Turkish champ 1907 Fenerbahçe beats Team oNe, advances to main event
Turkish team 1907 Fenerbahçe took down Team oNe Esports 3-1 on Thursday to become the first emerging region to qualify for the 2017 League of Legends World Championship group stage.
Of all the best-of-fives thus far at Worlds, this may have been the one where the discrepancy in individual talent was the most apparent. Team oNe often played the map better, but the Brazilian squad was constantly held back by its own inability to secure sufficient gold on each of its players. Never was this more apparent than in Game 3, when Team oNe managed to secure an enormous lead in both kills and structures, but not in gold, as each of its lanes had fallen far enough behind in creep score so as to offset the global gold it had secured.
