The story of Kanavi
Kanavi has made his name known tho whole world despite drama around Griffin and his contract.
Due to the postponement of the LCK Round Two (check out our update here), we decided to compile the 4th and 5th week of the LCS together, so get ready for a long one. For more information on the LCK make sure to check out this page!
To the surprise of many KT came out on top in this series 2-1. Kuro and Aiming showed up big time for the KT side and although Summit tried his best, it wasn’t enough to stop KT. After the series KT could not believe that they had won either and there was a lot of excitement in the squad.
The story of the past 2 weeks was who would come out as the number 1, T1 or Gen. G and it all started with this match. T1 dominated Griffin and Effort is to blame. He proved to be unstoppable in each of the matches and simply ran over the opposition in true LCK fashion, that is to say, whenever the two teams did fight.
Kiin did his best to bring Afreeca to an upset but ultimately failed as Bdd and Clid got the best of his teammates. The previous T1 Jungler is proving to be the best pick up of the off season for any team as he dominates every other enemy Jungler. LCK plays it slow and Clid shows that maybe you shouldn’t be playing so slow.
Hanwha’s Cinderella story seems to be coming to a close, with this loss against Damwon they find themselves looking at the bottom half of the table, albeit at the top of the bottom. But being the best of the worst has never been fun for anybody. Damwon grab a nice spot in the middle of the table and can look to really make a name for themselves here.
No surprises here, APK fall to the better team in a swift fashion. Of all the teams up for relegation, which it’s a bit too soon to call that but APK look to be the team heading out just as soon as they came into the scene.
Another game that proved just how good one team is and just how poor another team is performing. SANDBOX have a lot of ground to makeup and with the squad they have there’s no reason they should be doing so poorly. T1 just have to keep playing the way they are and they’ll be tying Gen. G for first at the end of it all.
Okay wait, KT Rolster found a 2-0? Surely we are mistaken. With this series Hanwha Life actually fall behind KT ROlster in the standings and KT have almost made up all of their losses already. It may be too soon to say but maybe the curse has seemingly washed off the team.
This was a really close match all things considered. Damwon came in hot and took game 1 but then Fly came in for Afreeca and just decimated Damwon In games 2 and 3. As far as the middle of the pack goes this was a pretty good look at what playoffs might look like.
APK had struggles before so it really isn’t a surprise that one of the most one sided series of the split thus far came from APK vs Gen. G. The pain just keeps piling on for the new LCK team but all things considered, they aren’t alone in last place.
Anything can happen game to game, series to series, but I think we have our playoff teams already locked in with maybe, two interchangeable 6th place teams. DragonX secure their top 3 Round One finish with this win, and Griffin earned themselves a tie for last place finish.
Damwon were hoping for a much easier series than they got with Doran taking another player of the game and DragonX taking another 2-0 series to finish off the first Round Robin.
Well yeah, this was a terrible series from Hanwha and APK performed well above expectations. Neither team would have gotten much out of this but if Hanwha had taken this series as many expected, then the win for KT that comes later wouldn’t have tied them with Hanwha in the standings.
Gen.G come out with another strong 2-0 and just wait for T1 to play later in the week to see if they tie for first place or not. SANDBOX also find themselves tied for last place with this loss and that seems to be the real race, who finishes last?
This was one of the best series of the entire split so far. Afreeca come in and upset T1, which makes T1 tie for second with DragonX and gives Gen.G the first place Round robin 1 finish. Dread played well for Afreeca in the series picking up 2 player of the game awards and if you were to go back and watch any of the VODs for the past two week this is it.
And here we have it folks. KT is on a 4 game win streak and finishes in 6th place with the same record as Damwon Gaming. Griffin on the other hand truly finish in last place due to game score and are on pace to truly suffer for their scandals last year.
|7.||Hanwha Life Esports||3-6|
The LCK Second Round Robin has been postponed but honestly, I don’t think there would be too many changes in the standings based off of how the first Round Robin went. Make sure to look out for when the Riot Games Korea sets the Second Round Robin into effect!
