LOL is also an American game?”Walkle” mid-air who showed off his presence in the quarterfinals
Midliners began to show their presence from the knock-out stage of the 2022 World Championship (LOL World Cup).
The quarterfinals of the 2022 LOL World Cup were completed on the 24th. As a result, T1, Gen.G e-Sports, DIX, and Jingdong Gaming were named in the semifinals. And the line that stood out the most in the quarterfinals, which was followed by a great match, was also Mid. Mid, who showed relatively little presence compared to Top and Bottom in the group stage, proved to be still an important line, leaving impressive images in the important multi-challenge.
The match between Jingdong and Rogue, which was one game in the quarterfinals, ended somewhat in vain with Jingdong’s 3-0 victory. Rogue, who was behind Jingdong in most of the lines, finished his journey in the quarterfinals without using his strength properly. But ‘Larsen’ Emil Larsson was different. He always fought hard as the last bastion of the team in difficult games.
In particular, it was impressive to see him struggling with a play that never dies while playing LeBlanc in the third set. In the end, he did not prevent the team from losing, but he played the role of the team’s ace with a play that only kills twice in three sets.
Veteran “Faker” Lee Sang-hyuk was at the center of T1, who succeeded in revenge for the mid-season Invitational (MSI) by beating the Royal Never Give Up (RNG). Lee Sang-hyuk bought time by shedding his opponent’s ganking several times in the crisis when the top “Zeus” Choi Woo-je was hit by his opponent in the second set. While Lee Sang-hyuk was holding out by consuming the turn of “Way” Yen Yang-wei, “Kuma Yushi” Lee Min-hyung succeeded in growing well and T1 succeeded in turning the tables.
The mid-liner also shone in the match between Gen.G e-Sports and Damwon Kia, which are considered the most prestigious LOL World Cup competition. “Chovy” Jung Ji-hoon played Yone and carried the team. Heo Soo, a “showmaker” who faced this, entertained fans by creating many great scenes despite the defeat, including a solo kill recorded with Swain and a fantastic skill connection shown with “Cannion” Kim Gun-bu.
“Jeka” Kim Gun-woo of DIX, who decorated the last game of the quarterfinals, was also dazzling. Kim Gun-woo, who showed good performance from the play-in stage, performed well in all five sets against Edward Gaming (EDG). In particular, he led the team to the semifinals by stealing Renata Glask’s ultimate power in the third set, which was unfavorable, and scoring four solo kills against LOL Cup winner “Scout” Lee Ye-chan in the fifth set.
In League of Legends professional games, Mead has always been considered an important line. And this quarterfinals was once again a stage to prove its existence. Attention is focusing on whether these midfielders will continue to play in the semifinals
