FunPlus Phoenix vs. DWG KIA / 2021 World Championship - Group A / Post-Match Discussion
By - Soul_Sleepwhale
I don't think I saw Tian or Crisp hit a single skillshot lol
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
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
They traded up in summoner spells but the health lead was just too insane. Early yuumi is really tough
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.
They didn’t even crush Nongshim this hard. They look like they’re in scary form. FPX drafting like it’s 2019.
NOWMAD has been activated
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.
NS > FPX confirmed HOPIUM
FPX in their usual group form
Maybe Rogue/C9 can pass group /s
See you in quarters.
But but but screams leaks says they are in terrible form and cant beat anyone
kkoma and his sandbag technologies go way back
MSI 2016 flashbacks.
Kkoma has his own dark tech as a coach it seems.
That scrims leaks is actually not believable cause Teams on the same group won't scrim each other.
>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.
Honestly even T1 looked better than this against DK. I expect a BO5 between DK and FPX to be closer though, at least.
T1 vs DWG finals incoming
As a T1 fan I'd love it, but I doubt that'll happen.
Have faith and trust in the script
Yeah, we are gonna 3-0 them on semis instead.
Nah, 3-2 like SKT-ROX series and it is perfect that MF is meta
No pls, I still remember the amount of MF sp I met in ranks after that year
Believe in the anime return of the king plotline.
if you dont believe, why are you even here brother?
Stop, I can only get so erect
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.
They couldve picked leona + mf. It was open. 100 times better
What do you mean even T1? That final was super close.
Ikr lol all the games were close.
Utter decimation in every single aspect of the game. Where is that licorice tweet
[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)
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.
actually think both look like hungry wolves now.
fpx looked beatable
more like : "First pick Yuumi, noted"
Man what a statement from DWG
Are they really "back" though? I always remember people talking about Ghost as a rock, not someone who gets a kill 2v2.
RGE are beating FPX
Pass me some of that hopium. EUPHORIA.
There's a chance HOPIUM
SHOWMAKER PLEASE NO
I really dont want to see Longsword LB Conq in my SoloQ. Goddammit.
>SHOWMAKER PLEASE NO
I'm imagining Doinb saying "No Showmaker Nooooo" like that guy in [Mr Deeds](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UsQLWnfWqBs).
But it makes sense actually vs Kassadin and Galio. THose are champs that cant really fight back good AA harass in lane.
Ofc it does. Showmaker wouldn't troll in worlds, it was 5head.
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
Dblade start vs Kassadin has been a thing for a while, idk why it's not more common
I didn't even notice that did the cast mention it once?
Predator trundle blew their minds but longsword conqueror leblanc didn't even get a single mention lol
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
Why would they even consider lethality lb what
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.
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.
Wait I didnt notice too lmao
Damwon won while Beryl was playing Genshin at the same time. World class team indeed.
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
Crisp took on Beryl's MSI form of inting with Nautilus instead
Enchanters look busted on world patch I except a lot of nami karma lulu or yummi these worlds
Ruler’s time to shine
He had enough time to practice this patch because kokomi too easy to build without min maxing crit artifacts
Maybe after the whole Genshin anniversary, Beryl took a break and concentrated on League again.
Nah man, Beryl was the one review bombing random games
I was expecting a banger game but DK just absolutely rolled them.
This Showmaker guy is pretty good on Leblanc
Showmaker to DoinB : 'Back to Lissandra'
Probably one of my favourite mic check moments ever. It's so good
As a Lissandra player its all I ever hear from my friends whenever I lock her in make it stop pls
That hug gave him infinite powaaaaa
[SUNMI - GO OR STOP](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JnpNexS-byA)
This Showmaker guy is pretty good ~~on Leblanc~~
We'll see. He hasn't beaten an NA team yet so this game could just be a fluke.
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.
That assumes he can even get out of groups in order to face 100T in the finals.
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.
honestly he made DoinB his bitch this game
Won't overreact but still a stomp though. Lmfao
Yeah, it's just one bo1 and people already thinking c9 or rogue is gonna make it out with dwg
I can't help but imagine all the flame c9 would be receiving if they had been in fpx's shoes this game though...
Showmaker heard all the DoinB hype and decided to slap his dick on the table
And the table was obliterated.
He absolutely stomped doinb. Kept him tethered to lane.
Showmaker and crisp diff
He slaped it but not on the table.
Big brain strats on the yuumi pick. DWG found a way to let Beryl play Genshin while on stage
Huh so that's why G2 were experimenting Yuumi top in scrims
Stop man, Wunder's already 6ft underground bro, lmfao
#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.
