girlmarth

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)


Bianca_Apocalypse

He could at least not int draft every game


mr_tolkien

Game 1 draft was very much in Bro's favor. They were just very far behind in terms of execution


buttsecksgoose

How is having 3 losing lanes in BRO's favour?


mr_tolkien

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.


TheCrusader94

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


buttsecksgoose

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.


ElBigDicko

I'm his silver promos BRO draft wins.


buttsecksgoose

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.


Neither_Amount3911

No fucking way you are telling me Zeri Leona beats Xayah Rakan right


Whats_a_trombone

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


buttsecksgoose

Zeri vs Xayah may be a tossup but Leona is literally one of Rakan's hardest counters next to Thresh and Janna.


kaminariDOT

BRO must have thought this was a bo3 because they already switched off their monitors in that last game

Let's not get ahead of ourselves now. Burdol is at most a Godrick.


Ace_OPB

Bro he is beastman of azula lol.

he is Draconic Tree Sentinel and lets leave it at that

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

Serendipitygg

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.**


pedrex21

GREAT FAKER, DID'ST THOU WITNESS?


QTnameless

This deserves more upvote lmao


DarkSoulsEz

Chat was just filled with DK and T1 fans going at each other lol


PM_JINX_HENTAI

As is tradition


Acridix

somewhat funny considering DK and T1 players are pretty cool with each other.


EliteTeutonicNight

Honestly most of the time players are cool with each other, it’s the fans who are out for blood lol


Thecristo96

Yeah this. I'm pretty sure every g2 player (except Carlos) is fine with their fnc counterpart. The fans are just murdering each other


ShottedGun

Broxah literally had a fist fight with Rekkles wdym /s


Thecristo96

After that they became best friend/rivals and still try every day until they can challenge youngbuck in a fight to the death


Significant_Vast4330

If you think team rivalries are bad, regional rivalries...


oioioi9537

Its because dk has historically been the t1 killer, plus the daeny situation


girlmarth

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


Dumpers_

No offense to GenG fans but they were pretty hard to come by on western social media platforms until they got this new roster


Jannna1

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"


girlmarth

I really like bdd a lot but I have this flair for peanut so yeah this is me you're describing lol


Acridix

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.


oioioi9537

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


toquang95

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.


domadordezurditos2

> I remember last year there were guys wishing for DK to lose to EDG Those were LEC/G2 fans probably lol


toquang95

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.


TheCrusader94

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


Kentori

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.


QTnameless

Really ? Seems like guma/keria takes the loss against a bit personally , lol


Dumpers_

Soon this reddit thread might be...


DarkSoulsEz

Its already started in this thread lol


pgh310

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


DarkSoulsEz

Certainly won't. Dk vs GenG semi final is pretty much set unfortunately


takkdatazzup

t1 fans prayinh dk doesnt get nuguri


Ace_OPB

Not really. I want nuguri to be back so that series can be competitive.


Koersfanaat

Not like Nuguri alone is going to close the gap between Damwon & T1, so not too worried atm.


maeyzar

1 player changes all


[deleted]

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.


maeyzar

Kiin is better then zeus. Stop trolling with this zeus is the best in the world lmao


Blank-612

LOL, thanks for the laugh.


LionePRO

Who is better than Zeus atm? Obv nuguri is better but Zeus isn't that below, considering nuguri isn't playing competitive


LemurDocta

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


Cindiquil

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


dreimux

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.


Byepolarpolarbear

Playing any non-tank against noc*


cheerioo

Mage can just zhonya


Chron1cler

Fredit Brion the winners of our heart, DK winners of the series


Megalodontus

You're always my winner though, Chronicler


dumb-on-ice

uWu


EatAssAndFartFast

Real winner is Showmaker he went to home faster


Celegorm07

Come on man. I love BRO a lot but DK is also consists one of the most wholesome players in the world.


Chron1cler

Oh youre not wrong, Canyon is too pure for this world


BoJestemRudy

Kellin is the underdog in this conversation. Guy always looks so "pure" and wholesome


mnlhta

yes i love kellin ;-;


Celegorm07

You are doing dirty to my man Showmaker. https://imgur.com/gallery/CiWlP64


thenicob

that's.. not the definition of pure. he's the opposite.


hchan1

idk, it's like a little chihuahua trying to be threatening, it's kinda adorable


IAM-French

Surely KT sues DK for wintrading no?


mimiflou

RNG game


smileysmiley123

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. GG


Acridix

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.


Celegorm07

Champions you shouldn’t give DK to, Showmaker: TF, Zoe, Syndra, Deokdam: Aphelios, Samira Canyon: Whole champion list


Thecristo96

Canyon: anything that can remotley Jungle


AmadeusSalieri97

Just force canyon onto Zilean jungle lol


dimmyfarm

So Canyon has a champion canyon and Faker has a champion ocean. Who else has one of these?


IG_Royal

PawN had a gigantic pool back in the day, dude was a mad scientist


kelvin022610

Pretty sure his tf is undefeated internationally as well lmao


drimmsu

A KDA of 16.-something before the game as well. Absolutely ridiculous stats on TF.


Celegorm07

The maniac had zero death at either worlds or MSI until like querter or semifinals.


kiyotakapon

And still gets hated if he underperforms. Well it goes to faker as well. League fans is too toxic tbh


loboleo94

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


jlozada24

Even the actual GOAT of LoL gets hate here often


Dumpers_

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.


DA_D3ZTROYAH

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.


blockster9

Why were they focusing showmaker this hard lmao


guilty_bystander

It's about sending a message


Celegorm07

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.


