Snapshot Challenge: What is your next call if you're the blue team?
Some context: You did not see Sejuani recall. Blue side red buff spawns in 20 seconds. Request more context if you'd like!
Bonus: Where should Sejuani go next out of this reset? pic.twitter.com/URJjxhWLrW

Establish topside vision with mid and jungle's wards and threaten dive while Ornn stops TP from Maokai

Blue just burnt flash mid and chunked jayce + mid t1 is gone, Also ori didnt burn ult yet + jhin ult + red has still a relatively weak ezrael, so theres no reason for them not to push mid in deep and 4 man dive top. I don't see how blue team safes that tower right now. 1/2.

What actually happens here is that Kha’Zix goes back to farm his red buff quadrant, and meanwhile Ezreal makes a weak recall that forces Braum to hold a wave 1v2. If JDM had made the macro play that most people (including me) would have recommended, they could have either punished Ezreal’s recall or simply outnumbered RYL at the tower and earned a big tempo advantage, if not killing the tower outright.
