A fierce battle was expected, but the result was a one-sided match. Gen.G, who showed the potential of the ‘defending champion’, defeated the championship candidate, Dplus Kia, and achieved 4 consecutive victories, rising to ‘single 2nd place’. On the other hand, after August 8, 2021, Dplus Kia started a revenge match against Gen.G with 6 matches and 6 losses, but again tasted the bitter taste of defeat. With this, Dplus Kia’s opponent against Gen.G became 7 matches and 7 losses.
In the ‘2023 LoL Champions Korea (LCK)’ Spring Split held at LoL Park in Jongno-gu, Seoul on the 1st, Gen.G defeated Dplus Kia with a set score of 2-0.
In the first set, ‘Canyon’ Geon-bu Kim and Dplus’ combined offensive cut off Gen.G’s bot duo, signaling a pleasant start. Then, in order to solve the bottom, which Genji was at a disadvantage, he called ‘Peanut’ Wang-ho Han to create a kill, and the situation continued to be tense. Immediately, the two teams engaged in a large-scale engagement in front of the messenger. It was Dplus Kia that laughed. He added an object and 1 kill, and it became a stepping stone for Kim “Deft” Hyuk-gyu to grow. Then, Dplus Kia accumulated gold by releasing the obtained messenger into the tower.
However, Gen.G was also a strong team. He cut Heo Soo, the ‘Showmaker’ who was on the side alone, and took the Baron buff. In addition, Kim “Phase” Soo-hwan managed to get 3 kills by sweeping the kills in the battle in front of the dragon. It completely reversed the unfavorable flow.
The gold gap was over 7000 in an instant. Gen.G added 2 kills in mid and got another baron. Gen.G, who had all his chances to win, began to solidify. Around the 32nd minute, Gen.G, who created a large-scale battle in the midfield, completely overpowered Dplus, launched an ace, and destroyed the Nexus to take the first set.
Even in the second set, the first kill was in the hands of Dplus Kia. Hyeon-jun “Doran” Choi, who was pressing hard from the tower, was cut by Chang-dong “Kanna” Kim and “Canyon” together. Once again, Dplus gained an advantage in the early stages by catching Jeong “Chovy” Ji-hoon with a super play by “Canyon.”
On the other hand, Gen.G focused on developing ‘phase’ based on its bottom advantage. ‘Face’, who got a kill by cutting Kim “Kellin” Hyung-gyu from the front lane, clearly widened the growth gap with Kim “Deft” Hyuk-gyu. Even ‘Peanut’ and ‘Chovy’ caught ‘Showmaker’ and tied the kill score.
Around the 14th minute, the two tight teams faced off in front of the messenger. As ‘Doran’ was cut first, Dplus seemed to benefit, but soon after, ‘Showmaker’ was cut one after another. In the turbulent match, the winner was the top. After getting kills and dragons, Dplus managed the side by distributing personnel. However, they faced a crisis when ‘Showmaker’ and ‘Canyon’ were caught.
Because of this, the flow was completely leaning toward Gen.G. Immediately after, Genji completely downed D-Plus, who hastily engaged in a fight in front of the fourth dragon, widening the gold gap by more than 9000. Gen.G, who seized the victory, did not allow Dplus to counterattack, and pushed the Nexus with Xante of ‘Doran’, who had grown like a monster, to end the match. 스포츠토토
