Too often I find players who believe games are decided off the smallest factors, especially in the early game. But that's frequently not true when you're looking at the best teams in the world, and I was really excited to get an opportunity to look at the replays for these particular matches to show exactly how big the broader game strategies are.
It's worth saying that Fnatic is extremely good at pulling off these kinds of plays, and it's a big part of why their teleport strategies work so well. But Royal Club picked and banned Fnatic out of their most mobile champions, and prevented Fnatic from getting Shen every game. On top of this, Fnatic also chose not to take teleport for any of the matches, and while I can understand the logic, if Xpeke had the spell during this match, Royal Club could not have pulled off this particular set of plays.
