On the blue side again, C9 ban Dr. Mundo, Nocturne, LeBlanc and pick Jax, Elise, Twisted Faith, Caitlyn and Morgana. On the pruple side, TSM do not want to lose 3-0, ban Soraka, Lucian, Kha’zix and pick Renekton, Evelynn, Nidalee, Graves and Karma.
2′ – Standard lanes once again, Cloud 9 is not afraid of facing TSM straight out.
10′ – Two turrets down for each team, as TSM get the top and mid outer turrets and C9 get the mid and the bot ones.
10′ – The CS count shows domination for TSM’s solo laners: top 64 – 90, mid 67-93 and a small lead for Senaky in the bot-lane, 85-77.
12′ – It is TSM who takes the first dragon of the game, same as in every match of the series.
19′ – Dragon goes to TSM again, but C9 invest 3 people in the top-lane and kill Dyrus. TSM tries to respond by taking down the bot inner tower with 4 people but C9 gets the mid inner turret down.
21′ – TSM make a great play grouping up as 5 in the top-lane, take the inner turret down, but C9 are able to answer once again with the bot inner turret and another kill on Dyrus who went to defend against 2 people. Every single play TSM try to make gets answered right back from C9.
25′ – TSM start off the dragon but do not have vision of C9 and are yet again hesitant and thanks to a decisive engage from C9, they manage to break up the team get themselves 2 kills and take the dragon for themsevles. Another big out-play from C9 who punish TSM’s lack of coordination.
31′ – Bjergsen loses a 1v duel to Balls’ Jax and without the threat of Nidalee, the rest of C9 collapse on TSM in the mid-lane, winning the trade by a mile, 4-1 and take down the mid inhibitor, before returning to baron and securing that objective. They do not stop there, take the dragon as well, find another pick on Bjergsen and down the bot-inhibitor too before finally going back to spend their humongous amount of gold, C9 was 12k ahead at that time.
35′ – When they come back, they simply push in the top-lane and end the game, not before ACE-ing their opponents one last time. The third game was a bit more even than the previous two, but TSM have their worked cut off for them if they want to stop getting stomped on by C9 in the next split. Congratulations to Cloud 9, who are North America’s Spring Split Champions and will get to represent their region at the All-Star Invitational in Paris next month, as they hope to gather more international experience for the upcoming World Championships in September.
