On the afternoon of July 27, SofM had an impressive performance to help Suning Gaming (SN) win against OMG in the LPL play-off.
SOFM KEEP UP THE FORM IN EVERY GAME
However, this led to SN being subjective and having 2 consecutive teamfight phases. SofM and his teammates were engrossed in attacking Azir in the hands of the icon and forgot about Eric’s Ezreal so they paid the price. By the 25th minute, OMG successfully owned the Baron charm because 2 people of SN were defeated. From there, they turned the situation around and took the lead 1-0.
In-game 2, SN possessed a very strong teamfight including Wukong, Trundle, Galio, Ashe, and Nautilus. Along with the initial advantages created by SofM, SN constantly organizes many team fights to take advantage of the ban/pick phase.
By the 23rd minute, the advantage was huge when SN was leading 4-2 to the turret, 3-1 to the dragon, and 1-0 to the Baron buff. Eating multiple towers of OMG also helps SN control the opponent’s jungle better. As a result, SN held odd catches, typically Curse’s kill of Camille in 25 minutes.
The snowball (the term for expansion of advantage) is very well rolled by SN. Only 5 minutes later, they mixed the OMG phase and equalized the score 1-1. With an 82% drop in the participation rate and good control of goals, SofM was voted MVP of the game.
In the deciding match, SofM once again created a highlight with the exemplary processing phase. At a time when OMG was superior in strength, they decided to actively attack to create an advantage. Lee Sin of H4cker kicked back Huan Feng, the main player of SN, back with “Dragon of Charge”, Kai’sa of Eric used “Killer Instinct” to charge.
“Forest God” immediately uses “Destroy the Arena” on Kai’sa, isolated and then defeated the OMG gunner. Since then, SN won the fight phase and ended the game, fixing the score 2-1. With this result, SN definitely reached the play-off when ranked in 4th place with a record of 10 wins and 3 losses.
WON MPV, SUNING EXTENDED THE WINNING STREAK
Earlier on July 24, SofM once again shone when defeating Victory Five with a score of 2-1. This is a predestined match between former teammates. Up to three players in the V5 squad are Suning’s veterans, including top laner Biubiu, jungler Weiwei, and young sniper Samd. The two teams are also having the same difference, winning 8-3, V5 is temporarily ranked above thanks to the secondary index.
Suning is going through the most beautiful days in club history. They have not known the smell of defeat for over a month and winning against V5 will help them take the position in the top 4 of the opponent. Fans also placed high expectations on SofM personally when he recently climbed to 4th place in the Korean rank, the highest rank of an existing LPL player.
