ImageThe first SoloMid NA Invitational ended with a spectacular series of games. If you wanna find out which tactics brought this victory to TSM, we got you covered.

Not so many hours ago US TSM won the first SoloMid NA Invitational ever, fighting their way up from the loser bracket! US TSM and US TD both had some problems with their internet connections right before the game was meant to start. When the technical problems were solved, the first game begun.

The first match, which decided whether there would be another set of best-of-3 or not, was pretty one-sided. TSM got the first blood around the seven minute mark, which gave them in an early game gold advantage. They managed to hold their gold advantage throughout the entire game by picking up all the dragons and two barons. After 41 minutes TD surrendered and ended up second in the first SoloMid NA Invitational.

Team line-ups:

Team Dynamic

Vladimir - TD ZionSpartan (Solo top)
Nocturne - TD NintendudeX (Jungle)
Graves - TD Zig (Duo bot)
Janna - TD Pixel (Duo bot)
Cassiopeia - TD ParadoXical (Mid)

Team SoloMid

Chaox - Urgot (Duo bot)
Reginald - Morgana (Mid)
TheOddOne - Mundo (Jungle)
Xpecial - Soraka (Duo bot)
Dyrus - Olaf (Solo top)


The first BO3 match was pretty intense: TSM picked up the first dragon at 13:20 with no resistance from TD. Second dragon for TSM went down again at 20 minute mark, and after 4 minutes TSM took an easy baron.

Due to this TD resigned.

Team line-ups:

Team Dynamic

Team SoloMid

Chaox - Ashe (Duo bot)
Reginald - Kennen (Mid)
TheOddOne - Nocturne (Jungle)
Xpecial - Janna (Duo bot)
Dyrus - Vladimir (Solo top)


The second BO3 match was full of action and great plays by both teams. The first blood was picked up by TD in 3 minutes. In under 10 minutes, TD managed to set the score to 5 - 2 with some great ganks. Having significant gold advantage and map control made things go easy for TD and seemed like they were gonna pick an easy dragon at 13 minute mark.
Somehow TheOddOne managed to steal the dragon with smite and set the gold gap a little bit smaller.

At 25:30, TD was able to pick the first Baron, and with the help of the Baron buff they managed to finish the game in 2 minutes from that.

Team Dynamic

TD ZionSpartan - Jax (Solo top)
TD ParadoXical - Vladimir (Mid)

The third and final game of BO3 was full of monstrous play by TSM. The Game started with a 2-1 exchange for TSM's benefit. 10 minute mark passed and TSM were dominating every lane so far with a score of 10 - 2. They also managed to pick up the first dragon at 10:40 with no problems at all. After 17 minutes mark they already had 23 kills, which means they had been picking around 1.3 kills per minute.

TD surrendered at 20 minute mark with a score of 31-5 in favor of TSM, which means TSM is the winner of SoloMid NA Invitational - fighting their way up from lower bracket!
