WBG dropped before the playoffs, SofM and teammates were victims of the meta?
With a recent 0-2 loss to Rare Atom, Weibo Gaming ended the 8th week of competition in LPL Spring 2022 without winning any games. Before that was also a defeat with the same score against Top Esports.
Expanding to include the previous match week, WBG lost 3 matches with the same score 2-0. The only win SofM and the teammates they got during this time also went very hard against an LGD Gaming in the bottom group.
WBG is having pick and ban issue in patch 12.4
From the position of a top team, WBG has now dropped to third place and is in danger of falling out of the top 4 if it continues to lose in the last 2 matches of the group stage. Although the playoffs are guaranteed, being outside the top 4 will put the WBG at a disadvantage when it has to fight another BO5 pair.
Faced with this situation, experts have competed to dissect to find out the problems that WBG encountered. In addition to the decline in the performance of stars like SofM, TheShy The sudden meta change is also said to be a big reason for this disappointing series of matches.
TheShy is having a decline in form
WBG started to decline since Royal Never Give Up ended its 8-match winning streak in week 7. This is also the first week that the 2022 LPL Spring Split applies version 12.4. Before that, this tournament used stable versions of 12.1 and 12.2 during the last six weeks.
With a series of changes in two major updates, WBG almost lost its strength in the previous rounds. SofM once said that the reason the team was sublimated was because each member had a stable champion in the meta, but it was clear that when the tournament changed the version, the WBG did not respond in time.
Huanfeng’s stability alone is not enough in this decisive period
First in the Top Lane position. TheShy, when his opponent banned Gwen in all games, was no longer too dangerous. At the same time, the pick and ban positions in version 12.4 made this player unable to promote his strengths with tank generals like Sion, Malphite. Meanwhile, TheShy barely used Tryndamere, a champion that is well-suited to split push and has been picked by 15 players in the LPL this season. With a slight drop in form, Top God has not been able to maintain high form with Jayce, Gnar or Graves in recent times.
In Midway, Angel also gradually became more harmless when the farming style with Viktor and Corki gradually disappeared. The most typical is the fact that WBG’s Mid lane has not been able to use Ahri well, an active and very hot card in the current version.
Angel is slowly getting out of the meta
SofM is not much affected by champion selection, but the Vietnamese player’s “safe” way of playing is gradually being caught by the opponent. When the early game mutations are gone, SofM is unintentionally putting the singles at a lot of disadvantage, thereby losing the ability to control big goals. And with a tournament as fierce as the LPL, this gameplay is really no longer “safe” like the way SofM shared in the early part of the season.
These are issues that many people can see, in addition, the WBG must also quickly correct internal problems. In the short term, they need to get good results in the last two matches of the group stage against Invictus Gaming and JD Gaming to keep their place in the top 4, thereby creating a good premise for intense BO5 pairs in the playoffs. Upcoming. Because, if once out of the top 4, it is likely that WBG will have to “climb the tower”. And with a rather slow pace with the meta compared to the teams, not many viewers believe that WBG can repeat the “climbing” feats of the previous seasons.
