FunPlus Phoenix (“FPX”) struck first in the final series. Doinb set up his team to dive top lane for first blood. A repeat visit from Tian gave another kill to FPX. FPX held the pressure in the game, but Perkz found a pick on Tian to swing it in G2 Esports’s (“G2”) favor. Both teams converged for a team fight followed by several skirmishes across the map, but FPX found the single kill. Action broke out mid as another skirmish grew to a 1-1 conclusion. Objectives were traded but FPX found the edge with an extra kill. The first tower fell to G2 with the Rift Herald. Perkz once again found his team the advantage with a pick on Crisp that led to the middle lane tower.

Wunder fell and gave the top tower in response. Splitting apart FPX, G2 broke the stalemate with a pick on an FPX caught setting up. Doinb found his team a massive pick that led to the middle towers being equaled. Infernal went to G2, but FPX found the fight win with 4-1 and the Baron Nashor. G2 found a teleport that gave them the top lane inhibitor but lost them 3-2 and the Elder Dragon. Second Baron went to the blue side and soon after the top two inhibitors. A pick led to a five-for-zero close for the Chinese first seed.

A game separated the tournament favorite from being the tournament victors. Infernal went to G2 as FPX found a fight to go up 3-1. Sides traded objectives with Rift Herald to FPX and Cloud Dragon to G2. Rift gave FPX the first tower in the top lane. When G2 tried to force forward FPX found the opening to find three unanswered kills. Mikyx was caught under the sheer engage that the Chinese draft brought. Lwx used Kai’sa Killer Instinct and stopwatch to bait in G2 and extend the pick to two for his team.

As soon as Baron came up, the red side rushed it. They took the purple worm and rushed the European roster to push them back and prevent possible responses. Refusing to be pushed onto the back foot, G2 found a pick to get a second kill, but Lwx avoided their pressure and led his team to five kills in response. A two-minute team fight broke out across the map resulting in a 7-2 fight victory to FPX. The team was then able to crush through the middle lane and take the second game.
