T1’s calculation of building a rush combination based on Nocturne-Draven and looking for a quick win proved to be correct. T1 called the second set mungun correctly and turned the game around.
T1 built on the groundwork they laid in the first two sets of the second round of the ‘2023 LOL Champions Korea (LCK) Summer Playoffs against KT on Tuesday afternoon at Roll Park LCK Arena in Jongno, Seoul, by focusing on bots and tops to secure the win in 26 minutes. The set score was 1-1.
After quickly pressuring the bot and eating ‘Aiming’ Varus, T1 shifted their offense to the top lane and locked down ‘Gi-in’ Renekton. After a series of Zeus bites and a stretched tower, T1 took the game by storm, creating a 6,000 gold gap at 14-minutes.
KT, who were playing a forking combo with Azir-Varus, found themselves on the wrong end of a strong early game timing with a rush combo that they struggled to recover from. They had a few flashes of brilliance after the mid game, but were unable to capitalize on the early gap. 안전놀이터
Eventually, T1 demolished KT’s nexus in 26 minutes as ‘Kumayushi’ drove the wedge with a triple kill in the Nasher Baron’s Nest Hanta.
