T1 earn bounce-back win over hapless C9 as Faker pockets yet another Worlds record

It’s not unreasonable to suggest every game at the League of Legends World Championship has a “must-win” feel to it. Teams only get six chances to chalk up victories in groups, so the earlier you fall behind, the quicker winning becomes mathematically mandatory.  

But for T1 and Cloud9, who each dropped games on day two of the group stage, today’s head-to-head was a true must-win for each team as last place in Group A loomed—whether it be in the form of sole possession or a potential tie.
