Day 2 of the playoffs was a match of David and Goliath, with the undefeated LMQ up against middle-of-the-pack LoLPro. The winner of this match advanced to the grand finals against Curse Academy and the loser will grab up the third place spot.

 

Match 1 - Team LoLPro vs LMQ Tc iBuyPower


In game 1 LoLPro started off with a typical four-man push in the top lane while LMQ preferred to send Mor to hold off the push with ackerman, resulting in a one for one in towers with Vasilii solo pushing bottom. LMQ managed to pick up the first blood on Hoodstomp, but LoLPro quickly fired back with a kill onto Vasilii soon after. What was an even game very quickly became a one-sided stomp as LMQ went for dragon, picking up both the objective and four kills. They also managed to pick up an ace within the next few minutes. A final ace, resulting in a triple kill for Vasilii, results in a 23-minute surrender from LoLPro.

As game 2 kicked off2v2 in the bottom lane breaks the four-man push meta with LoLPro’s Hoodstomp coming out ahead in early farm. However, an early gank from LMQ NoName results in a first blood, allowing Vasilii to bring back the lane. A gank from XiaoWeiXiao’s Twisted Fate in the top lane also allowed ackerman to take control of his lane. A victorious team fight at dragon for LMQ makes the gold lead almost insurmountable, and LoLPro again surrenders at 21 minutes.
