T1 Zeus: from shadows to Worlds Finals MVP

When it came to League of Legends, T1's journey in 2023 was full of ups and downs. But Choi "Zeus" woo-je, the team's top laner, never gave up. A lot of bad things happened this year. The worst was when T1 midlaner Lee "Faker" Sang-hyeok hurt his wrist during the...

Day 2 of the summer playoffs has ended! After losing in the upper bracket, Nova Esports and Alpha Esports were sent down to the lower bracket to face off Hong Kong Attitude and Berjaya Dragons.

LB ROUND 1 RECAP: 

Nova Esports vs Hong Kong Attitude

Game 1: NOV’s better laning phase made it possible for Ryan to put pressure around the map. Because of this, NOV got a 6k gold lead early in the game. However, HKA won’t go down easily.  Smite god Holo was able to steal objectives giving HKA the Ocean soul and the Baron. Despite that, NOV was still able to maintain their gold lead. One final deciding teamfight happened when the two teams were contesting the Elder Dragon. The fight lasted long enough for G4’s Orianna to be able to cast 2 shockwaves and win them the fight. This secured the Elder Dragon for NOV and helped them close out the game, taking the first win of the series.

Game 2: Nova Esports had their priorities set straight as they focused on forcing the fights in the bottom lane. HKA couldn’t match NOV’s aggression as they continuously pressured and tower dived HKA’s bot lane. Given that, NOV remained on fire through their flawless shot calling. They made proactive plays that gave them an 11K gold lead over the enemy team. HKA didn’t stand a chance as NOV just consecutively dominated the fights, closing out the game and taking the 2-0 victory. As a result, Nova Esports advance and Hong Kong Attitude are eliminated from the tournament.

Alpha Esports vs Berjaya Dragons

Game 1: The first game started with an interesting draft coming out from Alpha Esports. An unexpected Zed and Ziggs bot lane pick came out of ALF’s draft. Meanwhile, BJD went for a textbook pick composition. It was only six minutes into the game when BJD took the first Mountain Drake and forced a lane swap to prioritize the Rift Herald. ALF didn’t back down and chose to fight BJD on the Rift Herald area. The fight went easily in favor of ALF when WeiLun hit four people with his Ziggs ultimate followed up by a four-man Slicing Maelstrom from Bush’s Kennen. Despite the teamfight loss, BJD was still able to equalize the gold lead by prioritizing turret plates. BJD continued to secure objectives by getting successful picks through Ashe’s Crystal Arrows and Thresh’s Death Sentence. BJD’s lead continued to grow through winning teamfights and they eventually closed out the first game.

Game 2: ALF drafted another heavy damage teamfight comp by picking Karthus, Wukong and Orianna. Meanwhile, BJD responded with a poke composition hoping to close out the series in 2 games. BJD successfully prevented ALF’s win condition with the help of Minji’s insane Zoe play followed up by accurate use of Morgana’s Dark Binding and Jhin’s Curtain Call. ALF never got the chance to be healthy enough to force a teamfight, resulting in BJD taking uncontested objectives. BJD snowballed their lead to close out the game, winning the series 2-0 and eliminating ALF from the tournament.
