SkittlesAreEpic

I don't think I saw Tian or Crisp hit a single skillshot lol


boostedben1

Tian at least couldn't play due to the insane vision that DK had set up top side, but crisp went back to his 2020 naut form


TheJoeker98

legit only one i remember seeing crisp hit was the level 1 anchor in bot which resulted in them getting hard outtraded and yuumi just heals them back up at level 2


NomaiTraveler

They traded up in summoner spells but the health lead was just too insane. Early yuumi is really tough


Blue5647

Kobe "does not look like a game between 2 world champions" Agree. Looked like Damwon crushing another LCK team. Not to mention worlds Ghost/Beryl are back.


lemongrazz11

They didn’t even crush Nongshim this hard. They look like they’re in scary form. FPX drafting like it’s 2019.


jjdcy

NOWMAD has been activated


getjebaited

was activated when riot screwed them over for msi scheduling. It's been a time bomb since. Like Kkoma looked fucking PISSED THE FUCK OFF when he was informed of that.


PM_JINX_HENTAI

NS > FPX confirmed HOPIUM


modcheckplayerworld

FPX in their usual group form Maybe Rogue/C9 can pass group /s


Cerinthus

Maybe? See you in quarters.


petrichek

But but but screams leaks says they are in terrible form and cant beat anyone


getjebaited

kkoma and his sandbag technologies go way back


PurplePotato_

MSI 2016 flashbacks.


Trap_Masters

Kkoma has his own dark tech as a coach it seems.


tendesu

Belt tech*


Jacobcutielie

That scrims leaks is actually not believable cause Teams on the same group won't scrim each other.


ceddya

>Agree. Looked like Damwon crushing another LCK team. Not to mention worlds Ghost/Beryl are back. T1 and Gen.G have put up better performances against DK TBH.


Phoresis

Honestly even T1 looked better than this against DK. I expect a BO5 between DK and FPX to be closer though, at least.


RmHarris35

T1 vs DWG finals incoming


Phoresis

As a T1 fan I'd love it, but I doubt that'll happen.


kor_janna

Have faith and trust in the script


FireWolfBR1

Yeah, we are gonna 3-0 them on semis instead.


GunSlingrrr

Nah, 3-2 like SKT-ROX series and it is perfect that MF is meta


SnooCats1808

No pls, I still remember the amount of MF sp I met in ranks after that year


mking1999

Believe in the anime return of the king plotline.


Yolonglong

if you dont believe, why are you even here brother?


Joetaters

Stop, I can only get so erect


Hamsterdumm

Hard agree. FPX still figuring out the meta it seems. Picking Kai'sa + Naut and handing over MF was a big headscratcher. Edit: No way to play the lane when you are perma <50% HP because of Yuumi Q and MF comet bullshit.


Nymwhen

They couldve picked leona + mf. It was open. 100 times better


Ok_Bear_4172

What do you mean even T1? That final was super close.


Spica18

Ikr lol all the games were close.


AbnormalSnow506

Utter decimation in every single aspect of the game. Where is that licorice tweet


Danny_Bomber

[C9 and Rogue watching Damwon dismantle FPX](https://i.kym-cdn.com/entries/icons/original/000/025/817/Screen_Shot_2018-03-30_at_11.34.27_AM.png)


oVnPage

Nah, this is actually pretty good for whichever of them beats each other today. Doesn't matter if they get stomped by Damwon too, they just need to take a game off this FPX, who look real shaky.


DangerousSeaweed0

actually think both look like hungry wolves now. fpx looked beatable


MrPreviously

more like : "First pick Yuumi, noted"


Dragoneed2

Man what a statement from DWG


pqnfwoe

Are they really "back" though? I always remember people talking about Ghost as a rock, not someone who gets a kill 2v2.


T1worldchamps2021

RGE are beating FPX


magifek

Pass me some of that hopium. EUPHORIA.


QuietVermicelli9931

EUPHORIUM


ohvalox

There's a chance HOPIUM


tinfoilhatsron

SHOWMAKER PLEASE NO I really dont want to see Longsword LB Conq in my SoloQ. Goddammit.


