Semi-Final #2: Team SoloMid vs. FnaticMSI (1)
Intel Extreme Masters Global Challenge at Gamescom
League of Legends

Match Summary
The second semi-final for the Intel Extreme Masters was underway today here at Gamescom in Germany, and what a semi-final it would be! Two of the highest profile League of Legends teams in the world were pitted against one another in an epic best-of-three series. Between the reigning Season One Champions FnaticMSI and American favorites Team SoloMid, with Shushei and Reginald going head-to-head in mid, it was a treat for the fans.

The first game was no doubt a shocker with Team SoloMid establishing dominance very early on. Aggressive play was the foundation of TSM's strategy with TheOddOne as Gangplank not only getting a quick first blood via a skillful gank on top, but adding insult to injury by stealing the monsters of FnaticMSI's jungle the whole game.

In the fervor of this hectic game, it was TSM who took control during the first major battle at about the 17:00 mark, turning a small 3v3 team skirmish into a full-on team battle and scoring three kills quickly. This took their lead to 6-2 and also gave them a crucial top turret.

Despite Fnatic's extremely skilled play, the reigning Season One champs found it difficult to cope with TSM's well-coordinated ganks and effectiveness at cleaning the enemy jungle. By 30:00, a nearly unkillable Singed on TSM acted as a perfect decoy allowing his team to feign getting Baron during late game. Fnatic, taking the bait, initiated a 4v5 team battle and was unable to deal with the well-fed TSM who dominated the battle raising their lead to 11-3, with an 8-1 turret score to match. Shortly after the battle, TSM went for Baron and pushed aggressively for the win.
