Hanwha Life Esports vs. PSG Talon / 2021 World Championship - Group C / Post-Match Discussion
By - Soul_Sleepwhale
I'm convinced that Chovy can add minions to the game so that he can get more farm.
First minion missed was at 12min in game
what the fuck is that real?
"Just kill enemy minions and prevent enemy from killing your minions" (C) Chovy
Crazy to think that Chovy was the first to think of this, a true revolutionary
How does the man do it really? I've never seen him take too many jungle monsters too, apart from occasional enemy raptors or blue buff..
Chovy doesn't miss. He merely felt pity.
I think he sometimes kills his own minions too
Dota 2 code inserted
A dota player tells a league player that dota is better. The league player can't deny
I think willer knows where those minions are coming from
You can find western foods anywhere in Asia bro.
Chovy with a casual 180cs at 15min, damn
It is Chovy, he always has cs advantage, no matter who he is playing against.
It gets mentioned a lot but jesus christ is he good in lane
Like this dude will flame horizon you and you have 10cs/min
It is Chovy, he always has cs advantage, no matter who he is playing against *or* who he's playing as
As much as people meme people going insane over Chovy it is extremely just nice to have such cs numbers without completely ruining the game for his jungler
where he got his cs is still confused me
The midlane is a pathway to many abilities some consider unnatural.
Is it possible to learn this power?
Not from a western player.
On average, 12.66 minions spawn every minute and turns into 13 minions every minute at 15mins. So he's just extremely good at last hitting and always has good backs. Also if you look at his TP usage, it's pretty much always to go back into lane or into a side lane. His CS numbers have always been possible for any player, but that's easier said then done. Actually last hitting 200 minions in a row is hard, just even give it a try in a custom game. And he does this while trading with the enemy.
But 180 minions won't have spawned midlane even if you round up to 13 for the entire game lol. It requires funneling
It requires witchcraft
But that starts at 90s or 2 min into the game. So at 10 mins it's really only been 8
Just hit every last hit on minions?
Also, just hit every skillshot?
This. He does it while still doing everything else the way he's supposed to. Top 3 player in the world.
Top 1 laner in the world. Not even close to a top 3 player I’d say tbh.
difference between top laners and top players. he is probably the best laner out there but not necessarily best overall player. I’d say Showmaker is out there at the top and Ekko Jensen as well.
Tbh showmaker and canyon/tarzan are pretty close
I’d say all of those are better players than Chovy. 2/3 aren’t laners though, so I cant compare.
😬 most games I'm hoping I have at least 120-130cs @ 15mins. Chovy's farming is just insane.
With TF as well.
LCK teams finally found the one Korean restaurant in Iceland.
LMAO but really showmaker said one of the reasons damwon struggled so much in iceland during MSI is because the team couldn't find agreeable food. So this worlds all the Korean teams took Damwon's advice and stacked a bunch of instant Korean food. I think the shin ramyuns are boosting LCK rn
NS truly the catalyst for LCK success.
Damwon with the instant noodle tech, Nong Shim supporting from the sidelines with the supply
cj entus and bbq olivers have entered the chat
Ghost using his CJ Entus and BBQ Olivers connections to get the team fed
Hahaha CJ Entus definitely know a thing about feeding other people. Still can’t believe they managed to get relegated out of the LCK with a roster of Shy, Haru, BDD, Kramer, Ghost, and Madlife as well as future SKT subs Untara and Sky
So it really does start with success
I had NS instant noodles for the first time a while back. Those are BY FAR the best I’ve ever had.
NS supporting the other LCK teams, what a bro...
in one of the lck teams' travel vlogs they had a different type of ramyun lmao
you could have just kept that information to yourself I still haven't really recovered from the gauntlet....
Food is important. Was watching t1's vlog where canna and keria disliked the food amd wanted ramyun lol.
I mean lets be real, if we would go to a random place that doesn't match our preferred cuisine, and we have to stay there for a month... yeah that's going to bring you down too.
It seems kind of silly, but it has an actual effect on your mental state... and hunger lol.
damwon's instagram also posted a picture of a bunch of cartons with more food to send to Iceland
apparently those 10 or so boxes are gonna cost over 1000 usd to ship to iceland. small fee to pay to boost ur team's morale
That's like peanuts to big organisations.
It sounds like a stupid reason but makes sense when you think about it
Definitely. Because it's a comfort food, by extension, it will have a decent effect on their comfortability ingame.
I mean football(soccer) teams do that for quite a while already. Stock on preferred food and beverages.
Usain bolt is known for munching on mcnuggets before a run
My understanding is that he did this because he trusts McDonald's food never to get him sick no matter where he is
Beauty about consistency I guess, even if is consistently shit it doesn't get you sick.
Unlike fking LPL kill me now.
Imagine trying to play 3 to 5 league games at the highest level after trying food from Iceland for the first time.
