TSM decides to have a little fun by banning Teemo and Malzahar and picking Mordekaiser and Master Yi both aren't used a lot in competitive play. On the European side, Karma got picked as the support, dubbed by many as one of the most useless supports out there. Game 2 looks more like a solo queue game rather than a tournament one, we're in for a lot of fun.
Both teams start of defensive again but the lanes look quite odd, in the top we have Riven versus Alistar and Ezrael which is acceptable but than in the mid it's AD Urgot against AP Yi and bot lane we have Mordekaiser going head to head with Karma and AP Tristana. A 3v1 dive top on Riven confirms the kill and the tower, already starting the ball of snow even with some troll picks. As TSM's botlane goes back top they gank Urgot who only has flash to escape, easy kill. The arrogance of Solomid blows back in there face because of both Dyrus and Reginald pushing the top lane way to far, giving Black 2 free kills.
The Solo queue match isn't quite as dominant for TSM as last game, they're even on kills but the gold lead is still in favor of the American powerhouse. While Black have a much easier time they don't have the synergy and cohesion of an established team to withhold TSM from slowly closing this game out. Black however aren't giving up without a fight and because TSM are trolling, they forgot to ward baron and gave it away without a fight. Probably the wrong call because the first real team fight is an ace for Black who only lost 1 for it. They're even on towers now and TSM might want to try and play a bit serious if they still want to win. They take it to heart and with some nice mindreading of Xpecial they're able to win a team fight.
TSM are ready for the baron dance while the first engagement didn't go to well since Chaox got burst down, the 2nd round saw Chaox surviving the whole way through, getting a Forfait score and taking the baron. The next objective for TSM is ending the game which works out thanks to a nice engage from Xpecial who's been performing really well throughout this MLG. They blew up Svenskeren in nothing more than a second. The retreating Black players couldn't defend the nexus from the moving up opponents which saw them losing 6 Elo.
