This enabled the world champions to achieve an item lead throughout the mid game and funnel resources into the neutral objectives once again. NS were slowly starved of gold and experience, prior to being up to DK in a teamfight after a 28-minute Baron play. Khan’s Gnar, which did around 80 percent of the challenger’s total damage to champions picked up the 2nd video game MVP.
