Kwangdong Freecs versus Buriram United Esports

Game 1

South Korea’s Kwangdong Freecs faced Thailand’s Buriram United Esports in the first match of the second day of the Icons 2022 Play-Ins. KDF got off to an early lead by securing the first two kills of the game. However, BRU were able to answer back shortly and score two kills themselves to even out the kill score. Soon after, a fight broke out in the Rift Herald. While KDF were able to secure the herald, BRU took one kill then proceeded to take the dragon in response. Later, KDF were able to take down three members of BRU to even out the score. Afterwards, they proceeded to take Baron Nashor but they couldn’t finish it quickly enough. While they were able to eventually secure the baron, the revived members of BRU were able to ace KDF. Then, BRU secured the Elder Dragon after an incredibly messy back and forth between both teams. Eventually, BRU took too much for KDF to overcome. With KDF’s base exposed, BRU were able to push through and take the victory in game one.

 

Game 2

Similarly to the first game, KDF leapt off to an early start against BRU. A fight that broke out near the blue side raptors ended with four members of BRU dead. Moreover, KDF were also able to secure the first dragon of the game. However, the battle shifted in BRU’s favor during the second dragon fight. They managed to take down multiple members of KDF before securing the game’s second dragon. Afterwards, BRU continued to get momentum after a fight near the middle lane. They managed to take down three members of KDF before moving on to secure the baron. With the power of the baron buff, BRU pressured multiple lanes and attempted to break into KDF’s base. Shortly after, BRU scored a clean ace over KDF in the dragon lane and closed out the series in a sweep.

 

Furious Gaming versus Nova Esports

Game 1

In the second match of the day, Argentine Furious Gaming took on Hong Kong team Nova Esports. Living up to their name, FG furiously attacked NV and scored multiple kills. However, despite trailing in kills, NV maintained the gold lead because of better objective control. Eventually, NV’s precise, surgical objective control helped them amass a gold and item lead too great for FG to overcome. After they secured the baron buff, NV couldn’t be stopped from finishing their dismantling of FG’s base to take game one.

Game 2

The second game of FG and NV started out similar to their first. FG focused heavily on skirmishes while NV focused on objective control. It seemed like dejavu when NV were amassing another gold lead despite trailing in kills. However, FG came up big in a fight over the elder dragon. They managed to score an ace against NV while securing the elder dragon’s boost for themselves. Eventually, FG secured the baron buff while the NV squad were distracted elsewhere. With the baron buff, FG were able to brute force their way into NV’s base for the win. Their victory here helped them force game three.

 

Game 3

In the final game of this match, NV switched up their game plan against FG. In previous games, it was FG who came out swinging as the aggressors. However, NV started out strong and in full force as they actively sought out fights. Their aggression was rewarded as they scored five kills and the first dragon, six minutes into the game. It seemed like NV could do no wrong during this game, as they had amassed a five-thousand gold lead within the first seven minutes. Later on, NV scored three kills onto FG in the baron lane at fourteen minutes then proceeded to take down Baron Nashor. Shortly after, NV pressured FG from all lanes then closed out the game to win the match.

 

Flash Wolves versus Game Lord

Game 1

The third match of day two of the Icons 2022 Play-Ins was between the Flash Wolves, and Game Lord. The Flash Wolves jumped to an early lead by taking the first turret and scoring multiple kills against GLD. Afterwards, they took the Rift Herald and scored additional kills to get an early four-thousand gold lead. FW’s dragon laner Chiu “Bruce” Chih-Chun’s Kai’Sa got off to a monstrous start. Bruce kept picking off multiple members of GLD and accounted for 70% of his team’s kills in the first eight minutes of the game. With their carry so far ahead, FW kept pushing the tempo against GLD. They used their early lead to snowball into taking more kills and objectives. By the 15-minute mark of the game, FW were ahead by nearly nine-thousand gold and fifteen kills. After securing the baron buff, FW closed out the game to take the series lead.

Game 2

The second game started out more evenly, with both teams trading multiple kills against each other. After the FW secured multiple outer turrets, the gold lead started shifting towards their favor. However, GLD won a teamfight against FW near the second dragon. They picked off four members of FW then took the second dragon shortly after. With the gold lead even, tensions were high as both teams continued trading kills back and forth. The tense stalemate between the two teams ended after FW secured the elder dragon. With the power of the elder dragon, FW scored an ace against GLD to win the series.

 

Sentinels versus Liberty

Game 1

Sentinels and Liberty headlined the final match of day two of the Icons 2022 Play-Ins. LBR took the early lead after scoring multiple kills and the first turret of the match. However, SEN had some consolation by securing a dragon for themselves. After picking off two members of SEN, LBR proceeded to take the second dragon. SEN tried to steal the second dragon, but although they were unsuccessful, they managed to take two kills. After taking multiple outer turrets, the gold lead started to even out. Later on in the game, LBR successfully sneaked taking down Baron Nashor. However, SEN responded by taking down the elder dragon. During a baron lane fight, SEN took down four members of LBR. Then, LBR’s mid-laner Vinicius “Kona” de Melo tried to make a winning push towards SEN’s nexus. However, he was stopped in his tracks and SEN proceeded to close out the game for the win.

Game 2

With the series on the line, LBR came out swinging against SEN in game two. The Brazilian squad scored five early kills against the Americans. Furthermore, LBR successfully took the first Rift Herald and the first dragon of the game too. LBR looked like they’d run away with this game as they had a ten-thousand gold lead and two dragons at the ten-minute mark. After securing the baron buff, LBR then aced SEN and closed out the game to even out the series at one apiece.

Game 3

The third game between these two teams started out on even footing. Both teams traded kills and neither team wanted to give the other an opportunity to take the lead. Later, the game started to shift towards LBR’s favor after they secured most of SEN’s outer turrets. However, a fight in the dragon lane ended in SEN’s favor, evening out the game once again. The battle for the elder dragon was a pivotal point in this match. Here, LBR took down four members of SEN and claimed the elder dragon’s boost as an additional prize. Shortly after, LBR also took down the baron buff then closed out the reverse sweep against SEN.
