After defeating MAD Lions 3-0 on Sunday, the reigning DWG KIA winners are closing in on their second consecutive crown (24 October). The South Korean giants appeared unbeatable, with a winning streak of nine games in a row.

In game two, the MAD Lions didn’t go down without a fight, shutting out both Kim “Khan” Dong-ha and Heo “ShowMaker” Su early on. While the Europeans scored the majority of the goals and won most of the early bouts, DWG KIA anxiously awaited a late-game comeback.
Khan turned things around in the battle for the Baron, taking advantage of a flank created by Kennen’s ultimate to create an ace for his team. Then, when all of their champions defeated their opponents, DWG KIA completed their 36-minute comeback victory and grabbed a commanding 2-0 Series lead.
