Day 3 has wrapped up at the League of Legends World Championship, and the junglers stole the show. And baron. They also stole baron.
Junglers stealing headlines and barons
FunPlus Phoenix (1-1) avoided a second major upset overcoming a first tower take by Splyce (1-1) and a 3.5k gold deficit to move to .500 in Group B. Splyce was previously 6-1 when taking first tower in international games. The game turned on the back of a clutch baron steal by Gao “Tian” Tian-liang’s Lee Sin and was finish off by Kim “Doinb” Tae-sang’s Ryze, who finished with a 5/0/9 KDA. Lee Sin has turned into one of the tournament’s best picks, improving to 17-7 including play-ins.
