Unicorns Of Love's Ballsy Nexus Raid In Today's League Match Almost Worked

There comes a point in every game of League of Legends where some primal, base instinct compels a player forward towards the Nexus, disregarding all common sense in the hunt for that game-winning slam.

After about 39 minutes in today’s European League Championship Series match, down one game in the series, Unicorns of Love went for a last-ditch, all-in raid on G2's Nexus to end the game. G2 just, just barely held all five off, and launched their own raid while Unicorns of Love’s players were waiting for their death timers to tick down. Bolstered by the huge damage output of Jesper “Zven” Svenningsen’s Varus, G2 pushed a little faster and ended the game.

UoL probably thought the longer the game went, the higher the chance of them fucking it up as usual, so instead they decided to fuck it up immediately.

If they had any confidence in their teamfighting, they could’ve easily waited out G2's elder buff, set up vision for baron and maybe try a brush trap in the mean time. Hell, they could even pretend to give them baron and realm warp into their base then.

Also, I don’t know how they realm warped into the base with 4 people and didn’t manage to land a single hit on the nexus with any of them.
