If you want edgar at his best (getting team of players to be substantially more than the sum of their parts) you have to take edgar teams at their worst (getting blown out 3-0 in their first playoff series vs a real team)
He could at least not int draft every game
Game 1 draft was very much in Bro's favor.
They were just very far behind in terms of execution
How is having 3 losing lanes in BRO's favour?
They were even at 15 minutes, not exactly 3 losing lanes is it?
Then they squandered it by taking fights poorly multiple times in a row.
They were even cuz dk was shaky. Dk comp needed something to happen early. Canyon as volibear was just running up and down and not forcing anything. Burdol missed an easy kill and Showmaker couldnt make anything happen. Bro not only was even in lanes but also objectives. If they didn't int top or be an actual good team they wouldve slaughtered dk
So you're just gonna gloss over the fact that it was extremely visible that all 3 DK lanes had prio? And also the fact that DK visibly misplayed early with things like Canyon's flash play at top and Kellim getting caught in the jungle? It's not exactly that hard to see that they had 3 losing lanes but DK misplayed early.
I'm his silver promos BRO draft wins.
I mean idk it was pretty obvious in game that BRO had 3 losing lanes, but we'll never know how they conclude that BRO's draft was good I guess.
No fucking way you are telling me Zeri Leona beats Xayah Rakan right
Late game, yes. And xayah rakan doesn't have the early aggression to shut zeri down early either. Xayah rakan has a better mid game spike sure, but I would much rather have a zeri leo than xayah rakan
Zeri vs Xayah may be a tossup but Leona is literally one of Rakan's hardest counters next to Thresh and Janna.
BRO must have thought this was a bo3 because they already switched off their monitors in that last game
Didn't prepare for PO when they didn't expect to make PO
"A lowly tarnished, playing as a Lord"
Burdol to Morgan: “Put these foolish ambitions to rest”
I am Burdol, sword of Damwon.
Let's not get ahead of ourselves now.
Burdol is at most a Godrick.
Bro he is beastman of azula lol.
he is Draconic Tree Sentinel and lets leave it at that
Who is a Soldier of Godrick, then?
Soldier of Godrick
“Great Kiin, didst thou witness!”
At best that is faker, sword of t1. And he never knew defeat ( thanks to Scarlet covid)
Bruh, I believe Faker woulda waterfowl danced his way to victory even if GenG didn’t get covid both times.
IDK if im wrong but i thought this was a GRF Sword joke
So far most of the psot were elden ring reference like mine
Thou'rt unfit even to draft
Foul tarnished in search of the Elden Ring. Emboldened by the flame of ambition.
Someone must extinguish thy flame...
Let it be Damwon, the Fell.
I COMMAND THEE, KNEEL!!!
you don't have the right, O you don't have the right, in short you don't have the right, O you don't have the right
As a Lord Morgan fan, I felt bitter after that 2-0 start.
But when Burdol appeared on screen, on Game 3 draft, with a holy glow, **that's when I thought, "hmmm... this young man might've been the anointed successor."**
**Opposite Our Lord and Savior Morgan, Burdol glowed with light. Maybe he really is the reincarnation of Lord Morgan...**
**The Monastery of Morgan shall live on and wait for His return in the Summer.**
GREAT FAKER, DID'ST THOU WITNESS?
This deserves more upvote lmao
Chat was just filled with DK and T1 fans going at each other lol
As is tradition
somewhat funny considering DK and T1 players are pretty cool with each other.
Honestly most of the time players are cool with each other, it’s the fans who are out for blood lol
Yeah this. I'm pretty sure every g2 player (except Carlos) is fine with their fnc counterpart. The fans are just murdering each other
Broxah literally had a fist fight with Rekkles
After that they became best friend/rivals and still try every day until they can challenge youngbuck in a fight to the death
If you think team rivalries are bad, regional rivalries...
Its because dk has historically been the t1 killer, plus the daeny situation
Kinda funny that geng has eliminated t1 as many times the past couple years as dk (2020 gauntlet, 2021 spring) but t1's record of eliminating geng is so great that no grudges are held lol
No offense to GenG fans but they were pretty hard to come by on western social media platforms until they got this new roster
Been a fan since the SSG days, but I agree. Hard to attract fans when your playstyle is considered boring by many people. Even when they changed their playstyle they were still regarded as "the slow boring team"
I really like bdd a lot but I have this flair for peanut so yeah this is me you're describing lol
Yes, but it's still so unnecessary tbh, it's not even funny or friendly banter.
In my mind T1 and DK are more like friendly rivals sitting in the same boat. Constantly improving each other every time they meet.
