DAMWON GAMING VS GEN.G ESPORTS RESULT WEEK 8, DAY 2

Opening week 8 and it is the final match to end the playoff round rankings, we have 2 extremely expected matches between Damwon Gaming and Gen.G Esports. Damwon Gaming this summer is really transforming, 11 wins but only 2 losses, of which 2 defeats are 2-1 and only lost to 2 difficult opponents, Gen.G Esports and DRX And winning is extremely easy and neat in just 2 games. The confrontation with Gen.G Esports is a better opportunity for them to repay the debt that Gen.G Esports created in the first leg.

In-game 1, Damwon Gaming chose a roster with a lot of champions that were good-handed with Nuguri’s Jayce, Canyon’s Nidalee, and Ghost’s Ashe. With such a formation, it is not difficult for Damwon Gaming to deploy its strong fast attack. Despite Gen.G Esports used his ability to control his goal in an effort to counter, Damwon Gaming easily won game 1 in 26 minutes.

Entering game 2, Gen.G Esports decided to give two wings to the generals with very strong carry abilities, Renekton in the hands of Rascal and Ruler holding Ashe. Clid can also use Volibear – a pretty strong jungler in the current meta. In this game, with the advantage of generals in the early game, Gen.G Esports is ready to organize small teamfights whenever possible. Gradually accumulate the snowball, and by the time it is too large and completely crushes Damwon Gaming. Gen.G Esports ended the game in the 31st minute, equalizing 1-1.

THE PLAYOFF ROUND RANKING HAS GRADUALLY ACQUIRED VACANT POSITION 

Entering the final game of the playoff round rankings of LCK Summer 2020, Damwon Gaming once again surprised both the opponent and the audience with his ban/pick stage. Canyon picked Karthus and BeryL picked Sejuani for the support position. The last time this general was selected in the hands of GRF Lehends in the victory over Gen.G Esports himself. It seems that with a new roster, Gen.G Esports has been “matched” and cannot think of a counter-plan. Damwon Gaming easily deployed strong teamfights and took the final victory. With this victory, after the first day of competition, Damwon Gaming officially stepped up to the top 1 after pushing DRX down with less than 1 win at the playoff round rankings.

In the remaining match of the playoff round rankings, T1 also easily defeated a weak 1 SP with a score of 2-0, this match Clozer is still believed to play. The remaining 3 days of competition are 3 days that the teams that are considered to be the top have a fairly light victory. On day 2 AF won DYN 2-1, not won HLE with the same score. On a penultimate day, both DRX and Damwon Gaming had a quick 2-0 victory over two not too “sweet” opponents, SB and SP. As for the final day of the playoff round rankings, T1 won quite easily 2-0 against DYN in the first match, paying the 1-2 loss in the group stage Gen.G Esports, on the other hand, struggled to find the win before kt.

Thus, after week 8, the list of teams of the playoff round rankings that are likely to enter the playoffs has appeared. DRX, Damwon Gaming, T1, and GEN are the 4 names present, and AF still needs at least 1 victory next week to have a chance to win the ticket. On the contrary, the group no longer had a chance to enter the playoff also appeared this week with three teams including DYN, SP, and HLE. But these 3 teams are lucky to not have to play the promotion round because next year, LCK summer 2020 will franchise.
