Posted 6th July 2018 By: Derpina    100 Views
Esports News – Riot Games’ League of Legends Pro League saw its most surprising and action-packed season yet. As fans and viewers anticipate the emergence of unbeatable teams at the end of Week 3, it seems like the participating teams failed to meet everyone’s expectations. Both Rogue Warriors and Invictus Gaming, the last remaining unbeatable teams, were handed losses this week. But regardless of this unfortunate result, let us take a look back at the journey of East and West Regions. The current standings has set up a three-way tie for first in the East Region and a two-way tie in the West Region as the teams progress to the Rift Rivals break.
East region highlights
East Region is the busiest region of all. The peak of this week involved the most-awaited battle between Invictus (5-1) and Royal Never Give Up (5-1), the dominating teams of the summer split series. Invictus, however, was known to lead the game in 1-0 after their notable appearances in IEM Season VI. China now crowns the team as the king of the regular season. Despite the track record of their opponent, Royal Never Give Up put Jian “Uzi” Zi-Hao, their bot laner and AD carry, on the spotlight to lead them to victory and rattle off a combined 14/3/11 KDA (kills/deaths/assists) in the final two games. He brought his team to the top of the standings, not minding the intimidating status of Invictus. One of the last teams with an unbeatable record, Invictus, has fallen into the hands of Royal Never Give Up in a clean 3-2 victory.
West region highlights
The West region witnessed Edward Gaming (5-1) beating Rogue Warriors (5-1) in a battle of the top teams in the region’s standings. All battles between the current top 3 of the East went as far as three games and concluded with a whimper, but this one quickly ended with a bang. Edward Gaming struck Rogue Warriors and earned a 2-0 victory in a span of nearly 2 hours in-game time. The winning team flaunted an impressive advantage of 43-to-12 kills during the quick series. This was a step up to Rogue’s previous loss against Topsports, and an addition to their victories against Snake Esports and Team WE.
