ROX TIGERS: Smeb (Poppy) – Peanut (Elise) – Kuro (Viktor) – Pray (Caitlyn) – Gorilla (Karma)

SK TELECOM T1: Duke (Trundle) – Bengi (Olaf) – Faker (Oriana) – Bang (Ashe) – Wolf (Zyra)

Bans: Ryze, Ezreal, Syndra ; Nidalee Aurelion Sol - Jayce


Notably, both Syndra và Aurelion Sol were banned, not allowing either Faker or Kuro the option lớn dominate on them. But Faker still greatly impacted the game with his play on Oriana.

The action started heating up after the 13 minutes mark with two successful Teleport plays. Following two failed ganks by the ROX Tigers, Smeb TP’d behind an overextended Faker & chased hyên inlớn the bot river with the his team in tow. A quiông xã execution of Faker led to First Blood và the first Infernal Drake. But SKT responded by not only rolling their early game pressure inlớn the first turret kill in the midlane, but with an excellent TP. play by Duke in the bot jungle lớn kill Peanut.

The start of the mid game was marked by extremely tight fights with back-and-forth objective takes. With Peanut caught out in the bot lane, SKT pushed on khổng lồ take the bot turret. SKT took Pray và Gorilla off the map, but a roaming Kuro worked with Smeb khổng lồ take baông xã two kills. However, SKT were able to take the turret. As soon as both teams were fully spawned, they jockeyed for control over Infernal Drake. Smeb went in but his backline did little damage và the top laner fell. However, Peanut was able to lớn steal the Infernal and escape. Focus then turned khổng lồ the Baron.

The game opened up at the 27-minute mark. With vision control near Baron, Wolf was able lớn find a pick on Gorilla in the mid lane, allowing SKT lớn easily take Baron. ROX conceded và went for the third Infernal. SKT were able khổng lồ push down the outer turrets but failed khổng lồ do much on ROX’s base. SKT took control of the map, & with their piông chồng comp, it looked as though they would have sầu no problem holding control of the impending second Baron. But ROX were able to catch SKT off guard with a rapid rotation over lớn the Baron. Before SKT could react, ROX had already melted the objective sầu down.


Despite the mistake, SKT were able khổng lồ play the maps more effectively than ROX. With superior vision, Faker pushed the bot lane down khổng lồ take the first inner turret, và though Smeb and Kuro engaged to lớn nab a kill, Duke sat alone top lớn take the inner top turret. Knowing ROX were forced to be more defensive sầu, SKT started the Elder Dragon 42 minutes in. ROX were slow to lớn respond & Peanut was forced khổng lồ attempt a Smite steal. But it was Bengi who secured the objective sầu. A second after, Faker landed a massive sầu, debilitating Ultimate to take four kills and allowing SKT khổng lồ push for the win.

ROX TIGERS: Smeb (Rumble) – Peanut (Lee Sin) – Kuro (Karma) – Pray (Ashe) – Gorilla (Miss Fortune)

Bans: Aurelion Sol – Jayce – Jhin ; Syndra – Ryze – Nidalee

ROX Tigers shocked everyone in Madison Square Garden with a nigh unbelievable Miss Fortune piông xã for Gorilla. But the piông chồng seemed indicative of their buoyant spirits. Peanut laughed at his computer after a successful counter-gank top lane to grab the First Blood. A minute later, Smeb roamed bot và tower dove while deep in SKT territory. Despite a mombo line to escape, it was a successful play to kill both Wolf and Bang. And ROX justified the tư vấn piông chồng a few minutes later with a bot-lane wombo full bộ to lớn take out SKT’s duo.

It gave the team an advantage that rolled over to lớn a 12-minute Teleport play in the bot lane that led khổng lồ the first turret as well as SKT’s bot lane second-tier turret. SKT were able lớn respond by taking both the top và mid tier-ones, but in leveraging their bot-lane lead, ROX ended up with a 2K gold advantage. And at the 15-minute mark, SKT attempted lớn conkiểm tra the first Infernal Drake, but their disorganization led lớn disaster as they concede four deaths.

