T1 had a very difficult match against KDF and in this victory, once again, Faker played the role of “savior”.
A few hours ago, T1 had a rematch with Kwangdong Freecs (KDF) in the second leg of the LCK Summer 2022 group stage. This is a meaningful match for both teams. T1 needs a win to prolong the series of good results and avenge KDF – the only opponent who defeated them in the first leg. Meanwhile, Teddy and his teammates also need to win to keep their hopes up in the playoffs.
And the match took place, in a way, it can be said to be quite thrilling and attractive. However, the fact that the two teams made a lot of mistakes also made the professional quality of the match not overestimated. T1 finally won game 3 thanks to the star moments of the players, typically Faker. Meanwhile, KDF failed even though they had quite a few advantages.
The League of Legends community also said that this was a not-so-excellent match from both teams. T1 and KDF themselves could have played better if the players had been more focused. There were even moments during the match where only a few names were still performing well, like FATE, Kiin (KDF) or Zeus, Oner, Faker (T1).
However, game 3 can be said to be a pretty good game for Faker. The “Demon King” dealings with general Taliyah, although not giving him too many kills, Faker contributed to almost all of T1’s kills.
But obviously, T1 cannot be satisfied with this match despite winning. T1’s difficult game will likely put them in a more difficult situation if they encounter “tough” opponents like DWG KIA or Gen.G Esports.