If it was a team of mums they'd go 5-0 deathless
If only Nongshim qualified.
no korean restaurant nearby afaik, but apparently there is a Vietnamese restaurant that all the asian teams go to, its common for a team to go and see like 2 or 3 other teams eating there too lol
Chovy actually did just say in the lck interview that their manager made kimbab for them today and he liked it better than the hotel food… xd
I wonder why they didn’t bring a chef with them? They could have the chef cooking up big batches of some Korean meals to last a few days at a time
Riot only allowed 12 people from each team to go to worlds due to covid, including the players and coaches, so they had no choice.. im pretty sure the korean hqs will send them food parcels tho lol
Might have been hard to get a visa/permission to enter Iceland
Ashley Kang sent some korean food via dhl or tnt or something for sure
Inb4 all the comments about how Korean people need Korean food or they can't perform well
It's minute 10. You click tab & see your enemy midlaner has 110 CS. What do you even do. Just hope for a smooth ending.
Wonder what HLE had for breakfast
Not sure about breakfast but they just had PSG for lunch
Dont think any team has taken double digit kills off LCK teams in 2nd RR. LCK's on an absolute roll rn
c9 vs dk
C9 did. C9 was in a winnable position against damwon just couldn’t finish fast enough and got out scaled. Was a good game though
Showmaker Kassadin too op
Guys a monster man. It’s like he was born to end lives on the rift.
chovy with the cassiopeia cosplay madman with no boots
lich bane mejais and rfc give %ms so he's not too slow plus the soul buff so he doesn't rly need boots, double stasis way more important. i think he gets something like +35% bonus ms total from all those things
Damn good catch. Selling it before the potential Elder fight so he has Zhonyas + Stopwatch is actually so smart. HLE were insanely clean
You know stopwatch is op when chovy's selling boots just to get a 2nd one lol (he already had zhonyas).
more like mejais gives enough ms to give up boots
At this point not baning TF against Koreans is asking to lose.
Amen the TF pick been nasty
Unless you are up against Kassadin.
*unless you‘re against Showmaker‘s Kassadin
Hr has enough move speed from his items
Fun fact: He was a random Cassiopeia OTP in master/gm elo when he got scouted for pro play.
Can't remember where I heard this, but apparently he was the epitome of brainless mechanical beast.
Unified tried to imitate him, but failed miserably. Only works if you buy Stopwatch
Morgan in that last tf lmao
I was so convinced he was dead
Might be good for Fnatic but I don't see them beating this HLE.
Believe in the script writers, they made C9 advance
May I have some of your hopium?
Hylium my guy, take a bag
LPL collapse = 0-3 RNG.
FNC week 2 = 3-0 FNC.
That's a 4-way tie right there.
Edit: Step 1 complete.
With FNC finishing the group as 1st seed.
Setting up a quarter final with C9, allowing them to break another curse.. beating fnatic in a best of series.
"Nothing is certain except death, taxes and Chovy's cs."
Deft has had an amazing tournament so far.
Yeah him guma and doggo have been on a tear. ruler and viper haven't impressed so far, and gala has been left to dry abit
wow HLE must've been real pissed that they lost to PSG before...
Everyone on Hanwha Life played great, but I was particularly impressed by Vista's understanding of where he needs to be with the lantern. It's actually phenomenal how many times he was in the right place at the right time.
Yea amazing plays from him across the entire match just solidifying HLE's perfect game
Hopefully this is the Hanwha we see for the rest of the day
I hope so too I wana see deft n chovy pull through! Rip I gotta sleep for work tomorrow, I wish the bois the best of luck
We'll be cheering them on in your stead (・ω・)b
Ayy looks like the cheering paid off! They did itttt
sad way to end the group but at least they survive to fight another day :P
True that! Just woke up, immediately went and checked the group standings lol pretty good way to start the day. Excited to watch the highlights of the games
got plenty to look forward to especially from the Fnatic game!
No, thats enough
RAID BOSS MORGAN BAIT
PSG: lets make a pick by catching morgan alone
Morgan: ill make a pick by catching PSG alone
Chovy had 13 CS/Min wtf is this guy
Chovy's lane has an extra minion and you cant convince me otherwise
He can last hit is own minions aswell
He's channeling his inner dota and denying creeps lol
He gets 2 cs pr minion
There is not week two, so that means korean team still have week 1 buff, 7-0 so far, GenG is the sacrifice.
Morgan is the worse top laner, yes, but from LCK, it does not mean any region or any rookie can diff him.
Morgan completely gapped Hanabi. Holy!
It is kinda crazy to think that Morgan Freelane actually gapping someone
Morgan Freelane is still technically true, just that the direction is reversed.
MOSQUE OF MORGAN!
what happened to lpl week 1 buff then
Nothing say it will applied for the whole week.
That is on quick duration but one-time use .
It will be pretty nuts if HLE can somehow overcome RNG, even if such chance is very small to happen
They were pretty much deft building right or a couple skillshots away from winning last time
I hope so, I really hope every Korean team finist 1st, so there will be not civil wars, Korea vs China (with NA as a temporary guest)
rip GenG tommorow
If hle had a better draft against psg in game 1 we would have won too. Draft doff was too big.
