T1·DRX must break through the Great Wall to advance to the semifinals
Gen.G and Damwon Kia will face off in the quarterfinals of the LOL World Cup. It’s a ‘civil war’ between LCK teams. T1·DRX
LCK (Korea) No. 1 seed Gen.G e-Sports joined the quarterfinals after T1, Damwon, DRX, and Gen.G by winning four consecutive games in the second round of Group D of the 2022 League of Legends World Championship held at Hulu Theater in Madison Square, New York on the 17th (Korea Standard Time).
As a result, this year’s LOL World Cup quarterfinals will be held between four LCK teams, three Chinese LPL teams, and one European LEC team.
However, T1, DRX, and Gen.G ranked first in the group, but Damwon advanced to the quarterfinals in second place in Group B, behind LPL (China)’s No. 1 seed Jingdong Gaming (JDG), and unfortunately met Gen.G in the quarterfinals after the Group D match on the 17th.
T1 was also expected to compete against Korea-China from the quarterfinals, with LPL’s Royal Never Give Up (RNG) and DRX also colliding with LPL’s Edward Gaming (EDG). In particular, T1 and RNG are rematches in five months since the MSI (Mid-season Invitational) in May. For T1, it is an opportunity to make up for the disappointment of giving up the trophy in MSI.
JDG will meet LEC’s Rogue in the quarterfinals.
The winner of the T1-RNG match and the winner of the JDG-log match will meet in the semifinals. In addition, the winner of Gen.G.-Damwon and the winner of the DRX-EDG match will compete for the final in the semifinals on the other side. 부산출장마사지
Among the four LCK teams that reached the quarterfinals last year, Damwon, T1 and Gen.G reached the semifinals, and Damwon took the final stage. However, he lost 2-3 to EDG, the only team that advanced to the semifinals of the LPL, and gave up the championship.
The quarterfinals will be held at the same place as the group stage from the 21st to the 24th, and the semifinals will be held at State Farm Arena in Atlanta, Georgia, from the 30th to the 31st. The final will be held on November 6 at the Chase Center in San Francisco.
Meanwhile, in the second round of Group A held the previous day, T1 beat Phnatic, C9, and EDG in turn, lightly winning the first place in the group with three consecutive wins. In particular, T1 completely recovered its pace, showing overwhelming performance in all three games, and entered the challenge of winning its fourth LOL World Cup ever.
In addition, Group B’s Damwon also beat LPL’s No. 1 seed JDG after G2 and EG, and DRX, which originally had a gloomy prospect of advancing to the quarterfinals due to strong teams, also dramatically ranked first. T1·DRX
