Competo: Vayne, Anivia, Janna, Nocturne, Gangplank
The first game started slowly, both teams attempted early ganks with support from their jungler but Competo missed out on first blood but managed to force Franzetti 'Alth0r' Romain to flash on Karthus.
After this Benjamin 'SleazyWeazy' Hiller put pressure back on Competo by trying to gank the top lane back which allowed Alth0r to re-establish control of the lane.
The bottom lane started slowly with both lanes playing the AD/Support combo.
Carlos 'ocelote' Rodríguez Santiago established dominance in the middle lane, his Rumble outfarmed the opposing Anivia. Oce was also involved in the first blood of the game, he left his lane to support Alth0r and Sleezy which resulted in the first kill of the game.
After this SK took control of the game and began to rack up the kills. The final score ended at 23-3 with SK winning all the teamfights and taking control of the map. They managed to take the first Baron and it gave them 3 towers and realistically, secured them the win.
SK took the lead 1-0 but as was shown last week, that doesn't mean anything!
Competo: Corki, Brand, Evelynn, Malzahar, Sona
The second game was played more cautiously than the first, Competo running with an Evelynn which forced the SK lanes to play more defensively and to buy plenty of pink wards.
This time we saw Carlos 'ocelote' Rodríguez Santiago laning at the top as Akali vs Malzahar so as you can expect nothing really happened until both players got their ultimates.
'CedeoCedeo' started the game with some strong play on Corki for Competo but despite his lane presence eventually the map awareness and mobility of SK started to tell. Some nice roaming from numerous players ensured first blood went to SK and a good few early kills, however Cedeo usually managed to kill 1 SK player at least whenever someone ganked his lane.
Superior positioning gave SK two early dragons which gave them the momentum to keep up their pressure and start to control the game.
The kills finished 30-18 for SK which made up for the fact that Competo had a superior creep score.
SK also took the first baron which allowed them to take 2 towers which gave them much more control on the map and allowed them to pressure Competo which eventually gave them the means to win this game and the EPS final!
A very strong performance for SK and as Ocelote put it to the interviewer, showed everyone that SK are still one of the best League of Legends teams around.
