Esports News – The League of Legends Mid-Season International (MSI) brings teams from pole to pole to battle against one another and to determine the best of the best in the international LoL scene. After the tournament’s spring split seasons, the most thrilling part of the LoL tournament begins with a bang. Unfortunately for non-South Korean teams, it’s a shot in the dark to defeat all the South Korean teams attending the event. It’s impossible until today.
China’s Royal Never Give Up (RNG) has never given up the struggle nor bowed their heads against the fury of South Korean team Kingzone Dragon X (KZ). They put an end to the nearly-unstoppable reign of South Korean teams since the origin of the Major tournaments and went home with LoL MSI 2018 title.
Grand final recal
Surprisingly, the MSI final became the most watched esports match in history. A total of 127,551,726 live spectators around the world (majority of whom were from China) had tuned in to witness a shocking moment in LoL’s history. Who wouldn’t want to watch RNG defeat a South Korean team?
RNG garnered a 3-1 victory in the finals. In game one, both teams started strong but the first blood kill was inflicted 9 minutes after the game. It was secured by Han “Peanut” Wang-Ho, the Jungler of KZ. Consequently, RNG claimed the bonus gold and destroyed KZ’s first tower and first dragon. KZ went back for two more kills and assault, thanks to Gwak “Bdd” Bo-seong. A fourth kill attack to RNG nearly made the team panicked over the 25-minute mark but KZ’s nexus couldn’t handle the assault on their base, giving RNG the victory.
KZ again secured the first blood in game two. After surrounding RNG’s Ad Carry Jian “Uzi” Zi-Hao, the first taste of victory was theirs. Repeating the order in game one, RNG again secured the first dragon, while KZ earned the first turret. A 5-5 tie prolonged the agony of both teams but KZ took down RNGs base in the end.
Game three and four ended with 1-2 and 1-3 winning streaks from RNG. KZ lost their defenses in both finales, granting RNG free passes to secure the first blood and the first barron. RNG pushed through and went straight to KZ’s nexus. They made the route to the final look like a shortcut.
