T1 cruised against Hanwha Life Esports, the last-place team in the 2022 LCK Summer Split standings, today. Faker and crew registered a 2-0 series victory as Hanwha failed to counter or adapt to T1’s gameplay.
Game one in today’s League of Legends series was Zeus’ stage to shine. The T1 top laner picked up Akali and wreaked havoc on the map. With the help of his team’s ambush, he got first blood in the match. From there on, he either picked up solo kills or constantly ganked Hanwha’s lanes to wipe out multiple enemy champions in teamfights.
His performance, along with the late-game onslaught by Gumayusi’s Zeri, paved the way for T1’s victory. By the time the game ended, Zeus’s Akali had an impressive KDA of 8/1/6 and he was named the MVP of the match.
In game two, Hanwha made the mistake of letting Zeri slip through the draft and T1 grabbed it for Gumayusi. Oner’s Lee Sin proved to be the perfect frontliner, too. He danced around the enemy team’s formation during skirmishes, confusing them while his teammates dealt damage from the backline.
Hanwha showed a moment of brilliance and were able to punish T1’s overaggression during the teamfight for the second Rift Herald. But they were not able to capitalize on this and T1 soon recovered from the loss. Gumayusi’s Zeri was also able to pick up a quadra kill before the game ended in T1’s favor.
After the series victory, T1 now sit in second place in the 2022 LCK Summer Split with a 13-2 record. Their next matchup is against NS RedForce on Aug. 7 at 3am CT.
Although they are out of the playoff race, Hanwha might want to end the Summer Split on a positive note. They will look to beat Fredit BRION when they confront them next on Aug. 6 at 3am CT.
