1 upset victory over Team Liquid, Machi were looking to make a statement. For G2 they wanted to keep the momentum going after a nail-biting victory over Suning. It wasn’t the start Machi wanted, however. G2 sprung a level one trap in the top lane as Wunder managed to pick up the first blood. Machi managed to push into Jankos’ jungle and grab a well deserved follow up kill. However, Wunder was able to counter kill him as he gained some early advantages for himself in the top lane.

Madness descended upon the game at the nine-minute mark after Caps was taken down in the mid lane Machi moved towards the Rift Herald. They win the initial fight but as Perkz and Micky joined the fight, G2 took the extended fight with Caps re-engaging as G2 moved back into the lead. With small fights and skirmishes breaking out all over the Rift, G2 is able to bridge a 2.5k lead over Machi. With the fourth drake spawning on the map, G2 found their moment to pull the trigger and ace Machi. Caps come in late via the Hero’s Entrance and Machi just wasn't able to stop it as G2 took the Baron.

A spark of hope

Machi pulled the trigger on a fight after they caught Mikyx. While they lost the initial fight, they turned it around as G2 lost three members for two in reply. As such, they essentially wasted their Baron Power Play. G2 caught out Machi in their own jungle and turned the kills into a mid lane inhibitor. As they pushed to get down the bot lane inhibitor Machi were able to get a huge counter fight onto G2 as they secured themselves a Baron buff as they tried to keep their dreams alive. While it looked nervy for G2 at times, they found Machi in their own jungle, picking up the jungle and continuing their unbeaten record thus far.
