Gen.G clean sweep T1 in 2021 LCK Spring Split semifinals

Bdd was the player of the series, securing all three MVP votes.

T1’s miracle run in recent weeks has come to an end. The former League of Legends world champions failed to pick up a single game in the 2021 LCK Spring Split semifinals series against Gen.G, who dismantled all of T1’s tactics today.

This series showed a one-dimensional playstyle from T1 and an adaptive one from Gen.G. While the games were not as flashy as other recent matchups in the LCK, Gen.G have a calculated playstyle. They avoid going for risky plays and instead slowly build up their lead before overwhelming their opponents.

The MVP votes went to Bdd in all matches for his strong showing. He used Orianna and Syndra to control his opponent in the middle lane and decide the teamfights. His clean combos and control of those champions led his team to three decisive wins.

The series began with a stomp by the Gen.G squad, finishing the match in 38 minutes with no deaths after a slow and methodical game. Bdd’s Orianna was the core reason his teammates ran away with the game. His mid lane control opened up the map for his team, allowing them to secure all objectives and the clean win.

In the next two games, T1 banned out Bdd’s Orianna, but he defaulted to Syndra, another powerful pick. While T1 opted for a reactive composition, Gen.G instead went for a proactive setup. Everything T1 tried to do was countered by the meticulous playstyle of Gen.G. After a couple of desperation plays, T1 failed to keep up the leads as Gen.G quickly responded with huge blows. The series culminated with a one-sided teamfight by Gen.G near the middle lane, which gave them enough time to finish the game.

Gen.G will now advance to the 2021 LCK Spring Split playoff finals, where they’ll have to face a very dominant DAMWON KIA. In their latest clash during the regular season, Gen.G came out ahead in an intense three-game series. DK’s explosive playstyle wasn’t rewarded last time and they might look to change their tactic in the upcoming match.

The LCK playoffs will conclude next week, April 10, with DK vs. Gen.G at 3am CT. Tune in to see who will emerge victorious and become the 2021 LCK Spring Split champion.
