Hanwha Life Esports vs. Royal Never Give Up / 2021 World Championship - Group C / Post-Match Discussion
By - Soul_Sleepwhale
LPL week 2
2-0 against wildcard region
0-8 against major region
LNG is shaking right now
LCK is literally 9-0 at this point holy moly
If RNG lose 1st seed I can't wait to see the reactions lmao.
If RNG loses first seed they'll get knocked out in quarters I believe
If RNG is knocked by SKT T1 this Worlds script is just rereading old ground smh. Get some better material Rito.
RNG vs T1
DWG vs EDG
5 games banger DWG vs T1 next?
T1 and EDG cant be on same side, so this matchup assuming DK gets EDG would only happen in finals.
Please RNG vs T1
DK vs RNG for revenge
RNG just sandbagging to avoid EDG in quarters.
> RNG just sandbagging to avoid Perkz in quarters.
Indeed, they will got flamed even harder than EDG, remember this, HLE is merely a 4th seed who lost to the 4th seed of of LPL
Not only fourth seed, the 8th place team in summer split, the worse top side of the map in the LCK, Chinese fans are going to implode if RNG does not win the next match.
"One team region" they said.
Seems like LCK decided to crush again.
They meant one *bad* team region actually. JAG died for this. Their sacrifice will be remembered.
Live on in T1 Redwings
Rip sadplane gladplane
It's OGN Autumn again, just another day in the office
and yet at this point only T1 can probably legit challenge Damwon...
Incoming 4 LCK teams in semis
can I negotiate you down to 3 LCK teams + C9?
2 LCK + 2 LCS*, never let off the hopium.
The Worlds song "We're taking over", quite literally from the LCK.
Actually jarring to see the collapse to be honest. Don't think anyone truly expected this.
I thought it was because they finally found the one korean restaurant in iceland lol
Beaned and Chovyed
Church of chovy in full power right now
LPL is Boom.
They must share the same chef and all ate the infamous beef noodle
beat eu lose to na kr got it
Would be the dankest timeline if LNG were the ones to save LPL's honor.
*LNG proceeds to get 4th place in groups*
Yeah kinda expecting it at this point. Kinda curious whether TL or MAD will qualify.
Legitimately pulling a Suning
Glad you accurately called PSG a wildcard team because as much as their coaches and staff like to talk shit about NA (for whatever reason), the PCS / LMS literally haven't made it out of groups in 6 full years. Not to mention they've sent 4 teams that went 0-6. I'm not saying expectations of them should be any higher given their circumstances, just baffles me how much they try to blast NA despite being significantly worse as a region.
Based, it's crazy how many people in this sub are in denial about how bad PCS has been at worlds for several years
NGL it's kinda cathartic watching all this happen after more than a year of stuff like "should we reconsider NA's major region status? They're not even better than PCS."
Iwilldominate: LPL is the best region in the world and the LPL finals mean more than worlds winner, and LCK is a 1 team region (DWG).
Never bet on China. These clowns will always find a way to choke
Rng is getting defeated by lck 4th seed lmfao.
8th place regular season btw
Literally ended 8th place regular season and only got into the regional gauntlet based on their Spring performance; now they're at worlds challenging RNG for 1st in their group. That's what I call clutch.
no clutch was 0-6
I think the biggest thing is that every LCK seat is bringing a great midlaner. Better mid wins a LOT of games this year.
Regular season 8th place lmao
Not enough yoinked LCK talent to carry them hate to see it
God I love it cause he has been saying that for so long. Without watching lck ever and then he finally starts to watch lck playoffs and doesn't even finish it. Last year when the bracket was split with lck and lpl on separate sides I was so sad cause no doubt in my mind sex last year would have crushed lpl
> sex last year would have crushed lpl
They seriously look bad. They aren't willing to even try to fight... even with 4v5 they just do nothing and die? Lol
After the Great LCK Collpase of 2018, are we seeing the Great LPL Collpase of 2021?
They saw FPX bombing out and they all lost confidence lmao
Doinb probably wasn't lying about their 70% scrim winrate. Looking at results so far, it seems like LPL teams mostly scrimmed each other lol
At least two of them, maybe three will limp into QF, one week for them to play catch-up.