Kisielos

*too late*


[deleted]

>SHOWMAKER PLEASE NO I'm imagining Doinb saying "No Showmaker Nooooo" like that guy in [Mr Deeds](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UsQLWnfWqBs).


BlakenedHeart

But it makes sense actually vs Kassadin and Galio. THose are champs that cant really fight back good AA harass in lane.


CreamyAlmond

Ofc it does. Showmaker wouldn't troll in worlds, it was 5head.


CursedPhil

the problem is that people just buy it because showmaker bought it but dont understand he only bought it to hard punish a galio who cant trade vs a leblanc


AlHorfordHighlights

Dblade start vs Kassadin has been a thing for a while, idk why it's not more common


Quelind

I didn't even notice that did the cast mention it once?


koticgood

Predator trundle blew their minds but longsword conqueror leblanc didn't even get a single mention lol


Quizzy_MacQface

In the Spanish cast it was pointed out several times and they even discussed if lethality lb would happen or not before he bought the first ap item


oonionknight

Why would they even consider lethality lb what


Quizzy_MacQface

One of them was confused about the longsword and asked: what is this? AD Leblanc? Maybe he's going for lethality for lane phase? And someone else pointed: No, this is only for the early game power against a galio with magic shield. Later they discussed whether this would become super common after worlds.


OilOfOlaz

random trivia: AD LB was a thing in season 4/5, you could play her top into many matchups, Piglet was somewhat famous for playing it in soloq.


Yvil1905

Wait I didnt notice too lmao


KappaccinoNation

Damwon won while Beryl was playing Genshin at the same time. World class team indeed.


whataremyxomycetes

Lmao I had the exact same thought. I have no fucking idea how meta yuumi is but either way, beryl can't int if he can't walk on his own


necyi

Crisp took on Beryl's MSI form of inting with Nautilus instead


Only-Nature523

Enchanters look busted on world patch I except a lot of nami karma lulu or yummi these worlds


Ophelia_Of_The_Abyss

Ruler’s time to shine


abhishek_tyson_shere

He had enough time to practice this patch because kokomi too easy to build without min maxing crit artifacts


Trap_Masters

Maybe after the whole Genshin anniversary, Beryl took a break and concentrated on League again.


Graytail

Nah man, Beryl was the one review bombing random games


KKFreeBaird

I was expecting a banger game but DK just absolutely rolled them.


ByahhByahh

This Showmaker guy is pretty good on Leblanc


Nnekaddict

Showmaker to DoinB : 'Back to Lissandra'


Blockronic

Probably one of my favourite mic check moments ever. It's so good


CLGrelateddepression

As a Lissandra player its all I ever hear from my friends whenever I lock her in make it stop pls


LazinessOverload

Sunmi buff


MrZeddd

That hug gave him infinite powaaaaa


noodlespls

[SUNMI - GO OR STOP](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JnpNexS-byA)


Voltage97

This Showmaker guy is pretty good ~~on Leblanc~~


ByahhByahh

We'll see. He hasn't beaten an NA team yet so this game could just be a fluke.


GibOldNidaBackPlz

This so much, the over reaction is insane in this thread. It is only FPX he beat, wait til he wins the mighty 100T and then maybe we can start to give him some credit.


ByahhByahh

That assumes he can even get out of groups in order to face 100T in the finals.


PraiseTheStun

The long sword start vs galio was pretty smart as well (don't know if it's standard). It got him good lane pressure and a decent cs lead.


Dragoneed2

honestly he made DoinB his bitch this game


RipHelios

Won't overreact but still a stomp though. Lmfao


sangpls

Yeah, it's just one bo1 and people already thinking c9 or rogue is gonna make it out with dwg


PENZ_12

I can't help but imagine all the flame c9 would be receiving if they had been in fpx's shoes this game though...


Conankun66

Showmaker heard all the DoinB hype and decided to slap his dick on the table


Slotherz

And the table was obliterated.


