MVP: Zeus (Natus Vincere) I CARRIED KIEV: Diamondez (Moscow 5)
[17:50] The second local hero just won the second grand final. The support of the crowd here is amazing. But even more amazing was the outstanding play of Moscow Five. In two out of three matches they just outplayed Solomid like they did in their previous games using uncommon champions and builds and fighting for every buff available on the map with impressing teamplay. First thing Moscow Five did after killing TSM's Nexus for the second time? They packed their equipment. That's discipline you need to win a Global Challenge!
