First blood: Mountain LoL Graves with AN LoL Ezreal and Albis LoL Alistar on has slain SwordArT LoL Morgana at 3:33

This game saw much more action, with ganks all over the map from both teams. Mountain’s ganks were more effective overall, while Karsa was far more reckless, chasing kills deep under turrets. Flash Wolves had a couple of big shutdowns, but Mountain’s constant map pressure from his early-game ganks were too much for them to recover, even after sweeping ahq in a 5-0 teamfight.

Though Cougar started off ahead with a first blood kill, HK Esports had a highly mobile team composition with better disengage in their team composition and slipped through their fingers. Cougar’s positioning was highly lacking, and Dinter’s global presence often caught Cougar off-guard, which helped clinch a second win for HKES this season.

HKES also took an inhibitor turret at 21:28, a good sign of a steamroll.
