Lemondogs faced off against OMG in the first game of the day. Despite taking an early lead against the Chinese team, Lemondogs lost the game to OMG. However, Lemondogs’ Mid Laner, Nukeduck, showed some amazing plays on the champion Fizz during the match and got the crowd cheering.
The second game of the day pitted SK Telecom T1 against GamingGear.eu. GamingGear.eu made some mistakes during the match, and SK Telecom T1 took advantage of their fumbles with a decisive but unexpected win.
TSM Snapdragon took on Lemondogs in the third match of the day. Lemondogs dominated during the early match but gave up the lead to TSM Snapdragon who won the match.

GamingGear.eu had their second game of the day against the Chinese powerhouse OMG, and after a good fight, lost. With the victory, OMG secured a 4-0, still undefeated in group A.
The final match was between two fan favorites: SK Telecom T1 against TSM Snapdragon. Despite great early plays by both teams and TSM Snapdragon’s AD Player, WildTurtle, managed to make some great plays even in a losing game.
After the final match of group A, OMG stands in first place at 4-0, SK Telecom T1 sits in second at 3-1, TSM Snapdragon in third at 2-2, Lemondogs at 1-3 at fourth, and GamingGear.eu last at 0-4.
Despite Lemondogs being a strong force in Europe and having some close games, they have not been able to close out games like they want. TSM Snapdragon has consistency issues and OMG and SK Telecom T1 are securing the top two spots at the moment. There’s still hope for TSM Snapdragon though so don’t count them out just yet.
