The first map started with a relatively even first half between the two teams. Some impressive multi-frags by G2's nexa allowed G2 to take a slight early game lead. G2's constant information-gathering allowed them to have a rough idea of the opponent's movements across the map. There were multiple times when G2 players would set up cross-angles alloing them to get the frags.
