Lower Bracket Round 2 Day 2 Recap

ahq eSports vs Berjaya Dragons

Game 1

We go into the game with AHQ drafting a heavy engage composition with Nautilus, Camille and Ekko. Meanwhile, BJD chose to opt for a pick composition featuring Ashe, Syndra and Leona. Things started looking great for BJD as Azhi was able to secure first blood in a 1v1 against Leaky. Given this, Enso was able to secure an early Mountain drake. A huge teamfight erupts in a Rift Herald attempt by BJD trying to cement their lead further. Uniboy lands a crucial Show Stopper onto multiple members of BJD which consequently led to AHQ winning the fight. As a result, AHQ was able to equalize the gold difference in 10 minutes. Despite an undesirable early game, Leaky still managed to get the advantage over Azhi in the top lane. As BJD was losing pressure on the top side of the map, AHQ collapses onto the bottom lane and secures four kills. As a result, AHQ was able to take the outer and inner turret of the bottom lane. The two teams went back to back in constant skirmishes with each side refusing to back down. Eventually, AHQ goes for the Baron with BJD trying to contest. Unfortunately, the odds didn’t go in BJD’s favor as AHQ secures the Baron and a five thousand gold lead. The final teamfight took place at BJD’s inhibitor turret, AHQ marches strong and conquers the teamfight convincingly and subsequently winning the first game of the series.

Game 2

Both teams decided to play a passive early game. Although, AHQ managed to secure an Infernal drake just 5 minutes into the game. As Enso attempts to go for a gank onto the bottom lane, both top laners started channeling their teleport. Unfortunately, Wako dies before either teleport gets completed. In addition, Leaky finds himself in an undesirable situation by being isolated with four members of the enemy team. AHQ goes for the Rift Herald when a skirmish breaks out. They managed to win the trade four for two but unfortunately, BJD was able to steal the Rift Herald. BJD immediately uses the Rift Herald on the top lane and secures the outer turret. As a result, K2 was able to get the first tower gold and all five turret platings. BJD continues to siege on the top lane to take the inner turret. On the other hand, AHQ opted to trade it out for their second drake and the outer turret in the bottom lane. Different skirmishes broke out during the mid-game which eventually led to a fight at Baron. BJD won the teamfight which resulted in securing Baron. As BJD sieges the bottom lane, AHQ decides to take their third dragon. Meanwhile, BJD continues to push onto the nexus turrets. Fortunately for AHQ, they managed to stop BJD with the Nexus surviving with a sliver of health. AHQ refused to give up and went to take Baron. Unfortunately for them, BJD decided to go all in at the middle lane and win the teamfight, closing the game and tying the series 1-1.

Game 3

AHQ started things off by subbing out Leaky for Ziv. AHQ decided to draft a poke composition with Ezreal and Jayce. Meanwhile, BJD drafted the likes of Ornn and Senna for long range engages. A 2v2 skirmish comes up early just two minutes into the game as both AD Carries traded kills with Wako securing first blood. Things started to look bleak for BJD as they got aced at the seven-minute mark after attempting to secure their first drake. Constant skirmishes broke out during the rest of the early game and throughout the mid-game. Although, AHQ is doing a better job of allocating most of their resources onto Wako’s Ezreal. Eventually, the game started to break open after AHQ secured their first baron. They begin to take multiple towers and BJD tries to fight back but AHQ seemed unstoppable. It was the final teamfight when Kongyue was able to get a Pentakill. As a result, AHQ was able to close out the game and take the series lead 2-1.

Game 4

The game started with both teams drafting very comfortable picks until BJD picked up Quinn to counter Ziv’s Renekton. The early game went well for BJD as Enso was able to conduct 2 successful ganks on both the top and bottom lane. Given this, BJD was able to ace the whole team of AHQ just eight minutes into the game. As a result, BJD had an advantage of seven kills to zero deaths and a 4.3k gold lead at fifteen minutes. Despite all this, AHQ was still able to grab every drake. In the fight for the 3rd drake, AHQ gets a huge shutdown gold from Minji and was able to secure the drake. BJD was then able to prevent AHQ from getting an ocean soul on the 4th drake. However, things started turning sour for BJD in the contest for the fifth drake as AHQ manages to get the Ocean soul and the teamfight win. Following this, AHQ starts the baron with BJD attempting to contest. Despite that, AHQ was still able to secure Baron. It was the last teamfight that took place at BJD’s bottom lane inhibitor when AHQ demolished the rights of BJD, winning the teamfight and closing out the game to win the series 3-1.
