Dignitas VS. Saigon Jokers
What Dignitas needs to do
1.) Shut down Archie -- failed to do this
2.) React to differing mid styles -- failed to do this
3.) Enable Scarra to carry -- failed to do this by not reacting to the mid styles.
Bans: Irelia, Evelynn, Alistar
Shen -- bot lane
Udyr -- jungle
Katarina -- ap mid
Corki -- adc top
Nunu -- top support
Bans -- Gragas, Diana, Shyvana
Jayce -- solo top
Ezreal -- adc mid
Karthus -- ap bot
Leona -- support/roaming mid
Malphite -- jungle
SAJ switches lanes here putting Ezreal mid to counter Katarina and Karthus bot to counter Shen while Dignitas sent Corki and Nunu top. Jayce handled the 2v1 just fine but the other lanes didn't fare so well at all. Dignitas never actually adjusted or shifted to counter this strategy and it was their long term downfall.
-- SAJ counter jungles and steals wraiths and red buff from Dig.
-- After invading, Malphite and Karthus go bottom to get 1st blood on Shen.
-- Patoy gets caught out in SAJ jungle while trying to ward, giving a kill not only on him but also on Corki.
-- Karthus overextends with no wards out in the river and gets ganked by Shen and Udyr
-- Malphite goes to gank Katarina, notices that Udyr is there and instead takes advantage and steals Udyr's jungle.
-- SAJ donates blue and red to Ezreal to keep him dominating Katarina mid.
-- Karthus learned from his earlier mistake, allowing Shen to push, where he farmed fine and Shen was constantly overextended.
-- Leona ult flashes zenith blades in onto Kat, with Malphite and Ezreal joining in to give a kill on Kat that happened quick enough that Shen couldn't even ult in quick enough. Then, SAJ took a 13 min free dragon.
-- Karthus gets a 13 min ROA.
-- Shen ult saves Scarra from a Malphite, Leona, Ezreal gank but SAJ waits until the shield fades and Karthus ults for the kill. Nunu and Corki come down to try to counter the gank. Leona and Malphite gain a kill, letting Ezreal die.
-- 2nd uncontested dragon at 19 minutes for SAJ.
-- Ezreal gets ganked by several members of Dignitas. Using essence shift and the slow from Triforce, he successfully kites Shen and Udyr long enough for his team to show up and turn around. They're able to score several kill s and push mid hard enough to leave 1 nexus turret standing.
--26 minutes, SAJ thoroughly wards Dignitas jungle and clears Dig wards and then takes baron completely uncontested.
-- In a last ditch effort to turn the game around, Crumbz initiates under Dig's tower with a beautiful flash/taunt. Unfortunately, this gives SAJ the ace and the win.
Phreak says, SAJ won in the first 5 minutes when Dignitas did not react to their setup.
