In front of an opponent who is too strong and is competing on a sublime momentum like T1, the 2022 Summer LCK champion – Gen.G sadly sets a top 2 goal for his journey.
Closing the 7th week of the LCK Spring 2023, Gen.G had a convincing 2-0 victory over BRO and entered the playoffs. However, this achievement has not been able to bring the defending champion to the top 1 position on the rankings. Accordingly, with a record of 10 wins and 4 losses, Gen. G is currently in the top 3 and still has a chance to compete for the top spot with T1.
In fact, it is also very difficult for Gen.G to win the top rank, although in theory, Gen.G is only 3 points away from the top of T1’s table. However, with the current performance of T1 and his teammates, their upcoming opponents are all much underestimated. It is very unlikely that Faker and his teammates lose 3 matches and can be overtaken by Gen.G in the last 2 weeks.
With the current reality, Gen.G’s Score coach therefore does not put too much weight on the top 1 achievement for his team. This coach is ready to admit that they have “surrendered” in the race with T1 and only set the goal of the top 2.
“I feel very happy to be together with the players who won tickets to the upcoming playoffs. As for the race against T1, it’s hard to beat them at the moment. Our more reasonable goal would be 2nd place to have more time to prepare for the playoffs,” Coach Score shared with Inven.
Achieving the top 2 goal with Gen.G is not difficult. In the near future, they will face a direct competitor, DK. If you defeat DK, the possibility of Gen.G getting the top 2 and a place in the 2nd round of the LCK Spring 2023 playoffs is relatively large.
