Game 2 was Mikoto’s show as he delivered an impeccable performance on Storm Spirit. BOOM regularly picked off enemy heroes with their high mobility lineup as they established a solid networth lead. Fnatic’s last hurrah was some insane Blackhole by Masaros, but the Indonesians were spot on with their position as they won game 2 in 43 minutes.
Game 3 saw Drew taking the spotlight in the carry role as he amassed a lot of creep score and chopped down enemy heroes. This game was an easy one for Khezcute and his boys as they heavily outplayed Fnatic, winning the game in 39 minutes and series 2-1.
