LOL: TLR Vs KappaKappaKappa

League of LegendsOne of the closest games  so far in the tournament , relatively even with only minor gold diferences until  they hit the late game at 40 minutes , where the differences in team comp start to shine through. The late game hyper carry marksman of Vayne, combined with  the Wombo Combo of Wukong and Yasuo allow TLR to edge out an advantage and push into the base taking out the first inhibitor of the game,.
While TLR back away to heal and buy after the assault on KAPs base, KAP take the opportunity to grab a dragon, but just as they manage to take it  MiNi iLunatic is caught out. With a baron on 4 members of KAP, TLR are reluctant to engage, although with super minions hitting the Nexus turrets of KappaKappaKappa the game is now fully in TLR’s control

The final team fight happens in the toplane, , where TLR manage to execute the  AOE combo with Yasuo’s ultimate hitting the nexus. With only Tattooed Otaku left alive KAP are unable to defend the nexus and The Last Resort Take home a win.

The MVP of this match has to go to Smudgecat with his toplane Yasuo. Finishing the game with over 400 CS, the lack of a tank in the TLR line up did not matter with the lead they managed to pull, and Yasuo had a much greater impact than his lane opponent in the mid to late game.

LOL: team car accident Vs M&M

League of Legendsteam car accident vs M&M


Heading into a standard lane setup, right from the outset the tempo of the game is controlled by the jungler of both teams, with MVP Winter taking an edge in his ganks due to volatile Pantheon ganks with the targeted Aegis of Zeonia stun and Aegis Protection shield to help tower dive.

team car accident

  • Ereptor - Heimerdinger
  • MVP Winter - Pantheon
  • RatCheeseDoom - Gragas
  • Skylyz - Caitlyn
  • Leemi - Alistar

M&M

  • Firdelore - Nasus
  • KappaZeeef - Vi
  • Budy - Oriana
  • NickyG - Varus
  • Rasta Amiiez0r - Thresh

After a close duel in the midlane with RatCheeseDoom edging out a lead over Budy, tca take the first dragon of the game, which in addition to the score of 8 - 2 in their favour equates to a very early 5k gold lead. By the 18 minute mark this is extended to a 10k gold lead with the help more dragons and a very early baron.
Using the global presence from Grand Skyfall and the teleport on Heimer, tca rotate around the map to systematically take the majority of the turret, really pushing their advantage and leaving Molotovs & Marshmallows no room to come back. tcs push into the M&M base at 25 minutes, and while M&M try and repel the assault with everything they have left, tca are just too far ahead and take away a convincing first win of the day!

MVP : MVP Winter on Pantheon, with potent ganks snowballing the game from the beginning, allowing all of his laners to take an early advantage in lane.
