August 10, 2023 | by

The game-winning mid Tristana card and the Renekton on Gui’in made the difference in the first game for T! KT, who was on the brink, managed to fight back and dragged the game to the final five sets.

In the fourth set of the T1 match of the second round of the ‘2023 LOL Champions Korea (hereinafter LCK) Summer Playoffs at the LCK Arena in Jongno, Seoul, on Tuesday afternoon, KT broke the opponent’s nexus in the 30s with outstanding carries from Kim “Gi-in” Ki-in and Kwak “Biddy” Bo-seong, and evened the set score at 2-2. 토토사이트

After dropping the second and third sets and conceding match points, KT responded with a two-one-deal combination with a powerful crowd controller: Renekton-Rell-Tristana-Varus-Nautilus. It was clear that the KT coaching staff wanted to settle the game early with a strong laning game. T1 tried to counter KT’s rush with one-hit combinations such as Arox, Nico and Alista.

After starting the snowball with a quick counter to Zeus’ top lane carry, which was a thorn in their side in game two and three, KT got off to a good start by scoring additional points in the bot lane composition.

Continuing to widen the gap with back-to-back messenger pickups, KT started the dragon battle with a bang when Lee “Faker” Sang-hyuk’s exquisite ultimate took down “B.D.D.”, but a super carry by “Gi-in” effectively sealed the deal.

After the Nasher Baron hunt, KT won the ensuing brawl and widened the global gold gap to 10,000. The difference in power between the two teams was evident, and T1 couldn’t withstand KT’s wave after wave. KT landed another ace and destroyed T1’s last bastion, the nexus.