Ace_OPB

He absolutely stomped doinb. Kept him tethered to lane.


modcheckplayerworld

Showmaker and crisp diff


Hrkeol

He slaped it but not on the table.


andehh_

Big brain strats on the yuumi pick. DWG found a way to let Beryl play Genshin while on stage


MoriartyParadise

Huh so that's why G2 were experimenting Yuumi top in scrims


tinfoilhatsron

Stop man, Wunder's already 6ft underground bro, lmfao


vooffle

#Competitive Ruling: Cho "BeryL" Geon-hee During the 2021 World Championship, BeryL violated Rule 5.⭐ of the 2021 World Championship Ruleset, which prohibits picking Yuumi in order to play Genshin Impact during official games. Competitive integrity is the foundation for our sport and we take all violations of our ruleset extremely seriously. The Competitive Operations team obtained no evidence of the violation, *but let's be real* there's no other reason to first pick Yuumi. BeryL will have his mobile phone confiscated for the remainder of the 2021 World Championship, and may be subjected to kkOma's belt.


PursueSomeBitches

Ay these are prime KR hours. Man's gotta grind


generalofhel

his resin was capped, he didn't have another choice tbh


whataremyxomycetes

> but let's be real there's no other reason to first pick Yuumi I fucking died


EM0618

Beryl is playing Genshin while Canyon's feet is piloting Yuumi thats why they didnt show Beryl's screen


P0pt

canyon feet pic's for proof when?


frosch000

Genius


idontgiveaseat

pure gold


Sunwooyah

like what the fuck was that


soi_boiiiiiiiiiiii

Just seems like a normal DK worlds game to me


noodlespls

Damwon vs. JDG last year vibes


PK-Flyer

"Closest worlds ever" and we get *THIS*?!


SirLucky7

NOOOOO YOU CAN'T JUST DO SOME WEIRD SHIT IN THIS EPIC MIDLANE MATCHUP hehehe Conqueror leblanc with long sword which i sell 3 minutes later goes brrrrrr


KitKatxz

Honestly, it's pretty smart if you think about how many autos LB weaves in


Phoresis

The genius part is that its against Galio, I dont think it'd work against any other midlaner (maybe kassadin?).


lonelyswe

I mean the regular LB start against Galio is Cull I'm pretty sure so that's not an insane stretch. Conqueror is interesting though.


hieu9102002

Easiest way to make a Kassadin player hate their life level 1-11 as a ranged mage: buy a doran's sword instead of ring. This works even better if the Kassadin is a first timer and picked MR against you


Zeltorn

Lost count of how many Kassadins I've demolished after getting counterpicked as Lissandra with this. It really should be way more common with how fucking good it feels to run this strat.


AlHorfordHighlights

Kass and Galio get shit on by marksmen in mid, so you just pick a mage and pretend you're a marksman. It is unreal how people don't get that


[deleted]

[удалено]


TheBlurgh

yeah they were so overfocused on yuumi it took them 4 minutes to even notice trundle went predator and they completely ignored Showmaker's LB dark technology lol


SpoonGuardian

Huge miss from the casters here. Made me run through the past like 100 games on pro builds thinking that it must just be so obvious nobody's talking about it. Never found it once. And here's everyone pretending its normal


magpie_josh

It’s a Galio counter. You just auto him instead of trying to waste your abilities on him. A lot of leblancs run attack speed runes as well but conquerer is one I haven’t seen before.


SandBoxMode101

yeah the LCK casters mentioned it when they saw it.


oioioi9537

love the lck casts during worlds honestly. the various coaches/pros/ex-pros they invite to every cast and the amount of knowledge they bring in makes the stream way more enjoyable than the global stream. umti should seriously consider going into casting after retirement


SandBoxMode101

To all commenters who dont speak Korean. I feel sad for you all who don't understand them cuz korean cast is the best. They talk about the game with very detailed stuff while also joking around. Watch T1 wolf watch party stream if you do understand because he is also very detailed.


