On the blue side, Millenium ban Yasuo, Lucian, LeBlanc and pick Shyvana, Khazix, Ryze, Sivir and Leona. Facing them is the Supa Hot Crew on the purple side, who ban Gragas, Ziggs, Lulu and pick Renekton, Evelynn, Orianna, Caitlyn and Thresh.
Interesting fact about the game is that MIL is running double TP on Ryze and Shyvana. They initiate a lane swap, which also enables the buff exchange for the two teams during the late invade. In the first part of the game, the bot-duos face the respective opposing top laners in 2v1’s and with the jungler’s help they both go for the 3-man lane pushes. Both lane turrets go down and the trios recall after reaching each other’s inhibitor turrets. 6 minutes in, MIL starts fighting the dragon, but SHC decide to contest it. A flash and flay by Thresh gets SHC 2 kills for 1 as both teams disengage the dragon fight. First Blood is secured by Migxa on Thresh, who is definitely off to a better start than in the previous game. 2 minutes later, SHC group near dragon once again in order to secure the objective. They start the fight, but MIL decide to contest and Shyvana teleports in. SHC comes out on top however, as they secure the drake and also win the skirmish that followed, 3-2. At this point, the gold lead is 2k in favor of SHC, who was also looking solid in terms of CS. Shortly after the 10 minute mark, the numbers were showing 47-61 in the top lane, 67-73 in mid and 74-69 in the bot lane.
SHC stays focused on objectives and moves as a group of 4 to down the outer mid turret. After securing that objective, they rotate top 13 minutes in. On his way to the team, Thresh is caught out of position in the river by MIL, who came to defend. This ultimately gives MIL 3 kills for none. SHC takes a breather shortly after, as they move to dragon and secure it, because MIL reacts too late. At the 15 minute mark, Caitlyn is pinned down in the mid lane by Leona and Ryze, who easily take the kill. MIL target Caitlyn once again as soon as he is back, this time in the bot lane. They dive onto the Sheriff of Piltover at the turret, but Leona falls as well due to Mr. Rallez using barrier. Meanwhile in the top lane, Sivir is defending the turret against Evelynn and Renekton. The double TP comes in, but SHC rotate Orianna and Thresh to the rescue and manage to come out on top with 2 kills. 20 minutes in, MIL get off a good engage near dragon, kill 3 members of SHC and secure the objective. After downing the mid and bot outer turrets, they dive onto Caitlyn once again and manage to kill the bot inner turret. MIL ends up paying with the lives of Kha’zix and Ryze for the overly aggressive assault. SHC now venture into MIL’s jungle and spot Leona. The pick-off looks advantageous at first, but the time they take to kill the support allows MIL to group and TP. The fight goes 4-2 in favor of MIL, the scoreboard now showing 16-11, one of the most dynamic games in the EU LCS so far.
24 minutes in, MIL pressures the mid lane with all 5 members, they catch Orianna off-guard and take the kill as well as the inner turret in mid. Since dragon is respawning soon, MIL back off in order to secure vision near the objective. SHC follows and fights them in the jungle and both teams lose a member, but SHC are forced back and MIL take the dragon uncontested. Following a hard fought vision war, MIL gets the positional advantage and they collapse on SHC in the enemy jungle with Sivir’s ultimate. The fight looked good at first for Rallez and crew, but SHC loses 2-4. Being too low to challenge the baron, MIL recalls and the dance begins anew. SHC think they got a pick on Kha’zix and try to take him down quickly, but the rest of MIL collapse on them and although they exterminate the bug, they get ACED and SHC lose the mid inhibitor turret and the inhibitor itself. The purple team now decides to storm down mid lane instead of continuing the baron dance, but get engaged upon by MIL from the back as they approach from baron and MIL barely get out ahead in the skirmish that followed, 2-1. After the three dead heroes return to life, the 2 teams retake their positions around baron. Having a superior vision control in the enemy jungle, MIL has an easy time finding a pick on thresh, getting 2 more kills on Renekton and Orianna and finally killing Nashor. With the baron buff on, MIL turns to take down Evelynn as well, they down the mid inhibitor and ultimately take the game after barely 35 minutes. A decisive end to the game as the battle towards the bottom of the standings gets more and more intense!