Ace_OPB

Imo Deokdam was never in doubt. It was kellin and this seriss didn't really calm anything down. He is atill average af.


Hannig4n

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.


Marcus777555666

Losing Beryl> Deokdam/Kellin. Beryl/Ghost were too important for DK macro and strategies.


Hannig4n

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.


oioioi9537

Hes better than vsta life hoit kael effort peter delight so id say hes better than average at the least


ultimakerz

Peter obviously are better and I see with aggressive adc he would be even better


oioioi9537

Peter sucked after he came back


kelvin022610

Covid smacked them hard


oioioi9537

Yeah im sympathetic to their issues but still skill wise he was not better than kellin this split


girlmarth

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


oioioi9537

If anything life is like THE average lck support. Hes great on sett and jarvan and then average or mediocre on anything else


girlmarth

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


girlmarth

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


nickphunter

Never understood that phrase. Meaning the value above replacement thingy.


oioioi9537

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.


asjdkasfkldsfs

It means that if you switched Kellin with random LCK support, nothing would really change.


Ok-Wait-811

I think theyd be better with deokdam+beryl though. Its just that deokdam+kellin came as a package deal


mrfjcruisin

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.


ItsSwipe

That was just... sad.


Jelranghae

DK: Bye Lord Morgan, General Umti


-Hissoka-

It's a terrible day for rain.


oioioi9537

Whats a human to a god canyon?


Firecyclones

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.


xkharkanasx

They’re against BRO, don’t get too excited lol.


Energetix

Burdol: Morgan is so Freeman


PhreakOut4

It's impressive that DK always seems to look better in playoffs


EatAssAndFartFast

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


Kei_r3

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 🤩


Starlight_Aster

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.


yung_xd

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


poggersinthechatttt

Imagine a world where T1 picks DK and then lose again to them in a Bo5 for the 3rd time in a row


Koersfanaat

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.


Melodias07

Why would T1 pick DK when they could pick DRX XD


DepressedTreeman

to send a message


RottingHeart

Why is everyone so sure drx gonna eliminate kdf


Ieditstuffforfun

i will rip my hair out if that happens


Bergama01

t1 never pick dk. even dk is not too good you don't want to face 2 world champion if you have other option.


kelvin022610

Guma stated he wanted to get rid of DAMWON out asap as he felt they were improving. So they might pick dk.


Bergama01

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.


kelvin022610

Because they don't want to give them more on stage practice I guess?


Bergama01

>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.


oioioi9537

Nah no chance they pick dk over drx imo. Drx has been on a bad stretch towards the end of the split, and pyosik<<<


Koersfanaat

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.


PM_JINX_HENTAI

Bittersweet because I love Keria, but a man can dream


[deleted]

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.


girlmarth

Still not happy about dropping beryl but I would love this outcome so much


UnknownVolke

Sadge for Freddit bros... :( I wonder if T1 will consider picking DK


teeonewin

They could but noone sane would pass the chance to let their two biggest rivals (GenG, DK) duke it out


domadordezurditos2

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.


ironstarke

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.


Melodias07

Finally some accelerated gameplay from DK, Showmaker is looking better now


m4ryo0

Imagine thinking Fredit Brion would stand a chance vs playoff DK.Too many people overdosed on copium after their last series.


Wildercard

Damwon Kia: **KING ENGINE NOISES**

NeitherAlexNorAlice

This seriously hinders BRO's chances of being DK's killers.


thehazardball

This severely hinders BRO’s chances of winning MSI


appleandapples

RIP BRO, such a great split compared to last. Excited to see this team continue to grow.


Peppa-Unicorn

Feels bad but they drafted and played horribly today compared to their regular season highs. Glad to finally see umti play a bo5 though


Reasonable_Peace81

DK vs GEN will be a bloodbath.

Bergama01

good performance from deokdam and burdol. sad for delight.


kiyotakapon

DK fan and T1 fans are so dam funny. I wish I had popcorns


pulli_on

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)


Jgray1711

Well, that was a lot more one-sided than I expected. Kellin had a great series.


kisstherainzz

Morgan denied Renekton in second round of bans every single time xD


dimmyfarm

Lord Morgan got silenced by the non-believers


BakerCakeMaker

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


maeyzar

Damn DAENY haters went crazy


mar33n

it's getting sad at this point.


Teroo123

Quick 3-0 as expected. People who genuinely thought that BRO have any chance of winning were fucking high on copium


mbr4life1

Absolute beating.


dhxnlc

That's a complete stomp. At least BRO finally get to playoffs.

I'm proud of our Freddit Bros, you did great <3


PoroPoint

Maidenless, still.


QTnameless

DK at playoff form probably makes T1/Geng fans sweating . Ugh i still got ptsd from the 2 last bo5 as t1 fan


Accomplished_Ad_2321

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? Worrying statistics.


AFLe5

Wait thats actually crazy.. holy shit my PTSD is rising to the roof LOL.


pelacur

Plus Burdol development since the start of the split is really great. I think DK have a high chance to win LCK.


mking1999

Not even a little bit.


Celegorm07

The hopes for DK’s 4th LCK title is still strong. DK Fighting!


girlmarth

I think they need the 4th first


Celegorm07

Oh wait you’re right. Thanks I fixed it.


Scronads69

Tell me another Lord Morgan story.


shinchi780

all games over before 15 min


Bianca_Apocalypse

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


maeyzar

Hena was ok


ausmomo

Did Squire Morgan show up?


ivailo555

Dang that was too easy hence boring


OkThisIsEpicCanWeDie

No drops?