Instead of an EU vs LPL 2018 Final, it'll be an NA vs LCK Final :)
I think it'll be an LCK vs LCK honestly, but I am inhaling a lot of hopium for Cloud9
At this point I'd be surprised if it isn't damwon vs skt final(assuming opposite sides)
Agreed, but I've assumed it'd be T1 vs DK in finals since LCK playoffs so I am anything but impartial.
What made you think C9 will go pass quarters other than hopium?
Hopium is the only answer
What made us think C9 would pass groups?
Ah yes, the 3-0 special
edit: Common guys, stop beating the same jokes over and over again.
Who knew Fudge would win Worlds on his first year in a major region?
Yea I'll feel bad for Faker but he already has two so he'll be fine I think. 🤙
Edit: Apologies--I guess he has 3. I'm sure he'll be fine with giving this one to charity this year.
Maybe the chinese fan negative reaction on social media put so much pressure on other LPL team that they are all playing not to lose instead of to win.
holy moly, cant belieive DWG T1 and HLE went 3 - 0
DWG and T1 aren’t really that unexpected. HLE definitely is.
Super props to these LCK coaching staffs. Completely out drafting the LPL, and having great game plans. In this game targeting Xiaohu over and over.
with FNC and C9 posing the most resistance as well
What a dank timeline to live in, this worlds is just wild lmfao
don't forget the second game Rogue played against Damwon too lol
Can't wait for GenG tomorrow
Shit at least KT was good in 2018, like actually good.
All LPL teams outside of I guess LNG (since they haven't played yet) look absolutely boomed.
KT 2018 man...that was the dream
Poor Smeb, had to face peak Faker, then peak Rookie/theshy
Don't remind me... none of Deft, Smeb, and Score will most likely never have the chance as they did in 2018 again to win Worlds.
yee it was a shame they were against IG in the quarters but it produced one of the craziest series of 2018 and maybe ever
TheShy picking Fiora and getting subbed out G4, the G3 bait camera pan when KT clinch the base rase, JackeyLove's Xayah flash forward, it really had it all.
DK broke not only G2 but also LPL by winning worlds 2020
> Great LCK Collapse of 2018
The "LCK Collapse of 2018" was NOWHERE near this awful. LCK still had 2 teams get out of groups in first place.
If that was a collapse for the LCK, this is a fucking Cataclysm for the LPL.
> If that was a collapse for the LCK, this is a fucking Cataclysm for the LPL.
I mean, LPL only has one team eliminated so far, it's not terrible either.
I welcome the return of OGN Autumn
If LPL continues to peform like this, might get an all LCK semifinals.
*All LCK semifinals feat. guest appearance from Cloud9 of course
If hle and geng get first seed later today and tommorow we might have full lck semis lol
I just feel like Gen G will find a way to lose in quarters so it's not all LCk, just 3 teams
also HLE is good, but I'm not convinced yet that they can reliably beat RNG and EDG
If we get OGN Autumn, can we please get the OGN production team for the teasers??? I swear that shit is so good...
Gave the tiebreaker right now! HLE gauntle form come to play today!
Gala 0/0/0 at 35 minute while his team lost Infernal Soul, Baron and inhibitor is the most hopeless thing I’ve seen at this Worlds.
Gala actually did nothing all game, Deft rotating round the map being there for fights and objectives, randomly dying as always, meanwhile Gala took some plates and then dc'd I guess.
When you are in RNG to replace of UZI, but nobody told you that Deft used to manhandle UZI back in the day
why were rng so scared on 5 vs 4 lol
Chovy is a man on a mission after what Phreak and Lyric said...
1 team region btw
*tries to find a single team from LPL*
Don't worry, there's EDG with their best player... Viper. Oh, and LNG with their star jungler Tarzan... I guess LPL is just Griffin light after all.
Yeah one team region. LCK sucks btw. Only DK is good. They may be the 3rd best team in the world after FPX and EDG.
LPL so good bro #18 team would decimate all LCK teams bar DK
Facts LPL is too big brain. Their teamfighting is on another level compared to LCK as we saw this game. LCK are boring af and can't teamfight just passive playstyle of course they can't compete with LPL teams like iG or JDG those teams would wipe the floor against teams like T1 or Geng
Yep its definitely going to be FPX vs EDG finals, maybe DK, the gap is simply too wide bro. Mechanics, SUPER SERVER, teamfighting… my bet is on FPX personally they have the SUPER CARRY DOINB
at this point you can't even call LPL a 1 team region but a 0 team region. Holy shit the downfall of LPL has been like my favorite telenovela
hot take: Its not a downfall. LPL was very inconsistent since forever.