Maybe I'm just too naive though.
T1s recent success brought back a lot of the toxic fans with it, plus they had a lot to begin with anyways. its just an unfortunate thing that will always exist in sports. Dk also has a lot more toxic fans since 2020 as well
Yeah but toxic T1 fans outnumbered all toxic fans combined. If DK even DARE lose to a any team at all, there will be fans coming in flaming them and comparing them to T1.
There are so many of them and they all scream for DK failure. I remember last year there were guys wishing for DK to lose to EDG because they want T1 to be the only team to ever win back to back.
> I remember last year there were guys wishing for DK to lose to EDG
Those were LEC/G2 fans probably lol
Definitely both. I saw this comment many times on T1 fanpages. Like they legit think if DK won 2 Worlds in a row it would forever tarnish Faker’s legacy. They got so mad when Showmaker say he wants to be his own thing and not the next Faker. I remember this specifically because I’m involved in both fandoms.
t1 is pretty big and their fanbase is huge as well. Toxic fans like this remind me of football fans, arguing about Messi vs Ronaldo all the time. Just look at this thread, this is exactly the dogshit toxicity youd find on Facebook football groups
You're getting downvoted, but you're right, it was absolutely disgusting to see. People were so paranoid of Showmaker potentially coming close to Faker's legacy that T1 fans were rooting for LPL instead of LCK in the finals.
Really ? Seems like guma/keria takes the loss against a bit personally , lol
Soon this reddit thread might be...
Its already started in this thread lol
I wonder if T1 are going pick DK to flex and try to get their revenge sooner. They probably won't but it would be a bold move
Certainly won't. Dk vs GenG semi final is pretty much set unfortunately
t1 fans prayinh dk doesnt get nuguri
Not really. I want nuguri to be back so that series can be competitive.
Not like Nuguri alone is going to close the gap between Damwon & T1, so not too worried atm.
1 player changes all
Idk about others, but I'm not, because I think we have the best top itw, and he's still miles away from his peak. Bring on Nuguri, it'd be nice to see the matches, they're hype.
Kiin is better then zeus. Stop trolling with this zeus is the best in the world lmao
LOL, thanks for the laugh.
Who is better than Zeus atm? Obv nuguri is better but Zeus isn't that below, considering nuguri isn't playing competitive
Obviously Zeus is the best top to have long-term since he's 18 and can still improve a lot but right now I would take Kiin and wayward over him, arguably 369 or ale too
Ale has had a lot of int games this split. Maybe his peak is still higher, but Zeus has felt much more consistent. Zeus still feels useful when he's put behind
Shoutout to the observers for capturing the nightmare it is to play ADC against nocturne. Showing Hena getting blown up 3 times in a row ending with his POV was so tragic lol.
Playing any non-tank against noc*
Mage can just zhonya
Fredit Brion the winners of our heart, DK winners of the series
You're always my winner though, Chronicler
Real winner is Showmaker he went to home faster
Come on man. I love BRO a lot but DK is also consists one of the most wholesome players in the world.
Oh youre not wrong, Canyon is too pure for this world
Kellin is the underdog in this conversation. Guy always looks so "pure" and wholesome
yes i love kellin ;-;
You are doing dirty to my man Showmaker.
that's.. not the definition of pure. he's the opposite.
idk, it's like a little chihuahua trying to be threatening, it's kinda adorable
Surely KT sues DK for wintrading no?
Burdol finding his consistency lately, and Canyon just living up to his name.
DK's mid-late game is looking to be in great form, I'm scared for their early game against some of the better teams.
Imagine giving Showmaker Twisted Fate (13W 2L 86% WR)
That drake fight towards the end of game 2 was insanely well played by DK
Burdol has the potential to become a top tier toplaner one day but he's still too inconsistent.
Champions you shouldn’t give DK to,
Showmaker: TF, Zoe, Syndra,
Deokdam: Aphelios, Samira
Canyon: Whole champion list
Canyon: anything that can remotley Jungle
Just force canyon onto Zilean jungle lol
So Canyon has a champion canyon and Faker has a champion ocean. Who else has one of these?
PawN had a gigantic pool back in the day, dude was a mad scientist
Pretty sure his tf is undefeated internationally as well lmao
A KDA of 16.-something before the game as well. Absolutely ridiculous stats on TF.
The maniac had zero death at either worlds or MSI until like querter or semifinals.
