G managed to dismantle the spike in the 11th round to make up for the round. However, in the 12th round that followed, DRX Kim Gu-taek cleared ‘King’ Lee Seung-won to end the first half with a round score of 11:1.

In the last 3 sets, DRX took the advantage by finishing the first half 8:3. Gen.G also struggled for an opportunity to counterattack, but DRX’s wall was too high. DRX continued its 5-game winning streak by splendidly decorating the final round with a clutch.
