This 2017 Worlds story is brought to you by Predator.

Misfits secured Europe’s first win at the League of Legends World Championship with a dominant victory over Taiwan’s Flash Wolves earlier today.

Fresh off a devastating loss to Team WE, Misfits came into day three of Worlds hungry for a win—though they were certainly not favorites against Flash Wolves, who almost beat TSM yesterday.

But Misfits quickly proved their naysayers wrong.  

Misfits dominated Flash Wolves through great macro play for the entirety of the game. Misfits were always first to objectives and used crisp rotations to find easy kills. They couldn’t be stopped.

Misfits AD carry Steven “Hans sama” Liv shredded Flash Wolves during teamfights as Kog’maw. Coupled with a Janna and Orianna to protect him, Hans sama was Misfits mini cannon, showering Flash Wolves with his Bio-Arcane Barrage. While Flash Wolves did a good job to slow Misfit’s push with constant wave clear, it just delayed their inevitable demise.

Misfits and Flash Wolves return to the Rift on Oct. 8, where they face TSM and Team WE respectively.
