HKE pushed confidently into MSE this game, and they had a few close calls with giving First Blood. But after their early two-kill lead, they quickly took dragon and again pressed their advantage for a few more kills and two Rift Heralds. HKE was able to out-rotate MSE for a 20-minute inhibitor.

First blood: Apex LoL Lissandra with Dreamer LoL Nautilus and Taizan LoL Rek'Sai on has slain Westdoor LoL Diana at 7:31

Machi was able to stay pretty far ahead of ahq for the first half of the game, as Taizan‘s ganks on bottom lane resulted in early kills and a dragon, while Mountain‘s ganks on Bobo were neutralized by Bobo‘s ultimate, Keeper’s Verdict. However, Machi completely flopped when they clustered to kill the Baron Nashor: Apex lost a quarter of his health from Baron’s auto attacks, and Dreamer was back behind Baron when the team-fight began. Ziv‘s Pillar of Ice trapped Machi in the Baron pit while AN poked them with substantial damage; Dreamer used his Depth Charge on Westdoor, which was countered with Zhonya’s Hourglass. Apex was chased out and killed by Ziv, while AN was free to attack Machi from the side. Ahq was then able to ace Machi and finish off the Baron, evening out the game. At around 35 minutes, Machi started a team-fight in a jungle path, bottlenecking themselves and losing all but Bobo. From there, the game was all ahq’s.
