Baron steals are always a big deal. League of Legend’s biggest, and generally most sought after, late game buff can seal a victory for one team or turn the tide for the other, which makes securing the objective one of the most important parts of a jungler’s job.
While these steals can come in all shapes and sizes, few have ever been as smooth and flashy as that of ahq’s Xue “Mountain” Zhao-Hong in this weekend’s LMS match up against Flash Wolves.
WHAT A STEAL: ahq e-Sports Club's Mountain pulls off one of the sickest baron steals in history! #LMSPosted by LOL Esports on Saturday, June 24, 2017
With two people tasked, exclusively, with keeping him out of the pit, Zhao-Hong combines three different movement spells to make his way into the Baron pit and uses his level advantage to smite just a second earlier than Flash Wolves’ jungler Hung “Karsa” Hau-Hsuan.
Unfortunately for ahq, the Baron steal wasn’t quite enough to overcome their early game deficit and they still fell to Flash Wolves leaving ahq at 3-3 so far in the LMS Summer Split.
