  • LOUD 1-0 Fnatic
  • Beyond Gaming 0-1 DetonatioN FocusMe
  • Evil Geniuses 1-0 Chiefs Esports Club
  • Chiefs Esports Club 0-1 Beyond Gaming

LOUD gaming pulled off a striking upset against Fnatic early, with Brance and his 'Bot Gap' callout at the helm. Prioritising the Miss Fortune and Amumu combo that has worked for them so well, Fnatic's bot-lane was simply outclassed.

DFM pulled off a nail-biting win against rivals BYG to draw level with them in Group A. The game came down to the wire, but infernal soul and Baron finally allowed them to bring home the win. Yutapon's Kai'sa was a sight to behold, finishiing 12/3/11.

  • MAD Lions 1-0 Saigon Buffalo
  • Royal Never Give Up 1-0 Isurus
  • Royal Never Give Up 1-0 İstanbul Wildcats
  • Isurus 0-1 DRX

MAD Lions were able to pick up a very important win against SGB to continue to contest the top of their group. With both teams drafting for fights, it was MAD's execution that was superior. Elyoya on the Hecarim was the deciding factor in many skirmishes.

RNG was able to pick up 2 wins to draw level with MAD in Group B. Wildcats put up a fight, but ISG was just business as usual for RNG. The whole team stepped up to the plate, but Xiaohu in particular was a standout.
