If T1 had completely dominated the LCK Spring Splitthe South Korean league League of Legends not losing any match in its conquest of the title, the summer edition of the competition returned to Gen.G, this Sunday. After an overflowing regular season (17 wins, one loss) coming close to equaling the success record set a few months earlier, the new champion crushed his main rival T1 in the final (3-0).
In the drafts and their executions, the formation of Gen.G has shown in each of the three rounds that it is evolving today a notch above the defending champion, yet the only one to have taken a match from him this summer, beginning of July. She thus won a first well-deserved trophy for a club which, in the process, awarded itself the No. 1 seed for South Korea for the Worlds this fall (in Mexico and the United States). T1 will have to settle for the second hat.
Gen.G’s four-star team – with 2017 World Champion Jae-hyuk “Ruler” Park back at their best and crowned for the first time in Korea; Wang-ho “Peanut” Han, defeated in the final against the latter five years ago and still in search of a Worlds crown; or Ji-hoon “Chovy” Jeong, one of the best players in the world, also finally titled at home – will go to America with the status of favorite. Four teams (including DAMWON, world champion in 2020 and finalist in 2021) will compete for the last two tickets to represent South Korea there next week.
