Game 1

Draft

Icons 2022 Semifinals Day 2 -Team Flash vs J Team Game 1 Draft

Team Flash opted for a draft with strong pick potential, featuring champions like Lee Sin, Ashe, and Akali. Furthermore, Team Flash’s draft also featured strong scaling champions such as Senna and Nasus. Meanwhile, J Team’s draft had strong teamfighting because they had champions with strong area-of-effect abilities like Karma, Wukong, and Rakan. Moreover, J Team also drafted Lucian and Riven, who are champions with strong dueling potential.

 

Recap

The second day of the Icons 2022 semifinals kicked off with the first game between Team Flash and J Team. Both teams were aggressive from the get-go. However, Team Flash’s mid-laner Pham “Coyote” Binh landing a long-range Ashe arrow helped his team score first blood. Coyote landing long-range arrows helped Team Flash’s other lanes come out on top during many early-game skirmishes. As a result, Team Flash held a comfortable lead over J Team for most of the game. However, a fight over the second dragon ended heavily in favor of J Team and helped them regain their footing. Moreover, J Team won another fight near the red-side blue buff and secured the baron afterwards. They used the baron buff to break into Team Flash’s base. Finally, after securing the elder dragon, J Team won another fight in the mid-lane to take the win in game one.

 

Game 2

Draft

Icons 2022 Semifinals Day 2 - Team Flash vs J Team Game 2 Draft

In the second game of this series, J Team drafted Karma, Lucian, and Wukong again in the first picking round. This meant that they were looking to play another composition that excelled in full-blown team fights. However, this time they rounded out their drafts by picking Renekton and Nami. These two champions are strong in lane. It turned out that J Team would be playing the infamous duo of Lucian and Nami bot. As a result, Karma would be flexed towards the mid-lane.  Meanwhile, Team Flash drafted a poke composition by picking Jayce and Ziggs. They picked Kha’Zix, another strong early game jungler to help push the tempo. Finally, they drafted Riven, a strong duelist, and Braum, a good disengage champion to round out their draft. 

 

Recap

Team Flash leapt to another early start in game two by aggressively forcing skirmishes against J Team. They were pushing the tempo once again by using their lead to secure objectives and establishing control over the map. However, J Team punished Team Flash’s overaggression by picking off two members in the middle lane. Shortly after, they secured the baron lane outer turret to equalize the gold difference. The game swung heavily towards J Team’s favor during the team fights. J Team’s team fighting prowess was too much for Team Flash to overcome, as they repeatedly outplayed the WCS’ champions. After successive fights ended in J Team’s favor, they broke into Team Flash’s base. Shortly after, they won a final fight near the elder dragon to secure game two and match point against Team Flash.

 

Game 3

Draft

Team Flash vs J Team game 3 Draft

In potentially the final game of the Icons 2022 semifinals’ second day, Team Flash had their backs against the wall. They drafted another poke composition in game three by taking Corki and Ziggs. However, they switched things up in the jungle by picking away the Wukong from J Team. Wukong was highly important for J Team, who effectively used the champion to win many team fights in previous games. Finally, they rounded out their draft by picking Renekton and Alistar. Renekton is a strong early laner, while Alistar is tanky and can be used to engage and disengage fights. Meanwhile, J Team’s draft had plenty of strong skirmishing capabilities. They drafted Lee Sin, Lucian, and Riven who are each strong duelists. During the second round of picks, they drafted Gragas and Orianna. These two champions are good at disengaging and peeling for the team’s carries. Furthermore, Gragas and Orianna could also be utilized to help isolate and displace the enemy team.

 

Recap

Game three began with plenty of tension in the air. For the first few minutes, both teams aggressively fought each other in skirmishes. However, it wasn’t until six minutes into the game that first blood was drawn by J Team. Shortly after, Team Flash took the first dragon and a kill as compensation, but J Team responded by taking two more kills. Afterwards, J Team proceeded to seek out more aggressive skirmishes against Team Flash. A skirmish in Team Flash’s dragon lane ended badly for them as J Team secured four more kills after a successful tower dive. As a result, J Team got a six-thousand gold lead against Team Flash. J Team was in full control of the game after this, and they repeatedly pushed their lead against Team Flash. Finally, a team fight that broke out near the bottom side river ended disastrously for Team Flash as they ended up getting aced. J Team’s dragon laner Luo “Berry” Junyao scored a quadra-kill in this fight to help his team break into Team Flash’s base and punch their ticket to the finals.
