Imperial throughout the regular seasonLDLC OL fell when we least expected it, on Wednesday, in the first semi-final of the play offs of the French League League of Legends. Beaten by BDS Academy (3-1), which confirmed its ascending form, the Lyonnais were returned to the loser bracket and will have a second chance to qualify for the final, against Vitality Bee, next Wednesday. The Bees secured their place for the second semi-final by quietly eliminating GameWard (3-1) on Thursday.
Skeanz-Diplex, lethal duo
Given its level in recent weeks, Vitality Bee was the logical favorite for his confrontation of the day. But she got scared in the first game, largely dominated and won by GameWard. Carried by an impressive Duncan “Skeanz” Marquet-Dimitri “Diplex” Ponomarev duo of synchronization, she then recovered and dispatched the next two parts to regain the lead without forcing.
Back to the wall, GameWard, yet feller of the Karmine Corp the previous week, couldn’t do anything in the fourth part. This was once again won by the Bees with their characteristic modus operandi: a lot of moves at the start of the game, in the wake of a very sharp Jakub “Jactroll” Skurzyski, then a summary execution in less than a minute. half hour (3-1).
LDLC OL muzzled
In the LFL semi-final next Wednesday, Vitality will face a bigger piece: LDLC OL. Reigning French champions and almost unbeatable in the regular season (17 wins for one defeat), the Lyonnais finally showed flaws on Wednesday, losing against BDS Academy (3-1). In a spectacular match, they were defeated by their opponent, like Jérémy “Eika” Valdenaire, the MVP of the championship, perfectly muzzled by his vis-à-vis, Steven “Reeker” Chen.
Seeming to be a step ahead strategically and excellent in their aggressive style, Adam “Adam” Maanane and his teammates have confirmed their great form, after lining up seven wins in a row at the end of the regular season when they had started the summer segment very badly. In view of their ascending form, the logical continuation seems to be a first title of champion of France, which is not so far away: all they have to do is win the grand final next Thursday.
