G2 Esports had to come back from a massive deficit to show Rogue how to play a good game of League of Legends.
They were able to turn things around ahead of next week’s seven of the LEC Summer Split.
With Syndra pick, Caps was activated, and he bagged the MVP award for his spectacular carry performance. He ended the game with a 5/3/4 score.
Reacting to the victory via their Twiter page, the LEC described the win as a massive comeback.
In game one, there was an unusual lane swap by Rogue when they sent their top laner on Sion to face the G2 bot lane.
This was capitalized on by G2 capitalized with constant early-game dives, which set the opposing top laner far behind. With Sion behind, the champion needed not a lot of gold to be effective, and the move paid off little in the long-run.
As the game went by, Rogue secured multiple picks, which caught G2 members unaware in the top lane, jungle, and mid lane. Rogue with this tactic secured a 5,000-gold lead around the 20-minute mark with a eight-kill advantage and was on a clear path to victory.
But that was stooped from happening through a heroic Baron steal by Caps to keep G2 in the game, and they slowly came back into to close out the gold lead from Rogue.
In th team fight, Rogue almost secured the Mountain Dragon Soul, but G2 got the edge, with Jankos moved around the team fight to assassinate the carries. Caps during the team fight then ensured that the entire Rogue team was either slowed or stunned.
After winning the team fight, G2 stopped Rogue from taking the Mountain Dragon Soul and secured the second Baron. G2 was able to single out Finn with the Buff. Finn had wanted to catch Perkz off-guard. This became a five-vs-four, and they pushed to end the game.
With the win, G2 is now tied fifth on the log of the LEC Summer Split standings with Excel Esports and Origen.
With this will, this will be a confidence booster for G2 to step out this week to face Team Vitality and Fnatic.
