Lower Bracket Finals Recap

Machi Esports vs Taipei J Team

Game 1

Both Junglers decided to go for multiple gank attempts throughout the early game. Despite this, neither have been able to successfully pull one off. Eventually, both junglers went for a gank, finding themselves in a skirmish in the top lane with Gemini’s Graves securing first blood and Hana’s Lillia answering back with a kill of their own. Meanwhile, M1ssion found himself in a very comfortable position as he had a 20 CS lead over Nestea. MCX’s gold lead kept growing slowly. As a result, they were able to snowball further and secure all 3 Dragons during the early and mid-game. Despite this, JT was still fighting back strongly as they matched MCX through constant skirmishes but due to their huge deficit, MCX was still able to win the fight for the Dragon Soul and Baron. Not long after, JT found themselves unable to defend their base from MCX. Machi Esports took the first game of the series.

Game 2

JT decided to draft themselves a skirmishing comp to get an advantage over the early to mid-game phase. Meanwhile, MCX went for a late-game composition featuring Ornn and Kassadin. MCX started the game with a successful gank from Gemini onto the bot lane with Bruce securing first blood. The early game went back and forth between these two teams as they kept answering each other with kills. However, MCX found themselves with a huge gold lead due to Bruce picking up 2 kills and a 30 cs lead over Lilv. In addition, they managed to grab every tower plate and the first turret gold bonus. Even so, JT tried to keep up the pressure as they kept matching MCX with kills. Unfortunately for JT, Bruce’s lead became apparent during the fight for the Herald as he picked up the triple kill while his team secures the objective. Moments later, JT got an important pick onto MCX’s bot laners which allowed them to start a Baron attempt. The remaining members of MCX decided to run interference. M1ssion was able to get a double kill before getting taken down. Despite this, JT was still able to secure Baron. Later on, a teamfight broke out in the mid lane when MCX managed to get a pick onto Woody which led them trying to go for Baron. Shortly after, the remaining members of JT tried to contest but they are too little too late as MCX had already secured Baron. This led to JT getting wiped out. With no one left to defend their base, MCX went straight for the Nexus to take the series lead 2-0.

Game 3

Both teams decided to draft comfortable team compositions for game 3. The early game was uneventful as both teams played passively. Eventually, MCX came out with the early game lead due to multiple members taking tower plates on their own during a fight for the Drake. As the game progressed, a skirmish happened in the mid lane with MCX coming out on top. They were able to take 3 kills which caused their lead to grow further. Despite their best efforts, JT found themselves in a horrible position falling behind with one kill to nine and a six thousand gold deficit. As a result. MCX started to look unstoppable. Given that, MCX secured Baron with no contest. They decided to go straight for the enemy base while picking up champion kills along the way. They took the Nexus and the series win 3-0. Machi Esports advances to the Grand Finals to face PSG Talon.