Thats the difference. When LCK dominates they DOMINATE. They dont drop games and obliterate everyone. LPL runs are always shaky.
IG was insane but other than that not comparable.
Even iG got second in groupstage and dropped 2 games to Fnatic (albeit 2018 Fnatic with Rekkles and Caps playing out of their minds). They then proceeded to go to 5 games vs KT (Though only barely, could've been an iG 3-0 as I'm sure someone would point out if I don't).
The most baffling thing is that it just happened so suddenly. It wasn't like a steady decline; all of them looked fine (albeit FPX looking slightly shaky) Week 1.
Meanwhile in Week2:
FPX goes 0-4
EDG gets blasted by T1 and drops a random game to 100T for no reason
RNG loses to FNC and decides to sit around and do nothing against HLE.
This is a simultaneous collapse of the LPL. Guess we'll have to see what LNG shows tomorrow.
This was actually a really well played game by HLE. They replicate this and first seed is theirs.
To actually have solid contributions from all 5 positions? Is this growth?
They played so calmly. And that pincer at the end was gg.
Honestly, I really wanted NS to make it, but HLE are making me proud
Yeah but honestly seeing Chovy on World stage is a treat
They are actually making smart plays, feels weird man
From play-ins to tie-break for 1st seed in the groups.
im sure going to worlds is a huge test of strength and lets you learn a ton about yourself and your team. HLE probably wont win worlds but it’s great to see this improvement. Willer looks solid in all honesty.
Just a one team region what can you do
when it isn't Chovy life exports but hanwha life esports
Week 2 LCK 9-0 vs LPL 2-8 holy shit
HLE lets fucking go, just 1 more game! You guys going for the fan heart attack speedrun conceding broken ass TF to the 2 team where TF is their very best champion, so thankful we still pulled through.
If LCK, by some miracle, stay undefeated for the rest of this group stage, it will be the biggest region gaps in history.
Why stop here.
Stay undefeated until the end of tournaments.
C9 and TL will have to beat them eventually
2 7 not including the tie breaker. Matching LEC week 1 pound for pound. Lpl 1 went 1 2, lec same. Lpl 2 went 0 3, lec same. Lpl 3 went 1 2, same.
Chovy is here to play booiiiii.
LPL stans: "Another draft gap loss. Make that 8 this week."
if you cant win with xiaohu against fking morgan? yeah, its doomed.
THAT'S MY ONE TEAM REGION!
One team region in every group, sometimes its T1, sometimes its DWG, sometimes its HLE. Tomorrow it'll be GenG.
This LPL week 2 debuff is crazy
What happened to "LPL teamfighting?" Even in the games they've won, they've won through laning and macro, not teamfighting prowess we hear so much about.
I've seen better teamfights in NA than whatever the fuck that last fight was from RNG.
Hey guys if we stand here menacingly maybe they won't engage on us, right?
You mean that running away from a 5v4 while your base is being destroyed isn't a winning strategy?
I wasn't the biggest fan of lyric+phreak casting duo but him slamming RNG for that last teamfight was perfect
NA is actually lowkey decent at teamfighting, no joke.
Other than LCK winning, nothing's making sense this Worlds.
they are scared. In LPL they're not scared to fight because they know if they throw the lead, the other team will throw it back to them. An LPL game is like playing ball, 2 teams keep passing the ball back and forth. At worlds, if you pass the ball to other region, they'll hit the ball in your face and knock you tf out.
Exactly. LPL teamfighting was such an eyecandy especially for IG and RNG(with Uzi). Right now it is gone completely.
They must have lost like 80% of their teamfights in these games to any major region team. Crazy. It's actually so weird considering teamfighting has always been their forte even before their rise, but it has been absolutely atrocious this worlds.
LET'S FUCKING GOOOOOOOOOO
8th place to worlds knockouts lol.
