DWG KIA and Gen.G faced off in an intense League of Legends series today. While both teams were neck-and-neck in confrontations, it was Gen.G who finally came out on top with a 2-1 victory in the 2022 LCK Summer Split.
Gen.G dominated DWG in game one. They secured almost every map objective, which helped the team build up a massive gold lead against DWG. Peanut’s Wukong was the MVP of the match. His rotations and ambushes helped Gen.G’s laners get ahead of their counterparts.
DWG then surprised everyone with a Karthas jungle pick in game two. This pick allowed them to kill off Gen.G’s low-health champions with his global ultimate, even when DWG lost teamfights.
Moreover, deokdam’s Kalista and Bible’s Amumu picks helped the team counter the Lucian-Nami combo of Gen.G’s Ruler and Lehends. The match was still very close and DWG were somehow able to successfully destroy the enemy Nexus with the help of a single minion. DWG ended the game with 33 kills to Gen.G’s 19.
Game three was all about Ruler’s Zeri moments. He out-farmed deokdam’s Lucian in the bottom lane and after getting his key items, he became a menace on the map. He went 10/0/2 and even got a quadra kill before winning the game for Gen.G.
After this victory, Gen.G sit comfortably in first place in the 2022 LCK Summer Split standings with a 15-1 record. Their next match will be against Fredit BRION on Aug. 10 at 3am CT.
Although they put up a valiant fight, DWG KIA will be disheartened with this loss. They are now in fifth place with a 9-7 record. They will face Kwangdong Freecs next on Aug. 11 at 3am CT.
