The second day of the Wild Rift Icons 2022 Global Championship quarterfinals recently concluded today. During the first day, WRL teams Nova Esports and FunPlus Phoenix qualified for the semifinals. Day two of the Icons 2022 quarterfinals featured the two remaining WRL teams against the two remaining WCS teams.

 

J Team versus Flash Wolves

J Team and Flash Wolves kicked off day two of the Icons 2022 quarterfinals. In game one, J Team came out swinging and took the early lead with aggressive skirmishes. Afterwards, they used their early lead to secure multiple objectives and improve their control over the map. As a result, they kept snowballing and were able to continuously pressure the Flash Wolves until they won game one. The same thing happened in game two, where J Team’s early aggression allowed them to snowball until they eventually ran away with the victory. J Team lead the series with a 2-0 score and were one win away from the semifinals. However, Flash Wolves were able to turn things around in the third game. They were able to successfully slow down the pace of the game by avoiding getting killed early by J Team. Furthermore, they were able to trade objectives with J Team and this resulted in them getting a gold lead. As soon as they secured the baron buff, Flash Wolves started sieging J Team. With the gold and power advantage, they were able to overpower J Team to force a fourth game. In game four, J Team looked for early skirmishes again. This time, J Team were able to find and succeed in multiple early fights similar to game one and two. Their aggressive, skirmish-heavy playstyle was allowing them to snowball another lead. With a massive lead and control over the map, J Team were able to secure both the elder dragon and baron uncontested. This proved to be the nail in the coffin for the Flash Wolves, as J Team became the third WRL team to qualify for the semifinals. 

 

JD Gaming versus Team Flash

The final match of the Icons 2022 quarterfinals was between JD Gaming and Team Flash. JD Gaming were looking to be the fourth WRL team advancing to the semifinals. Meanwhile, Team Flash, the WCS’ best team, were hoping to keep the SEA region’s championship dreams alive. In game one, both teams traded early kills with each other. However, the game started swinging towards JD Gaming’s favor after they won the the first dragon. Team Flash turned the game around after winning the fight for the third dragon. Soon after, Team Flash stole the first win after a split push in the baron lane. Team Flash’s mid-laner Coyote was able to successfully split push while JD Gaming were distracted fighting the rest of his team. In game two, JD Gaming started with the early lead once again. However, successful skirmishes by Team Flash in the mid lane gave them the kill lead and evened out the gold lead. Afterwards, Team Flash kept punishing JD Gaming’s aggression while Coyote kept split pushing. A fight near baron ended in Team Flash’s favor, and they used this to secure baron shortly afterwards. From here, Team Flash won the game and got match point. With their backs against the wall, JD Gaming started out strong in game three by taking three early kills. Team Flash stopped JD Gaming from snowballing out of control by securing multiple dragons. Eventually, an extended fight in the baron lane ended in Team Flash’s favor after they managed to ace JD Gaming. Eventually, Team Flash’s scrappy skirmishes resulted in them getting the elder dragon, the baron, and the sweeping victory to make it to the semifinals.