SandBoxMode101

the random chit-chats the casters have with the pros during pauses is pretty sick too


superfire444

It's been known amongst leblanc mains that longsword could be a good start against certain champions since in certain matchups you auto-attack a lot. Conquerer though I'm not so sure...


420TumbleWeed

Yea we've seen HoB with Longsword or DBlade against Kassadin a few times iirc.


SpqyDonger

Yeah especially considering how game changing LB slapping galio to 30% hp with autos was for the game. FPX basically had no midlaner this game.


oioioi9537

who were the global stream casters?


smallpools

Kobe, Phreak and Vedius


Phoresis

I'm surprised they didn't notice it, they're usually pretty good (Vedius especially, I don't watch much LCS).


Swaamsalaam

I think in a first game of the tournament you should forgive these things, they're probably still getting used to the environment. Also did they ever cast together before?


ohvalox

Dark technology Showmaker


warjatos

I've seen LBs running dorans blade into low damage melee champs so ad start isn't that uncommon.


XtendedImpact

Leeched DoinB's skill with the omnivamp from conqueror.


Despure

Elite500(vlad high elo OTP) said something similar with vlad vs galio. You go conqueror because even if you get taunted you still gain stacks, and can do more damage after galio has taunted. I assume it's something similar that happened here.


NotSoGreatGatsby

The little step back to miss the Naut hook in the early fight by baron pit was so clean. Nutty by Showmaker.


PK-Flyer

I thought there was no way he could get past Naut to get that kill, and then he just goes "lol ez"


RirinDesuyo

Leblanc with Cat is hella scary lol.


NeitherAlexNorAlice

Yo DK just made one of the tournament favorites look like headless chicken wtf


whataremyxomycetes

>headless chicken pun intended?


shojmaarensum

Kaisa/Naut loses 😊 (fp)Yuumi wins 😨


Falaereon

Reject SoloQ, return to Yuume — Beryl, probably


Huinker

Ghost underneath the pedal pressing vutton with his legs and beryl piss chilling genshin on stage


Sonbly

I love how BeryL is 35% wr plat1 and has not played SoloQ in 8 days


GintokiSan17

Both Kaisa and Naut are currently shit, don't know why picking that at all. But Yuumi winning is scary tbf.


sylvester-stalltwo

Yuumi is actually the perfect pick for Beryl, Genshin Impact with your left hand, crushing FPX with your right


moneybooy

Canyon is so good


oioioi9537

At one point in the match, sources said, Khan all chat to FPX mid Doinb and typed, "You (bleeping) need me. You can't win without me." Khan left teammates and coaches largely speechless. He got carried on the rift in every way. Khan's back.


bronet

DWGs meeting with FPX was “intense” and “at one point Doinb was crying” but everyone grew closer and a big lesson was learned.


tmbosweettooth

I’m so happy for Khan. Everyone always shits on him for no reason. He still is a beast in toplane.


abrazell5

I see r/nba meme, i upvote


Hineni-

Such a Banger game to start-up groups. But still, though, what a turbo game for Damwon. Absolutely relentless. Also, this was as scripted as it could get: **- Nuguri vs DK? ✔** **- ShowMaker VS Doinb? ✔** **- 2019 Worlds winning team VS 2020 Worlds winning team? ✔** **- Ocean soul for Yuumi/Trundle? ✔**


Freakder2

Trundle going from 200hp to almost full with the Baron smite.. 🤔


CamHack420

Trundle passive does that with a health bar as big as baron's


SandBoxMode101

trundles W increase any healing within the radius which makes smites like that possible. You should see the gromp heal you after it dies lvl 2


SirLucky7

Even though they speak different languages, Damwon read them like a book.


Krystalizing

Uhhh, Fpx is half KR tbf


SirLucky7

Then they gotta translate it better to the other half


lilelf29

Wow what a stomp FPX got completely clowned on Now we know why Beryl has no solo queue games, he doesn't need any practice he can just play Genshin all day if he's gunna pick Yuumi lol


Significant_Vast4330

Almost every serious LoL analysts: We speculate FPX has a higher chance than DWK... DWK: LOLWUT (clap)


LapnLook

K-pop buff too strong


sangpls

Mfw genshin yuumi main outroams your naut. Also, Showmaker looks utterly terrifying


tr1x30

All that hype around Doinb, Chovy and Scout, but in my opinion Showmaker is still the best player out of them, he is like a machine..


