Coming out ahead in every single fight, Team Liquid proved their dominance with their 11th win of the season over Enemy.

The early lane swap was in Team Liquid's favor after a four-versus-three tower dive resulted in a First Blood two-for-one exchange as well as the dragon.

Continuing their trend of falling behind significantly before ten minutes, Enemy already found themselves as at 1.5k deficit mostly due to a 1-2 tower disadvantage.

The first team fight happened around the second spawn of dragon. Enemy initiated, but Liquid played the fight well to come out ahead two-for-nothing and take the objective, doubling their lead.

Skirmishing with Enemy near the mid lane, Team Liquid didn't manage to secure any kills but with all five members of Enemy forced back to base both towers were free for the taking.

Liquid were happy to play it safe and let Enemy make the mistakes, and a few minutes later they had their opening. Enemy once again forced the fight, but Liquid's superior coordination came out on top and when the dust settled it was a five-for-nothing Ace. With the convincing team fight win, Liquid earned the Baron and the third dragon for themselves.

Playing recklessly in an attempt to turn the game around, Enemy decided to again take a fight. At first the numbers were in Enemy's favor, but the rest of Liquid was just around the corner to support their teammates and once again lose no one while finding four kills.

At 25 minutes Liquid's lead was insurmountable, and even when face-checking directly into three members of Enemy they easily won a final fight to close out the game.

With the win Liquid keep pace with the top of the table and all but end Enemy's dreams of reaching seventh place.
