While Invictus Gaming (1-2, 3-6 match record) jumped ahead early in Game 1 with first blood and a 1,000-gold lead at nine minutes, EDward Gaming stayed within striking distance. IG’s pick composition did what it could to take out EDG mid laner Lee “Scout” Ye-chan’s Taliyah, but clutch roams from support Tian “Meiko” Ye’s Tahm Kench saved Scout several times, leading to EDG kills. EDG’s late-game teamfighting/pick composition shined as things progressed, picking up a 4-for-1 at 20 minutes to secure the first Baron of the series. Using the buff to build up a 5,500-gold lead at 25 minutes, EDG looked unstoppable as it took a second Baron kill at 29 minutes, dominating the neutral objectives with an additional three Elemental Drakes throughout the game. Scout was a monster late in the game, from using the Weaver’s Wall to give EDG positional advantages to dealing a game-high 26,900 damage to enemy champions en route to a perfect 3/0/12 KDA (kills/deaths/assists) for 100 percent kill participation. Using the second Baron buff, EDG strolled into IG’s base and took Game 1 in 34 minutes.
