H2K crashed out of Worlds at the hands of Korea’s Samsung Galaxy, cementing the all-Korean Final that was on the cards once all three LCK teams qualified for the Semifinals. Despite H2K winning their Quarterfinal matchup with ease, Korea once again proved too powerful for Europe as Samsung dominated the series, winning 3-0 and booking their place in the Staples Center against SK Telecom T1.
In front of a sold-out crowd in Madison Square Garden, New York City, ROX Tigers and SK Telecom T1 played perhaps the best series of games in the history of Worlds. The first and second seeds from Korea battled back and forth, as the series went to five games. We saw unique and innovative picks, perhaps the best Ashe arrow in the history of competitive League of Legends, and Silver Scrapes blasted through the speakers of the world’s most famous arena.
