Only a few days left, the final LCK Spring 2022 will officially start with the confrontation between T1 and Gen.G Esports. This can be seen as a historic match in many ways. T1 is facing the opportunity to become the first team in history League of Legends won the championship without losing a single match with the group stage played in a BO 3 format. In addition, Faker will become the oldest player in the history of League of Legends to make this “unprecedented” record.
Faker and T1 are standing in front of the team’s historic milestone as well as his own
Still Geng, they are also standing on the threshold of history. It’s been more than a year since the last time the name Gen.G was called as the champion of an LCK period. But now, only Ruler is a member of the lineup that won that year. The current members of Gen.G, except for Peanut and Ruler, none of them have ever touched the glory. And for those who forgot, the team Gen.G faced in their most recent championship was T1 in the 2020 LCK Summer Finals.
The last time Gen.G won an LCK was in the LCK Summer 2020 and their opponent was T1
The match between T1 and Gen.G is also a match between two teams with different transfer methods and quite different fates until now. T1 did not bring back any new names, but only used “homegrown”. Gen.G has assembled an all-star lineup with names that have established themselves in the world of League of Legends. T1 is a team that has all the “time, favorable conditions, people’s peace” as well as luck in this Spring 2022 journey while Gen.G has difficulties with COVID-19 positive cases. In addition, while T1 seemed to be playing in front of Kwangdong Freecs, Gen.G sweated to overcome DWG KIA to participate in the finals.
While T1 easily surpassed KDF
Sweaty Gen.G just overcame DK thanks to the timely shine of Chovy and Ruler
And most of all, this is also a match of historical significance with Faker and Chovy. On one side is a legend who is diligently searching for glory after the low notes in his career. On the other hand, is the name representing the young generation of players in the post-Faker era with the desire to win the first championship in their career. Each person has a different style, but it can be said that it is they who hold the destiny of the home team in the upcoming final.
The confrontation between 2 generations
At the age of 26, Faker is still extremely brave in the T1 squad that is full of young players. And even if Faker “steps back”, he still has a great contribution to T1’s unbeaten streak. It would be too much to tell about the games where Faker single-handedly won tomorrow for T1. But anyway, T1 flying as high as it is now is the strength of the collective that Faker’s young teammates are the main characters. Prominent among them can be mentioned “Super Support” Keria with creative gameplay, unpredictable variables.
Faker shines to create a premise for teammates to shine
As for Chovy, who thought he had escaped the fate of “golden spine” after leaving Hanwha Life Esports, right in the match against DK, Chovy became… “diamond spine”. For those who didn’t watch the whole match, it would be impossible to understand why DK leading 10k gold lost. And if the spectators remained patient despite Peanut lying down again and again, they saw the horror of Chovy as he and the team were cornered.
Maybe ShowMaker couldn’t imagine that DK could lose with Chovy’s terrible team-carrying ability
In a meta where the gameplay was biased towards the bottom lane, Faker and Chovy still found a way to shine. But while Faker has a tendency to create a premise for his teammates to have enough time and conditions to “carry the team” in the late game, Chovy (along with Ruler) is showing that they are 2 players “golden spine”. top of the current LCK. Typically, the match against DK, Chovy not only carries the early or mid game but also the most important damage at the decisive stage. In other words, Chovy is still a central part of Gen.G’s gameplay. And for those who don’t know, Chovy is the mid laner with the highest MVP score in the group stage of the LCK Spring 2022 even in a team full of stars like Gen.G.
The playstyle of the two players is also quite different
Chovy does not seem to have escaped the “golden spine” fate.
Faker and Chovy – two names with two quite contrasting schools of competition, as well as representing two generations of the LoL village, will have the opportunity to face each other in the final of the LCK Spring 2022. And regardless of the outcome. Anyway, this is the most anticipated confrontation of the LCK in particular and LoL in general, where the ultimate winner will be the one to write history.
