H2k-Gaming dominated Giants Gaming in teamfights to take a 2-0 series win during Week 5, Day 2 of the European League of Legends Championship Series in Berlin.

H2k took a back-and-forth Game 1 on the back of strong late-game teamfighting. H2k jumped out to a lead early, capitalizing on a number of well-thought-out plays to build a gold lead. That lead only expanded further after winning a 3-for-0 teamfight around the 31st minute, subsequently securing a Baron kill and an 8,000-gold lead.

After breaking through the Giants base, H2k cleanly aced Giants in the 37th minute with mid laner Fabian "Febiven" Diepstraten's Leblanc picking up a triple kill, putting the game away. H2k top laner Andrei "Odoamne" Pascu was vital to his team's success, with an unkillable 2/0/15 kills/deaths/assists (KDA) performance on Maokai.

H2k dominated teamfights once again in Game 2, this time early on. H2k took a 3-for-1 teamfight in the fifth minute to set the tone, dominating Giants throughout the game. A 26th-minute 3-for-1 teamfight win led to H2k securing the Baron and a nearly insurmountable 10,000-gold lead.

By the 32nd minute it was clear H2k would be walking home with the series sweep, picking up two kills while clearing off all three inhibitors. A final ace near the 34-minute mark was all H2k would need to earn the Game 2 win. H2k jungler Marcin "Jankos" Jankowski was destructive on Graves in Game 2, finishing the game with a 9/3/9 KDA.
