An extremely close game where SKT won while down behind in team kills.

This game first start with an extremely strong early performance by SKT, allowing every lane to gain somewhat of an advantage, whether it be a kill lead or major creep score lead. While SKT had a gold advantage throughout the whole game, mostly from tower eliminations in the early or mid lane. However, while SKT did have a gold advantage, they constantly got picked off which placed some of the players a bit behind.

Since SKT were constantly picked off, fights were extremely close and some members of Samsung even had level advantages over SKT. The end of the game was extremely messy, and lead to SKT’s favor as the two remaining players in Samsung lacked the damage and clear to prevent SKT from tunneling to the nexus.
