Samsung Galaxy (SSG) Crowned 2017 LoL World Champion! This tweet from lolesports.com says it all:
SSG came out in the first game, got an early first blood and dominated in the resulting team fight killing 4 of 5 with nifty little Baron recall by SKT to avoid the final death. SSG methodically pushed through the towers getting a couple more kills along the way and dominated losing only one tower in the first game.

SSG Crown got caught out front in mid lane early getting hosed in a quick and neat 3v1 with SKT Faker getting the first blood. Shortly after SSG Cuvee got caught coming down the river and SKT Faker made quick work again for his second and final kill of the match. And here is where the tide turns – SSG came out with a vengeance winning two solid 5v5s in the river using great crowd control and positioning to render the biggest threat thus far (SKT Faker) helpless and totally shut down SKT. SSG Cuvee capped the great team fights with a nice triple kill. SSG easily pushed in for the win a few minutes later.

GAME 2 FULL VIDEO
SKT Blank came in for the top lane gank early teaming up with SKT Huni to grab the early kill putting SSG Cuvee down without a single summoner spell burned. Shortly after SKT Blank teamed up again with SKT Faker on a mid lane gank putting SSG Crown down as well. Then SKT got a solid 5v5 win when SSG Ambition got caught in the opposing jungle by SKT Faker and SKT Wolf.
SSG Ambition pulled back and got got some help from SSG Crown who almost killed SKT Wolf before he saved himself with a last second flash. SSG Corejj also came up from bottom to jump in, but with SKT Wolf escaping and a good push to split up SSG, SKT took advantage of the 5v4. SKT finished off the exchange with SKT Wolf putting all the damage on SSG Corejj and escaping yet again to let the team finish him.
The next few minutes of the match were composed by some team fights with both teams getting some kills here and there but nothing decisive until SSG went for the Baron. SKT Blank tried to jump the wall and steal the Baron as his team came up from the river but he was immediately taken down leaving SKT in a 2v5 retreat as SSG took down the Baron. This was the real momentum shift in the match.
As SKT’s towers are dwindling SSG Ambition Challenges SKT Blank in the jungle and the rest of his team closes the gap to put the SKT jungler down. The ensuing team fight resulted in another kill and ultimately a solid push into SKT’s base. SSG pushed in and did some work but SKT Faker came up from behind in the mid lane and ultimately saved the base. SSG then pushed mid and SSG Ruler caught SKT Faker and put him down to start a fight that resulted in a 5v3 in mid and the final push into SKT’s base to end the game.
