In this series, TT midlaner Twila took some creative choices that showed to be successful to react to V5’s drafts. He picked Renekton versus Syndra in the very first video game, which led to him grabbing a triple kill while rotating to the toplane, and Neeko in the 2nd video game to counter Mole’s Yone.
Although Twila won his lane in both video games and grabbed the MVP title on Neeko, it was likewise due to the help of jungler Xiaopeng. Both gamers revealed solid synergy and took over the entire map whenever Weiwei was away to farm jungle camps.
Both teams showed a likewise agressive and even savage playstyle, which used video games filled with action with over one kill per minute, in conventional LPL style. Even when there were no neutral goals readily available in the jungle, both teams engaged dangerous battles to wipe the Rift.
Those dangerous engages caused the doom of V5 in both games, on top of losing the lead early due to the fact that of Xiaopeng’s effective ganks. Even when the group started great teamfights with ppgod’s crowd control (who literally skyrocketed), they couldn’t show much coordination and ended by passing away to the hands of TT players.
TT will have an opportunity to grab their second win by playing eStar on Feb. 3, while V5’s next matchup will see them take on versus the 5-0 team EDward Video gaming on Feb. 2.