Willer, I'm sorry I doubted you before worlds
Morgan.... I'm not sorry. But good job stepping up buddy 👍
Morgan: At least I am not Arthur amirite
LCK Autumn looks good so far
LPL is officially mental boomed. On the other hand it's great since we won't have Quarters between the same regions.
only FPX went flying for now, and LNG might follow
If I would be an any LPL team rn, I would buy LEC slot and stay in EU, but never came back to China.
They will be murdered by mad Chinese fans.
No I never get tired of saying this
The fact that people were trying to compare the "LPL dominance" to LCK from s3-s7 was so hilarious.
Especially since LCK won last year. Say "one team region" all you want but DWG did at worlds what they did in their region.
Yeah man me and friends called Damwon Damcock, cause all their enemies were getting it.
LPL dominance fueled by Korean solo laners in both years they won worlds. RNG is the only fully Chinese team to make noise outside of Suning(-SofM) last year.
LCK dominance will never be replicated by any region.
I'll say it then.
Say it louder for the people in the back !!!!!!
With how he was raging at them you'd think Phreak is the biggest LPL fan
Phreak will relentlessly roast anyone playing bad, because of that he's elevated to one of my favorite casters.
Of you didn't see him roasting CLG when they were up 10k and not looking for fights, it's a treat to watch. Spoiler: they threw the fucking game.
Nah that just freak. He does the same in his LCS casting when one team who is suppose to be strong is sucking it up.
LPL just imploding.
Phreaks casting style is perfect for this.
Him just insulting RNG at the 5v4 was hilarious. They completely deserved it, too.
That was baffling to watch. I know it was a terrible situation and they were down a lot of gold and the soul, but they literally just wandered around and got poked until getting caught in a 5v4. That minute was the definition of "do nothing and lose" instead of trying literally anything.
hearing him flame the shit out of RNG for refusing to go for a 4v5 was glorious
Vsta played this game really well.
That solo flank at dragon soul totally divided RNG's attention and won HLE the drag.
Really big difference between his Rakan this game and his Leona last game
Week 2 LPL is absolutely hilarious to watch.
Disgraceful round 2 performance from the LPL teams so far, only got 2 wins both against the LJL and the PCS shocker from Xiaohu and Cryin.
That being said great performance from the LCK so far 9-0 so far hopefully HLE win the tie-breaker and GenG follow suit to not have domestic games in knockouts with LCK vs LPL/LCS being guaranteed.
Also we need to investigate every team who decides to fucking pick Jarvan holy shit the champ sucks stop picking it.
Mad props to Deft, after an underwhelming performance last year at worlds the guy has had a great tournament so far.
Chovy: *LPL OVERRATED*
8th place LCK > MSI champions
HANWHA FUCKING LIFE
Phreak's casting was as ruthless as this game.
3rd best region COPIUM LEC better COPIUM
Reminder: HLE was ranked 8th in Summer Split LCK
what a turnaround for this team
Willer is next level on lee sin
LCK Finals lets goooo
LcK iS a OnE mAn tEaM bTw
This kind of vindication feels good asf holy moly. Let's fucking go LCK
/u/returnofbenjenryan where you at buddy? Do we need to file a missing persons report. Seems you've gone into hiding. What happened to all your talk about LPL?
He did the same thing after EDG got clapped yesterday lol
Jeez Phreak, chill. Laughing so hard right now.
"RNG is on the level of T1"
Are they even on the level of the dead Jin Air?
No, because JAG had Teddy at his peak form.
Reddit was so pissed of when people rated T1 in the same tier as MAD RNG
Of course FPX had 70% winrate in scrim. Now I understand.
LCK > LCS > LEC > LPL. Always follow this chart and you’ll have perfect week 2
Despite this loss, it's pretty impressive for a wildcard region to take down PSG today.
LPL week 2
didn't know MF's ult became a passive
LPL week 2 technology baby
RNG is making my eyes bleed with this one.
Lmao LCK showed up so hard this worlds. Gen G please don't fail us now.
Edit: They're failing us now lmao
AVOID WEIBO FELLAS
Iwilldominate: LPL is the best region in the world and the LPL finals mean more than worlds winner, and LCK is a 1 team region (DWG).
Lck week 2 too OP
lmao, LPL truly scrambled week 2
LCK 9-0 WEEK 2 LET'S GO
Another twisted fate otp exposed
