LCK, all four teams have two wins and one loss…Green light to advance to the quarterfinals
All four LCK teams participating in the 2022 League of Legends World Championship group stage recorded two wins and one loss in the first round, increasing their chances of advancing to the quarterfinals.
Riot Games said the first round of the 2022 League of Legends World Championship group stage at the Hulu Theater in Madison Square Garden in New York City, New York, USA, was completed from October 9 to 12, and the four LCK teams were ranked at the top of each group with 2 wins and 1 loss side by side.
◆ Group A T1, tied for first place with Fnatic-EDG
T1, who was assigned to Group A, was hit by “European leader” Fnatic, but tied for first place last year when he caught last year’s LOL World Cup winner Edward Gaymang.
T1’s start was neat. T1, which faced defending champion Edward Gaming on the 8th, the opening day of the group stage, easily won the victory thanks to “Faker” Lee Sang-hyuk’s Akali winning consecutive kills as he broke through the opponent’s camp. In the second day of the match against Fnatic on the 9th, T1 gave up the initiative as it failed to overcome Fnatic’s tactics, which strongly pressured the bottom, and was defeated when it was overturned after aggressively attacking to bring the flow. On the third day, T1, which won against Cloud Nine, the first seed of the LCS (North America), by more than 10 kills, recorded two wins and one loss side by side as Edward Gaming beat Fnatic. The second round of the group stage will be held first on the 14th.
T1’s mid-liner ‘Faker’ Lee Sang-hyuk set a milestone in the first round of the group stage. Lee Sang-hyuk, who played against Cloud Nine on the 9th, was the first player in the history of the LOL World Cup to reach a record of 100 games. On September 16, 2013, Lee Sang-hyuk, who stood on the LOL World Cup stage through the Lemon Doggs, won the LOL World Cup in 2013, 2015, and 2016, and became the runner-up in 2017 and the semifinals in 2019 and 2021, setting the world’s first record of 100 LOL World Cup appearances.
◆ Gen.G and Damwon starvation that failed to overcome China
Gen.G, who was placed in Group D while receiving the LCK No. 1 seed, and Damwon Kia, who was assigned to Group B as the No. 3 seed, failed to cross the LPL (China) wall.
Gen.G played his first game of the LOL World Cup against Royal Never Give Up on the 8th. Gen.G, who made up the bottom duo with Sena and Shinzid, did not have fun and lost as they were pushed back in the second half of the firepower. Gen.G later took the mood by defeating 100 Seaves, and on the 11th, “Chovy” Jung Ji-hoon’s Ari won the first round with two wins and one loss against CTBC Flying Oyster.
Damwon Kia of Group B was also hit by the LPL team. Damwon Kia, who showed perfect performance against G2 e-sports, nicknamed the “Korean killer,” played equally against Jingdong Gaming, the first seed of the LPL, on the 9th, but lost due to a lack of endurance. Damwon Kia, who faced the Evil Genius on the 11th, was ranked second in the group with two wins and one loss as they won the game without a big crisis.
◆DRX outperformed expectations
DRX, which had to play a play-in stage while receiving the LCK fourth seed, is doing well in the first round of the group stage.
DRX, who came up to the group stage with all five wins in the play-in stage, lost to LEC (Europe) No. 1 seed Rogue on the 9th, and the winning streak was cut off. A day later, DRX, who faced top e-sports, the No. 2 seed in the LPL on the 10th, showed tremendous pressure and won against GAM e-sports, the No. 1 seed of the VCS (Vietnam), on the 11th with a formidable attack that defeated the Nexus in 22 minutes.
All four LCK teams are 2 wins and 1 loss, but the situation is a little different. T1 is tied for first place with two wins and one loss, along with Fnatic and Edward Gaming, while the other three teams are ranked second because they have three wins.
The second round of the group stage will be held in the order of Group A on the 14th, Group B on the 15th, Group C on the 16th, and Group D on the 17th, and the start time of the game is 4 a.m. 토토사이트
