WoFxBrandon – Riktor Emily – Maloch
vVvMcDull – Annette zorooooo – Cresht
WoFxRaptor – Jinnar WSSxSNOW – Tulen
WoFxUnsaweR- Airi Vvriter – Lindis
GGxHyouka – Wisp raidenKIRITO – TeeMee

Five Kings opted to run a balanced team of Riktor, Annette, Jinnar, Airi, and Wisp, while Team Phoenix chose a dual-tank lineup of Maloch, Cresht, Tulen, Lindis, and TeeMee.

Team Phoenix started off the game by invading the Might Golem and successfully stealing it from Five Kings’ jungler. This allowed Vvriter to have an early advantage while GGxHyouka was left to catch up. A couple of small skirmishes in the early game saw players from both teams narrowly escape with slivers of HP left. A three-man gank from Team Phoenix on WoFxBrandon signaled his team to respond at the Dragon Lane where a clash ensued. First blood went to Vvriter, able to tag WoFxRaptor with ranged attacks. Emily’s Maloch dived in for the save, as Vvriter’s HP was low and Wisp was on the offensive. This proved to be beneficial for Team Phoenix, as Vvriter got a double kill while GGxHyouka’s Wisp finally killed raidenKIRITO’s TeeMee.

The battle continues with each team trading deaths, and when the dust settled, the KDA score was dead even at 3-3, with only a slight gold advantage favoring Team Phoenix. A clash at the Abyssal Dragon pit at 5:43 saw Five Kings sway the tide to their favor by killing Emily’s Maloch and raidenKIRITO’s TeeMee, and securing the first Abyssal Dragon in the game. GGxHyouka and Vvriter threw down near Five Kings’ Sage Golem at around 7:42, where both fell, but the momentum was still with Five Kings. Team Phoenix was quick to rotate to the top lane and thwart Five Kings’ push.

A pivotal clash at 9:10 saw Team Phoenix use excellent positioning and timing to route Five Kings, acing them in the process. Afterward, Team Phoenix managed to destroy the two middle lane towers and poised themselves to get the Enraged Abyssal Dragon. However, Five Kings had already respawned and were on their way to contest the Dragon objective. vVvMcDull’s Annette contested the Abyssal Dragon, and while Vvriter still got the dragon, Team Phoenix was wiped out 3-0 by Five Kings. They then proceeded to take Team Phoenix’s two middle lane towers and were positioning to get the third middle tower. However, Cresht and Maloch were there to successfully defend their base.

Looking to take back momentum, Five Kings’ WoFxUnsaweR began to push the top lane and managed to siege all the way to the second tower. This led Team Phoenix to look for a team fight in the middle lane. They engaged Five Kings, and some masterful positioning from WoFxUnsawer led him to push back Vvriter who was the focal point for Team Phoenix’s damage output. This led to Five Kings routing Team Phoenix again, 13-9, and easily taking down Dark Slayer.

With the Drake at the ready, Five Kings sought to deal the decisive blow and win Game 1 against Team Phoenix. Five Kings summoned the Drake in the middle lane while they pushed the top lane. Team Phoenix defended well thanks to the sheer firepower of Vvriter’s Lindis. Unfortunately, Five Kings were able to shut Vvriter down and destroy both the middle and top towers. Eventually, Five Kings were able to take down the core and take Game 1.
