Team SoloMid kept the North American snowballing stereotype alive as Søren "Bjergsen" Bjerg's Syndra tapped into an otherworldly power to help devastate Splyce. The No. 3 seed from Europe was eliminated from quarterfinals contention at the 2016 League of Legends World Championship.
The game started out evenly paced with a trade of kills, but some good counter-jungling from TSM's Dennis "Svenskeren" Johnsen made Jonas "Trashy" Andersen largely a nonfactor in the match. Still, Splyce attempted plays, burning a summoner spell here and there and even flanking Yiliang "Doublelift" Peng for a kill.
But as is the theme for NA, TSM just became too overwhelming, crowd-controlling members of Splyce for pick after pick to open up objectives on the map. Caster Joshua "Jatt" Leesman called it a bounce house, with knockups from Braum and Rek'Sai tossing Splyce around.
Bjergsen finished 13/1/8 when the Nexus fell at 28:31.
