ImageSecond day of the first MLG League of Legends Arena is half way done but we still have to see the two USA representatives go against each other - TSM vs Curse.NA, in a three matches that promise to be anything but boring.

US Team SoloMid will 100% want to take it onto someone for their 0-3 loss yesterday, while US Team Curse will be eager to continue their winning streak. Who will be victorious after the 3 matches?

US Team Curse vs US Team SoloMid

Game 1

Curse: Malphite, Vladimir, Yorick
TSM: Shyvana, Rumble, Alistar

Curse: Urgot, Janna, Dr. Mundo, Sona, Orianna
TSM: Nocturne, Shen, Soraka, Graves, Ahri

The game started with Dyrus going bot. At the top lane Chaox and Xpecial pushed hard until the turret fell and then they went to their usual spot at bot lane. First blood came when Saintvicious ganked bot - Chaox and Xpecial died, but so did Cop. Curse followed that with taking the first dragon as well. It seemed like TSM learned their lesson from Azubu Blaze though as they picked up mid turret and two of the bottom ones.

The first team fight broke out near Curse's blue buff and it ended 2-1 for TSM. Seconds later Dyrus picked up the second dragon all by himself. The next two team fights were won by Curse - 3-2 and 3-1 respectively, while Dyrus kept pushing bot until Cop and Pobelter went and killed him.

The tides were turned though in the next team fight which was won 3-0 by TSM and followed by a baron pick up, which was used to push even further the lanes. Curse tried to respond with a fight near their red buff, but Chaox was too way ahead already and with his perfect positioning TSM took 4 unanswered kills, took baron for the second time and finished the game.

Winner: TSM!

Game 2

TSM: Shyvana, Alistar, Shen
Curse: Rumble, Nocturne, Yorick

TSM: Malphite, Soraka, Maokai, Graves, Ahri
Curse: Vladimir, Urgot, Nautilus, Taric, Ryze

TSM started the game with stealing the enemy's blue buff. First blood was taken on SaintVicious when TheOddOne and Reginald found him camping the mid lane. Saint responed with a gank bot in which Xpecial died. OddOne then ganked top, Pobelter died but Saint counterganked and Dyrus died as well.

The first team fight was in mid lane and ended 4-1 in favour of TSM. It was followed by an ace for TSM in Curse's jungle, only Xpecial died in that fight from TSM's side. TSM then took the next fight as well with a 3-0 score, pushed the mid inhibitor turret and finished the game.

Winner: TSM!

Game 3

Curse: Yorick, Nocturne, Malphite
TSM: Shyvana, Rumble, Alistar

Curse: Ahri, Kog Maw, Nunu, Janna, Dr. Mundo
TSM: Graves, Soraka, Kennen, Maokai, Vladimir

Dyrus went in bot lane again and in the top one Chaox took first blood on Pobelter the moment he showed up in the lane. Chaox and Xpecial did a pretty good job at zoning Pobelter out of the creep wave and the experience which made him stay behind on levels. Reginald ganked top and Pobelter died for the second time. Saint responded with a gank mid and Reginald died. That remained the only kill for Curse in this third game.

The first team fight ended with TSM scoring a clean ace and taking baron at the 18 minute. They took various objectives with it and when the buff respawned they took it for the second time. With it TSM initiated behind the top inhibitor turret, picked up 2 kills and switched to taking the mid and bottom inhibitors and eventually finishing the game as well.

Winner: TSM!