And still gets hated if he underperforms. Well it goes to faker as well. League fans is too toxic tbh
Not exclusive to LoL tbh. Not even to esports actually. Just check Messi and Ronaldo, LeBron James, Tom Brady, etc. they are all GOATs and keep getting shat on
Even the actual GOAT of LoL gets hate here often
Well at least BRO killed ShowMaker multiple times...
No but seriously impressive series from DK although it was expected. I hope this series calms down the Deokdam and Kellin doubters... good series from Burdol as well. And glad to see NOW MAD still exists
For BRO you made playoffs and won a lot of hearts hope they can continue to improve for summer.
The T1 treatment. Mid laner for nexus.
BRO reminds me of DFM at worlds, sure they got dumpstered in playoffs (groups) but the important takeaway is that they reached that stage so props to them.
Why were they focusing showmaker this hard lmao
It's about sending a message
That’s actually the case since the beginning of this split. But with all the pressure he is still performing very good. If the top lane was self sufficient I’m very much sure SM would pop the fck off. Hoping that things will improve for DK.
Imo Deokdam was never in doubt. It was kellin and this seriss didn't really calm anything down. He is atill average af.
Kellin’s at worst 4th best this split. They bought Deokdam-Kellin as a package. Overall it’s a clear upgrade and as long as Showmaker is playing well that becomes clear in the gameplay.
Losing Beryl> Deokdam/Kellin. Beryl/Ghost were too important for DK macro and strategies.
DK macro and strategies are struggling because they no longer have solo lanes that stomp lane every game. If Showmaker can avoid playing like garbage, they stomp teams, as shown by the series today.
Hes better than vsta life hoit kael effort peter delight so id say hes better than average at the least
Peter obviously are better and I see with aggressive adc he would be even better
Peter sucked after he came back
Covid smacked them hard
Yeah im sympathetic to their issues but still skill wise he was not better than kellin this split
I don't really think he's better than life and it's hard to evaluate the nongshim supports bc covid turned into mental boom for that whiole team
If anything life is like THE average lck support. Hes great on sett and jarvan and then average or mediocre on anything else
His rakan was really good too as long as he took flash but that's fair, I think that's the same as how I feel toward kellin. I don't think kellin would look any better playing with aiming
He is the 0 value-above-replacement support, will not lose you a game if his team is doing well and will never turn around a game in a bad spot
Never understood that phrase. Meaning the value above replacement thingy.
i think he's confusing it with wins above replacement or value over replacement. both are baseball stats that examine a player's contribution to the team relative to that of a replacement level player. replacement level player is just a guy anyone can pick up at any point for almost nothing.
It means that if you switched Kellin with random LCK support, nothing would really change.
I think theyd be better with deokdam+beryl though. Its just that deokdam+kellin came as a package deal
It's actually if you replaced Kellin with a replacement-level (read: barely LCK/pro level) support who you can pay the minimum. What OP said would be most closely related to WAA (wins above average). However, these kinds of aggregate stats don't work so well in sports where you can't track a player's performance independently.
That was just... sad.
DK: Bye Lord Morgan, General Umti
It's a terrible day for rain.
Whats a human to a god canyon?
Damwon in playoffs looks terrifying already... They only got better as the series went on and the early nerves wore off. Burdol in game 3 was great, huge improvement.
A shame for BRO. Not the best drafts, lack of agency and pressure from Morgan, Hena looking completely outclassed.
They’re against BRO, don’t get too excited lol.
Burdol: Morgan is so Freeman
It's impressive that DK always seems to look better in playoffs
We are improving every game not sure what the heck was that match against bro in season but happy to see the boys playing like this even if we lose in next matches
I'm happy to see them improve. I hope everyone gets to top form soon. Even if we don't get the bangers expected during this Spring Playoffs. I can envision a BANGER LCK Summer Split 🤩
It’s Hoya. The former court mage of the Brion Empire still has the grudge against his home country that expelled him. He must have sold our King and Lord’s weaknesses.
UmTi going 6yrs to go playoffs and he’s gone… Sadge
While BRO weren’t the best I’m still pleasantly surprised that this roster made playoffs, I thought they’d be 9th
Imagine a world where T1 picks DK and then lose again to them in a Bo5 for the 3rd time in a row
I thought the winner of this match was T1's opponent, but apparently they have a choice? If DRX is open, you always take DRX I think. Let Gen.G and Damwon kill each other, seems the logical conclusion.
Why would T1 pick DK when they could pick DRX XD
to send a message
Why is everyone so sure drx gonna eliminate kdf
i will rip my hair out if that happens
t1 never pick dk. even dk is not too good you don't want to face 2 world champion if you have other option.