However, despite the exciting early game, ROX looked fairly anemic during the early portions of the mid game. SKT maintained control of their jungle và even nabbed a few picks. But at 27-minute mark, ROX were able lớn chunk Faker down enough lớn finally attempt Baron. SKT responded, but were hesitant to move sầu in; especially Blank who seemed indecisive when lớn move in. SKT’s jungler fell before the Baron was low enough, & Peanut was able to lớn secure the objective sầu. This led to a 4-for-2 teamfight win by ROX & an Inhibitor. In retreating, though, ROX forfeited four kills to lớn SKT.

It looked as though SKT made their way baông chồng inlớn the game, but in attempting to lớn push down top và mid, it opened up ROX to lớn sneak inlớn SKT’s base & push for Nexus. In what ended up being the most memorableplay of the game, Pray was able to lvà Ashe"sUltimate across the maps on a Teleporting Duke. It gave them enough time to continue pushing và finish the game off.Peanut laughed & hugged Smeb as ROX walked off the stage with their win.

If ain’t broke…

ROX Tigers went with the exact same team comp và again, they dominated the bot lane. Like a sweet science, Pray landed his Ashe Arrow on to Wolf & Gorilla followed up with Miss Fortune’s Ultimate, resulting in the First Blood. They had an identical solo kill two minutes later. Thirteen minutes in, they took the first turret lớn extkết thúc their team’s gold lead – though Faker kept it cthất bại with his typical lane dominance. And once again, ROX’s duo bot lane were able to transfer their power around the maps into the mid game.

SKT were managing lớn find consistent picks on Smeb in the top lane with the oppressive sầu slows between Duke’s Ekko & Blank’s Olaf. But a roaming Gorilla & Pray were able khổng lồ counter for the top lane tier-one turret. Pray simply put the team on his back by landing his Ashe Arrows with amazing consistency. Soon after the top-lane play, ROX began khổng lồ siege the mid lane turret at the 19-minute mark. Like clockwork, Pray dropped an Ultimate on Bang & helped pichồng up the kill as they took the crucial tier-one mid turret.

As the two teams postured for mid lane control around the 27-minute mark, Pray landed a crucial Arrow on someone not named Wolf: Faker. ROX subsequently blew up SKT’s best player & they rotated over khổng lồ Baron & took it, even getting Blank in the process.

Thirty-two minutes in, SKT decided khổng lồ pounce. With Pray and Smeb missing, Blank chased down three other members of ROX in the top lane. Kuro, Smeb and Gorilla fell, but despite facing down four members of SKT, Pray và Peanut turned it around. Pray’s fed Ashe, Hurricane in hvà, & Peanut’s slippery Lee Sin, Guardian Angel in hand, completed the Ace. With the maps control and severe gold lead, they melted down Baron minutes later, for Inhibitors in mid and top and with Baron-buffed Super Minions, ROX drowned SKT.

SK TELECOM T1: Duke (Gnar) – Bengi (Nidalee) – Faker (Zilean) – Bang (Jhin) – Wolf (Karma)

ROX TIGERS: Smeb (Rumble) – Peanut (Olaf) – Kuro (Viktor) – Pray (Ashe) – Gorilla (Zyra)

Bans:Miss Fortune – Jayce – Aurelion Sol ; Syndra – Ryze – Cassiopeia

SKT banning Miss Fortune after Game 2 và 3 wasn’t particularly surprising. However, ROX Tigers leaving up Nidalee for SKT lớn first pick certainly wasn’t expected. Nidalee has been 100% picked-and-banned throughout the tournament. She also boasts the second highest win percentage among muốn champions with more than six picks; she only sits behind Zyra. But Bengi, who sat out Game 2 và 3, has never played a competitive sầu Nidalee. Of course, it didn’t matter.

