Lane matchups start out completely standard and early action remains at a minimum. The first fight breaks out in the bottom lane where Xmithie comes down to flank FNC. Puszu seems to get to safety initially, but BloodWater pursues with Flash and secures a first blood. xPeke wisely teleports down into the bottom lane and helps clean up two kills while YellOwStaR also gets a kill that turns around the exchange in a big way for FNC. Shortly after, Zuna falls to the Puszu and YellOwStaR combination in bottom lane as Cyanide assists sOAZ in attacking Sycho Sid in the top lane. Sycho Sid has no summoners to escape Dragon's Rage and he falls with the help of red buff. FNC drops the first tower of the game in the bottom lane which gives them a small lead. After getting some pressure in the middle lane, VUL attempts to burst down xPeke with Crescendo and Frozen Tomb. xPeke narrowly escapes, but Cyanide uses Dragon's Rage to hurl Xmithie into FNC's tower doing massive damage and securing a kill. sOAZ arrives in time to Elastic Slingshot into the fleeing VUL team and picks up another kill. Sycho Sid continues to push the top lane in sOAZ's absence and takes the tower before a healed up xPeke can arrive to defend it. VUL regroups when Xmithie respawns and promptly takes the Dragon before FNC is ready to react. FNC still has a comfortable lead as they now have four towers while VUL only has taken one.
FNC consolidate and send every champion to the middle lane to siege the inner tower there. VUL wastes little time poking and goes for an alpha strike on xPeke's Ahri. BloodWater lands the Crescendo and gets the Frozen Tomb follow up to kill him before he even has a chance, but their aggressive play left them all caught in YellOwStaR Stranglethorns. FNC cleans the entire VUL team and gets the tower and an ace. FNC spreads out and continues to lurk around and steal VUL's blue buff as well as getting another champion kill. Puszu heads top to push out the lane and destroys the weakened, undefended inner tower there. FNC now leads 13 kills to 2 and holds an 8,000 gold advantage.
FNC comes down the middle lane and catches Xmithie with an Enchanted Crystal Arrow. Each FNC member is extremely strong and wears down the entire VUL team for four kills and no deaths. VUL opts to surrender rather than play it out so far behind.
