Many viewers watching T1’s performance couldn’t help but wonder which team could win against T1 in the last unbeaten streak.
Recently in the highlight match of week 9 of LCK Spring 2023, T1 defeated Dplus KIA (DK) with a quick score of 2-0. This victory helped Faker and his teammates own 12 consecutive winning streaks, confirming “above” many opponents in the LCK. That’s why many people have questioned whether any new team can beat T1 at the moment.
This question was then analyzed by experts and Caedrel BLV pointed out that there are 3 teams in the world that have a chance to win T1 at the moment. Accordingly, he evaluates EDward Gaming (EDG), LNG Esports (LNG) and even G2 Esports (G2) as the teams that possess the elements that can win when facing Faker and his brothers.
BLV Caedrel said: “I think EDG and LNG are the teams that have a chance to beat T1. They are in high form and there are individuals who shine in recent times. Don’t forget we still have G2. is a team with extremely fast play in the first 10 minutes of the game. This can make it difficult for T1 when they go head to head.”
In fact, facing T1 the best way to win against them is to play quickly and actively engage in combat. This will contribute to limiting the T1’s strongest point is the ability to control the map (macro). As an example, in the last match against Hanwha Life Esports (HLE), T1 failed in a game when the opponent played so actively.
Famous for their constant fighting style, teams like EDG, LNG will have a chance to defeat T1. As for G2, this team is also using a continuous fighting style with champions like Kled, Draven, Thresh… So perhaps the team understands that to defeat T1 there is no other way but to hit fast and active.
The above comment of BLV Caedrel is only based on the play of the teams in the region. Things would be very different if these teams really faced T1. Hopefully at the upcoming MSI 2023, EDGs, LNG, G2s can make it difficult or defeat big opponents like T1 with their active play.