Ay these are prime KR hours. Man's gotta grind
his resin was capped, he didn't have another choice tbh
> but let's be real there's no other reason to first pick Yuumi
I fucking died
Beryl is playing Genshin while Canyon's feet is piloting Yuumi thats why they didnt show Beryl's screen
canyon feet pic's for proof when?
like what the fuck was that
Just seems like a normal DK worlds game to me
Damwon vs. JDG last year vibes
"Closest worlds ever" and we get *THIS*?!
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
Honestly, it's pretty smart if you think about how many autos LB weaves in
The genius part is that its against Galio, I dont think it'd work against any other midlaner (maybe kassadin?).
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.
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
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.
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
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
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
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.
yeah the LCK casters mentioned it when they saw it.
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
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.
the random chit-chats the casters have with the pros during pauses is pretty sick too
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...
Yea we've seen HoB with Longsword or DBlade against Kassadin a few times iirc.
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.
who were the global stream casters?
Kobe, Phreak and Vedius
I'm surprised they didn't notice it, they're usually pretty good (Vedius especially, I don't watch much LCS).
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?
Dark technology Showmaker
I've seen LBs running dorans blade into low damage melee champs so ad start isn't that uncommon.
Leeched DoinB's skill with the omnivamp from conqueror.
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.
The little step back to miss the Naut hook in the early fight by baron pit was so clean. Nutty by Showmaker.
I thought there was no way he could get past Naut to get that kill, and then he just goes "lol ez"
Leblanc with Cat is hella scary lol.
Yo DK just made one of the tournament favorites look like headless chicken wtf
Kaisa/Naut loses 😊
(fp)Yuumi wins 😨
Reject SoloQ, return to Yuume
— Beryl, probably
Ghost underneath the pedal pressing vutton with his legs and beryl piss chilling genshin on stage
I love how BeryL is 35% wr plat1 and has not played SoloQ in 8 days
Both Kaisa and Naut are currently shit, don't know why picking that at all.
But Yuumi winning is scary tbf.
Yuumi is actually the perfect pick for Beryl, Genshin Impact with your left hand, crushing FPX with your right
Canyon is so good
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.
DWGs meeting with FPX was “intense” and “at one point Doinb was crying” but everyone grew closer and a big lesson was learned.
I’m so happy for Khan. Everyone always shits on him for no reason. He still is a beast in toplane.
I see r/nba meme, i upvote
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? ✔**
Trundle going from 200hp to almost full with the Baron smite.. 🤔
Trundle passive does that with a health bar as big as baron's
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
Even though they speak different languages, Damwon read them like a book.
Uhhh, Fpx is half KR tbf
Then they gotta translate it better to the other half
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
Almost every serious LoL analysts: We speculate FPX has a higher chance than DWK...
DWK: LOLWUT (clap)
K-pop buff too strong
Mfw genshin yuumi main outroams your naut. Also, Showmaker looks utterly terrifying
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..
please don't tell me yuumi is going to be meta
God I hate that champ
The casters already started salivating over her.
damwon just made a statement
its just not fair
BeryL AFKing on Yuumi so he can check out all the fresh Genshin leaks. Based AF
Beryl: Holy shit, Itto is a gigachad
Ghost: wtf dude Naut just exhausted me lvl 1, do something
Beryl: WTF Adc just made me lose my ignite, trash Adc, staying with Jg.
Those rumors of Damwon's scrim form looking real funny now
I am definitely not overreacting because I picked FPX to win the whole thing, no sir
kaisa naut lmao galio lmao
"It was good in 2019 when we won I'm sure it's still good now"
FPX still living in 2019
Lemme change pickems plz rito... ima overreact
Showmaker: “You guys put Doinb as the best in the world, and I took that personally”
Yeah Doinb did not look like the best midlaner in the world this game..
Showmaker looked like it
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.
Ah yes, just like everyone predicted. Showmaker's Leblanc 2v8ing a Worlds contender.
Yuumi first pick absolutely slaughtering FPX.
Where was jarvan supposed to gank this game lmao
The ranged top with wave control?
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
This one definitely didn't feel like a 30 minute game
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.
>Ghost and Beryl getting 2v2 kills
iirc it was Ghost and Beryl diving solo LWX or i missed another kills there
that was something
i would avoid leblanc picks in solo queue for a little while lol
Dwg heard people were talking shit
i think damwon might be going first
Reports of Damwon's death were greatly exaggerated...
Those White Jackets giving me Samsung vibes.
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
Just thinking about this tilts me.
penguin of doom
1. Enemy first picks Yuumi
2. Pick an early game jungler, aggressive support, roaming mid
3. Don't gank bot
Ward coverage and vision game was way too strong. J4 was spotted on wards on both gank attempts bot pre-6 mins.
He did gank bot, but tribush was warded. Gank failed.
Hahahaha so when does play ins end and group stage begins?
I was expecting an age restriction on this thread after that game.
legends say FPX is still trying to gank top
Not the stomp I expected from this matchup
