What MLE did right:
- MLE had a very good start. dominating every lane and taking a good hold of their lead allowing them to be the victor of game 1.

Both teams played evenly in the early part of the game trading kills and getting their objectives. MLE manages to get the upper hand after destroying 2 turrets at once and continues to give pressure in all lanes. CM Storm Diamond's attempt to catch up with MLE has been put into waste after losing a teamfight due to their poor skill execution allowing MLE to take the Baron.

CM Storm's attempt to contest the Baron against MLE has been successful but once again put into waste after losing the teamfight allowing MLE to score an ace and take over their inhibitor turret extending the gold lead into 7k.

MLE.Hat3's striking initiation allowed MLE to score another ace after their successful attempt on stealing the dragon from CM Storm and once again took an inhibitor turret and gave them the opportunity of taking over the Baron.

At 30min mark, CM.Storm engages into a teamfight and loses as MLE continues to push through their base and took over their Nexus.

what MLE did right:
- good skill executions and having good decisions leads them to win this game against CM.Storm.

What CM.Storm should improve on:
- CM.Storm should improve their engages in terms of skill executions and positioning during teamfights to avoid giving the enemy team the opportunity to counter engage.

Good rotations, ganks and focusing in their objectives helped MSI took the early lead in the game, but IPT's impressive counters and follow up engage allowed them to close the gap down to 600. The game continued with each team trading kills and after a few teamfights the game has been passive as both teams continues to farm up.

At 29min mark, An ill-manage initiation from GoodMemories resulted into IPT winning the teamfight and picked up 2 members of MSI, and inhibitor turret and an opportunity to get the Baron giving IPT a gold advantage of 4k.

IPT uses this advantage and pushes through the enemy base winning the last teamfight against MSI claiming the victory in this match.

What IPT did right:
-IPT takes their time wisely by slowly catching up and trading blows to make the lead in their favor.