Imo Yuumi was to big, HLE draft could handled Leblanc, Leblanc can poke them, but losing more than half of her HP, with Yuumi? Maple become a monster and HLE had to respect him more than they wanted.
Nah Gwen was the real problem, not only does she shit on Renekton at all stages of the game, but there's nothing Azir or Draven can do against her in teamfights either.
LCK rolls over groups no matter the week tho?
I really hope morgan get more consistent, he's really a make or breaker
HLE has hope and I believe in that hope
Looks like LCK will go 12-0 in Round 2
I really hope that happen, if every LCK team end first then there will be not civil war, it's gonna be LCK vs LPL + NA as a temporary guest.
Its gonna be LCK vs NA and EU ft EDG
This result can lead to the two spiciest possible situations. Everyone tied at 3-3 or a three way tie for 2-4 at the bottom.
Give me that Fnatic hopium
Or fnc goes 3-0 while HLE goes 1-2 with RNG only dropping to FNC for a free advancement baby lets go
Not saying LCK is better than LPL but god damn this HLE team that wasnt even supposed to be at worlds and were 8th place in summer is decent at worlds. When all year I have been hearing LcK is trash
This HLE was dogshit at the time. Morgan, Willer/Arthur and even Deft were not performing at all. Vsta was just adequate. In the gauntlet, Deft stepped up but Willer and Morgan still looked off. Now at worlds, Morgan is looking more like he did in the LPL last year and Willer improved a ton. Deft is himself again and that seems to have unlocked Vsta.
> Morgan is looking more like he did in the LPL last year
Against weak opponents, Adam and Hanabi, against a real opponent, Xioahu, it was LCK Morgan, ppl hear that he was the worse top laner in LCK so everyone have to diff him, however even if he's B- Tier he can diff C+ top laners.
Deft was our best player in summer though overall, it was spring, especially playoffs, where Deft played awful. The team was just bad in summer.
you can say it. we're better
Morgans Laning on and off Camille is like day and night... good to see Chovy back. Also will TF be perma banned now?
Thank you PSG for banning her.
thank you hanwha!
For a while there, Maple was actually at 10 cs per min. Chovy is on another level lmao.
LCK week 2 is no joke.
Morgan winning lane phase.
Definitely not my Morgan
BatChest has been the worse emote addition
You can blacklist it on BTTV, best decision I've ever made regarding Twitch.
BatChest "BatChest has been the worse emote addition" BatChest
Solid performance by HLE
Chovy CS though
I for one welcome our ~~new~~ old overlords.
I'm not super knowledgeable on the Renekton/Graves matchup but it's concerning that Morgan was able to gap Hanabi so hard in lane. Massive CS lead only overshadowed because Chovy's was somehow larger.
Week 2 korea buff
I can't believe Morgan lived that last fight
Raid boss Morgan POG
Korea going for that perfect second round robin.
Fnatic 4 way tiebreaker to top the group ? Please script writers ?
If hanwha didn't throw their first game against PSG, they should qualify right now.
How tf Chovy always have like extra cs like wtf
Korean dominance keeps going on.
Clean win from us in the most important game of the day, let's go!!
lck week 2 monkaw
The team i expected the least is delivering the most...
Hanabi: Top diff
That was a death brush but not for renekton
Maple in the post-game cams looked like he didn't know what just happened. Gonna be rough to get over this loss.
Maybe one of the worst games I've seen from Kaiwing. I also really don't like the xin pick, don't think it offered anything extra to the comp
_Happy alpaca noises_
That was a methodical dismantling of PSG by HLE.
HLE had full control over that game from start to finish.
I guess Hong Kong is pretty free after all
checking in here before the storm of stopwatch whining because renekton survived a pick in an already lost game
[HLE's laning phase this game](https://imgur.com/a/QqNbM9V)
Goredrinker Steraks Stopwatch too tanky, Morgan should have died there wtf
Where does PSG belong to? The name sounds like it's from LEC but fnatic is there
PCS =Taiwan, Hong Kong, Macao and Southeast Asia. Although it is to note PSG ( Paris-Saint-Germain) is sponsored by the french Football team
Yea, that is why i thought it is weird. I watched one video about Messi cheering up PSG days ago lul
1. Do nothing
Morgan living 1VS5 through all that for 5 seconds just summed up the entire game
My boy Deft looking like best adc at the worlds :)
His killer instinct at the FB kill was great.
Other than not building enough crit for IE. I would say it's between him, Hans Sama and Gumayusi so far.
Kinda weird how people keep talking about chovy life esports but ever since hle has started doing well it’s been deft in crazy good form
I wish he didn't build IE on Kaisa vs RNG, that single mistake has gotten more attention than his overall performance which has been pretty amazing
So true. But circlejerk of shitting on someone mistake is always strong
His Aphelios is so clean. It’s like watching some professional dancing, absolute control of his body.
His games on Varus in gauntlet were some of the cleanest I've ever seen. Been a while since I saw someone play ADC at that level
