After picks and bans are made and done two mighty contenders for the number one in Europe unfolds, kicking it off with a simple swap, YellOwstaR and reignover go to bottom lane to try to gank bottom lane what makes this interesting is that Huni knowing that he will be dived up top and instead of risking to die up top lane or try to get a dive kill on one of the H2K members or put all resources up top to fight the top lane dive. Instead YellOwstaR put down a ward to the 2nd tower for Huni to escape before the pending top lane dive and go in for a 4 man credit first blood Huni then looses CS up in the top lane, in order to mirror the affect onto the other team, he makes the bot lane minions die at tower so Fnatic are already ahead by by .5k (about 5 sight wards) of gold and making Rumble Not even have chance to come back with the Olaf presence in the jungle and Ryze combo in order to fight off this fear of Olaf, kaSing goes and wards about half the map but YellOwstaR keeping his distance but being a support god and taking down every ward kaSing put’s up every time rotation down in bot lane is finished. At the ten minute mark is about the time when H2K is tired of YellOwstaR winning the ward game and try to go in for drag knowing that both teams in this game need dragon in order to feed there poke based composition/triple treat in order to get back to even ground at the 20 minute mark, But then Fnatic come in to ward them into a a terror so H2K strike a idea to curve around the jungle to kill Febiven to make all of Fnatic’s warding useless to get control of dragon but then Fnatic punish the play by getting them while they are low and getting a 2 for 1 (almost 2) advantage to regain control of dragon.
Nearly going into the 14 minute Huni knowing that H2K and Corki we’re preoccupied with dragon to go and ward bot lane bushes to kill Hjarnan To make thing’s worse, Odoamne uses TP to bot lane in order to make it a 1 for 1 trade….While Fnatic are knocking on the 2nd top lane turret, so another .5k gold lead for fnatic over and over has made them ahead by 4k gold, at about 18 minutes and 30 seconds into the game is where H2K have the chance to ward up and get dragon control while Fnatics AD carry rekkles is farming bottom lane but its as fast as it is gained as it is lost, When Reignover and YellOwstaR and Rekkles come back with swapping lens But then H2K has vision on them while they are taking the wards down and start poking fnatics roster down, To the point where Febiven had to go back to base to get health ( And get Ionian boots of lucidity)
While H2K is swapping off all of Fnatic’s ward’s Huni uses his last sight ward to try to steal dragon and reignover joins him…..And gets a very lucky axe steal on dragon granting Fnatic 5% movement speed and taking away the chance of H2K getting 8% extra damage on Ap and AD stats That is ideal for a poke based team like H2K, at 25 minutes and 29 seconds is when rekkles took down a ward at baron that should have been a clue to loulex and Odoamne not to go near the bush behind red and get 2 for 0 and a baron, Around 31 minutes and 19 seconds is where you see Ryu going alittle too far at of his base and then he gets dived on 1v5 at mid lane setting up Fnatic siege and going on to kill the other 4 member of H2K ( Nice flash Huni on Hjarnan) then at the 33 minute and 32 second mark you see rekkles above all his team member’s waiting to get varus ultimate in the face to die, ( I have no clue why he did not spell shield)Then at the 32 18 mark you start seeing H2K coming out of there base to try to ward up and you start seeing loulex getting caught that sets up another ‘Fnatic attack’ onto H2K but Varus q hurt and it started to go the other way until Janna ultimate came in and healed the AD carry and her team to get Jayce a triplekill and at the 35 minute and 32 second mark is where they took down the last nexus turret and then around 5 seconds later made Fnatic tie there record from 2013 GG and well played.
Key play of the game was the death bush play by Fnatic.- William The Holy Halo Wright
