Go4LoL Cup #64 has now begun with over 50 teams involved this week. While Lzuruha's first match against Rasta was not an issue. A close upset almost happened with the following game against the Canadian team Team Rage in which Team Rage had a 7 kill lead on Lzuruha but with a few mistakes and Morgana snares they were able to pull the game back and move onto the next round which brings us into the quarter finals.
Tournament Bracket for Go4LoL #64:
Quarter Finals: Lzuruha (LzH) vs Team Rosewill (TRW)
The game started out in Lzuruha's favor with a quick first blood, however that did not phase TRW with their Riven being able to shut down Vladimir top lane who would appear to be the only successful lane for TRW against Lzuruha.
With Riven winning his lane slightly he appeared to become over confident and began getting caught as quick as he got too confident. The ties clearly have changed now with the first full team fight happening between Lzuruha and TSW forcing a fight at the top lane mid turret and being able to snipe and weaken the enemy team at the tower before diving them to seal the deal.
Lzuruha claimed Baron at 21:55 minutes and then caught TWR as they came to try to prevent them which did not go in their favor and Lzuruha showed that they were the more dominating team as a team when it came to team fights.
Lzuruha now moves on into the semi finals!
Quarter Finals: Lzuruha (LzH) vs Vince te Ipsum (vTi)
The picks have begun with the typical bans on both sides benching Kog'Maw, Nautilus, Soraka, Janna, Morgana and Shen.
Lzuruha took first blood with Vladimir sucking the blood out of Oriana giving Lzuruha first blood! The game is somewhat balanced 7 minutes in at this point with the score being 3-2 for Lzuruha while both teams are still farming up. and at 11:00 minute mark Amumu does a great gank bottom for vTi getting a double kill on the bottom lane quickly making the game even 4-4! Vladimir gets the tower down and goes to fight Udyr head to head with Udyr just pulling out the victory by tooth and nail!
Lzuruha pull takes out Dragon at the 13 minute mark at least now balancing the game out gold wise being down 4-5 to vTi. We have another gank bottom by Amumu and it was a 1 for 2 kill with Graves being able to claim Amumu's life although dropping to Corki. As all that action is going on Vladimir is still being a bully top lane to vTi's Udyr putting a lot of pressure on the top mid tower while poking. 16:30 currently the score is 5-7 for vTi in kills but no advantage in gold but as that was going on Amumu yet again ganks bottom and able to snipe off graves for another kill making it 5-8 for vTi now!
Vladimir and Lee sin had enough of bottom lane and went bottom to pick up a double kill on Corki and Leona! Massive chase going on through middle lane on Vladimir which allowed Lzuruha to get into position to blast Udyr in the face with Graves ultimate and picked up another kill bringing the score to 8-10 for vTi and Lzuruha picked dragon again at the 19:20 minute mark and is ahead in gold. 21:03 minute mark we have a big play giving Lzuruha a double kill in tri bush bottom now making the game tied up 10-10 now!
Huge battle goes down with an ace in Lzuruhas favor and the Vladimir picking up a triple kill in the battle with a 2 for 5 trade now putting the score 15-12 in favor of Lzuruha. Lzuruha now appears to have their groove and setting up good battles and forcing fights they want now with Anivia's wall placements. Now with dragon up at 25:50 we should have another big battle a dragon. Amumu did a fail ult forcing them to back off and Lzuruha claims dragon for the third time and heading to baron to force a fight with vTi.
At this point vTi are using their ultimates to survive. With the poking vTi heads back to heal up for the next battle while Lzuruha turns around right away to claim the first baron of the game at 28:10 mark of the game. vTi seems to be camping their base waiting until the baron buff wears off while Lzuruha pillages vTi's jungle and farm. No Lzuruha towers are down yet at the 30 minute mark while 5 towers of vTi's are down.
Big team fight going down in Lzuruha's favour giving them a 4 for 1 and taking out two main towers and an inhibiter.
33:30 mark the score has changed massively from the start now with Lzuruha in a 20-13 kill lead and poking middle for their second inhibiter which forces another team fight which makes Vladimir legendary and vTi says "GG WP" to only watch their main towers die and base going down!
Onward to the Finals! Check my next report for the finals report!
