LB Round 2 day 1 recap

Taipei J Team vs Nova Esports

Game 1

First blood was taken just three minutes into the game by Nova Esports when Ryan’s Sejuani went for a gank in the top lane. As a result, Rockky’s Renekton claimed first blood and secured lane advantage against Rest’s Volibear. However, we didn’t see any counter measure from J Team towards the other parts of the map. Given this, NOV was able to take the Mountain Drake and the Rift Herald without contest. Just as when NOV looked like they had control of the game, their three man tower dive attempt onto Nestea’s Orianna unfortunately didn’t go in their favor. Nestea was able to survive with a sliver of health and turn the fight around taking the skirmish win of one to none. It was the teamfight contesting the third drake when Nestea’s Orianna hit a massive Shockwave onto two members of NOV. Because of this, JT was able to secure the drake and increase their gold lead to five thousand. JT’s better teamfighting helped them secure the Cloud soul which lead them to continue beating NOV before closing out the game in 35 minutes. They take the series lead 1-0.

Game 2

NOV went for lane dominant draft with a Lucian in the top lane alongside Xayah and Rakan in the bottom lane. Meanwhile, JT decided to go for an engage-heavy composition by picking Gragas, Wukong and Nautilus. NOV’s draft certainly aimed to conquer the early game with their multiple lane bullies. However, JT’s better laning phase and vision control allowed Hana’s Gragas to execute multiple successful counter ganks. As a result, JT was able to reduce the early game impact of NOV’s draft and even secure three drakes. The crucial baron fight happened 24 minutes into the game. NOV tied to disengage but Rest’s Wukong annihilated Nova Esports’ backline. Afterwards, JT secured the baron buff and snowballed their lead from there. They continued to pummel NOV in successive fights on the way to winning the game. JT increase their series lead to 2-0.

Game 3

JT drafted another engage-heavy composition by picking Sett and Volibear. On the other hand, Nova Esports went for a standard front to back composition, backing it up with an Azir and Caitlyn pick. NOV’s early game wasn’t looking good because Ryan’s Sylas died twice within the game’s first three minutes. Additionally, Hana counter-jungled Ryan and stole many of his camps. As a result, JT secured a two thousand gold lead in just four minutes. The gold difference just kept growing as JT took advantage of their lead and secured all the objectives. This lead to easy teamfight wins for JT as they steamrolled NOV and ended the series in dominant fashion. JT complete their sweep of Nova Esports, winning the series 3-0. They now advance to the third round of the lower bracket.
