Esports News – The LoL Worlds Finals is on. Only 2 teams remain in the competition, and both are set to settle the 2019 champions on November 10 at the AccorHotels Arena in Paris. We’ll soon see G2 Esports and Funplus Phoenix take the crown from defending champion Invictus Gaming.
The two LoL teams, G2 Esports and Funplus Phoenix, took down South Korean legendary team SK Telecom T1 and defending champion Invictus Gaming in a BO5 series. Surprisingly, both games resulted in upsets. The majority of players and analysts involved in the competition are expecting SKT and IG to clash in the finals.
Here’s a quick recap of the matches that went down:
G2 Esports vs SK Telecom T1
The entire series is a trading game. What can we expect? We have two of the most powerful LoL teams in one match. The matchup even reached 3,985,787 peak viewers in the last two games, making this year’s Worlds as one of the most-watched tournaments on Twitch, YouTube, Facebook, AfreecaTV, Garena Live, and Naver.
SKT began the game with jungler Kim “Clid” Tae-min and top laner Kim “Khan” Dong-ha in front. The team gained the early lead, but G2 Esports eventually understood what’s happening and what to do about it. In every game, they fought for survival. G2 Esports found several mistakes and loopholes on how SKT star player Lee “Faker” Sang-hyeok play his cards.
In the last two games, there was an obvious abundance of team synergy among G2 Esports’ members—with Marcin “Jankos” Jankowski leading all the action. In the end, G2 took down the most successful team in LoL history.
Funplus Phoenix vs Invictus Gaming
Analysts confirmed that IG players are individually better than FPX players, but their inner workings as a team will determine the results. In four games, Funplus Phoenix gained total domination over Invictus Gaming.
FPX’s jungler Gao “Tian” Tian-Liang earned MVP honors by defeating opposing star players like Kang “TheShy” Seung-lok and Song “Rookie” Eui-jin in team fights. The defending champion had no answers for FPX’s attacks, especially in the first two maps.
Down to the last game, Tian was assisted by Kim “Doinb” Tae-sang and Liu “Crisp” Qing-Song to seal multiple kills. They cornered IG’s top players and ended the game with a 3-1 victory.
