CLG takes down the first baron at 35:50 after a 3-0 exchange on their favor. CLG is still behind in terms of gold but with that Baron buff they are able to 5-man roam around the map taking down two towers.

After a 3-2 exchange CLG is able to take down the second Baron as well. This leaves imaqtpie alone in CLG's base letting him take down 2 inhibitors for that baron. After a long struggle under CLG's top inhibitor turret a fight breaks out ending in favor of CLG. With this advantage CLG is able to take down the first inhibitor for them. The score is 11-17 and the teams are almost even in gold.

The timer hits 60 minutes and Dignitas picks up the third Baron of the game after CLG was so low on HP that they had to back off. This allows them to take down 2 inhibitors. CLG tries to turtle against all those super minions while Dignitas freely takes another baron. After a 10 minutes of struggling in CLG's base and outside of their base Dignitas is able to take down the Nexus turrets and finally the Nexus itself with a score of 15-22.
