Game 2 is here as we see Team SoloMid with the dominant first game after a few wicked ults from Dyrus. Can Curse break their own curse and tie it up at 1-1 or will they lose the series in a 0-2 fail?

Game 2 starts us off as we see a sneaky tactic from TSM; going for an early invade near bot lane, Curse detects this, but the Bay Life team scares away Curse from the blue buff. The denial of the buff from Saintvicious puts TheOddOne ahead from the offset. Early game pressure by TSM as we see 3 pots sitting on Graves; The entire TSM team has used their pots early as we see Curse sitting on 7 pots total between mid and bot lane. SaintVicious kills Dyrus, despite trying to give the kill to Nyjacky. Nyjacky wandered top but he didn't get anything out of it; Dyrus ran into the turret before Nyjacky could kill him; Reginald and Nyjacky's gold difference is quite a large amount, nearly 1k, as we see Reginald delete SaintVicious near mid with a quick 1-2 punch to seal the deal.
The kills are tied up at 3:3 despite Curse slipping a bit, giving TSM the upperhand on player location and map control. Almost nothing going on except rotations around the map and a few stray gank attempts now and then, as the topfragger of either team is at 2 kills. Reginald ahead in creeps at mid by 45, significant number when being a creeper like him. SaintVicious tries to down Reginald after popping out of the grass, but fails to do so as Reginald flashes and Curse fails yet again to take a kill off TSM. Once again we see Curse 2 towers to 0 as they're down 2.5k gold as the clock ticks to 16:30.
Reginald winning the game for TSM; Dyrus pops an ult off as the maelstrom spell lands some wicked AoE damage onto Curse, insta-KO'ing 3 players, allowing TSM to push quickly into the inner-depths of Curse's mid lane. Double kill for Reginald and Dyrus as Dyrus falls; a nice 4:1 exchange as Chaox was left untouched, auto-attacking the entire engagement. A final push and a destruction of Curse's base calls for a quick GG from Curse as TSM moves it up 2-0.
