DRX ! Beat T1 and win like a drama. [LOL World Cup]
DRX defeated T1 3-2 in the final of the 2022 League of Legends (LoL) World Championship (LOL) at the Chase Center in San Francisco on the 5th and lifted the “Cup of Summoner.”
As a result, DRX, which managed to advance to the LOL World Cup as the fourth seed, finally completed the “Underdog Myth” after continuing a dramatic match from the preliminary round.
The game was much fiercer than expected throughout the fifth set.
In the first set, as everyone expected, T1 won with a performance advantage. T1 overwhelmed “Kuma Yushi” Lee Min-hyung with “Deft” Kim Hyuk-kyu from the beginning, and overwhelmed his opponent with his skillful game management that did not miss DRX’s mistake.
T1’s momentum continued until the middle of the second set. However, DRX’s magic began at a time when the final match of the LoL World Cup seemed to end. DRX made the set score one-on-one by winning a come-from-behind victory after a close game.
In the third set, T1’s potential again showed its power. T1, which could have been dampened by a come-from-behind loss in the second set, made 2-1 by making “Baron Steel” twice with intelligent play.
But the DRX was a ‘miracle team’. DRX, which has been through many difficulties with its tenacity to the end of this tournament, has gradually widened the gap, starting with the first stack of dragons He overcame the crisis of Baron’s engagement and passed the game to the final set.
The last five sets were the best climax of this LOL World Cup. The tension of not being able to easily fight each other led to the explosion because a tight match between them continued until the middle and the match could be divided by one battle.
The tense atmosphere was the engagement of the central region. The DRX won a big victory and brought the atmosphere to their own. At the last minute, DRX faced a crisis by allowing his opponent to “baron steal” again, but after successfully hunting dragons and preventing the opponent’s surprise home base hit, he flew to the opponent’s side to destroy Nexus.
