Cloud 9 Miracle Steal Keeps Them Undefeated
Well, these Baron steals are becoming a weekly affair in the LCS, whether EU or NA. 6-0 Cloud 9 were taking on a struggling Team Liquid. C9 elected to go with Ray in the top lane for game 1 despite his negative results so far this split. Once again, the team struggled with him in the line-up. Liquid were up nearly 9000 gold at the 30 minute mark and they appeared prime to end the game. That's when this happened.
As far as Baron's go, this attempt was incredibly safe by TL. The only way C9 could potentially steal it was if Sneaky were to connect on a miracle deadly flourish which should be easily blocked by any member of Team Liquid. Instead, Sneaky somehow got the last hit with Jhin's W and the Baron buff went the way of Cloud 9. It allowed them to crawl back into the game and they eventually ended it by the 44th minute while still being behind in gold. Team Liquid really should have won this set. They took down C9 in game 2 and if they had secured the Baron in game 1, would have had no trouble running through to the nexus. Cloud 9 would be sitting on 6-1 rather than a perfect 7-0. Instead it all came down to game 3 where Impact took over for Ray and dominated on Maokai.
Last week it was Splyce who flubbed a Baron attempt, however they were able to recover and win the game. TL wasn't as lucky and now have to deal with the consequences as they sit at 2-5.