Bengi looked revitalized throughout the game, starting with a five-minute gank mid. Faker locked down Kuro behind ROX’s mid lane turret và Bengi followed up with a Nidalee Spear. Despite Peanut standing right behind Kuro, Bengi dove sầu the tower, secured the First Blood và escaped, no problem. As expected, the Nidalee piông xã helped apply pressure to all lanes, blowing Flashes whenever errant Spears emerged from the Fog of War. SKT’s overall tốc độ around the bản đồ led khổng lồ kills for Bang’s Jhin, which allowed them lớn begin encroaching inkhổng lồ ROX territory.

After the manic trò chơi 2 and 3, SKT seemed in control during the first 30 minutes of trò chơi 4. Twenty minutes in, SKT really began to pull ahead with a tower dive by Bengi in the top lane. Picking off Smeb, Bengi was then chased away by ROX, but the sufficiently ahead Bang Ulted on to Kuro, allowing Bengi khổng lồ assist in blowing up the midlaner. This led khổng lồ a Mountain Drake và more control on the bản đồ for SKT. But in spite of Bang, Faker & Bengi possessing positive sầu KDAs, SKT only led by 2K gold.

Much of the mid game was posturing for Baron, and it looked as though SKT may not be able khổng lồ find a big play to lớn open up the Baron. Instead of waiting late game & hoping for the right team fight, ROX decided to go for the risky Baron play. They were able to bait Smeb’s Teleport – perhaps the original plan – but Bang simply flashed inlớn ROX và picked off Gorilla. SKT then used their superior mobility lớn chase down for a kill on Kuro. As a bonus, during all of this, Duke was taking ROX’s bot Inhibitor. The game was lost from there, as SKT took total comm& of the Rift và finished ROX off with a 20-5 score.

In the final game of the series, SKT opted for a late-game team comp that would be at a disadvantage early. But each member of SKT stepped up lớn finish off the ROX Tigers and take the series 3-2.

The jungle battle between Peanut and Bengi became the focus early. First Blood arrived when Peanut managed khổng lồ sneak inkhổng lồ SKT’s jungle and catch out Bengi for the solo kill. But soon after, Bengi and Faker teamed up for an amazingly choreographed kill on Peanut. These back-and-forths defined the first trăng tròn minutes of the game, where each team matched each other, remaining even in kills và gold into the mid game.

But again, it was another risky Baron attempt by ROX that opened up the game. Bengi finally dove decisively inkhổng lồ the Baron pit to help take out Peanut và start the team fight off right. Smeb ended up securing the Baron, but SKT walked away with four kills for none, Duke with a triple kill.

Also of note: Syndra, Aurelion Sol và Jayce were banned through the first four games of the series, but with Bengi’s dominance on Nidalee & the target ban of Miss Fortune, one of them needed khổng lồ enter the fray. It was Jayce who made it through, & it was SKT who offered it up khổng lồ ROX’s Smeb. It felt like a dare: if you’re the best in the world, better than Faker, then carry with Jayce. Thirty minutes inkhổng lồ the game, Smeb sat at 1/2/3 while Duke held a dominating 5/0/0 KDA.

Smeb failed khổng lồ bởi vì much with the powerful poke of Jayce and Peanut stopped showing up with his Cocoons, while Faker evaded death và landed clutch Shockwaves và Duke effectively zoned with his Ultimate and dominated in team fights. At the forty-minute mark, SKT forced their way into lớn ROX’s base, taking the mid inner turret & the Inhibitor. But the poke from Pray, Smeb & Kuro was enough to lớn chunk SKT low và force them out. Smeb quickly Teleported behind them và looked poised to clean up all of the kills. But after missing a Shock Blast, he turned around và headed back khổng lồ base.

The series was well & done after that. SKT sauntered inkhổng lồ ROX’s base & wrapped up the series, moving on to the final of the League of Legends World Championships năm 2016.
