Gen.G swept Liiv SANDBOX today in the third week of the 2021 LCK Spring Split.

The League of Legends series was one-sided with Gen.G having superior drafts, individual performances, and teamplay. The MVP votes were picked up by Life in the first game for his Leona and Ruler in the second game for his Kai’Sa. The duo lane partners showed up huge today, but mid laner Bdd in particular made the bottom lane domination possible. In both games he used Azir to help out his teammates, while also giving enough space in teamfights for Ruler to do damage.

The first game of this series began with Gen.G’s Flawless taking the lead on Olaf and using the champion to quickly snowball his laners. After getting his laners ahead, they grouped to pick up all neutral objectives, leaving no room for errors. The game was almost perfect with SANDBOX failing to pick up a single tower or neutral objective. After 30 minutes of domination, Gen.G finished the first game.

Following the devastating loss in the first game, SANDBOX changed their draft around in the second game. They picked up more kills and some neutral objectives, but in the end fell to Gen.G’s superior teamplay and map control.

Following this win, Gen.G (4-2) are getting closer to DWG KIA in the 2021 LCK Spring Split. Gen.G’s next matches are against weaker opponents in DRX and Nongshim RedForce in the upcoming week. If they take them both down, they should make a claim for first place in the standings.
