compLexity Gaming vs. QsQ 357
Match 1

The first match became a complete stomp, only lasting 20 minutes. Horspel had a really good time in the early game, but every other lane was either equal or completely lost by the last remaining Q sQuad team. Even the forest was against QsQ when Malle died to neutral Creeps without any contact to the Legion team. That was followed by a double kill in the middle featuring Glacius, War Beast and Fayde, so that lane was set up for success. Chessie actually did a great job keeping his War Beast ultimate on cooldown and getting kills and assists with it. Every single engagement ended with a desasterous losses on the Hellbourne side and coL pulled ahead more and more, without much resistance as it seemed.

Match 2
Pharaoh bkid
Moraxus MoonMeander
Silhouette Haxxeren
Andromeda Franzzii
Tempest Chessie
Aluna sQy
Tundra z1ff
TDL Horspel
PlagueRider Malle

Now QsQ 357 was under a bit of pressure and the second match started out fairly good against the odds-on-favorite compLexity Gaming, because QsQ kept the game close and looked pretty good out there.After a horrible early game, especially for z1ff on Tundra, every stat indicated that this would be another short affair for coL, but then Horspel just exploded on the Dark Lady getting a "Quad Kill" in an awesome team fight. After that QsQ got ganks through, escaped counter ganks and had a high farm so they looked like a good pick to win the match after all.
coL fought back with beautiful individual plays and great coordination and initiation in teamfights. In the end MoonMeander and Haxxeren both had a Bloodbath streak going and QsQ 357 had to concede, giving the seventh consecutive 2-0 victory to compLexity Gaming in this tournament.
