Vulcun’s lineup was as follows:

  • Caitlin
  • Zac
  • Sona
  • Jace
  • Vladimir

TSM fielded an unusual lineup for this game fielding the following:

  • Annie
  • Xin Zhao
  • Zilean
  • Shen
  • Jarvan 4

Early in the match, TSM pushed a forced fight losing, taking 4 loses and getting no kills. This really set TSM back at the start of the game. It was a huge boost for Vulcun who lost to TSM in week one.

At close to 20 minutes in, the kill standings were 7 to 7. However, the tower and gold standings were not even. Vulcun was up 4 towers to none, and 6k gold. Vulcun then aced TSM losing only one team member. This freed them up to take more towers. Upon respawns, Vulcun got a second ace within three minutes, winning Vulcun the match. This was a really exciting match, intense team battles and very little slow down in the game. This match was a great start to the week 5 lineup.
