G2 had never lost ground before on March 26. The team had won 12 consecutive games to close out their domestic schedule in the LEC, then won 12 more to open up their run on the international stage at MSI on Friday, defeating two tournament favorites in T1 and Royal Never Give Up, thus cementing themselves as potential tournament favorites in their own right.
Despite having a gold advantage for 24 minutes to open the game, G2s lost ground and sealed a huge turn of a victory for PSG in the last three minutes.
In today''s victory, mid-len Bay served as an unspoken hero. Despite his remarkable performance in the contest, he participated in ten of his teams'' 12 total takedowns, which had a kill participation score of 88%. For example, his KP% through the PSG''s first ten games at MSI had been a dismal 66%, according to the League stats site Games of Legends.
With this victory, PSG have completed the first round robin of the rumble stage, converting into a tie for fourth place in this phase of the tournament alongside Evil Geniuses. Only the top four teams will move onto the knockout stage of MSI.
G2 will return to the MSI stage later today, assuming they''re hoping to break another winning streak against RNG.
