Moving into game 2, Black will hope to perform well again early in the game and this time maintain that performance into the later stages of the game. Blaze on the other hand will look to maintain their perfect record so far in this Arena without having dropped one game yet.* Azubu Blaze Bans: Malphite, Rumble, Shen
* Black Bans: Vladimir, Graves, Ahri
* Blaze Picks: Nocturne, Janna, Karthus, Ashe, Jax
* Black Picks: Alistar, Shyvana, Morgana, Ezreal, Yorick
An invasion from Black goes horribly wrong, as Cpt Jack cleanses the dark binding perfectly allowing his team to turn the fight in his favour. Reaperd picked up 3 early kills allowing him to start at top lane with 2 Dorans Blades. Cpt Jack also picked up a kill for Blaze, whilst Black's only kill went to Alvik. With a 4-1 lead before minions had even spawned it already looks bleak for Black. At 6 minutes a tower dive at top gives Reaperd his 4th kill on a champion with insane late game scaling.
A big fight starts at the wraiths of Blaze sees Black picking up some kills before the response from Blaze brings a 4 for 3 exchange in favour of Blaze, as Reaperd gets another 2 kills taking his tally up to 6. A fight at Dragon starts shortly after with Blaze furthering their lead with 3 more kills and no deaths. 11 minutes into the game Reaperd had 8 kills already, as the game looks all but over.
Black finally forces a favourable fight in the top lane getting kills on Reaperd and Cpt Jack, picking up some nice spree gold. Reaperd comes back from this death with a 13 minute Trinity Force, displaying his dominance over this game. With an almost unheard of 9k lead by 15 minutes, Blaze look like they are storming to victory, pushing down multiple towers of team Black. 3 more kills for Blaze allow them to take down the bottom inhibitor turret of Black by 16 minutes.
At 18 minutes Blaze force a 1 for 1 trade and take the inhibitor of Black whilst they had to go back to heal. A minute later and another push from Blaze on the middle turrets allows for Cpt Jack to pick up a free triple kill making their extreme early aggression pay off. A 20 minute Baron is taken by Blaze with an unbelievable 18k gold lead with Blaze having 26 kills to the 9 of Black. Blaze push down the remaining inhibtors of team Black, ending the game at 21 minutes with a dominant performance in game 2.
Black will be looking to game 3 with hopes of lasting a little longer at the very least, since this game proved to be incredibly one sided. Reaperd was the obvious MVP for Blaze in that match, with Black having little answer for his Jax play once he got ahead.
