Game two was a similarly dominant game for Team Falcons. The team played aggressively every minute, not sparing a tiny amount of space for the entirety of GG. Whenever GG tries to make a move or an initiation, Falcons responds in a flash, bringing enough manpower to turn fights around. Despite a stronger defense from GG in this game, Falcons still grabbed a smooth victory.

The game ended with a 5-man smoke into GG's base, catching them off guard. A bloodthirsty Malr1ne dived into GG's fountain alone, wiping enemy cores and securing the victory.
