TSM sweep Immortals, move on to face CLG in final

IMT vs TSM Coming into this game, fans and critics alike were


IMT vs TSM Coming into this game, fans and critics alike were expecting a very one sided match with Immortals fans feeling pretty safe and secure and TSM fans sitting on the edge of their seats with sweating palms. Game 1 Immortals are nothing if not confident and this certainly shone through in their draft picking. They started with a high risk triple AD carry comp with Huni on Lucian in the toplane against Hauntzer’s tanky Maokai. It is fair to say that these feelings were justified for the first half of game 1 with Immortals being up 7 kills to 0 at the 23 minute mark. The kills featured a great Gragas play from Reignover when he body slammed in front of Sven’s Graves ultimate, saving Pobelter’s life and netting the team a kill at the same time. However as the game went later and TSM picked up some steam, Hauntzer managed to start stacking armour items and became a real problem for IMT. Svenskeren also had a very strong performance on his jungle Graves as did Yellowstar on Braum. TSM managed to show impressive resilience and closed out the game after a decisive teamfight in the toplane. Game 2 Game 2 got off to a similar start to game 1. Bjergsen confidently locked in his signature Zed before Pobelter, no doubt with a smirk on his face, locked in Urgot. Urgot is a champion who saw some play last year after rising to prominence as a hard Zed counterpick, however he fell out of favour and back into obscurity after a short while having not been playing professionally in a long time. It got off to a good start for Pobelter, as he picked up 2 kills on the roam, and a third in the dragon pit shortly after. TSM managed to pull out the win as Huni’s Gangplank was shut completely out of the game through some solo plays from Bjergsen and some ganks from Sven’s Nidalee who was also huge this game. Game 3 With the team on the ropes, IMT reverted back to a less experimental teamcomp, and back to a more traditional Immortals playstyle. Graves, Rek Sai and Lissandra were the champions of choice, for Huni, Reignkmover and Pobelter against Maokai , Lee Sin and Corki and Hauntzer, Sven and Bjergsen. The game had a close midgame, with IMT showing resiliance and comfort on their champions. IMT ran into a similar problem to the one they encountered in game 1; they didn’t have an answer to armour stacking, and Hauntzer’s Maokai went huge. Hauntzer was a big performer over the entire series, but it was impressive to see how cohesively TSM has worked as a unit and how headstrong they have stayed even when behind. They closed out the Game 3 in just under 44 minutes and will go on to face CLG in the finals in Vegas.