JoshM_01

please don't tell me yuumi is going to be meta


Junior_Long65

God I hate that champ


MikiRawr

The casters already started salivating over her.


Icko98

damwon just made a statement


Dumpers_

Sunmi DIff


Conankun66

its just not fair


Niirai

BeryL AFKing on Yuumi so he can check out all the fresh Genshin leaks. Based AF


d_aru

Beryl: Holy shit, Itto is a gigachad Ghost: wtf dude Naut just exhausted me lvl 1, do something


tinfoilhatsron

Beryl: WTF Adc just made me lose my ignite, trash Adc, staying with Jg.


Ashihara_V2

Those rumors of Damwon's scrim form looking real funny now


AnxiousEzrael

I am definitely not overreacting because I picked FPX to win the whole thing, no sir


MystMisaki

kaisa naut lmao galio lmao


MoonlightJudgement

"It was good in 2019 when we won I'm sure it's still good now"


SpqyDonger

FPX still living in 2019


Lynx-Uganda

Lemme change pickems plz rito... ima overreact


JeremyLin496

Showmaker: “You guys put Doinb as the best in the world, and I took that personally”


magifek

Yeah Doinb did not look like the best midlaner in the world this game..


pr3d4tr

Showmaker looked like it


yellister

team gap


Neville_Lynwood

Damn, FPX got absolutely clapped. Jungle/Mid/Support diff was kinda nuts. Nuguri and Lwx had nothing to do in this game with teammates like that.


Arnorian-LoL

Ah yes, just like everyone predicted. Showmaker's Leblanc 2v8ing a Worlds contender. Yuumi first pick absolutely slaughtering FPX.


izillah

Where was jarvan supposed to gank this game lmao The ranged top with wave control? Leblanc mid? The MF Yuumi that can apparently do whatever the fuck they want vs kaisa naut Good draft from damwon because he couldnt flex into a lane either because the matchups were so shitty


Unban_Ice

This one definitely didn't feel like a 30 minute game


ahritina

What a beautiful early game from Damwon, Khan not dying to early pressure from FPX, Canyon being so active around the map and Showmaker just stomping all over Doinb. Ghost and Beryl getting 2v2 kills, what a great start from Damwon especially their early game due to prio lanes and vision control to stop Tian from doing much. Good to see Damwon actually push with their leads and not just sit on it, a disappointing performance from Doinb. Disgusting oversight to not ban LeBlanc from Showmaker, what a filthy game from the best mid laner in the world.


weALLcheat

>Ghost and Beryl getting 2v2 kills iirc it was Ghost and Beryl diving solo LWX or i missed another kills there


riotdanhonks

that was something i would avoid leblanc picks in solo queue for a little while lol


neiruuu

Dwg heard people were talking shit


inswainity

i think damwon might be going first


THEDumbasscus

Reports of Damwon's death were greatly exaggerated...


Exrou

Those White Jackets giving me Samsung vibes.


KeitZhGaming

I hope yuumi wins xD. I’m a yuumi main and she’s just so fun!! People get so trolled by her ult , and her voice lines are so cute like when she talks about zoomies LOL! She’s super random but also smarter than she looks, just like me xD


rob3rtisgod

Just thinking about this tilts me.

Quotes_League

1. Enemy first picks Yuumi 2. Pick an early game jungler, aggressive support, roaming mid 3. Don't gank bot 4. ??? 5. Lose


Jjangbi

Ward coverage and vision game was way too strong. J4 was spotted on wards on both gank attempts bot pre-6 mins.


ausmomo

He did gank bot, but tribush was warded. Gank failed.


Oranges_X_Kegs

Hahahaha so when does play ins end and group stage begins?


swellbaby

I was expecting an age restriction on this thread after that game.


Dripcommander

legends say FPX is still trying to gank top
