First game of Day 3 of the Eurpean LCS is the thriller between Gambit and Alliance. Froggen and crew are up 3-1 on the Russians and are looking to keep it that way, while Eddie and crew want to show they are a real contender for the first three spots in Europe. On the blue side, GMB ban Thresh, Leona, Irelia and pick Jax, Evelynn, Yasuo, Lucian and Gragas to face off against ALL, on the purple side, who ban Kayle, Kassadin, Elise and pick Shyvana, Lee Sin, Lulu, Twitch and Morgana.
2′ – ALL go for the lane swap and send their duo in the top-lane in order to delay Jax’ power-spike as much as possible.
3′ – Darien gives away FB to Shook’s Lee Sin as he missteps in the river
10′ – CS count shows even lanes in the top, 38-44 and bottom-lane, 94-92 and a slight advantage for niQ in the mid-lane, 89-76
12′ – Gambit secure themselves the first dragon of the game because Alliance were no where near the pit, despite having full vision of it.
16′ – The two teams have their first brawl in the mid-lane and Alliance barely win that one, 2-1 as both teams retreat to the fountain.
18′ – As the dragon re-spawned, the two teams went to check the pit at the same time and it is Gambit who barely come out ahead this time, 2-1
20′ – Blue buff invade from GMB and they follow that up with a dragon kill as Shyvana was stuck in the top-lane without teleport.
24′ – Alliance organize a death-trap in the baron-bush and while Jax falls for it and dies, he manages to kite them long enough for his team to destroy the mid inner turret. Advantage Gambit.
26′ – After a prolonged fight around the dragon pit and the mid-lane, Alliance find themselves 4 kills, but Gambit secure the dragon. The gold difference between the two teams is below 1k, and there is a ticking time bomb on Alliance’s composition with both Yasuo and Jax scaling immensely.
31′ – After a one minute tango around the mid-lane, the two teams finally square off and due to Shyvana’s tankiness, Alliance manage to come out ahead, 4-1, but their hp bars are so low that they can not continue taking an objective.
37′ – At the end of a 4 minute baron dance, a skirmish finally breaks out and ALL barely wins it, 2-1 and finally secures the baron and a 4k gold lead, as the rest of Gambit flee to their base.
39′ – As Alliance prepare to siege the top-lane, Gambit are looking to pull of a cheeky maneuver and go for the opposing mid inhibitor turret. They do take it down, but Alliance react very well to it and engage on them with their beefy half-dragon protected by a Lulu shield and a Lulu ultimate. At the end of the skirmish, Wickd and crew come out ahead, 3-1 and take down the enemy mid inhibitor. One minute later, GMB decide to challenge the dragon call of Alliance, but get caught out, chased a bit around for a Quadra Kill on Froggen and an unofficial Penta by the end of the chase. Meanwhile, the super-minions were doing ALL’s bidding and were taking down the Gambit base. Froggen and crew are very happy with this win as they end the week 3-1, while Gambit is now at 1-2 with one more game left to play.