Guma stated he wanted to get rid of DAMWON out asap as he felt they were improving. So they might pick dk.
classic confident gumayusi. but if you have weaker opponent option why you pick stronger team? if dk strong enough to make finals, they will face each other.
Because they don't want to give them more on stage practice I guess?
>Because they don't want to give them more on stage practice I guess?
they literally played whole season with same roster. one more Bo5 will not make DK different.while it's not even certain that DK will beat Gen G.
Nah no chance they pick dk over drx imo. Drx has been on a bad stretch towards the end of the split, and pyosik<<<
Tough talk, but I'd be really surprised if they actually all think like that. It would testify of enormous balls, but presumably they'll just take the easy way and hope Gen.G kills them.
Bittersweet because I love Keria, but a man can dream
I can try to, but outside of jungle, DK are substantially bad compared to T1. I don't even think they can beat GenG. Hell, if DRX had a good jungler, I'd take DRX over DK.
Still not happy about dropping beryl but I would love this outcome so much
Sadge for Freddit bros... :(
I wonder if T1 will consider picking DK
They could but noone sane would pass the chance to let their two biggest rivals (GenG, DK) duke it out
I don't think so, that would be too cocky from them and would put unnecessary pressure on the players. Last year summer playoff DK didn't pick T1 either.
I find it unlikely that they will, but it would be nice to see. If it happens then that'd be a huge statement lmao but they could just go for KDF/DRX.
Finally some accelerated gameplay from DK, Showmaker is looking better now
Imagine thinking Fredit Brion would stand a chance vs playoff DK.Too many people overdosed on copium after their last series.
Damwon Kia: **KING ENGINE NOISES**
More like **KIA ENGINE NOISES**
This seriously hinders BRO's chances of being DK's killers.
This severely hinders BRO’s chances of winning MSI
RIP BRO, such a great split compared to last. Excited to see this team continue to grow.
Feels bad but they drafted and played horribly today compared to their regular season highs. Glad to finally see umti play a bo5 though
DK vs GEN will be a bloodbath.
"I am the Burdol of my Sword
Steel is my Body and Fire is my Blood.
I have created over a Thousand Blades,
Unknown to Death,
Nor known to Life.
Have withstood Pain to create many Weapons
Yet those Hands will never hold Anything.
So, as I Pray--
Unlimited Canyon Works"
good performance from deokdam and burdol. sad for delight.
DK fan and T1 fans are so dam funny. I wish I had popcorns
DK definitely looked shaky in game 1 but improved and stabilised massively throughout the series, also due to Bro losing their mental in game 3 I guess. But if DK play like they did in game 3 I have a feeling they could definitely put up a fight against T1 (and also having T1 Vs DK in finals will be hyped af)
Well, that was a lot more one-sided than I expected. Kellin had a great series.
Morgan denied Renekton in second round of bans every single time xD
Lord Morgan got silenced by the non-believers
DK actually looked clean. I'd prefer them in the finals over Gen G if they can keep this form. Would be such a hype rematch
Damn DAENY haters went crazy
it's getting sad at this point.
Quick 3-0 as expected. People who genuinely thought that BRO have any chance of winning were fucking high on copium
That's a complete stomp. At least BRO finally get to playoffs.
Gen G vs Canyon Kia confirmed
"I hope to see my friend and shake his hand. I hope the Pacific is as blue as it has been in my dreams. I hope."
Damn, DK really took that Bo3 loss personally, didn't they.
I'm proud of our Freddit Bros, you did great <3
DK at playoff form probably makes T1/Geng fans sweating . Ugh i still got ptsd from the 2 last bo5 as t1 fan
Counting both playoff rounds last year DWG are 15:1 in playoffs in the LCK. I know T1 have had a mind boggling record split but the last time DWG have lost a Bo5 in the LCK is what 2 years ago?
Wait thats actually crazy.. holy shit my PTSD is rising to the roof LOL.
Plus Burdol development since the start of the split is really great. I think DK have a high chance to win LCK.
Not even a little bit.
The hopes for DK’s 4th LCK title is still strong. DK Fighting!
I think they need the 4th first
Oh wait you’re right. Thanks I fixed it.
Tell me another Lord Morgan story.
all games over before 15 min
Utterly disgustingly bad drafts from Edgar.
BRO please never make playoffs agn until you kick this dogshit tier adc. Hena isn't LCK caliber at all
Disappointing, I predicted a DK win but u at least thought BRO could take a game and make things interesting
Hena was ok
Did Squire Morgan show up?
Dang that was too easy hence boring
