Results of the first day of Mid-Season Invitational 2021

DAMWON KIA vs Cloud9

The world champions surprised many with their Morgana peak into the jungle. This champion became strong in Patch 11.9, so DWG decided to take advantage of it. At first, it seemed that C9 took the initiative on the map: they managed to get kills and also take away one dragon, but the Koreans were faring much better, so when the score was 1-4 on the 14th minute, DAMWON KIA did not lag behind in gold. The American team was able to win the botlane, but completely failed in the forest and on the top, which affected the final result. The key was the 21 minute fight, in which DWG were able to completely take the initiative for themselves. They win in 27 minutes in the first match of MSI 2021.

Infinity Esports vs DetonatioN FocusMe

The Japanese decided to counter-kick Sylas in the mid lane with Renekton, but already on the 2nd minute the game did not go according to their plan and Aria dies at the hands of cody.

Royal Never Give Up vs Pentanet.GG

The Australians were clear outsiders in this match, but that did not stop them from surprising everyone with their picks: Lee Sin for mid, Fiddlesticks for the jungle and Urgot for the top. In response, RNG put Rumble in the jungle and Nocturne in the middle lane. PGG managed to seize an early advantage and even make FB, but the difference in skill is so great that the Chinese played back very quickly. Despite the unusual setup, it was not very helpful. On the 17th minute, Pentanet.GG starts a good fight, killing 3 enemy champions, but the forest Rumble instantly turns the game upside down, making a quadrakill. Royal Never Give Up easily finished the game in their favor in 24 minutes.

Pentanet.GG vs Unicorns Of Love

The Australians followed another game, but this time against the guys from the CIS. UOL picked a good composition with control, under Nidalee's spear, which worked at 9 minutes and earned FB for BOSS. Slowly but surely, the unicorns seized the advantage on the map, taking away towers and neutral objects. The game developed more slowly than the previous one, so the key moment was the fight at 25 minutes, after which UOL took Baron Nashor and finished the game in their favor in 28 minutes.

Instabul Wild Cats vs paiN Gaming

Both teams decided to immediately show their non-standard workpieces: Samira, Lee Sin in the mid, Rumble in the jungle for the Turks and Darius in the top for paiN. Samira, with the help of Alistair, was able to earn first blood for her team in the second minute. paiN Gaming completely ganks to the top, giving Sett two kills without killing him and the Wild Cats take over. The Brazilians tried to fix their position on the map, but they only made things worse and by the 12th minute the score was already 10-3. Thanks to Darius and his triplekill at the 23rd minute, they manage to return to the game, but the gap has so far been more than 2 thousand in gold. The Turks are wrong again and now paiN Gaming is on top, but Wild Cats give a fight at 32 minutes, but they were not destined to turn the game around again: after 6 minutes the Brazilians finished the game in their favor.

MAD Lions vs PSG Talon

As expected by many, Armut showed its new champion to the top and it was Lee Sin. On the 3rd minute of the game, the PSG Talon botlane makes a mistake and gives two kills to the European team, and after another 3 minutes, Elyoya returns to the lower lane and makes another kill. MAD Lions continued to seize the advantage and by 10 minutes it was over 3 thousand. The first big fight happens at the 19th minute: MAD Lions get 5 kills in exchange for one support, and Armut brings a huge impact to the team. The Lions take Baron Nashor at the 23rd minute and will soon take the first victory into the piggy bank.
